About

Hello, my name is Yo OGAWA. Please call me Yo. I have been working for senior high schools teaching Japanese history. I have traveled almost all over Japan from Hokkaido to Okinawa. My research field is Canada and I have been to many places in Canada several times.
I love outdoor activities like skiing, trekking and cycling and so on. My favorite ski areas are Shiga-height and Hakuba. I can arrange your ski tours in winter and trekking in summer season there.

“ Thank you for many wonderful discoveries! ”

We were really lucky to have contacted Yo at TripleLights. That was our first trip to Japan. Yo helped us immensely to custom make our itinerary, and he booked tickets and events for us. Everything was planned to the second. Yo was very flexible when we decided to make some changes on the go, and he arranged two more activities for us. We wanted to watch the sumo training but all of a sudden the stable canceled it. Yo found a way for us to watch it in a different stable the following day. It was a true pleasure to be guided by Yo. We highly recommend him for your trip in Japan. Thank you very, very much, Yo!

“ Half day Tokyo Tour ”

What a gentleman! Yo was great filling in the gaps of things we missed on our own. He has a lot of knowledge about Tokyo and the history of Japan and a very pleasing manner. He lived in Delaware for a bit and has a great command of the English language. My family had a great time with him.

“ Thank you Triple Lights Japan. ”

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Yo. We can't even imagine how we would have initially managed the multiple rail systems within the Japan Rail network without him. The fact he picked us up from our hotel was appreciated. We would recommend his services and thank Triple Lights.
