“ Great first day in Japan ”

Yuki's tour was a perfect way to start off my first trip to Japan. Becoming familiar with the train system with Yuki saved a ton of time and made the rest of my travels easier. We saw some great sights in Tokyo and had the best sashimi I've tried at Tsukiji market. Yuki's english is excellent and he was very flexible+helpful with deciding on destinations.

Yuki:

“ Excellent Guide - Highly Recommended ”

My family hired Yuki for 3.5 days to see Tokyo and Hakone. We are very sophisticated world travelers and have used many guides over the years. Yuki was perhaps the most warm, flexible, and accomadating guide we have had. He is very knowledgable about Japanese history and the sights. He was superb with my two children, both who became very fond of him. It was a great help having him help us quickly navigate the subways and trains. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Yuki!

Yuki:
Thank you for your great review. I learned a lot from your research on the tour. I will add Pockemon center and Samurai museum to the list of my tour. I will report our experience at Hakone in the blog later.

Yuki was a great tour guide! We are grateful to have him on the day we arrive Tokyo, and it's our first time here. He took us to places where we wanted to see and made extra effort to accommodate our needs. I highly recommend him. Thanks Yuki for making our first trip to Japan a memorable one. I will for sure recommend you to my friends in US who are planning to visit Tokyo! Good luck and more power to you.

Yuki:
Thank you for your evaluation, Mary. You and Allan are such nice persons. I will work harder to improve my tours. I hope you can see Mt. Fuji, today. Best regards, Yuki.
