“ Hakone Day Tour ”

What I like most with Junichiro or Kochi: - gives clear directions. My son and friends just met him in Mishima Station and we were based 2 trains away, a local and a bullet train. His clear instructions made it easy for us in navigating our way through the train stations. - replies immediately in my emails and messages - went extra mile in his service. My husband and I weren’t able to join the trip that day due to health condition. Kochi is kind and considerate enough to send me photos of their outing. - He even sent me sweet delicacies at the end of their trip. It was just so unfortunate that we didn’t meet personally that day. But I am sure that we will have other tours in Japan and we already have our best guide. Mary Ann Garcia

Junichiro:

Mary san. Thanks for your evaluation and kind message. I hope to meet together some day in the future.

“ Guided Pefection ”

Junichiro is such an amazing guide. He was punctual and well versed in the Japanese culture. He asked us what we like to do and then he planned a great day around that. He kept us on time so that we could accomplish all the things we had planned. The wood working guy was awesome!! The 300 year old tree house and outside sculpture garden was amazing. We had a great lunch in the down town area. We felt we had really expirenced Hakone. So thankful for Junichiro’s recommendations, guidance and knowledge. He spoke great English as well which was very helpful. Thank you so much for a great fun filled day!!

“ Multipoint tour of Hokane ”

Junichiro-san was very responsive to our needs. We saw the historical old Tokaido road and checkpoint. We talked to the artisan who showed us some very interesting and unique puzzle boxes. Breathtaking views from various points in Hokane. Junichiro-san speaks very good English and is a knowledgeable guide. Also very accommodating and helped us with booking a private room at the onsen if you prefer to not using the public baths.

Junichiro:

Sheryl san. Thank you for your feedback. Please enjoy and be relax during the rest of Tokyo stay.
