“ customized experience, a trip down memory lane ”

Nobu took me off the typical tourist track, as I searched for memories of where I lived in 1965. He negotiated the trains and buses from Tokyo to Zushi to Hayama. In Hayama, we walked, I remembered, and he talked with and questioned locals. He engaged with a local lady of my age who verified that I had found the house I lived in. She and I used the same beauty shop 50+ years ago. I don't know how Nobu fit so much into one day. We also visited Kamakura, as my husband and I frequently did. We then returned to Tokyo partly via a local train that traveled along the coast and stopped at small, old stations. So, if you want a custom tour, contact Nobu. He will make it happen for you.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Susan. It was my great surprise that we could find out the house you lived in more than 50 years ago! We were luckey that we could meet the lady who knows its neighborhood well at a local restaurant. I think your passion and will for finding it out leaded us to the house.
