“ Trip to Takaoka ”

Yuichi was an amazing addition to our trip. Yuichi spent two days with our party of six and helped us navigate our trip to Takaoka which included a funeral service on Saturday. Yuichi was extremely helpful and informative. He readily became a part of our family. Yuichi was very flexible with his time and was so easy to work for several months before the actual trip. I highly recommend Yuichi for any services that you may need in Takaoka or Toyoma. When we return, we will definitely reconnect with Yuichi!

Yuichi:

Hi Lois, so nice to hear from you again! I was absolutely happy to help you to communicate with your precious relatives in Takaoka and bring you to wonderful sight-seeing place such as Amaharashi and Zuiryuji temple. Thank you all for your patronage to our prefecture. If you still miss the taste of Masuzushi, please do not hesitate to visit me in Toyama next time! Finally, Best Wishes for your family members and your precious friend, Valerie.

“ Not informative ”

We very much liked the tutorial on how to behave in a Shinto shrine. But after that visit, there was very little exchange of information about the places we visited. Nothing said about the Higashiyama Higashi Chaya District. Our guide was more there to help us find the places than tell us about them. The choice of restaurant and the location was very poor. The restaurant was not researched and no reservation was made. We were surprised that the guide did not pick Higashiyama Higashi Chaya District for lunch instead of a fast food place downtown. Poor planning of itinerary.

Yuichi:

Dear Dipika, First of all, I would like thank you for joining my tour and for your warm compliment to my tutorial in Shinto shrine. But after that, unfortunately the oden restaurant I scheduled to go with your group was not open though it said it was on the internet. I had to seriously think about your preferences and special requests on meal. So I really apologize for the inconvenience that happend near Nagamachi area and I will make the most of your review into future good services. Thank you again for your indication.

“ Driving Day ”

Yuichi helped us navigate a driving trip through the Gifu Perfecture visiting the historic towns of Nanto, Takayama and Hida. Yuichi our a lot of effort into the day and made it special for us.

Yuichi:

Thank you for joining my tour. Driving all the way from Kanazawa to Hida region must've been a fantastic experience for you. From the World Heritage site of Suganuma (Nanto) village to Hida Furukawa, there are a variety of historical aspects of Japanese village to learn. Hokuriku and Hida region has more for you to explore, so if you have a chance to visit this area again, do not hesitate to contact me again for more nature wonders and adventures!!

“ Our visit to Japan ”

Yuichi was terrific. He knew where to take us and the background for each venue. Pleasure to spend time and do what we wanted as he was very flexible to tailor the trip our needs. Also, he felt he did not spend the hours we booked 1 day, and returned some of his fees. I did not know about it or want any funds returned, however he insisted on refunding the money. Very honest!!!!

Yuichi:

Thank you for joining my tour, ED-san. Our tour was so dynamic experience, moving all the way from Tsumago post town to Takayama and Kanazawa. Each of them has totally different cultural features and backgrounds where we could learn a lot. 8-hour tour in Takayama (Apr.28) must have been too much for us and I think after all we made a good decision for your relaxing time in Wanosato. I was very happy to hear you could enjoy hot spring bathing many times!! If you have a chance, see you in Toyama again for authentic food and onsen springs :)
