“ Lots of Cheeky Laughters ”

My family and myself had an amazing tour to tokagushi shrine and monkey forest guided by Kouhei. We had a child and a 6 years old. Kouhei is naturally hands on with kids. Genuinely patient, constantly caring, followed through our breaks, slow walks, made handful conversations with everyone of us and of course. snowball fights. Kouhei is well versed in English and he explained thoroughly well on all the places we visited. Recommended us an amazing soba restaurant for lunch (He also did an extra mile by booking us a dinner place) Shared us a lot of his experiences. In definite, we’ll be back for more extreme sports. Thank you kouhei for sharing us, your great personality and presence. We must say, you’re a natural and we’ll love to host you in Malaysia. See you soon for another gre... read more

“ Great fun with family ”

We had a great day out in the snow with sightseeing and snowshoeing. Good fun that needs a lot of energy. We would like to rate Kouhei a 6-star out of 5 review as he did an outstanding job for organising our group of 7 with a joyful and good pace tour. Excellent English and easy communications. Highly recommended.


Thank you so much for joining the tour today and a sweet review :) I also enjoyed a lot with you today! I'm so happy to be able to spend the day with two lovely families! Arigatou Gozaimashita :)

We had a great time with Kouhei as our guide. Our family visited the snow monkey park, Togakushi Jinja, Zenkoji, Obuse Town and Hokusai museum. Kouhei was enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable and made it a a day to remember. One of the highlights of our trip!
