“ A day on Tokyo ”

Yasuro was a kindly and efficient guide. He adeptly ushered us through many sites of Tokyo, providing information and local knowledge. He gave us a good balance of things to see and do. We could never have seen so much of Tokyo in a day without his help. A lovely person to spend a day with! Many thanks, Yasuro


Dear Elaine and Rod, Thank you very much for warm and generous review for me! Have you arrived in Kanazawa without any trouble? It may be cooler than in Tokyo. Please take care of your selves and have good memories of your tour in Japan. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro

“ The best tour guide ever! ”

Yasuro is simply the best tour guide we’ve ever had. We were in Tokyo for a very short time and wanted to book a guide. Yasuro responded to my message right away and was so polite and pleasant. He helped me plan the itinerary and also respected what we wanted to see. He kept us updated about everything (including the scary typhoon!) and made everything so easy for us. We had such an amazing time touring with Yasuro over the past two days and couldn’t stop raving about him. He is so knowledgeable about Tokyo and Japan’s history. He is also very patient and kind, and allowed us to stop if we wanted to see something or shop. We felt like he treated us (me, my sister, and close friend) like family. I can’t recommend him enough! He is simply the best and we will definitely use him as a guide if... read more

“ Hiking in Kamakura ”

I spent a lovely day with Yasuro hiking the Daibutsu trail and experiencing some sites in Kamakura. It felt like hiking with a good friend. Yasuro even brought hiking sticks when he picked me up from the hotel. I learnt a lot about the area and Japanese life during that day. Thank you Yasuro! Hopefully we can go on another hike the next time I am in Tokyo.


Dear Ms. Susann, Thank you very much for your warm and generous review for me. It was my pleasure being with you chatting as we trailed through the hills of Kamakura. Yes, shall we go to Mt. Takao (598m) in the West of Tokyo, as shown in your guide book, when you have a chance to come to Tokyo again. Until then please take care of yourself, your family as well as your large dog. Best regards, Yasuro
