“ Excellent! Especially with kids! ”

From the first time I contacted Yukari san, she was very professional and excellent at customizing our family trip. I mentioned my 5 year old son and she was quick to recommend a couple kid friendly destinations and tour routes. Also we found out that the summer in Kanazawa can get REALLY HOT. Yukari san was quick to make resting stop recommendations along the way when we were getting too tired or our son was being a bit cranky. She was excellent in trying to keep our son interested throughout the tour and even prepared some cute gifts for him as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone.


Thank you very much for the review! I appriciate that you all had been trying to enjoy the tour and being so kind even in that much hot day. I 'm sure that special hot day tour had added some spice to our as a unforgettable memories of Kanazawa!

“ Kanazawa with Family ”

Planning a trip is exhausting. Making sure everyone enjoys the trip, even more exhausting, if not impossible. I was fortunate to connect with Yukari through TripleLights, who gladly relieved me of that burden. We originally planned to visit Hiroshima and when our travel plans changed, I checked with TripleLights and Yukari's name came up, with excellent reviews and was fortunately available on the day that our ship, Diamond Princess, was scheduled for Kanazawa. Yukari was generous with her time and made suggestions that were right on point for a family that stretched, age wise from 18 to 74. Yukari's knowledge of the city and its history made for a wonderful day. She was easy to connect with at the JR Kanazawa station, helped us to navigate public transport, and at the end of the da... read more


Dear Thomas, Thank you very much for your long review! This made me much more motivated. Also I was so happy that you have officialy included me as a member of Roman clan,and your family had enjoyed Kanazawa with me. I'm looking forward to seeing you again! Best wishes to all of your family. Yukari

“ Wonderful day in Kanazawa ”

We had a wondeful day with Yukari-san as she guided us through several interesting and magical places in Kanazawa. She was very thoughful to check on how we were going during the tours and adapting to our interests. We really appreciated her skill and the beautiful area, highly recommended.


Dear Matthew, Thank you so much for the review! I hope you two are having another wonderful day in Nagano today and enjoying the rest of your stay in Japan. Best wishes to you and your wife! Yukari

“ More than I bargained fy ”

Yukari is a fountain of knowledge. I believe that her profile doesn’t do her justice. She managed to show me all the places I wanted to see plus a whole lot more and greatly organised. She should be in strategic planning. Yukari is a lovely lady and knows the details of everything you are seeing. And her little back street restaurant was genuinely Japanese and delicious. I wish her a fantastic career in tourism.


Thank you so much for your comments,Lucero. I'm happy that you had enjoyed the tour with me. I will keep on enjoying the tour! Yukari
