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.

“ Fantastic trip ”

Mr Murayama was an excellent guide. Soon after I booked the tour he contacted me to provide a spreadsheet with the estimated costs of the trip and was in frequent contact to arrange the meetup at my hotel etc. He was very well organised, friendly and knowledgable about Nikko and its points of interest and even gave me a few sightseeing tips for my few remaining days in Tokyo. It was a great day out, I wholeheartedly recommend him as a guide.

Hideaki:

Matthew, 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. I think you have already gone back to UK. Hoping everything is fine with you. Thank you again. Hideaki Murayama

Hideaki:

“ Fantastic guide ”

Hideaki gave us a great look at parts of Tokyo we would have never found. He will individually plan the day for you, and will instruct you on how to navigate the subway. We found him knowledgeable, considerate and responsive to our needs. He even helped us plan and book our Shinkansen tickets for the following day.

Hideaki:

Thank you very much for your review, David. I also had a very good time walking and chatting with you. I hope you enjoy skiing now. Hideaki Murayama.

“ Taking on Narita Airport and Tokyo on the first trip to Jspan ”

Mura-san is very knowledgeable and efficient. He made contacts with the Muslim community in the area we are staying to make us feel welcome in Japan. We visited a small prayer place there too. He insisted to come all the way to Narita to ensure that we are well taken care off the moment we land. He helped find the Klook booth to exchange our vouchers, get bus tickets and even accompanied us to find our apartment. He gave good advice on how to get around Tokyo using public transportation. He even recce the way to Disneyland land with us. Mura-san gave a very warm and personalised service to us. First trip to such a huge metropolitan like Tokyo can be very daunting and confusing but thanks to Mura-san we have been making trips around Tokyo on our own taking the subway, trains and public... read more

Hideaki:

Thank you very much for your review, Anita-san. I’m very glad to know that you became confident about going around Tokyo. Yes, the public transportation system in Tokyo is very confusing not only for visitors, but for local people as well. Please enjoy your stay in Japan. Hideaki Murayama

“ Beyond our expectations ”

We new we had a short day and wanted to experience Tokyo from a cultural viewpoint. He was able to accomplish that by using the subway to get to all corners of Tokyo . We visited 5 or 6 sites, walked a lot and got the feeling of Tokyo that we wanted. His recommendation for a "Tokyo" lunch fit right in. Highly recommend him to others

Hideaki:

Dick-san. Thank you very much for your review. We walked nearly 20,000 steps in one day with only lunch break! How energetic you and your wife are! I’m glad that you like Okonomiyaki. It’s my favorite food, too. I also shared a pleasant time with you and your wife. Hideaki Murayama
