“ Great sushi! ”

We spent one full day with Yuki touring Tokyo and enjoyed it very much! Yuki was very organized and suggested a terrific lunch spot. We had a day in Tokyo on our own and then joined Yuki again for a morning tour of Tokyo including a delicious sushi lunch. He then traveled with us to our cruise ship in Yokohama. It couldn’t have been easier! Thanks again Yuki, Margaret and Jeff

Yuki:

Dear Margaret, Thank you for taking my tour. The sushi restaurant is one of my favorite in Tsukiji. I hope you have enjoyed cruising around Japan. Yuki

“ Charming and witty ”

My daughter and I did an overnight tour to Takayama and Shiragawa organised by Yuki san. Takayama is lovely but a bit touristy and he went out of his way to show us other aspects of the old town which we appreciated. We also fined very well on Hida beef at a very new and excellent restaurant he sought out. Very reasonable price and amazing food. Yuki is fluent, patient and fun. I would recommend him to any traveller. Thank you Yuki. Lynne and Stacey

Yuki:

Dear Lynne, Thank you for taking my tour. You were the second ones who took my tour of Takayama. I am very glad if you have enjoyed Takayama tour. Best regards, Yuki

“ Best guide in japan ”

We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour by Yuki to hakone. Yuki was very responsive with our enquiries prior to our trip and took initiative to provide updates for the trip. He was very attentive and flexible and provide us with different options and suggestion to ensure we have a pleasant trip. Thanks to his recommendation, we had one of the best soba in japan! We will surely recommend him to anyone who may be looking for a guide.

Yuki:

Dear Michelle, Thank you for taking my tour of Hakone. It was my first trip after Hakone was hit by a strong Typhoon with record breaking rainfall. We planed to visit Mt. Koma but we changed the plan as it was hazy and partly cloudy. Instead, I took you to Ubako to see Mt. Fuji and visited Gora Park. I am glad to finish our tour without serious problems except the 40 min waiting for taking photos at the Torii gate on the lake. Best regards, Yuki

“ A great day in Tokyo with Yuki! ”

Yuki was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide. He was on time, spoke great English and is very polite and fun. He was very accommodating to our schedule, showed us the ropes with public transportation; took us to a great place for lunch and even hunted down a very special item we were looking for. Thank you Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Marcia, Thank you for taking my tour. Kiyosumi Garden is my favorite place with its quietness and unique setups of stones. Tower Knife is the best place to buy Japanese kitchen knives. Please give my best regards to other members, too. Yuki

Yuki worked very hard to make sure our group of 5 could visit the three gardens we had planned to see as well as the outer fish market and the Akihabara area. Yuki helped us order lunch in a restaurant and made sure we returned safely back to our hotel at the end of the day.

“ Excellent Tour - 2nd Time ”

I took a tour with Yuki a year ago. And, again, this October with three friends who were experiencing their first Japan visit. Friends from Cape Town commented that Tsukiji Outer Market tour with Yuki was one of their highlights and sent me a photo of their Japanese culinary equipment acquisitions, including the beautiful Japanese knife purchased with the help of Yuki. Thank you very much, Yuki, for your friendly, fun and educational 1/2-day tour. Best regards. Mickey

It was my family trip and also first time to Tokyo. We decided to engage a guide in order to maximize our time. We are fortunate to have Yuki as our tour guide. He is patient, punctual, knowledgeable and flexible. We encountered typhoon during our trip and also raining. We are so worried that we might not able to go our desired destinations as scheduled. He adjusted our itinerary based on weather and planned the day to ensure we had experience and tried his very best to cover the destinations we had chosen. Very professional guide and did not disappoint us. He recommended to visit Digital Art Museum which was not included in our itinerary and also helped us to buy tickets. My daughter enjoyed it very much. He also took us to one of his favourite spot to eat sushi for lunch. The quality is... read more

“ 2 day tour from Tokyo to Kyoto ”

