“ August 8 tour ”

Mr. Yasuro is a highly qualified tour guide. He brought us to places of interest we requested and made sure that our tour was smooth and on time. We only asked for a 4 hour tour and he guided us well along the way. My husband couldn’t walk too fast because of knee surgery but Mr. Yasuro walked with him so that he is not left behind. Mr. Yasu knows the city well and is very well versed with its history. Thank you!


Dear Mrs. Maria Minda, Thank you very much for you warm compliments to my yesterday's guide service. I was very happy, though for a few hours, being with gentle minded people, like you. Your grandson is a real good boy; he pays respects to his grandparents and supports especially his grandpa with his troubled knee. Please take care of your selves as your trip is still going on. Thank you again. Hoping to see you again. Best regards, Yasuro

For sure we will book Mr. Yasuro on our next visit to Japan! Thanks Mr. Yasuro!!!!


Dear Ms. Carla, Thank you very much for your warm compliments to me. I am pleased that no body of you got in trouble of sickness or injury during the 5 day tour. I will never forget your beloved boys so excited naturally with the scenery of a waterfall and a lake in Nikko as well as so many dragonflies; and I found that you are the great dragonfly catcher! Please take care of yourselves especially your father and mother in law who looked a bit tired with the long journey from Los. See you someday again. Thank you again! Best regards, Yasuro

Yasuro was a wonderful guide with excellent English and a thoughtful manner. His extensive knowledge gave us the opportunity to see many interesting back street shops and icons. We highly recommend Yasuro.

“ Very pleasant day out with Yasuro ”

I went with Yasuro to Kamakura. Everything was well organised and he was very thoughtful and knowledgable about the area, history, religion and culture. He was a very warm, kind and patient person and I highly recommend him to others.


Dear Ms Nerilee, Thank you very much for your warm compliments of me. I had very pleasant time with you exchanging opinions on various subjects of life. But I realize that I need more knowledges to be a good guide. So please take care of yourself and I want to meet you again someday in Japan again. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro

“ A very kind and accommodating gentleman. ”

We took a day trip to Kamakura with Yasuro san, and should say that we had a very good time with him checking out various places. We had booked a 6 hour trip with him which got delayed due to traffic jams and we taking our time to see places and also shop around in Kamakura, and the tour time went over 8 hours, however Yasuro san declined to take extra for the additional time he spent with us. He is kind, informative and very accommodating.


Dear Mr. Santosh, Thank you very much for your warm compliments of me. I observed that your family are so united that every body love each other and your children especially pay respect to your mother. As you guarantee I will have my first grandchild next year, I guarantee your children will grow without any problem. Thank you very much again. Please take care of your selves and your father too. Best regards, Yasuro
