“ Excellent Guide for Kanazawa area ”

Yoshie met us at the Kanazawa train station and took us to our hotel. She helped us make a shinkansen reservation for all my upcoming trips in Kanazawa, Takayama, Nagano and Shirakawago area. She is such a pleasure to work with. She took us around with public transportation. I traveled with my 9 and 7 years old and they didn't feel it was too much walking. Yoshie timed everything very well. I highly recommend her for those who are looking for a private guide around Kanazawa, Nagano, Takayama and Shirakawago area

YOSHIE:

Thank you so much for your kind review, Venny! I also had a great time talking to you and being with your family while we were on the tour. You are such a lovely person! During your 5 nights stay in Kanazawa, we did so many day-trips and one of the highlights was to see Snow Monkeys in Nagano. I am truly glad that your children could see dozens of snow monkeys playing in the mountain and enjoying in Onsen (hot spring) after a long walk of the trail. We had an experience of having a traditional Japanese cuisine in Kanazawa and a BBQ in Takayama and taking lots of pictures at every attractions. Those will be my precious memories. I hope you can come back to Japan to see more beautiful places. Yoshie
