We had a great time with Yukari! She planned a wonderful day tour of Kanazawa and taught us so much about the city. We would highly recommend her.

Yukari:

Also your review touched my heart. I appriciate your kind words. It's my pleasure if I would be able to welcome you here in Kanazawa again in the future! Warmest regards to you and your family, Yukari

“ Very well planned trip that covered a lot in just 3 hours ”

We had a very short visit to Kanazawa as a family and Yukari helped us make the most of that. She was very well organised and punctual and had designed a great itinerary for us. Her English is good and she was very helpful and friendly in answering all our questions and making sure all our needs were met. In only 3 hours we got an overview of the key sights of Kanazawa.

Yukari:

Hi Aileen, Thank you very much for writing the review! We could go along all the way as I planed was possible by all of your family's cooperation. I truely appriciate that. If you have a chance,please come visit Kanazawa again! Yukari

“ Patient and knowledgeable ”

Yukari accommodated our request for a timing change due to the typhoon. We ended up with a perfect sunny afternoon! She took us efficiently through the gardens, castles, and dwellings in Kanazawa. Open and kind, we enjoyed sharing with her!

Yukari:

Thank you very much for the review! It was a lucky of us to be able to enjoy the city with a perfect sunny. Hope you enjoy fully in Kanazawa and the rest of your stay in Japan!
