After 15 minutes ocean cruise watching Islands in ria-type coastline, you will be filled with only calm and quiet. The sounds you can hear in the island will be just coming from waves and birds. Yet, it is the island inhabited. While Cycling on the road, breeze from the ocean and beautiful scenery will heel and refresh you. Only 15 minutes cruise will bring you different world.

“ Amazing service ...highly recommended!!! ”

We booked Tetsuya for a full day trip around Ise and Toba .He recommended cheap 4 day train/bus/attractions pass and purchased them on our behalf and then got train tickets and reserved seats for us as it was not available on internet from Australia. His English is very good and his written communications are excellent. He was always happy to answer any questions and offered itinerary suggestions and a timetable for the day. We were amazed at the time & effort Tetsuya put in to providing us with a memorable day. He is very knowledgeable on all sites we visited and looks much younger than his profile photo suggests.😊 We recommend him unreservedly for any guide services you may be considering.


Dear Andrew-san and Judy-san, Thank you very much for your comments. I am quite delighted to have had the opportunity to meet and show the both of you around Ise and Toba. As you suggested, I am hoping that I can travel to Australia someday. For now, I am preparing to make new tour. That will include the words " samurai", "tea ceremony" and "Japanese garden". If you have chance to come to Japan in the next big holidays, please try to experience it. Thank you again for selecting my tour, and I hope that you will enjoy rest of your trip. Bon voyage !
