“ 31st Bday in Tokyo ”

I spent my 31st Birthday with Yuki as a guide and it was an awesome choice. Yuki was absolutely amazing. He was super kind and knowledgeable. He showed us photos and gave us history of the places we visited. He was also very flexible with time and his English was good. He even guided us to our night tour as my friend and I weren’t sure how to navigate the subway. I would definitely recommend Yuki. Thank You for making my birthday memorable.

Yuki:

Dear Lauren, Thank you for your review of my tour. I feel very happy to know that you enjoyed my tour. Best regards, Yuki

“ A great tour that was tailored very well for us, and the best sushi meal ever! ”

Yuki was very knowledgable and great at helping us navigate the fish market, explaining what everything meant and how things work here in Japan, and lots about the history of the place and the culture. Highly recommend a tour with him. He also took us to an incredible restaurant for lunch, which we'd never have found on our own. The quality of the sushi we ate was extremely high, and good value for what it was.

Yuki:

Dear Charlotte, Thank you for writing the review of my tour. It was a short tour, but I am grad you have enjoyed it. Best regards, Yuki

“ Excellent 1 day tour of Tokyo with knowledgable and lovely Yuki ”

Yuki was a great tour guide. He met us at our hotel and took us to the Meiji shrine, grand palace and Senso-ji as we wanted to see the highlights in our short time in Tokyo. As well as being informative about the places we visited he gave us hints and tips for our stay in japan, including navigating the subway system and how to activate our JR passes. He also took us to his favourite Ramen bar for lunch, which was fantastic, and introduced us to the impressive green tea ice cream shop (7 different versions based on tea strength - only the brave go for level 7). All in all a great day and wonderful introduction to Tokyo and Japan. Thank you Yuki! Susanne & David

Yuki:

Dear David, Thank you very much for writing the review of my tour in the middle of your travel. The weather is very nice and you were very lucky to see the wedding ceremony in the shrine. I am very glad you liked the Ramen retaurant and the ice cream shop. Food is a very important part of my tour and I like to find good places for lunch. Please give my best regards to your wife Susan.

“ 2-day Trip from Tokyo to Kyoto ”

My family and I really enjoyed our 2-day tour from Kyoto to Tokyo with Yuki -- and would definitely encourage others to consider this tour! Yuki made our experiences both extremely memorable and enjoyable, and he definitely created an awesome itinerary that showcased all of the highlights of Kyoto. From the get-go, he was very flexible and willing to tailor the tour to our particular interests, and he had very good ideas for exposing us to the Japanese culture. Upon our inquiry, he was even flexible enough to extend his usual one-day Kyoto itinerary to an overnight two-day itinerary, which was highly worth the additional cost. We were able to see everything on our list in an extremely short amount of time - from shrines and temples to beautiful Japanese gardens, the bamboo forest, and ev... read more

Dear Kristen, Thank you for writing such an elaborate review of my tour. It was the best tour to Kyoto for me too. You are very generous to join me the Maiko show and Kyoto dinner near Gion.

My colleagues and I, all Kumon instructors had a wonderful day in Kamakura with Yuki. Yuki is warm, intelligent and knowledgeable guide also very flexible and accommodating.

“ Great tour with Yuki ”

We had a great tour with Yuki. He is knowledgeable and thoughtful in how he conducted the tour. We were traveling with our 8 year old daughter and 10month old son and Yuki was considerate of their needs as well. We felt confident touring Kyoto and Lake Kawaguchi without having to worry about the language barrier and/or navigating the public transport system and could focus on enjoying the sights.

