“ Perfect Custom Tour ”

Our extended family spent four days with Mori-san in Kanagawa. He put together an excellent itinerary combing tourist destinations in Hakone, Kamakura, Yokohama and Odawara with experiences of traditional Japanese life. Our group included ages 17-84 and had varied interests so this was no simple task. Once he got to know us better he adjusted our plans accordingly. Mori-san speaks excellent English and is very organized while still remaining flexible and easy going. He has also travelled extensively and has many interests which allows him to be an ideal host and guide. We very much enjoyed getting to know him and learning more about Japan. Arigato gozaimas Mori-San!

“ Excellent guide, high english proficiency. ”

Hideki is a friendly guide who showed us (a group of 2) around Tokyo. He guided us around to very specific places we wanted to go, and familiarized us with the subway system. He's friendly, proficient in English, and I can't recommend him enough.

“ The Tsukiji Outer Market was a rush! ”

My day was one of contrasts. I love to visit local food markets when I travel. Hideki deftly navigated me through the bustling and colorful Tsukiji Market. Compare that to the calm and serenity found in the Hama-rikyu Gardens and the Meiji-jingu Shinto Shrine. Combined, they made for a wonderful introduction to Tokyo, all thanks to Hideki.

“ Very friendly guide ”

Hideki was a very friendly guide who gave us good insight into a couple parts of Tokyo and how to get around. Communication was easy, and we found each other on the first day no problem.
