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.

Hi Vanessa, Thank you so much for choosing me as a guide in Nagano. It was great to see you and your family! I also enjoyed the day a lot. I really appreciated you and your family's friendly, generous, and warm-hearted personalities. And it was great to talk to and play with your niece :) They are so cute and snowball fight was fun :) I wish you and your family are enjoying the rest of your trip in Japan. I hope to see you soon either in Malaysia or in Japan. Thank you!!
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!
Thank you for the feedback! I'm glad that you like the tour in Nagano :) I also had a great time with you! Thank you so much!
