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. My wife was not the easiest to walk around with as she walks with a cane and Yuki was understanding and patient. I used my time to ask him about various things even unrelated to the tour and he was super h... read more
Dear Steven, Thank you for taking my tour. Kamakura is my favorite place with many old temples and shrines and not so crowded compared with other sightseeing spots. I am glad you made your trip to Kyoto just after the Typhoon 15 hit Tokyo area with serious distraction. Best regards, Yuki
we had a great day with yuki . he helped us master the subways, conquer culinary conundrums and gave us the confidence we need to take it from here . thanks yuki - a lovely day !
Dear Paul, Thank you for taking my Tokyo tour. I was my great pleasure to help you to enjoy our country. I will study more to help those who come to Japan for the Rugby World Cup. Best regards, Yuki
My wife and I decided to take a Tokyo tour on our first day in Tokyo and we are so lucky to have selected Yuki. Yuki was very knowledgeable and friendly. We both learned so mich more than we would have if we tried to take the tours on our own we highly recommend him.
Dear John, Thank you for taking my tour. We walked a lot, but you are not too tired. Tsukiji is my favorite place for sushi lunch. Please enjoy your long stay in Japan. Yuki
Yuki is very professional, friendly, punctual, and efficient in guiding us to the destinations on his tour. He explained enthusiastically about the Buddhist beliefs, the many temples & Buddhas at Kamakura. He is highly recommended as a tour guide!!
Dear Clifford, Thank you for taking my tour. Kamakura is my favorite place with many old temples. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki is a total treasure!!!! He took us to the very best places, Meiji Temple, the Imperial Palace Garden and The Senso Shrine, customized to our needs and pace. We even had time to stop and enjoy a wonderful gin fizz at the Palace Hotel, and a delicious tempura lunch at one of his favorite local spots. Yuki is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Japanese history - such a lovely experience I shall never forget. Thank you so much, Yuki, for sharing your day and your culture with us!!! The Gutierrez from Miami, Fl USA
Dear Maridel, Thank you for taking my tour of Tokyo. I have picked up several guests at Palace Hotel but I have never entered the Bar at the hotel. It was a very unique tour, but it was a very good experience for me, too. I hope you will come back to Japan in a different season. Best regards, Yuki
Thank you Yuki for your wonderful day of guiding us through some great attractions in Tokyo. We truly appreciated your personal, sensitive and informative attention to our requests, and would highly recommend you to anyone needing a guide in Tokyo.
Dear Ross, Thank you for taking my tour. I am very happy to know you have enjoyed my tour. Best regards, Yuki
This was my first day touring in Tokyo with Yuki. I have 3 more consecutive days coming! Yuki is a great guide! Very knowledgeable and very attentive to everything. 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!
Dear Loretta, Thank you for taking my tours for four days. I will do my best to make them as comfortable and interesting as possible for you. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki went above and beyond and organised a traditional tea ceremony in which I participated whilst wearing a traditional Yukata. I specifically wanted to do this and he arranged it all for me. He was an amazing tour guide taking me to all the places I wanted to see. I highly recommend Yuki!
Dear Fergil, Thank you taking my tour. The tea ceremony is my favorite, but they don't offer it to one person so I joined it. You looked nice with your Kimono! Best regards, Yuki
Yuki knows Tōkyō inside out. He was very accommodating and changed the itinerary at our request on the fly. I highly recommend him. He guided my daughter and I for 2 days.
Dear Joseph, Thank you for taking my tour for two days. The weather was strange but we took the advantage to visit new places. Thank you for accompanying me to the observatory and the Digital Art Museum. Best regards, Yuki
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
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.
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. Best regards, Yuki
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.
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. It is my great pleasure to take you my favorite restaurant of Kyoto cuisine at Ponto-Cho. Please give my best regards to your family and mother. Yuki
I searched many travel sites and this was the only option for seeing what I wanted to see during a 1 day trip to Kyoto from Tokyo. Yuri was a very knowledgeable and personable guide. He explained the history and traditions behind all the sites we visited. We enjoyed our day very much. Kyoto is beautiful.