It was our first visit to Japan and we were a little daunted by the language barrier as we only speak English at home. We are from Australia and were looking forward to our upcoming holiday in Japan when we decided to find out if we could get a guide to assist us early in our trip. That way we hopefully would have a grasp of how to use the train system in Japan along with any information for interacting with the locals. Yuki was a great guide for us and he was very freindly, helpful and patient with our two kids, particularly our 3 year old as the days could be quite long for the little ones. We found Yuki on Triplelights and we could not have been happier with another guide. Yuki was professional , punctual and very friendly. Yuki was very good and keeping us updated on his travel itine... read more

“ Discovering Tokyo and Kyoto ”

Yuki was an excellent guide for my whirlwind discovery of life and places in Tokyo and Kyoto Japan. My journey started with Yuki in Tokyo where we visited several locations introducing me to life past and present in Tokyo. He also gave me an exposure to the vast transportation system in Tokyo. I feel that I can now do more discoveries when I again visit Tokyo. Yuki and I started our Kyoto journey by riding the bullet train from Tokyo Station to Kyoto. This ride gave me a quick view of urban and rural Japan. Once in Kyoto Yuki took me on a path of discovery. We explored many examples of the Edo period of Japans history. Temples, castles, gardens and forests along with several unique culinary delights made the two days in Kyoto memorable. The hotel in Kyoto with an onsen bath was greatly ... read more

“ A dream became true with Yuki ”

We wanted to visit Nissan Heritage Collection in Zama, because I‘m a big fan of all the cars from Nissan and its history. It requires an interpreter to visit the museum if you don‘t speak Japanese, so I contacted Yuki about this special tour. I told Yuki what we wanted and he organized everything. He contacted the museum, booked the tour and sent me the schedule. I told Yuki that this is OK and confirmed the tour. One week before the tour Yuki contacted me and told me where he will wait for us. On the day of the tour he called us in our hotel room when he arrived in our hotel and picked us up. At first we went in a traditional inconspicuous restaurant, where we had the best and lunch we’ve had the last two weeks here in Japan, and that for little money. After the lunch we conti... read more

“ Value for Money; Everything we Expected ”

Yuki helped us tailor a time and interest appropriate agenda; he reconfirmed our arrangements and kept us well informed in terms of meeting logistics. On the day of our private tour he arrived early to greet us and had planned all the transportation details, which included local trains, subways, and walking. We had agreed on visiting the Tokyo National Museum, where he skillfully guided us to see the the highlights of their collection. His knowledge of Japanese art and culture was very helpful in enhancing our experience. We then visited the fish market where we had requested a sushi lunch. He took us to an untouristy place where we thoroughly enjoyed a unique and excellent culinary adventure. We then went across town to visit a garden, which while a peaceful was less exciting than the... read more

Yuki provided an excellent experience in touring Kamakura and it's surrounding vicinity. From his knowledge and personal experience as a tour guide, he provided me with great insight about the history and cultural aspect of the area. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others interested in touring this wonderful area just outside of Tokyo.

“ A Day in Nikko ”

This is my second review, but Yuki was so great I'm happy to write another! He was very professional right from the start with his e-mails, proposed itineraries and up-front fee schedule. We enjoyed chatting with him about life in modern Japan and hearing him expand on the historical aspects of Nikko's sites. He was down to earth and considerate of my limited mobility. He was punctual, thoughtful and his English was more than adequate. We got to enjoy Nikko in a very special way, thanks to Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Collin, Thank you for writing a good review of my tour. Everything went well in the tour. We omitted the grave of Toshogu shrine to avoid too much stairs but it was good. Best regards, Yuki

It was an interesting tour of the Imperial Palace. Yuki was able to explain clearly the various buildings/structures within the compound. One thing that stood of most, for me, was even though my group missed our allocated slot for the special tour, Yuki was so kind as to reschedule the tour to the following day. I really appreciate him going the extra mile.

Yuki was very punctual, Informative, and wonderful to spend a day with in Kamakura. This was my first visit to Japan and to have someone for at least a day by our side showing us around was more than just a tour but great exposure to how things worked. Taught us about the shrines and temples as there is an etiquette that you need to know that brings life and respect to the places you visit as we would be visiting a lot during our week. Great to start with someone who knows first hand. Yuki has a clear English skills and very easy to speak with. Such a well spent and wonderful day.

