“ Customized Mt Fuji tour ”

Had one week to organize a rather last minute customized tour to Mt Fuji area and chanced upon Nobu. Nobu was very responsive and helped to secure the appropriate transport for my party of 6, including children as well as a organize a flexible itinerary to suit what we had wanted to see combined with recommendations from his experience. The tour went well, thanks to Nobu, who not only answered all our questions but managed the schedule well so much so that we did all the key activities (was an ambitious list) we had set out to do so in the 10 hours together. Recommended if you are looking for a fuss free friendly guide around Mt Fuji! Thanks again Nobu.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, David. It is my great pleasure if you and your family enjoyed the tour with me. It was also nice that we could see beautiful Mt. Fuji from various view spots such as the 5th station of Mt. Fuji, Mt. Kachikachiyama, Oishi Park, Oshino Hakkai Springs, etc. Thank you again for being with me! Nobu

“ Nikko & Kamakura ”

We spent 2 days with Nobu as our guide. He was fantastic and we highly recommend him to everyone! We traveled with my mother and father in-law who are both in their 90’s and Nobu was extremely patient and attentive to their pace and challenges. He really made us very comfortable and shared his detailed knowledge of the history of the sites we visited! In addition, he arranged a private van and driver, Kaede, who complimented Nobu perfectly. We would hire both Nobu and Kaede again.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Glen. It is my great pleasure to know that you and your family enjoyed the 2 day tours. Since they are the same generation of my parents who live in my hometown, I felt like I was with my parents when I was with your your mother and father in-low. I hope you fully enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and am looking forward to meeting you again. Nobu

“ Reccomend getting a guide for Japan ”

Nobu did a great job in taking us around Tokyo. We visited Nikko and a suburb of Tokyo. It was a very easy paced tour, but be prepared to walk a lot - very enjoyable though. Nobu had good food recommendations, he is very accommodating and flexible on his schedule. I definitely recommend getting Nobu.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Rajat. It is my great pleasure to know that you enjoyed the tours with me. Looking Forward to meeting you for next time! Nobu

“ Thanks Nobu!!! ”

I spent 3 days with Nobu and he was wonderful. He picked me up outside my Airbnb, had a great itinerary (I had no idea really what I wanted to do in Japan) and I learned some great things from him during our travels through Tokyo, Mt Fuji, and Kamakura. He speaks English well and is very knowledgable! I would recommend him to anyone!! Thanks Nobu! Andrew

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Andrew. I am glad to know that you enjoyed travels in Japan with me. There are many other good places to visit in Japan which I could not introduce you due to lack of time. I am Looking Forward to visiting those places with you in the next opportunity. Nobu