Dear Brian, Thank you for taking my tour and write a nice review. It is a hard tour but I am very happy to know you have enjoyed it. Best regards, Yuki
My husband and I spent the day with Yuki touring Kamakura. We had a great time with Yuki. He was so know knowledgeable of the area and was so patient with us as we continually stopped to shop and eat (he took us to a great local restaurant too). We had such a great day, one we will remember for a long time. I highly recommend using Yuki and his English was great!
Dear Mindy, Thank you for taking my tour and the review with the rating. Those are my favorite places in Kamakura. I planned to take you a papa & mama restaurant, but I am very glad you liked the other one good with Domburi. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki-San was very knowledgeable in Japanese history and culture, and his English was excellent! In spite of the rain, he planned the day to ensure we got to experience each of our desired destinations. He was very considerate of seniors in our group, always using escalators/elevators when available and attending to their needs.
Dear Caren, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review. Sorry for the poor weather, but you are lucky to observe the wedding at Meiji Shrine. Please give my best regards to your family and relatives. Yuki
He came to pick us up from our hotel, which was very convenient. At the palace, he provided all the informatiom we needed, even showed us slides. After the tour, he suggested a great local restaurant.
Dear Robert, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review. We are now in the rainy season, but the weather was very comfortable without any rain. I enjoyed my lunch at the same restaurant. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki
Yuki was knowledgeable but at the same time flexible to respond to your personal interest. His energy, professionalism and courtesy were all great assets. I recommend Yuki to all visitors in Japan.
Dear Loc, Thank you for taking my tour and write such a nice review. We went to Lake Kawaguchi to see Mt. Fuji in a cloudy day. You were so luck to take a glance of the mountain in such a poor condition. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki was great! He was so patient with us and all our many questions. He not only took us on the guided tour but also went out of his way to give us tips on how to easily navigate our way around Tokyo, and more!
Dear Patricia, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review so soon. It was a rainy day, but better than the hot summer days. I am glad that we made the special tour of the Imperial Palace. Please enjoy your stay and foods in Japan. Tower knife on the 4th floor of Soramachi shopping center next to Tokyo Sky Tree is the best place to buy Japanese knives. Best regards, Yuki
Travelled from Tokyo to Kyoto and back with Yuki. Yuki picked us up on time and diligently had prepared all matters for our trip - trains , taxis, lunch and what meals to have , he was extremely friendly and spoke excellent English and knowledgeable of all aspects of Kyoto. We toured the famous sites of Kyoto and had a wonderful time shopping and eating in the areas as well. AAA+ service 👍🏼‼️
Dear Steve, Thank you for taking my tour and write a review with the highest rating. It was very hot in Kyoto on the day so we skipped several places, but I feel happy that your family enjoyed the Shinkansen and delicious foods. My tour is flexible to adjust what you feel comfortable. Thank you for providing me the green seat of the Shrinkansen, it was nice. Yuki
If you need a private guide tour, then Yuki is the best choice for it. He knows lots of from Japan's history and he gave a perfect Imperial Palace for us and he escorted us to the Tokyo Station at the end of the tour. I can 100% recommend his guide for everybody.
Dear Daniel, Thank you for taking my tour and writing the review with the highest rating. I hope my tour is useful for your travel in Japan. Best regards, Yuki
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. It was fortunate for us to see Mt. Fuji on a cloudy day. We planed to visit the Koreito Pagoda to see Mt. Fuji but the clouds blocked Mt. Fuji in the direction so I asked the taxi driver to take us to the west where we found the great view of Mt. Fuji. The DVD we watched at the Kimono Museum was very educational. By all means, it was a good experience for me too. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki is so knowledgeable and Friendly Always informative and the use of the iPad to show us maps was great. Can’t wait for our next tour with him
Dear Bob, Thank you for taking my tours and write the review before the second tour of Kamakura. You are very friendly persons with good manner. See you tomorrow! Yuki
My father and I were in Yokohama for a cruise. Since neither of us had been to Japan and neither speak or read Japanese, we decided to hire a guide in order to maximize our time. Yuki turned out to be the perfect choice. My father cannot walk long distances or climb stairs so Yuki took that into consideration when planning our day. He is pleasant to be with and was a pleasure to talk to. His knowledge of Yokohama is extensive and he went out of his way to make our day enjoyable. You will not regret booking a tour with him!
