“ Very nice trip to Hakone with Koichiro ”

We had a great day with Koichiro, leaving from our hotel in Tokyo and ending at the next hotel in Hakone region. Koichiro had lot's of knowledge on the area and looked out the time schedules and best routes for our visit. I can warmly recommend him for a tour!

“ A great guide. Highly recommended! ”

This was my first visit to Japan and planning the details of my trip was becoming overwhelming. So happy to have found out about TripleLights and especially Koichiro. I can't say enough good things about him. He speaks excellent English and was easy to talk to. When I gave him a list of things that I wanted to see, he was able to quickly setup an itinerary for me that made sense given the locations to make the best use of my time. He even offered suggestions on other places to see that might interest me. Throughout the whole planning process, he was very flexible and answered all my questions in a timely manner. One thing that really stood out was his research into the places I wanted to visit. I know that he was unfamiliar with one of them and made a special effort to review the place ahead of time to make sure we didn't encounter any surprises on the way. As a guide, he made me feel comfortable from day one. He's dependable, funny, makes interesting observations and as an added bonus takes great pictures! I'd highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a guide.

“ My son and my first time in Japan and Tokyo a trip of a lifetime ”

Well where to start , if you are looking for a personal guide , i can not recommend someone more qualified and more wonderful than Koichiro . What a wonderful friendly and warm soul he is , so helpful and thoughtful on my son and i trip to Tokyo and the area around , i requested a trip to the wind and ice cave near Mt Fuji ,and even though Koichiro had not been himself yet , you couldn't tell because how professional he was , always looking out for us and our needs .He went out of the way to make sure we were happy and comfortable ,I really enjoyed the fish market , if you come to Tokyo it is a must and Koichiro knows the best spots and vendors to sample , i felt so much at ease with him at our side ,We hired a guide but ended up making a new friend that i hope we see again on our next trip to the land of the rising sun , he shared a dream of climbing Mt Fuji and watching the sun rise , i hope his dream comes true someday soon . i picked Koichiro because i wanted someone young enough to be able to interact with my 15 yr old son and his interests , yet Koichiro is wise beyond his years very flexible, if you are looking for a boring old guide that see this as just a job don't pick Koichiro he isn't that person . He is a very talented and aliveand very knowledgeable person whom is loving and caring of those he guides , all i can say is we were very blessed to have him show us his country and see it through the eyes of a local, thank you again so much for making this a wonderful trip for Ian and i .