I am looking forward to my next 3 days with him. He is like a miracle worker and I feel very fortunate to have him as my guide! He is really a great tour guide. I’ve had many tour guides with all of my travels. He is very knowledgeable, flexible, accommodating to change in plans due to weather conditions, and overall outstanding. I really enjoyed his company for the 4 Days (2 Days in Tokyo, Kamakura and Yokohama). Thanks Yuki! I'll be recommending you to others!

“ We were very grateful to have Yuki as our guide! ”

Yuki did an excellent job guiding us through the one day "Hakone Memories" trip, starting from meeting us right in our lobby all the way to getting us back at the end of the day. Yuki was consistently knowledgeable about navigating the sometimes complicated travel conveyances. He adjusted our agenda based on weather and our preferences. When some members of our party used their IC Card instead of the Hakone Free Pass ticket at some of the ticket turnstiles, causing the IC Cards to be set to an error state, Yuki got everything straightened out. He made the whole experience seamless and carefree. We even got a momentary view of Mt. Fuji from the Shinkansen, despite most of the day being overcast. We were very thankful to have Yuki as our guide!

Dear Dan, Thank you for taking my tour of Hakone. It was a good tour although we can not see Mt. Fuji very well. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki

“ Historical Tour of Yokohama ”

I spent two separate half-days with Yuki as my guide in Yokohama. I requested a historical walking tour of Yokohama, which was not previously a set tour, but which Yuki took the time to research and design just for me. He went the extra mile to create easy to understand slides for me on his iPad that he would reveal at key locations and moments, which helped me more easily understand the history of Yokohama in particular, as well as the broader history of Japan. I recommend Yuki to anyone who wants to learn more about Yokohama's history (especially from the 1850's opening to foreign trade until the present), while visiting interesting sightseeing spots and historically important locations in the city.

Yuki:

Dear Jesssica, Thank you for taking my tours and write a nice review with complements. You gave me the change to learn deeper on the history of Yokohama. Based on this opportunity, I can improve my tour for those being interested in Japanese history and related sightseeing spots in Yokohama. I hope you will enjoy your stay in Japan.

“ Great day in Kyoto ”

Our day in Kyoto is exactly what we were hoping for! We loved getting to experience the Shinkansen which was a great way to get to Kyoto and back. The three sights we saw in Kyoto were fascinating. Yuki provided us with great history and information as we visited the areas. Lunch was a particular highlight. Delicious and unique Kyoto cuisine. We also appreciated Yuki making special arrangements for a taxi to help us get out of the heat on such a hot day. Great way to see the highlights of Kyoto in one day.

Yuki:

Dear Karen, Thank you for taking my tour and write such a nice review on the same day. The Shinkansen makes this tour possible, but I try to make you feel comfortable with the pace.

“ Yuki was the best! ”

We went to Mount Fuji with Yuki last week, and we are so glad we chose him as our guide! Before the trip, we messaged back and forth about the cost of bus vs. train, and Yuki did all of the research to let us know which would be more cost effective. Our hotel was in the Okubo area (not where most easy-to-get-to Shinjuku hotels are), and he willingly met us in the hotel lobby on the morning of the tour. Yuki led the way as soon as we met him. Japan's train/bus stations could get confusing at times, so it was nice to have someone who confidently got us to where we needed to be. Once we got to the Mount Fuji area, Yuki noticed that the clouds were blocking the view of the mountain, and suggested an alternative to what we had planned that day so that we would be able to see it. We drov... read more

Dear Michele, Thank you for taking my tour to Lake Kawaguchi and write such an intensive review. The weather was unpredictable on the day so I did my best to provide you the best tour of mine.

“ ok guide for tokyo ”

we did a day tour of tokyo with him from our cruise port yokohama, he was ok as he showed us many places on subway, but he never explained much to us about japan or places we saw, moreover he asked us to pay 1 hour extra fees which paid despite of finishing our tour 2 hours early as our free shuttle bus from yokohama railway station to cruise port was at 21:30 (not his fault). in short he was ok.

