“ I did the hakone, kamakura, and Tokyo tours ”

He allowed me to travel at my leisure while he navigated me through the public transportation. I saw more than what I anticipated and have many new memories. The knowledge he shared with me allowed me to navigate through the metro line, instead of using taxis, on my last day in japan by myself, which saved me money. Nothing but positive remarks.

“ Best Memories of Hakone tour ”

Yuki took us from Tokyo to Hakone to see Mt. Fuji. We had a wonderful day with him as our guide to Hakone. He adjusted our schedule since it was busy Golden Week but made sure that we got to ride the bullet train Thank you for your patience and all the information you provided about Japan and Mt Fuji. You were a great guide for our group.
