“ Amazing trip to the Tokyo G-cans! ”

I contacted seven different tour guides, both the top rated guides on this site and on two other sites to take us on a Tokyo G-cans tour. None of the guides I contacted would take us, as the tour was slightly out of the ordinary for them...Thankfully this site put me in touch with the guide Nobu-san and he happily organised the whole tour for us. Nobu planned it perfectly, despite never having been there before. He was on-time to meet us, quietly spoken, very friendly and did well to translate for us while on the tour. We had a great time. I would strongly suggest Nobu, particularly if you want to do something slightly different to all the other tourists in Japan. Thanks again Nobu!

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Kirk. It was an exciting tour for me, too. It is my pleasure to guide guests to different places from standard Tourist courses because I can learn a lot from such tours. Thank you again for giving me a chance to visit G-cans, Kirk. Nobu

“ Wonderful day visiting Mount Fuji ”

As I wanted to visit Mount Fuji and didn't research on how to get there, I skimmed through available travel guides on TripleLights to take me there and Nobu san was recommended to me through another travel guide. Nobu san was a great and knowledgeable guide - he provided good information of the mountain and its surroundings. He timed our visit well which included visits to the panoramic viewing area by cable car, the boat ride at Lake Kawaguchi and a park nearby. The day was complimented by great view of Mount Fuji as the weather was perfect that day and I took many picture perfect photos and videos of Mount Fuji. It was a day well spent! Thank you Nobu san and TripleLights.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Lee san! I am glad to know that you enjoyed the tour with me. It was really a good day to see Mt. Fuji and I also enjoyed the beautiful mountain. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Nobu

“ Visit to mount Fujy ”

Good trip however unfortunately the weather was not the best for the day. I found a bit too long the trip by bus, maybe worth to inform that half of the day will be spent on travelling. For the rest it was a good day.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Mara. Unfortunately it was snowing on that day. I regret to say I could not control the weather. I thought you understood how long we had to ride on a bus in Advance by the itinerary. Maybe I should have reminded you more clearly. I appreciate your comment. Best regards, Nobu

Nobu accompanied myself and 4 children from Shin Yokohama to Shibuya for some shopping. He was knowledgeable and friendly and I would recommend him to others requiring assistance getting around and learning about Japan.
