Yes, in that case, I'll be able to meet you at the port and take you back to the ship after the tour.

Can we make the school visit shorter and spend more time on seeing the sights?

Yes, in that case, you could visit more sightseeing spots and spend just a few hours at school. I could tailor your school visit the way you would like me to, especially the activities you would experience with the students at school.

Do we have to eat school lunch?

No, not necessarily. If you don't want to try the lunch, we could eat at a nearby restaurant before we visit the school. I can show you the menu in adavance, though.

Yes, but in that case, you could only visit 'Tsuru no Mai Bridge over Tsugaru Fujimi Lake and Crane Nature Park,' which are located near the schools.

“ Great tour of Hakodate with Yuki ”

Our group of 8 spent the day touring Hakodate with Yuki in a private van hired for the day. We enjoyed our visit to Hakodate and all the sites that Yuki managed to pack into our short stay. Our lunch stop was especially memorable as we all tried different things. We were fortunate to experience the last days of the cherry blossoms in northern Japan - Yuki understood our wishes and ensured that we had a fabulous view of the blossoms at the Goryokaku Park, and the view from the Goryokaku Tower was wonderful. We highly recommend Hiroyuki to any group or couple looking for a knowledgeable guide in Japan

Hiroyuki:

Dall, how have you been? Fine, I hope. Time flies! It's been two months already since we met in Hakodate. I guess the people in your group have exchanged their wonderful memories with each other. I really enjoyed myself with you. Yes, I still remember taking orders from all of you and I was glad the foods each of you ordered were served just as you did. To tell you the truth, I was a bit nervous at that time as you tried different things. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the lunch. Well, you made me feel confident about that. Thanks! Oh, thank you also for showing me how to use AirDrop. That function has really worked, and I've showed my clients how to use that since then. Anyway, I can't forget about you and your group, and I really had a very good time with each of you. Please keep in touch with me. Yuki

“ Best tour ever ”

We booked many private tours on this trip to Japan,but Yuki was the best tour guide. His English is outstanding, his knowledge of Aomori was excellent, he was fun and flexible and he took us to a restaurant frequented by locals that was both great and very inexpensive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Yuki very highly.

Hiroyuki:

Hi, Cheryl Thanks for your quick response with your real satisfaction with the tour. Your words of encouragement have made me feel how wonderful this job is! I really appreciate it. I'm glad your group really enjoyed the tour to Hirosaki. I also enjoyed being with you very much. In fact, I felt from what we had exchanged your kind personality. So Cheryl, I was really looking forward to meeting you. I truly believe we could finish our tour successfully because of you and other members in your group who were very nice and cooperative. Thank you again and I do hope we can see each other again sometime in the future. Yuki

“ Excellent guide ”

We used guides throughout Japan on our trip and Hiroyuki or Yuki spoke the best English. Highly recommend.

Hiroyuki:

Hi Ron, Hope you and your wife returned to the States safe and sound. It's my good memory that I took you to the Nebuta Museum and the Seiryuji Temple. I hope you enjoyed the temple with the Great Statue of Buddha, the five-storied pagoda and the dry landscape garden. And you must have really enjoyed the Nebuta parade at night. I'll be looking forward to seeing you again. Yuki

“ Pleasant day with Yuki ”

We were glad to have Yuki as our private tour guide in Hakodate. He was very prompt, attentive and thoughtful in adjusting our itinerary. He showed us the beautiful sights by using public transportation.

Hiroyuki:

Hi Yvonne, I hope everything was all right with you and your family until you came back to the States. I really enjoyed being with you all as your family members were all nice. I'm very happy I could show you around Hakodate. If you have another chance to come to Hakodate, please let me know. I'll take you to some other attractive places in the outskirts of Hakodate. Yuki

“ Great tour! ”

The tour was well thought out and organized. Also, Yuki was flexible and able to make last minute changes to the tour based upon weather. We had a great time!

Hiroyuki:

Hi Paul, Thanks for your comments. I'm glad to hear you had a great time here in Hakodate. I enjoyed myself with you, seeing hot spring monkeys and eating sukiyaki. If you have another chance to come to Hakodate, please let me know. I'll take you to some other attractive places in the outskirts of Hakodate. Yuki