Yuki:

Dear Puneet, I guided you from 13:30 to 21:30 for 8 hours, which is one hour longer than my regular time duration of 7 hours. So, you didn't lose anything on the day. Instead, you should pay me the extra charge for the 6th person which you didn't mention when you booked me. I asked you the extra charge during the tour. At the moment, I trusted your word and charged you online which you have not paid yet. It was a busy tour so I limited explanation to important ones such as Sakurada-Mon Gate, Main Gate of the Palace, and the origin of Senso-Ji Temple all of which you seems to forget. You spent more time for shopping and eating at Ginza and Takeshita street. You should have asked me if you want to know anything more. Best regards, Yuki

“ Fabulous guide ”

Yuki is everything that I had hoped for in a guide. Punctual, polite, excellent English and more than happy to modify the tour to our needs. Our day with him was filled with great memories, excellent information, and very effective use of transport options. Yuki seems to be able to move as fast or as slow as you wish and is very attentive to the group. We enjoyed both the "Must See" Tokyo, and Lake Hakone tours, the latter using Shinkansen in both directions. Wow! what an experience. I can thoroughly recommend Yuki as a guide for all of the above reasons, plus great value for the investment.

Yuki:

Dear Lindsay, Thank you for taking my tours for two days and write such an elaborate review during your tour. I am very much impressed with your detailed planning when you made the previous booking with JR pass. It was very unfortunate that you couldn't see Mt Fuji but you seemed to enjoy what you have rather that what you don't have. I hope you can see Mt. Fuji during your stay. Please give my best regards to other members, too. Yuki

Dear Jean, Thank you for your review of my tour. Everything went well and I am glad you enjoyed it. The route you asked me was new to me, but it found out to be feasible one. The web booking system of the bullet train worked very well, too. Best regards, Yuki

“ Mount fuji ”

Good. Yuki is considerate (looking for elevators aside from escalators) since we were 2 senior couples finding it difficult to walk fast and not used to long walks inside the complicated railways.

Yuki:

Dear Lourds, Thank you for taking my tours for three days. I hope you enjoyed traveling Japan. Sorry for missing Mt. Fuji, I tried my best to let you see it. We had a great view of the mountain next day. Please give my best regards to your husband and friends. Best regards, Yuki

“ Highly Recommended ”

A very informative, relaxed and delicious tour! I plan to recommend this tour next year to my friends who will be coming to Tokyo from Cape Town.

Yuki:

Dear Mickey, Thank you for writing a review of my Tsukiji tour. Food is an important part of my tour. Tsukiji is my favorite place to taste not only Sushi but many other Japanese foods. I am impressed with your way of life. Best regards, Yuki

“ one day in Tokyo ”

had one day off a cruise to see all I can in Tokyo. Mr. Yuki did a great job of accomlishing the entire itiiery that I planned !!!! it was a long day with a lot of walking and it was a GREAT day. Mr. yuki went above the call of duty and modified as we went along. Would highly recommen.

Yuki:

Dear David, Thank you for your nice review of my tour. It was a long day for me too, but everything went well. Some of my guests get tired of walking during 7 hours of my regular tour, but you took it for 11 hours. I was surprised that you bought so many Japanese kitchen knives at Tower Knife after trial cuts of a carrot and tomato. I took you many knife shops in Tsukiji, but I found that the shop at Tokyo Skytree is the best place. Best regards, Yuki

“ Two memorable days with Yuki ”

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. My husband is a geologist, and the addition of the Kiyosumi Garden (which has a collection of boulders collected from around Japan) was a special treat. While I am n... read more

Yuki:

Dear Dr. and Mrs. Collines, Thank you for writing such a detailed and elaborate review of my tours. It was my great pleasure to guide such a good couple like you. It was very good that you took my tour for two days so that I can take you my favorite Japanese Gardens. I am very glad to know that you enjoyed the lunch, as food is an important part of my tour. I can guide you Kamakura and Hakone if you come again. Thank you for taking my tour, Yuki
