“ Great tour of Nagasaki ”

Yukon was excellent. She had an excellent command of the English language and was very knowledgeable. She really brought to life the events surrounding the horrible attack on the people of Nagasaki. I would highly recommend her.

Yuko:

Dear Cheryle Thank you for nice words. I am so happy that you chose me as your guide because I too had great time with you. I hope you will enjoy cherry blossoms in Aomori and see different aspects of Japan there. Best regards, Yuko

“ Kumamoto City tour ”

We had a great time exploring Kumamoto with Yuko. She was very informative and helpful. She met us right at the port. We would have never been able to see everything without her there.

Yuko:

Dear Chelsea san Thank you for 5 stars. I had very good time with you and your mother. I am sorry that it was rainy . It has been rainy since then here in Japan. I hope it will be fine when you visit next time! Best regards, Yuko

“ Wonderful Visit to the Miyazaki Area ”

Although TripleLights did not have any guides in the area that we were traveling, Yuko made a long journey to meet us at our cruise ship and show us the Miyazaki area. Even though it was not her "home base" she obviously did a lot of research to find the best itinerary and provide extensive background on what we saw. She also arranged an excellent driver to get us where we needed to be in comfort. We had a fun trip with good variety - one of the best stops on our cruise around Japan.

Yuko:

Dear Susan Thank you so much for your message and 5 stars! The view from Udo Shrine is one of the most majestic one in Japan, so I really wanted to show you. During the tour I was very happy to see you taking a lot of pictures with smile. I will tell that samurai driver your comment. Thank you again. Yuko

“ Amazing Tour! ”

My husband and I were visiting Japan for the first time and decided to take a tour of Nagasaki. We were overwhelmed trying to figure out where to go, what to do, and how to get there. We booked a tour with Yuko, and it was such a great decision, she is simply fantastic! She met us at our hotel, and helped us get a day tram pass and showed us how to use the tram. We visited the A-Bomb Museum, The Nagasaki Peace Park, Deijima, and Glover Garden. She is so sweet, helpful, and informative. We never would have been able to see all of these great sites so easily without her! She even took the time to take us to Nagasaki Station to show us how to use our JR Pass and which train to get on to get to Sasebo (we were visiting friends there the next day). Thank you so much Yuko!

Yuko:

Dear Christina Thank you for your kind words ! I really had a great time with you because you are so beautiful and graceful couple. I hope you will enjoy your stay in Japan. Thank you.