Yuki:

Dear Fran, Thank you for your review of my tours. I was glad to guide your family without any trouble. One day tour to Kyoto is challenging for me too. We saw Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi and it was not so cold. It was more crowded than I expected at this time of the year, but I learned how to manage the tour in that condition. Best regards, Yuki

Hello Everyone! If you are doing a day tour, Yuki is the best and highly recommended! He gives you historical background of every place we went to and took us shopping to the cheapest places! We will get him again when we come back to Japan for a visit! Thanks Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Robelyn, Thank you for writing a review of my tour of Tokyo. I was very happy when your family listens to my explanation of each site and gave me questions about our country and people. My tour is very flexible to reflect the interests of the guest so I changed my route to take you to my favorite ramen shop and added Ameyoko discount streets where you bought so many Japanese sweets. I hope your family has enjoyed traveling Japan. Best regards, Yuki

“ Wonderful Day in Kyoto ”

My 11 year old son and I began our trip in Tokyo with Yuki-san. We started the day taking the shinkansen out of Shinagawa Station and taking the local train once in Kyoto to the Fushimi Shrine. We did the Miyabi Tour. We followed the course and had lunch at a delicious tonkatsu restaurant that Yuki-san found for us because of my picky 11 year old eater. The most memorable site for us was the Kinkaku Temple late afternoon. The sunset hit the temple just right and it shone in its beautiful gold color. We were back in Tokyo by 8 p.m. Originally, I thought the 12 hour trip would be too much for my son. Not at all. Time flew by and we were not tired, one bit. My son said, "I want to take another tour with Yuki-san when we come back to Japan". I agree, I highly recommend h... read more

Yuki:

Dear Miho, Thank you very much for writing such a specific review of my tour. It was my pleasure to guide you and your son to Kyoto when it is not so crowded. The day was very fine and mild in the last week of December but it snowed on the next day. Sorry for the walk to find the Tonkatsu restaurant, its entrance was very different from what I expected. I will look for your visit of Japan again. Yuki

Yuki is a thoughtful and intelligent guide, who has the ability to portray the information without too much chatter. Yuki has a lovely subtle humour and gives honest answers to the many questions asked of him. Yuki took us to the Meiji Shrine, Asakusa and Tsukiji fish markets, whilst familiarising us with the rail system and general layout of Tokyo. A day we’ll spent. Thank you, Yuki.

“ Excellent and patient guide ”

Yuki did an excellent job showing up around Meiji shrine and Senso-Ji temple as well as taking us on a day trip to Hakone to view Mt.Fuji (includes many different forms of transportation). He was very helpful with helping us navigate the metro, trains, buses particularly with having a stroller and needing to use elevators at times. He was also very patient with our almost 5 year old who was holding Yuki’s hand by the end of the tour.

Yuki:

Dear Katherin, Thank you for taking your time for the nice review. It was Saturday, so Hakone was still crowded at the end of the autumn color season. I tried to make the tour easy and we were lucky to see the gracious Mt. Fuji. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki

“ An insightful and energetic guide! ”

If you want to make the most of a short visit, I highly recommend hiring Yuki. This was my first trip to Tokyo and of course wanted to see everything, which is ridiculous. Yuki patiently fielded my many requests and crafted an itinerary that let me sample places I was most interested in. He kept us moving along on schedule, though I never felt pressured and enjoyed my time. He also took me on short detours that gave me a more local perspective. An intelligent and charming travel companion, Yuki sports a dapper homburg that is easy to spot in a crowd. I could never have accomplished this visit by myself. Thank you Yuki for an enjoyable introduction to this amazing metropolis!

Dear Carol, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am very glad that you have satisfied with the tour. It was a great challenge for me to cover so many places within a limited time. Please enjoy your cruising from Yokohama. Yuki

“ A perfect Fall day trip n Kamakura ”

