Important

For Nikko tour, I would like to meet up in tokyo or chiba area. If you want to meet up in Nikko, you need to pay for my transportation fee to Nikko.

- According to the weather records of Fuji city, the possibility of viewing Mt Fuji depends on the season, about 80% in winter while less than 30% in summer.
- The ropeway and cruising at Lake Ashi will either be suspended or unable to operate as scheduled because natural hazards such as snow or strong winds are forecast.

“ Mount Fuji, Hakone Open Air Museum ”

Very organised, punctual. Everything was extremely well planned. We have been extremely happy to have Mr Hideaki as our guide.

Hideaki:

Paola-san. Thank you very much for your review. As your family is so nice, I also shared a pleasant time. We enjoyed a peaceful time at the Open Air Museum. Especially, at the foot bath. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ Great trip to Nikko and excellent guide ”

Hideaki was an excellent guide with a very good english and he have a good knowledge of Nikko. He also answered to my questions about the japanese culture and religion. Also a good advice for a restaurant whith excellent sushi and sashimi. So I recomment Hideaki. When i booked my trip to Japan, i ignored the 1st week of may is known as the Golden Week where administrations are closed and where most japanese are on vacations so it means this week, all tourist attractions are crowded and next time i will avoid that specific week

Hideaki:

Christine-san. Thank you very much for your review. I hope you enjoyed the Nikko tour. I also had a good time chatting with you. Normally in Japan, we have one-week holiday three times a year. From the end of April to the beginning of May. Mid of August. From the end of December to the beginning of January. Almost all sightseeing spots are super crowded. Honestly speaking, I recommend you to avoid a tip in Japan during these days. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ Fabulous Day ”

I would highly recommend Mr. Hideaki was very accommodating in going to were I was wanting to see. He responded very promptly before we booked and also after booking. Very organized and planned out our day and went over it with me ahead of time, no surprises. The tea testing was great and very informative. I highly recommend it. We like to eat at local places and the lunch was really good. If you want flavored kitkats be sure and have him take you to Don Quijote oh so many flavors. Thank you for a great day!!

Hideaki:

Barbara-san. Thank you very much for your review. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour. I also had a good time talking with you and you husband. Yes. The tea tasting workshop was great, and I learned a lot about Japanese tea. Please enjoy KitKat party when you go back to your country. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ One day at Nikko ”

It was good trip overall. Hideaki was very helpful and kind. Thanks for buying the train tickets early. And the best thing is we get to see a bit of snow here and there.

Hideaki:

Mohana-san, Thank you very much for your review. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed the Nikko tour. I also had a good time talking with you and your family. Yes. It was lucky that you were able to touch snow there. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

“ A day in Tokyo ”

We booked a tour with Hideaki during our first day in Tokyo to get oriented and see a number of sites that were located in different parts of the city. That proved to be a very good decision. Hideaki put together an itinerary based on our interests and helped us feel very comfortable even on our first full day in a huge new city. We covered a lot in eight hours and did not feel rushed at all. The restaurant choice for lunch was also great - excellent quality and value. I strongly recommend Hideaki as a guide to anyone who is new to Tokyo and needs a little help navigating the city.

Hideaki:

Anna-san. Thank you very much for your review. I hope you enjoyed the Tokyo tour. I also had a good time chatting with you and your husband. We were very lucky to be able to see full-bloom cherry blossoms in Ueno Park. They were amazing and awesome!! Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama
