“ Sake Breweries and Sorakuen Japanese Garden ”

Chuji was a wonderful guide. He had lots of information to share with us. His English is excellent. We enjoyed all of the sites that he took us to. The itinerary was well planned and flawlessly executed. Thank you, Chuji for a great day!

CHUJI:

Dear Pauline, Thank you very much for your review on our tour. I appreciate you that you accepted my proposal of visiting the Japanese garden to see beautiful flowers. I guess it was good for you and myself to enjoy wonderful time. Best regards Chuji

“ Fantastic local guide in Kobe ”

We were delayed getting off our cruise in the Port of Kobe and Chuji was patiently waiting for us. He was very knowledgeable of the area and sights that we saw. We covered a lot of ground and moved quickly because of the delay in getting off the ship. He was also willing to adapt our pre arranged schedule to help us find a shop that sold good quality knives at reasonable prices. We enjoyed our time with him and would highly recommend him to anyone. For reference our party consisted of 4 adults and one teenager. Thank you Triplelights for connecting us to a fantastic guide. Thank you Chuji

CHUJI:

Dear Suzanne, Thank you for writing review on our nice tour included seeing sunset view from observatory. I am very happy to spend a special time with you. Please enjoy your staying in Japan! Chuji

“ A great day with Chuji ”

We had less than a day in Kobe and we wanted to be guided to the highlights and Chuji did just that. He was well prepared and very informative and gave us a full day visiting the Maiko Bridge, Kobe Port, Motomachi, sake brewery and even time for a Kobe beef lunch amongst other things, like the bakery. What topped it off is he graciously guided us from our end point of the tour, our hotel, to the bus terminal that we needed to leave from with all our luggage. Such service!!

CHUJI:

Dear Claire, Thank you so much for writing review for me, and for your cooperation on that day! I also enjoyed visiting places with you and your friends. I wish I can see you again some day. Best regards Chuji

“ Great tour of Ossaka with Chuji ”

We so enjoyed our day with Chuji. We visited the Umeda Sky building observatory for an incredible view of the city. The building has amazing architecture. We were so fortunate to visit the Japanese Mint and see the wonderful garden of cherry blossom trees. that were absolutely stunning. We had some Japanese street food with Chuji's guidance. Chuji was very knowable on negotiating all the metros and trains. We also visited Osaka castle grounds .

CHUJI:

Dear Lynne, Thank you for your review on our tour. I also enjoyed great view from the Umeda Sky building and beautiful cherry blosso trees in Japan Mint Osaka with you. Now I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the day with me! Best regards Chuji
