About

Hi, I am Nobu, a national certified tour guide.

My main areas as a guide are Tokyo and its Suburbs including Nikko, Hakone and Mt. Fuji. I can also guide you in Chiba, Ibaraki and Kanagawa.

Many people arrive at Narita Airport, but directly go to Tokyo or other areas.
However, there are many good places to visit near Narita.
I have been living in Chiba for more than 25 years and know about this area including Narita very well. If you arrive at or leave Narita Airport and have a half or full day in Narita, please contact me! I am willing to guide you in this area.

Another area I would like to guide you is Tohoku District, including my hometown, Iwate.
There are also many good places, but most people do not know about this District.
You can easily visit there in 2 hours by Shinkansen (Bullet Train).
If you have got a JR pass, you do not Need to worry about transportation fee.
If you are interested in this District, please contact me. I can help you to make a plan.

I am looking Forward to Meeting you soon in Japan!

“ Great Day In Tokyo With Nobu ”

We needed both a guide and driver to pick us and our luggage up at the end of a cruise. Nobu arranged for the car and driver, arrived promptly at the cruise terminal at the time agreed upon and was extremely flexible with our itinerary. We couldn't have asked for a better one day tour of Tokyo. Nobu is a very kind and knowledgable man and we would not hesitate to hire him again. He even helped us with our luggage at our hotel at the end of the day. Thanks again for a great day, Nobu!

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Kathy. I am glad to know that you were satisfied with the tour with me. I am Looking Forward to seeing you again in the future! Nobu

“ Amazing trip to the Tokyo G-cans! ”

I contacted seven different tour guides, both the top rated guides on this site and on two other sites to take us on a Tokyo G-cans tour. None of the guides I contacted would take us, as the tour was slightly out of the ordinary for them...Thankfully this site put me in touch with the guide Nobu-san and he happily organised the whole tour for us. Nobu planned it perfectly, despite never having been there before. He was on-time to meet us, quietly spoken, very friendly and did well to translate for us while on the tour. We had a great time. I would strongly suggest Nobu, particularly if you want to do something slightly different to all the other tourists in Japan. Thanks again Nobu!

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Kirk. It was an exciting tour for me, too. It is my pleasure to guide guests to different places from standard Tourist courses because I can learn a lot from such tours. Thank you again for giving me a chance to visit G-cans, Kirk. Nobu

“ Wonderful day visiting Mount Fuji ”

As I wanted to visit Mount Fuji and didn't research on how to get there, I skimmed through available travel guides on TripleLights to take me there and Nobu san was recommended to me through another travel guide. Nobu san was a great and knowledgeable guide - he provided good information of the mountain and its surroundings. He timed our visit well which included visits to the panoramic viewing area by cable car, the boat ride at Lake Kawaguchi and a park nearby. The day was complimented by great view of Mount Fuji as the weather was perfect that day and I took many picture perfect photos and videos of Mount Fuji. It was a day well spent! Thank you Nobu san and TripleLights.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Lee san! I am glad to know that you enjoyed the tour with me. It was really a good day to see Mt. Fuji and I also enjoyed the beautiful mountain. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Nobu

“ Visit to mount Fujy ”

Good trip however unfortunately the weather was not the best for the day. I found a bit too long the trip by bus, maybe worth to inform that half of the day will be spent on travelling. For the rest it was a good day.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review, Mara. Unfortunately it was snowing on that day. I regret to say I could not control the weather. I thought you understood how long we had to ride on a bus in Advance by the itinerary. Maybe I should have reminded you more clearly. I appreciate your comment. Best regards, Nobu
