What to Expect

The Kawazu area is in the Izu Peninsula. Kawazu is famous for its early-blooming “sakura” (cherry blossoms) in early spring (early February to early March). The "Cherry Blossom Festival" held during the sakura season is very popular.
Odawara is a castle town developed around the Odawara castle which was originally built at the end of the 15th century. Odawara prospered as one of the biggest post towns of Tokaido in the Edo era. We can visit Hotoku Ninomiya Shrine and look around the traditional shops in the town as well as the castle. It takes about 40 minutes to Odawara from Tokyo by the Shinkansen (bullet train), and it is suitable as a one-day trip from Tokyo.

“ An excellent guide ”

Takeshi helped us to enjoy a fabulous day in Nagano with a very special visit to the Snow Monkeys. He was incredibly helpful in adapting to our needs and paced the day perfectly, always checking if we were ok with any small changes or recommendations. As well as the snow Monkey trip, we also visited the Zenkoji Temple which was stunning. Hint.... be there on the hour to hear the Monk ringing the shrine Bell that was also used in the Nagano winter Olympic opening ceremony. Takeshi has very good English skills, and we had no problem chatting with him at length about many topics. We had a truly memorable day and would highly recommend him to any prospective clients

Takeshi:

Thank you for your review. I am glad you liked the tour. It was interesting to see mother monkeys with newborn babies. Hope to see you again.

“ Tokyo Highlights with Takeshi ”

Takeshi is great guide! He gave us very good observation of the major highlights of Tokyo, it’s history and the culture. Takeshi is also a great person - From the time of making our reservation, until the very end, he was very accommodating, flexible, and attending our (unexpected) needs. We highly recommend Takeshi!

Takeshi:

I am glad you enjoyed the tour. I hope you continue to have a wonderful time in Japan.

“ One day tour of Tokyo ”

Had a wonderful time with Takeshi. We didn't have much time to spare in Tokyo so we had to be as effecient as possible - Takeshi was happy to craft and alter an itenriary on the day to take to us to as many places as we can see / let us have the rest we need across when needed. Especially appreciated the little things Takeshi assisted with, such as booking lunch / buying Skytree tickets early

Takeshi:

Thank you for writing the review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the day. Especially, I was happy I could show you cherry blossoms at the imperial Palace. Hope to see you again.

“ Just amazing! ”

My clients, Mohan Ramachandran and his family, had a wonderful tour of Nagano and Ueda with Takeshi-San. They were stunned by Zenkoji Temple, saw so many sakura groves, and had a delicious Indian lunch at a local restaurant. They really enjoyed and learned so much from Takeshi. Thank you!

Takeshi:

Ashish-san, thank you for your review. I am glad they could enjoy the day in Nagano. The cherry blossoms just started to bloom in Ueda castle ruin park, but it was pretty.
