“ Best of Kamakura ”

My colleagues and I, all Kumon instructors had a wonderful day in Kamakura with Yuki. Yuki is warm, intelligent and knowledgeable guide also very flexible and accommodating. He kindly greeted us at our hotel in Yokohama despite a little snow and used public transport to and in Kamakura to save time. We visited the the great Buddha of Kamakura known for his Handsome Face, Hasedera temple from where you can also have a view over Kamakura city and the ocean, Hokokuji temple with the highlight of enjoying green tea in the peaceful, serene Bamboo forest, Hachimangu shrine where a wedding was taking place looked magical in the snow. He also took us to a local restaurant for a delicious home cooked meal with vegetarian choices and as a surprise took us to try out local sweet desserts. We re... read more


Dear Pushpa, Thank you for writing such a nice and detailed review of my tour. Kamakura is my favorite place to visit as it is not so crowded and easy to go from Tokyo. Please give my best regards to your colleagues, too. Yuki

“ Great tour with Yuki ”

We had a great tour with Yuki. He is knowledgeable and thoughtful in how he conducted the tour. We were traveling with our 8 year old daughter and 10month old son and Yuki was considerate of their needs as well. We felt confident touring Kyoto and Lake Kawaguchi without having to worry about the language barrier and/or navigating the public transport system and could focus on enjoying the sights.


Dear Fran, Thank you for your review of my tours. I was glad to guide your family without any trouble. One day tour to Kyoto is challenging for me too. We saw Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi and it was not so cold. It was more crowded than I expected at this time of the year, but I learned how to manage the tour in that condition. Best regards, Yuki

“ Yuki is Amazing! ”

Hello Everyone! If you are doing a day tour, Yuki is the best and highly recommended! He gives you historical background of every place we went to and took us shopping to the cheapest places! We will get him again when we come back to Japan for a visit! Thanks Yuki!


Dear Robelyn, Thank you for writing a review of my tour of Tokyo. I was very happy when your family listens to my explanation of each site and gave me questions about our country and people. My tour is very flexible to reflect the interests of the guest so I changed my route to take you to my favorite ramen shop and added Ameyoko discount streets where you bought so many Japanese sweets. I hope your family has enjoyed traveling Japan. Best regards, Yuki

“ Wonderful Day in Kyoto ”

My 11 year old son and I began our trip in Tokyo with Yuki-san. We started the day taking the shinkansen out of Shinagawa Station and taking the local train once in Kyoto to the Fushimi Shrine. We did the Miyabi Tour. We followed the course and had lunch at a delicious tonkatsu restaurant that Yuki-san found for us because of my picky 11 year old eater. The most memorable site for us was the Kinkaku Temple late afternoon. The sunset hit the temple just right and it shone in its beautiful gold color. We were back in Tokyo by 8 p.m. Originally, I thought the 12 hour trip would be too much for my son. Not at all. Time flew by and we were not tired, one bit. My son said, "I want to take another tour with Yuki-san when we come back to Japan". I agree, I highly recommend h... read more


Dear Miho, Thank you very much for writing such a specific review of my tour. It was my pleasure to guide you and your son to Kyoto when it is not so crowded. The day was very fine and mild in the last week of December but it snowed on the next day. Sorry for the walk to find the Tonkatsu restaurant, its entrance was very different from what I expected. I will look for your visit of Japan again. Yuki
