“ Half day whistle stop tour of tokyo ”

Nobu was a very knowledgeable guide, he drew up the itinerary and we visited a number of sites of historic, cultural interest both by foot ant train. He went at a good pace and always explained the significance of what we were seeing and also put things into todays context. Overall an excellent tour.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Mark. It is my great pleasure to know that you enjoyed the tour. I would also like you to visit countryside for the next chance to come to Japan. You may feel good old days in Japan there. I hope to meet you again in the future. Nobu

“ Chiba Tour ”

The family thanks Nobu for a memorable experience through the Chiba Prefecture. To witness the Prefecture's resiliency after Typhoon Faxai was encouraging. Nobu made adjustments due to some establishments were still closed due to the typhoon, but was able to provide the family with the key points that we had discussed, and verified in advance that those sites were still accessible. He also shared one of his favorite locations. We understand why it can be a favorite get-away. We also wish to acknowledge that he did all of the driving, shared a delicious lunch, and provided us with an awesome sunset with Mt. Fuji.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Daniel! It is my great pleasure if you and your family enjoyed the Chiba Tour. There are many attractive places in Chiba, but not many people know about them. We were also lucky enough to see a magnificent view of the sunset with Mt. Fuji. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Nobu

“ Underground Adventures: Kasukabe/Tokyo Flood Prevention Complex ”

My partner and I spent the morning/early afternoon exploring the Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel, aka Kasukabe Underground Flood Protection Tank, aka G-Cans. As foreign visitors who don't speak Japanese fluently, we needed a Japanese speaking guide who could interpret for us (presumably for safety reasons). We found Nobu via the TripleLights website and he was excellent. Nobu met us promptly at 0900 at our hotel lobby (Hilton Tokyo in Shinjuku). From there, he guided us through the 2 hour journey (2 trains and a bus ride) from Shinjuku to Kasukabe in Saitama prefecture. He was very courteous and knowledgeable and was an excellent translator during the hour long tour of the facility. We could not have asked for a better guide! We will definitely recommend him to... read more

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Jeff. It is my great pleasure if you were satisfied with my guiding and translation. I think this facility would be an interesting place especially for repeated Visitors to Japan who get bored with typical Sightseeing spots. This tour would also be helpful to understand Japan. It is appreciated if you introduce it to your friends who are planning to visit Japan. Best regards, Nobu

“ Tokyo with a pre-schooler in one day! Yes, it is possible, if you have a guide like Nobu! ”

Nobu was really fantastic! I cannot recommend him enough. I was travelling with my 5 yo son and needed an experienced guide who could recommend places to visit and guide us through amazing Tokyo. He was just that and more. Nobu’s English is excellent, he is a very polite, possess wealth of knowledge about Tokyo and culture which he shares with you along the way and he was 100% in tune with what we needed to cover in one day. We visited beautiful Meiji shrine, Shibuya crossing, Shinagawa Aquarium, had amazing fresh sushi meal in a restaurant and saw robot Asimo in the Emerging Science museum. It’s quite a lot in one day even if you travelling without a kid. So yes, we were very chuffed to have such a great guide. Choose him, don’t even doubt.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Sveta! It is my great pleasure if you and your lovely son enjoyed the tour. I introduced only a small part of Tokyo yesterday. There are many other good places to visit for you and your family. I am Looking Forward to taking you to those places for the next time. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Nobu
