“ A great guide to visit Hakone! ”

Our experience with Yuki was amazing: he knows perfectly the area and how to move fast there to visit everything in a day without missing any great spot. He proposed us a great tour and we asked him to include a particular Onsen we’d love to see: he included it and was a fantastic experience, having a Hot spring water bath looking to Mount Fuji; it was a memorable day that couldn’t be possible without his knowledge and experience. He even accompanied us to the entry of Chinatown for having dinner after the tour! Yuki is a great professional and a great person too. We’ll always remember this day in Hakone, thanks for everything, Yuki!!!!

Yuki:

Dear Antonio, Thank you for your review of my tour so soon. It was a good experience to have the outdoor bath with you. I will include the bath into my tour. Please give my best regard to your family, too. Yuki

“ Introduction to Tokyo ”

My wife and I had a great two days with Yuki. We we were in Tokyo prior to a cruise and group tour. Since it was our first time in Japan Yuki showed us how to use the subways, took us around to many places we would not see on our group tour and took us to some very good restaurants. He adapted the itinerary to what we wanted to do. He picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off there each day. We would highly recommend using his services.

Yuki:

Dear Chris, Thank you for your nice review oft tour. Since you booked two days, I arranged our tour according to the weather and your interests. Please give my best regards to your wife Hellen, too. Yuki

“ What a fun trip! ”

My family of 4 had a great time in Japan. Thanks to Yuki! He planned the days out very well. We were so lucky getting to see beautiful cherry blossom. My kids love him! I love Yuki’s presentation he created on iPad with pictures so my kids can relate the stories to.
