“ Excellent tour ”

Yuki provided us with a wonderful 4 hour tour. We started with a bird's eye view of Tokyo from the world trade center building, then headed to nearby shrine. Afterwards, we toured the Meiji Jingo shrine. Yuki taught us about Shoguns, Emperor rule, Buddhism and Shinto. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We would tour with Yuki again, without question.

“ Day trip to Kamakura from Tokyo ”

Four of us had a fantastic day touring the sights of Kamakura. Yuki met us at our hotel and that helped streamline our day so we didn’t have to figure out navigating through the train stations. Yuki was very informative in regards to the history at the sights we visited. I would highly recommend Yuki as a tour guide as our day was fun and full of Japanese history. Excellent day tour with Yuki from Tokyo to Kamakura.

Very Good