Yuki is a wonderful, warm, and very knowledgeable tour guide. He took us on a day trip to the historical coastal town of Kamakura which is a village dating back to Yoritomo’s shogunate government in 1192. Kamakura lies amid wooded hills filled with ancient Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. Yuki took us to see the amazing Great Buddha, beautiful Hasedera Temple, and the Hokokuji Temple with an interesting serene bamboo garden. Along the way Akira told us history and stories of the temples and the Goddess of Mercy (Kannon). We also had a delicious lunch treat at a local restaurant with home cooked meal. We really enjoyed our lovely Fall weather day trip in Kamakura with Yuki. Thank you very much, Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Mandy, Thank you for the detailed review of my tour including your understanding of Japanese history. I was very happy you enjoyed my story of each place. Sorry for the poor autumn colors in this year because of the salt deposit due to the windy typhoon which is very rare. Please give my best regards to your husband and friends. Yuki

“ Excellent, thoughtful guide. ”

Extremely thorough and well planned. We would highly recommend Yuki to anyone visiting Japan. Yuki made our first Tokyo and Yokohama experience so enjoyable, allowing us to navigate our desired locations without having to stress about the confusing train routes, signs, language issues, etc. He also found us popular-priced wonderful restaurants that we all enjoyed. He also helped us buy tickets for the high-speed rail line, making the purchase process much easier for us.

Yuki:

Dear Linda, Thank you for your nice review of my tour. It was a new experience for me to look around high end shopping malls. It is difficult to find a good restaurant in Harajuku area during week end. I was glad you liked the place. Please give my best regards to the others, too. Yuki

“ A great a la carte day in Tokyo with Yuki ”

My family and I had a wonderful day with Yuki seeing the three main sights of Tokyo that we were keen to visit: Meiji Shrine, Imperial Palace East Garden and Senso-Ji Temple. Yuki kindly greeted us at our Disney Resort hotel and helped us with our tickets and train choices throughout the day, and ensured we finished the day on the correct train back to Maihama. Although we were a little slow due to sore feet and blisters from a few prior busy days at Disneyland and Sea, Yuki allowed for this and made sure he minimised the additional miles that can come with walking tours. He had a very calming demeanour and was really quite knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited, and our ramen lunch was excellent.

Yuki was a great guide for my family. He handled the needs of grandparents and teenagers changing things up on the itinerary as needed to accommodate the group. He’s also so knowledgeable.

We had an amazing day with Mr. Yuki visiting Koyto with specific three locations listed on his guide. We told him what we wanted to see and he planned out the day out perfectly and seamlessLy.

We spent five days in Tokyo after a cruise, and two of those days were spent with Yuki. We were extremely pleased with our experience, and highly recommend both TripleLights and Yuki. We initially had booked a private tour for one day, but since the experience of booking through TripleLights was so easy we later added a second day. While we did have several requests, we also told Yuki about our general interests. With our interests in mind he designed a custom itinerary. For example, we are interested in gardens, so in addition to the Shinjuku-Gyoen garden he added both the Koishikawa-Korakuen and Kiyosumi Gardens.

We took the tour of Hakone with Yuki on Oct 4, 2018. It was a cloudy day with little amount of rain hence we were not able to see Mount FUji. Mr. Yuki had already informed us about it but still we went ahead with the trip. We saw the Hakone Open Air museum, Gora Park, Ropeway to see the volcanic valley and tour of Lake Ashi. The trip was well organised and paced with Mr. Yuki, though we were lagging behind in time in our trip but still Mr. Yuki planned our trip in such a way that we did not miss out on seeing any sight seeing places and enjoyed our trip to Hakone even if we could not see Mount Fuji.

Yuki was amazing. He was informative without being too school - ish. Showed us the sites and somehow we never got separated in the crowds! We just realized and let him do his thing and it was a fabulous day. We threw him a loop by wanting a particular store we could not find the day before. He took us.It involved train, connections, elevators, a maze of stores but he got us there without hesitation or complaint. It made my son's trip. He did this without compromising the other sites at all. How, I do not know! If you are lucky he will take you to his favourite lunch spot and, believe me it's a treat. Thank you, Yuki!

