We had an excellent day with Takeshi taking us to a wonderful restaurant after our trip to the snow monkey park. He had called ahead to the park and let us know that there were no monkeys on that day to let us decide if we still wanted to go. We did, but that was an great touch that managed our expectations. We would definitely use Takeshi again if we were in the area. view more

Takeshi helped us to enjoy a fabulous day in Nagano with a very special visit to the Snow Monkeys.

My clients, Mohan Ramachandran and his family, had a wonderful tour of Nagano and Ueda with Takeshi-San. They were stunned by Zenkoji Temple, saw so many sakura groves, and had a delicious Indian lunch at a local restaurant. They really enjoyed and learned so much from Takeshi. Thank you! view more
He chose some wonderful places to visit while we were in Kiso Valley area. Just beautiful country near the Japanese alps, we even got snow in April! Takashi is knowledgable and kind, helping every step of the way with the language barrier. We stayed in a wonderful Ryokan which Takeshi helped me with, and had we know how lovely, would have carved out more time.

The tour was everything I hoped for. Takeshi pre-arranged visits to various locations through the town, including a private tour of a miso brewery by the owner. Takeshi's local knowledge and translations made for a memorable tour. view more
It was an excellent trip with Takeshi to Jigokudani Monkey Park, Zenkoji temple and nakamise, oyaki tasting, soba lunch, sake tasting, and dinner. Takeshi was very attentive to our needs especially since we come with two kids. He also brought us to a special restaurant for dinner according to our specific request. Overall trip to Nagao is very memorable and this is made possible by Takeshi’s guidance. Takeshi - I hope we have a chance to meet again in the future! Kevin view more
Takeshi was an excellent tour guide and gave great suggestions for my family. We took his suggestion to try open-fires oyaki and sake tasting. He was kind and flexible and provided great insight to Japan’s history and culture. We would not been able to cover so many places, and have an awesome day without his help. view more
Takeshi-san is an excellent guide. His English is very good as he lived and worked in the USA for many years. He is clearly highly educated, and knowledgeable. He is well organized, considerate, and friendly. We would absolutely use his services again if needed. view more
