“ Underground Adventures: Kasukabe/Tokyo Flood Prevention Complex ”

My partner and I spent the morning/early afternoon exploring the Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel, aka Kasukabe Underground Flood Protection Tank, aka G-Cans. As foreign visitors who don't speak Japanese fluently, we needed a Japanese speaking guide who could interpret for us (presumably for safety reasons). We found Nobu via the TripleLights website and he was excellent. Nobu met us promptly at 0900 at our hotel lobby (Hilton Tokyo in Shinjuku). From there, he guided us through the 2 hour journey (2 trains and a bus ride) from Shinjuku to Kasukabe in Saitama prefecture. He was very courteous and knowledgeable and was an excellent translator during the hour long tour of the facility. We could not have asked for a better guide! We will definitely recommend him to... read more

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Jeff. It is my great pleasure if you were satisfied with my guiding and translation. I think this facility would be an interesting place especially for repeated Visitors to Japan who get bored with typical Sightseeing spots. This tour would also be helpful to understand Japan. It is appreciated if you introduce it to your friends who are planning to visit Japan. Best regards, Nobu

“ Tokyo with a pre-schooler in one day! Yes, it is possible, if you have a guide like Nobu! ”

Nobu was really fantastic! I cannot recommend him enough. I was travelling with my 5 yo son and needed an experienced guide who could recommend places to visit and guide us through amazing Tokyo. He was just that and more. Nobu’s English is excellent, he is a very polite, possess wealth of knowledge about Tokyo and culture which he shares with you along the way and he was 100% in tune with what we needed to cover in one day. We visited beautiful Meiji shrine, Shibuya crossing, Shinagawa Aquarium, had amazing fresh sushi meal in a restaurant and saw robot Asimo in the Emerging Science museum. It’s quite a lot in one day even if you travelling without a kid. So yes, we were very chuffed to have such a great guide. Choose him, don’t even doubt.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, Sveta! It is my great pleasure if you and your lovely son enjoyed the tour. I introduced only a small part of Tokyo yesterday. There are many other good places to visit for you and your family. I am Looking Forward to taking you to those places for the next time. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Nobu