Yuki was engaging and very pleasant. We enjoyed our time with him, however found the tour itself a little uninspiring as it really only covered the gardens and perimeter of the Imperial Palace. Obviously it would be so much more interesting if you were able to tour the palace itself. Yuki himself was helpful and informative, and we were pleased with what he provided.

Dear William, Thank you for your review. I understand your complaint but inside of the Palace building is not open to public so I can't guide you there.

Wen we were hit by a heavy rain, Yuki readjusted our schedule so that we were out of the weather while travelling to our next destination, then picked up our original route once the rain stopped.

Yuki has mastered the art of making a first time tourist feel Welcomed and Comfortable in many parts of Japan. We went to the Tsukiji fish market which could have been a crowded maze without the knowledge and skill of Yuki. He taught us about the fish, the skill of the butchers and then we went to a local restaurant where we felt like family and ate the best sushi we ever had. The second tour was a 12 hour tour ,Tokyo to Kyoto. WOW We traveled the Shinkansen (bullet train) ,went to the 1001 Buddhas temple (Sanjusangendo) and to the Fushimi Inari Shrine.

Yuki was an excellent guide that I would definitely recommend to anyone! His tour of Kamakura allowed us to see so many great places in one day like the Great Buddha, Hasedera Temple, Hokokuji Temple and Hachimangu Shrine. We never felt rushed, always having plenty of time to really take in each location. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, providing great information about the history of all the places we went. He was great at answering any questions we had and even went out of his way to help us figure out which trains to take for when we would be traveling on our own later that week. I also appreciated how accommodating he was, being flexible when we needed to change the start time of our tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kamakura and loved having Yuki as our guide!

“ 1 day in tokyo ”

My parents and I spent a few days in Japan and this was our first time here. We wanted to see as much as possible in our short stay so we hired a private tour guide (Yuki.) Yuki was an amazing and kind host. He showed us around Tsujiki, Akihabara, and the Tokyo Sky Tree. He was very informative and if I am ever back in Tokyo in need of a guide I would book him without a second thought. Thank you very much Yuki for a memorable experience.

Yuki:

Thank you for your prompt review for yestersday's tour. I enjoyed the various street foods with your family such as Satusma-age (fish meat with shrinmp and vegetablen), Steak of Japanese beef at Tsukiji. I found that we can have other street foods in Akihabara, too. Food is an important Japanese culture both traditional and is up-to-dated. So I always recommend my guests to try them as a part of my tour. Best regards, Yuki

“ Excellent tour ”

Yuki provided us with a wonderful 4 hour tour. We started with a bird's eye view of Tokyo from the world trade center building, then headed to nearby shrine. Afterwards, we toured the Meiji Jingo shrine. Yuki taught us about Shoguns, Emperor rule, Buddhism and Shinto. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We would tour with Yuki again, without question.

Yuki:

Dear Bride, Thank you for your review! I enjoyed the tour as you showed great interests to the places and my explanation of them. Please come again, as there are many good ski resorts in Japan. Please give my best regards to your husband, too.

“ Day trip to Kamakura from Tokyo ”

Four of us had a fantastic day touring the sights of Kamakura. Yuki met us at our hotel and that helped streamline our day so we didn’t have to figure out navigating through the train stations. Yuki was very informative in regards to the history at the sights we visited. I would highly recommend Yuki as a tour guide as our day was fun and full of Japanese history. Excellent day tour with Yuki from Tokyo to Kamakura.

Yuki:

Dear Bill, Thank you for writing the review of my tour. I felt happy when you were interested in places I took and enjoyed sushi lunch. Please give my best regards to your uncle and wife. Best regards, Yuki

Please ask me the availability of this tour before you book it.
The wholesale area of Tsukiji will move to Toyosu on October 11th, 2018 but its outer market will stay at Tsukiji where we can enjoy good sushi and delicious Japanese foods.
I have a one day tour to Kyoto from Tokyo, but you have to pay the cost of about 30,000 JPY per person for the transportation of you and me.
