“ Mr. Yuji highly recommendable ”

Mr.Yuji was a very informative tour guide to our family. We chased Mt.Fuji and we did it! He drove us around Kawaguchiko. With him we experienced the horse meat sashimi, authentic hoto noodles, the song of mt.fuji at 60kph, mt.fuji from oshino park, wind cave & learned about the suicide forest. He's very knowlegeable and on time.

Yuji:

Dear Rhodora Thank you for your review. Just like yesterday, I remember the tour with your family. How is your family? The weather was not so good but we made it and we were able to see Mt. Fuji finally. It could have been much better, though, if we could have been able to see the whole. But I am sure you enjoyed whole Mt. Fuji on the following day. See other time hopefully at your beach in Philippines. Uuji

“ Tokyo in the fast lane ”

If your looking to see the most for your money and have a guide that is informative.. Yuji is your guy. I landed in Tokyo and met Yuji at the meeting spot at my hotel at the scheduled time. I didn’t have to find him, he found me. His character is sweet, funny, kind and very well versed in his culture. I was so amazed at what he showed me and taught me in the time I booked him for which was 10 hours. He moves at your speed and makes it all about you. His English is fantastic and there were no communication barriers at all. Yuji is Amazing and I walked away with a new friend in the world. Thank you Yuji from the bottom of my heart! I would do this tour all over again with him. He really made this trip something very special for me. So if you plan a tour I strongly suggest you select him.. ... read more

Yuji:

Dear Christy Thank you for your great review. I feel you just like yesterday. It was so nice for me, too, having met you. Due to time limitation, we could not do all but it was fun for me, too. I thank you again for having booked with me and I feel so happy. Thank you again, Christy. Yuji

“ Excellent experience and being in very good hands ”

Yuji was very friendly, helpful and communicative even before we met. I had somewhat vague idea of how our trip should work out and Yuji provided much more details, did so much of preparation, including public transportation schedules, activitity passes,... Yuji was also flexible and attentive to our needs, especially when we have 2 little kids going with us. We thus highly recommend Yuji!

Yuji:

Dear Zoom Thank you for your taking time to review the tour. I was so worried about the weather but we were O.K. and we were lucky. Kids did it well during the tour. Hakone area with public transportation, especially with kids, is sometimes difficult to go along but it went well. I hope you will continue good days here in Japan. I would like to be of any further help to you when you would think you would need my assistance. Thank you again for your booking and review. Yuji

“ An excellent guide and a very helpful person ”

We engaged Yuji for two visits one for two days with four friends and the other for my wife. On our visit the clouds had restricted the views of Fuji San but Yuji found spots on the lakes from where we could do good photography. The next day was totally cloudy wet and cold yet Yuji found places such as Oshiano to make memorable visits. He has good knowledge of interesting restaurants specialising in local cuisine During my wife’s visit the gorgeous weather enabled several spots for “Kodak moments” Yuji also volunteered to pick up my wife from Mishima and drop her to Shizuoka Sohe went above and beyond guiding services Yuji is now a dear friend who made our trips to Fuji truly memorable

Yuji:

Dear Ramesh and Radha, Thank you for days with 5 people and Radha. Radha san was blessed with beautiful weather and I am glad. Radha san mentioned the main purpose was her pilgrimage to Mt. Fuji and I guess she fulfilled it. Days with all of you are so much memorable for me, too. I eventually covered wide area and I believe that must have eased her trip to Mt. Fuji area. I hope all of you will keep on enjoying the rest of days in Japan and I look forward to seeing you again some day, either in this country or your country. Until then. Let us keep our healthy conditions. Yuji

“ Completed our itinerary in full and got us back to our ship in good time ”

Yuji took the 4 of us up to 5th station Mt Fuji in his car. We had coffee at the top before descending to the Heritage Cente where we also visited the Shinto shrine. The drive back took us through the hills and not on Expressway. An excellent day out with Yuji easy to understand and very flexible with our itinerary.

Yuji:

Dear Allan, thank you for taking time to write a review. It was not a perfect day for 5th station of Fujinomiya Trail but it was really worthwhile for you to leave your steps. I am so glad we made it back on time and you enjoyed the tour. I hope you continue enjoying your tour and hope to see some other time. Thank you again. Yuji
