“ Hideaki is an excellent guide for your trip in Tokyo ”

Hideaki or we always call him as "Mura san". He is very nice person, he is very detailed and considerate. He responded to my email quickly, making offer of travel proposal with detail. He was also very helpful to us as my wife missed her wallet at the mall. We greatly enjoyed the 1 day excursion tour enjoy the beauty of fuji mountain from hakone, and lake ashi with Mura san. He also gave us basic information how to get to osakadan and interesting locations that we can visit in osaka and kyoto. He is an interesting guys and with lots of travel experience understands travellers needa. We highly recommend Mura san as your tour guide in Tokyo !!.

“ Good and Well informed ”

It was a pleasure to be guided by Mura San for 2 days on our trip to Tokyo. He tried to get information on all that we happened to mention. He was not hurried and was good for our family of 5 , from 10yrs to 74yrs. He gave us a good brief before reaching our destination so we had a basic idea even before arriving. He was a very accommodating and helpful guide. We returned today from Japan . It was a pleasure to be guided by him.Thanks to him for making us understand Tokyo better . All my family members have the same feedback for him.

“ Visit to Mt. Fuji ”

Thank you Mr. Hideaki! The best and caring guide especially I have 2 elders that just cant cope walking so long and Mr. Hideaki is a patient guide who kept looking and concern for their needs. We love the birthday candles that you have brought for my dad's birthday and bringing us to the halal restaurant in Ginza. Overall you are the best and will recommend our friends to use you when going to Japan. So many beautiful places that you have brought to us and we should book you more days in future. Love from Siti and the rest of the family!
