“ Vails in Hakone ”

Yuji was very easy to get along with. He was very knowledgeable about the area. My daughter was not feeling well and Yuji slowed the tour down kept us in the shade and got us to a restaurant that had food she would like!! We also wanted to see the open air museum and Yuji made time for it. We were leaving that day and Yuji made sure we got to the train and knew where we were going from there. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to tour this are of Japan!!

“ Amazing Mt. Fuji and Hakone trip with Yuji ”

From my initial inquiry, I knew that working with Yuji would be a great experience. He was quick and thoughtful in his responses and helped me consider and decide upon a 2 day visit to the Lake Kawaguchiko and Hakone areas. Upon meeting at our hotel, Yuji jumped right in and helped me find my laptop left on a bus and had it sent to my next stop. Whew ! Our itinerary was well thought out and Yuji provided historical and background information about our sites. He is also a licensed Mt. Fuji guide so he was able to give us tidbits about Mt. Fuji that were very interesting. He took us to a local Houtou noodle restaurant on our first day which was really enjoyable. His english is great and he knows alot of American slang as well is very knowledgeable about just about everything which allowed us to have great conversations. My teenage sons also thought Yuji was witty. Yuji took good care of us and made sure that when we parted at Odawara station that we were comfortable with taking the Shinkansen and even offered to buy a ticket and go to the train platform with us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Yuji and would highly recommend him

“ Excellent tour of Mt Fuji area ”

We booked a two day tour with Yuji of the Mt Fuji area, starting in Kawaguchigo and ending in Hakone to catch the Romance train back to Tokyo. We had asked Yuji to keep the planning fairly flexible as the activities we might want to do (being a photography enthusiast) would vary according to the weather, whether Mt Fuji was visible, the forecast for the next day adn whether the cherry blossoms were early or late. As it turned out the weather was fantastic for our visit and so we spent much of the time finding viewpoints of Mt fuji along the lakes, especially where there were later flowering cherry varieties (since the main flowering was unfortunately very early this year and basically finished for our arrival). But Yuji still included all the standard things like temples, Fifth Station, ropeway, caves and museums. Would definately book Yuji again if we are back at Mt Fuji.

“ Great visit with Yuji ”

With less than 24 hours notice, Yuji was able to put together a great Tokyo city tour that hit the highlights we wanted to see plus some other things we would not have thought of. Recommended!
