“ A perfect way to tour Tokyo - with Yuki! ”

Yuki is a fine gentleman and very knowledgeable tour guide (his English is excellent) who was able to adjust and tailor our day just as we wanted (even with last minute changes!). He was very helpful and for us the highlight was touring the Imperial Palace and also his amazing suggestion of a great sushi spot in Tsukiji. We avoided some of the busy areas for more traditional under-the-radar areas and got to take in the most of the culture. Yuki was a star and even helped take photos of us on our day. Hopefully he visits London sometime! Thank you Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Alex, Thank you for taking my tour and the nice view of my Tokyo tour. My tour is very flexible for adjusting to the interests of my guests. The Sushi restaurant is different from other places in Tsukiji. I’m glad you and Kim liked it. Enjoy your stay in Japan Yuki

Yuki was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations!

Yuki:

Dear Yen, Thank you for writing a review of my tour to Hakone. It was unfortunate that you couldn't see Mt. Fuji but there are nice places such as Lake Ashi and the Open Air Museum. I hope you saw Mt. Fuji during your stay. Best regards, Yuki

“ A great guide to visit Hakone! ”

Our experience with Yuki was amazing: he knows perfectly the area and how to move fast there to visit everything in a day without missing any great spot. He proposed us a great tour and we asked him to include a particular Onsen we’d love to see: he included it and was a fantastic experience, having a Hot spring water bath looking to Mount Fuji; it was a memorable day that couldn’t be possible without his knowledge and experience. He even accompanied us to the entry of Chinatown for having dinner after the tour! Yuki is a great professional and a great person too. We’ll always remember this day in Hakone, thanks for everything, Yuki!!!!

Yuki:

Dear Antonio, Thank you for your review of my tour so soon. It was a good experience to have the outdoor bath with you. I will include the bath into my tour. Please give my best regard to your family, too. Yuki
