We did two tours with Yuki and he was great for both. Yuki was very patient and accommodating as we shopped - our favorite thing to do. He customized our tours according to our preferences and even took us to places not included on his regular tour. We enjoyed his company so much that by the second day, Yuki felt like part of our family. Thanks, Yuki. Hope you enjoyed the chocolate macadamia nut treats from Hawaii!
We took a tour with Yuki to Kamakura. He knows the area very well. Has a good knowledge of the attractions. We enjoyed the trip.
Mr. Yuki met us very punctually. He was very informative and kept a brisk pace, allowing us to a number of sites during the day. He handled purchasing the tickets we needed to navigate about Tokyo. The restaurant he suggested for lunch was elegant, quite and out of the way (a nice break from the heat and crowds outside). I was able to have some interesting chats related to his profession, as he was a nuclear physicist. We were fortunate to have Mr. Yuki as our guide!
Thank you so much Yuki for best guide ever
We enjoyed a fantastic day tour from Tokyo to Kamakura with Yuki. He was professional but warm and friendly. He is also very high energy. His English and knowledge of various cultures/religions is excellent. In addition to his clear verbal explanations, he carries an iPad pre-loaded with photos, diagrams and other reference info to quickly assist his guests in their understanding of the various points of interest. We felt that was quite helpful. We had a few email exchanges before we arrived in Tokyo so he could plan our tour for what we wanted to see most. Much of it was left to his discretion since he is the expert. For example, he arranged the timing to take the large Sunday crowds into consideration. We either walked or took the subway. The tour was well-planned for the most efficient use of time. We saw all of the major hightlights including the large Buddha and many shrines, gardens, and temples. We also meandered through a few little shops along the way when it started to rain. (The rain was no problem at all.) Lunch was in a small noodle shop- just perfect! Later, we toured a new, ultra-modern shopping center near Tokyo Station. Very interesting! Thank you, Yuki-san for our wonderful day. When we come back to Japan, we will be sure to find you again. Cheers!
Yuki is a great tour guide. Knowledgeable and courteous. I'd recommend him to anyone in need of a guide in Japan
Kamakura used to the capital of Japan in 12th to 14th century. It was the first period governed by the samurai warriors; Shoguns.
Since they practiced Zen Buddhism, there are many Zen Temples in Kamakura like Kyoto. This tour is for those who being interested in not only the sightseeing but also in its historical background.
Let's enjoy the touring in this charming town Kamakura by bicycle! Kamakura is one of the old capital of Japan, with rich history & nature. This tour covers the scenic view points along with the beach, and some must see spots in the town, Big Buddha, Zeniarai Benten, and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine.
