“ Outstanding Experience ”

Takashi met us at our cruise port & we took the ship provided bus in to town. We were open to any sites he wanted to show us. We could not have asked for a better tour guide. He was excited to share his home town with us and pleased to answer any questions we had. Takashi has to be in his 70’s but he walks a pace like he is in his 20’s. So be ready for some exercise (lol). I highly recommend Takashi as your guide. You will not be disappointed!

Takashi:

Dear Dollie, Thank you very much for 5-star rating by you to my tour guide service. I really appreciate your excellent praise to me. I am strongly encouraged by your wonderful comment. I've determined again to provide my best tour guide service to my customers.Thank you very much again. Best regards, Takashi

“ Magnificent ”

Incredible Takashi. Our day trip to snow corridor with him was just satisfying, though it was hectic he made our tour well fit in time. Could not think of anyone better doing this trip as Takashi. Would suggest him 100 percent to guide him to snow corridor without a doubt.

Takashi:

Dear Minal, Thank you for your wonderful comment on my tour guide service to Tateyama Kurobe Alpine route. Our tour date, April 16th was the first day when this apline route started operation for this year. So, ther were many visitors. But, we were very much lucky to be able to carry on the tour as scheduled. Thank you, Takashi

“ School Group Kanazawa Tour ”

Takashi san did a wonderful job showing an elementary school group from Australia around Kanazawa for the day. This was a group of 33 people using public transport and he was very calm and informative catering the tour to the age of the children. We would definitely recommend Takashi san for future tours.

Takashi:

Dear Kellie, Thank you very much for 5-star mark to my guide service. Kanazawa is a very beautiful city. I am proud of living in this city. I'm sure your young students had a lot of good memory of Kanazawa. I hope they will revisit this city in their life to enjoy and revive their good memory in Kanazawa. Best regards, Takashi
