He is smart and patient. He was super helpful especially when we needed to retrieve our bags left at the Shinkansen train. He is honest. What should I expect on our trip was been discussed in our emails. Specifically, the value of our Hakone trip with Yuki-san is cheaper than other tourist guide.

“ Half day tour was perfect for my young family. ”

Yuki was very accommodating to the needs of my family, he adjusted our itinerary as we went along. Yuki was also very knowledgeable and his English was very good.

“ Recommendation for Yuki ”

Yuki met us in Tokyo and traveled with us to Hakone. While Sunday is an extremely busy day for Hakone Yuki strategically found a way to avoid standing in lines by timing where we went at optimum times. He was informative answering our questions about Japanese culture and society. We returned rather late in the day and Yuki was extremely generous with his time spending around 10 hours with us. He even offered to take us back to our hotel on the train, although we told him it was not necessary. We highly recommend Yuki as a competent and informative guide.

Dear Ruth, Thank you for writing such a nice review. Your group is a very good guest for me. I enjoyed to answer questions one after another all during the tour. I hope you can see Mt. Fuji on the other day of staying in Japan. Bestvregards, Yuki.

Hakone is very popular for one day trip from Tokyo. There are nice parks and museums with scenic view. We will take a mountain railway, a rope way and cruise Lake Ashi by the Pirate ship. Hakone is famous for hot public baths, you can try one if you want. If you are lucky, you can enjoy the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji.
