“ Journey of a lifetime ”

My son could not have had a better guide or person take him to the top of Mt. Fuji! He watched over his safety and made the entire experience one he will never forget! He stayed in contact with us from the time he was booked and kept us informed on conditions and everything that was needed! We will recommend him to anyone coming to Japan!

Yuji:

Dear DeAnna Thank you for your quick review. I have had so many concerns in light of weather and the forecast turned true. Unfortunate about the weather and views but I have understood John would appreciate just reaching to the top. Good job for John as we were even able to make a round at the top. He stood at the highest point of Japan. It was a memorable experience for me, too. We also had good conversations even when we were out of breath. Thank you. Yuji

“ Perfect English speaking guide! ”

We were looking for a guide who spoke excellent English and could lead us on both a day hike on Mt. Fuji as well as tour other sights. He was willing and able to do either or both and customize it to be exactly what we wanted. He did a wonderful job at telling us in depth about the sights as well as giving us a better understanding of the culture and location. We had just arrived in Japan and he was an excellent introduction to the country. He was also very helpful with helping us figure out how to book a ticket we needed for the next day. He is a very nice, kind, interesting and knowledgeable man who we would highly recommend as a guide.

Yuji:

Dear Laura, Thank you for taking time to review the tour. And thank you for the nice review. It was a rainy day and unfortunate but we had some lucks, too, by having been able to see the face of Mt. Fuji. As you just arrived, I could have given more introductions but too much is sometimes not good. I just hope you will spend good days in Japan to enjoy to your hearts' content. Please enjoy whatever you feel you would like to enjoy. I made it to the top of Mt. Fuji regardless of the rain. Thank you again. Yuji

“ Excellent guide ”

Yuji was very meticulous and helpful. He gave us a lot of sound advice during the trip. We enjoyed his tour very much. Would definitely look for him again if we need a guide next time.

Yuji:

Dear Yen, Thank you again for having booked with me. I have revised some itinerary as I thought you could enjoy some well-known sightseeing spots. There are more to see but you can save them for your next visits in the future. If the weather is fine, Mt. Fuji area offers variety of Mt Fuji faces from different angles and Mt. Fuji shows different faces season by season. You may try Yoshida trail next time for your Mt. Fuji climbing. Please enjoy further for the rest of days in Japan. Take care. Yuji

“ Very caring aervic ”

Yuji helped me customize my itinerary. He was on time and provIded good information along the way. He was informative, caring and respected my requests. We went to a great place for lunch and then at the end of the day as arranged, he dropped me off at the Mishima train station. Like a caring family member, he came inside the train station to make sure I was all setup for my train departure. Highly reliable and recommended.

Yuji:

Dear Nalneesh Thank you for your taking time to write a review. I am more than happy to have received a good review. We were so blessed with a good weather and that was really great. We also had good insightful conversations. I know you are busy but I will be more than glad if I can be with you again in the near future. Yuji

“ Hakone day trip ”

We had 1 full day in Hakone and Yuji planned a great day trip. He shared lot of historical information which made the places more interesting. He is a great guy to have conversation on different topics. When he found out we had more time than originally planned, he was flexible and took us to few more places.

Yuji:

Dear Suresh, Thank you for your taking time to review the tour. Two weeks passed but I remember all scenes with your family just like yesterday. I enjoyed the tour with your family as well. I believe you had good memories in other parts of Japan and in Indonesia. One thing I still think about is that I did not have much time at the ending of the tour at the station. Thank you again for booking with me and hope to see your family some other time. Yuji
