Frequently Asked Questions

What if the number of the traveler is over 4?

If the bus is chosen, there is no problem. But when the taxi is chosen, we need a mini van or a mini bus, which will cost more than I suggested. I will look into the cost for them.

“ Great Tour with a Local ”

Arti provided much in depth information for first timers taking the train from Tokyo which made it easy for us to purchase the right tickets and meet him at the meeting point. During the tour, he shared history and was quick to answer any questions we had. Touring with a local was an excellent experience, so different from the standard group tours and Arti brought us to shop from the source rather than souvenir shops. We totally enjoyed the tour with Arti and highly recommend him!
