Yuichi takes the time to truly listen, then customizes to client's needs, is supremely patient, knowledgeable, will do necessary research for any request and really caters to each traveler. As a college graduate in English literature, his command of the English language and Japanese history is quite impressive so communication was easy which made our tour even more enjoyable and informative. 8 hours went by so fast because he is so entertaining. Yuichi goes above and beyond. Yuichi will give you 200 per cent plus. You will be lucky if Yuichi accepts your request. And if Yuichi excuses himself to use his cell, know that he is detailed-oriented and is confirming your next appointment. Yuichi is your consumate tour guide extraordinaire!!!!! Highly-recommended!!!!
