“ Excellent guide ”

Yuji was very meticulous and helpful. He gave us a lot of sound advice during the trip. We enjoyed his tour very much. Would definitely look for him again if we need a guide next time.

Yuji:

Dear Yen, Thank you again for having booked with me. I have revised some itinerary as I thought you could enjoy some well-known sightseeing spots. There are more to see but you can save them for your next visits in the future. If the weather is fine, Mt. Fuji area offers variety of Mt Fuji faces from different angles and Mt. Fuji shows different faces season by season. You may try Yoshida trail next time for your Mt. Fuji climbing. Please enjoy further for the rest of days in Japan. Take care. Yuji

“ Very caring aervic ”

Yuji helped me customize my itinerary. He was on time and provIded good information along the way. He was informative, caring and respected my requests. We went to a great place for lunch and then at the end of the day as arranged, he dropped me off at the Mishima train station. Like a caring family member, he came inside the train station to make sure I was all setup for my train departure. Highly reliable and recommended.

Yuji:

Dear Nalneesh Thank you for your taking time to write a review. I am more than happy to have received a good review. We were so blessed with a good weather and that was really great. We also had good insightful conversations. I know you are busy but I will be more than glad if I can be with you again in the near future. Yuji

“ Hakone day trip ”

We had 1 full day in Hakone and Yuji planned a great day trip. He shared lot of historical information which made the places more interesting. He is a great guy to have conversation on different topics. When he found out we had more time than originally planned, he was flexible and took us to few more places.

Yuji:

Dear Suresh, Thank you for your taking time to review the tour. Two weeks passed but I remember all scenes with your family just like yesterday. I enjoyed the tour with your family as well. I believe you had good memories in other parts of Japan and in Indonesia. One thing I still think about is that I did not have much time at the ending of the tour at the station. Thank you again for booking with me and hope to see your family some other time. Yuji

“ Trip to Tokyo and Hakone ”

We had a four day tour with Mr Yuji. We were a group of four. Yuji is an excellent guide and a genuine human being. He showed us Several places in Tokyo and had two day trip to Hakone. Inspite of scorching heat he made sure our trip was extremely efficient and comfortable at the same time. I would highly recommend him without any reservations. Thanks Yuji for your help!!

Yuji:

Dear Premila When you booked with me, I thought I have more days to prepare but it is over now. I miss you all. Definitely good 4 days. Thank you again and I hope you enjoy the rest of days in Japan. Yuji

“ Vails in Hakone ”

Yuji was very easy to get along with. He was very knowledgeable about the area. My daughter was not feeling well and Yuji slowed the tour down kept us in the shade and got us to a restaurant that had food she would like!! We also wanted to see the open air museum and Yuji made time for it. We were leaving that day and Yuji made sure we got to the train and knew where we were going from there. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to tour this are of Japan!!

Yuji:

Dear Maribeth, Thank you for taking time to review the tour. It was a hot day and I felt that walking in the sun too long was a bit dangerous. I was not completely successful in walking in the shade all the way. I am glad that your family liked the restaurant and I thought lunch time must have given you some relaxation in breeze and in the shade. We were unfortunate as to views of Mt. Fuji to my regret. My original plan did not include Open Air Museum but I am glad to have asked you if you would like to go since it is one of the top 15 "must go" tourists' destinations. I would be happy to guide you again when you would think of coming back to Japan and think of visiting Mt. Fuji area. Take best care of yourself. Yuji
