“ 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!!


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 .


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

“ Highlight Tour of Kobe ”

Wow! Chuji was fantastic. We requested a very busy tour itinerary (with only 8hrs to tour) crossing all over Kobe. Chuji delivered a great tour for my family. From the initial planning stages Chuji was prompt returning mesages and offered great insight to help plan our tour. Upon our tour, Chuji was flexible but also kept us on task so we could complete our itinerary as planned. His knowledge of the local sites, tour routes and use of public transportation is unmatched. We enjoyed our time with Chuji very much! Anyone considering a tour of Kobe MUST book with Chuji!!


Dear Aaron, Thank you very much for giving me a review. I am very happy I could spend great time with you and your family yesterday. I wish you have a good trip and come back to your home in safe. Best regards Chuji
