“ Magnificent ”

Incredible Takashi. Our day trip to snow corridor with him was just satisfying, though it was hectic he made our tour well fit in time. Could not think of anyone better doing this trip as Takashi. Would suggest him 100 percent to guide him to snow corridor without a doubt.

“ School Group Kanazawa Tour ”

Takashi san did a wonderful job showing an elementary school group from Australia around Kanazawa for the day. This was a group of 33 people using public transport and he was very calm and informative catering the tour to the age of the children. We would definitely recommend Takashi san for future tours.

“ I couldn't have asked for a better guide in Kanazawa. ”

Takeshi San was our tour guide last 2 days in Kanazawa. We hit most of the sights in Kanazawa and half day tour of Shirakawa-Ko. He communicated with me very well through email to set up the tour, and he was very punctual, and managed our time very well at all the sights in Kanazawa. His knowledge of history was impeccable. We couldn't have asked for a better guide, and we loved Kanazawa!
