“ Fujiko--the best guide we had in Japan. ”

We recently had the pleasure of meeting Fujiko who gave us an awesome tour of Sado Island.

“ Outstanding "Off the Beaten Track" Tour Guide ”

Excellent
7 months ago Traveler: Neil -   Tour Guide: Fujiko

Fujiko is, quite simply, the best guide we have ever used -- anywhere. She grew up on the island -- and runs a small farm. She knows Sado Island like the back of her hand. She speaks very good English. But, the best part is that Fujiko avoided the tourist traps. She took us to unusual and interesting places - including an impromptu picnic high up in the mountains. That was the highlight of our ent...

“ One of the high points of our trip! ”

10 months ago Traveler: Tim/lynn -   Tour Guide: Fujiko

Fujiko did her best to accommodate our atypical request which took us off the beaten path including touring government offices and riding in taxi cabs. She was knowledgeable, flexible, pleasant, personable and timely. Not the usual 'tourist' tour. Knew the area. Very good communication pre-tour (by e-mail). Fluent in English and Japanese (working on French). Highly recommend her!

I highly recommend bookin a tour wi...

We experienced Interesting highlights of Niigata with Fujiko. Marketplaces, historic architecture, sake tour/tasting and the Niigata City Aquarium. Fujiko did an excellent job of coordinating the tour within the time limit, something we would not have been able to do on our own. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with Fujiko. She is an excellent guide.
