“ Great person and an amazing guide. ”

Yoshito is a great person and an amazing guide. Pre-event communication was clear and Yoshito was very accommodating. During the event, it felt like Yoshito was part of the team and all of our guests valued his support. Should we return to Japan and need a guide, we'll definitely book with Triplelights and Yoshito. Thanks for all of your help Yoshito, the event would not have been a success without it.

Yoshito:

Dear Laurence and Daniel, Thank you very much for the most superb review. I’m very very happy to hear your message. I’m also willingly to help you all if you would come to Japan again. Sincerely yours