Dear Carol, Thank you for taking my tour and write the review with the highest rating. Your father has a marvelous personality. It was my privilege to spend a day with such a person. Sankei-En was the perfect place for us. Please give my best regards to Mr. Happy. Yuki
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.
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
Touring with Yuki made our trip to Hakone perfect! He made the entire trip seamless. He was really good at figuring out which of Hakone’s highlights would appeal to my husband and I. He also gave us a great overview of different types of Japanese food we may have otherwise missed. If we find ourselves in Japan again we would definitely book another tour with Yuki!
Yuki was an exceptional guide for our 3 days in Tokyo. He is flexible, patient, knowledgeable and is happy to do both serious and fun things. We went to art galleries, the Imperial palace, various gardens and markets and even the Kawaii Monster cafe! He accommodated our dietary requirements and variations on the agreed itinerary. Yuki has a good sense of humour and speaks English very well. He also took lovely photos of us during the tours. We highly reccommend Yuki as a guide in Tokyo!
Dear Annie, Thank you for taking my tours and write such a good review with the highest rating. I have never been to Yamatane Museum nor Aoyama Squar before you asked me, but they are great places for foreign visitors with a sophisticated taste of Japan. Best regards, Yuki
We were a group of 4 girls traveling from the US and none of us had visited Japan before. Yuki spoke great English, helped us get our subway passes and JR pass and was a great tour guide for the day. He was also very flexible and took us to see a garden we had not originally planned. We enjoyed our day with Yuki and highly recommend him!
Dear Ashley, Thank you for taking my tour and write a nice review with the highest rating. I was very happy to guide such lovely girls with good manner. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki was great to spend the day with He was very knowledgeable knew his way around very accommodating when we had to change places we wanted to see
Dear Douglas, Thank you for taking my tour of Tokyo. It was a pleasant day and we are very lucky to see weddings in Meiji-Jingu Shrine and Sanshasai Festival in Asakusa. Please enjoy your stay in Japan. Yuki
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.
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
Yuki was very professional,friendly and patient with use Senior Canadian with mobility problems. We did manage with his guidance to negotiate the Buses Subways and Trains in Beautiful Yokohama. He took us to traditionalist Japanese Restaurants for lunch and the Japanese Tea Ceremony which was delightful. Added bonus he was a table Tennis Player and did arrange for 2 of us with him have a game in a private Club. Thanks Yuki for a great time Time. Ping Pong, Paul Martin
Dear Paul, Thank you for taking my tours of Yokohama and Kamakura. It was a wonderful time for me to guide your group my favorite places, too, and the fist time to play table tennis with my guests. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki responded immediately to all my communication. He was waiting at the pier for us. I chose the three recommended sites to see ahead of time. Yuki efficiently got us from site to site using public transportation. The other couple with us were able to use public transportation the next day with Yuki's suggestions. We were not as brave. Yuki used an ipad to help explain the places we visited. If you choose Yuki as your guide, you will be very pleased.
Dear Cynthia, Thank you for taking my tour and writing a review. We visited the most popular places in Tokyo during the Golden Week but it was not so crowded. Please give my best regards to other members, too. Yuki
My friends and I never regret getting the service of Mr. Yuki, especially for a first timer in Japan. He attended to all my inquiry prior to booking. Truly a flexible and customize tour because he ask what's our point of interest and brought us there even though it's not on our itinerary. He teach us also how to ride and getting in and out of subways. Thank you very much Mr. Yuki, because of you we had the best memorable experienced in Hakone. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED EXCELLENT, and PROFESSIONAL SERVICE. I will definitely get his service when I go back again to JAPAN. From, PHILLIPINES
Dear Ana, Thank you for taking two tours of mine and writing such an impressive review. I knew you and your friends like foods and flowers so I tried to add more places for your interests in Tokyo and Hakone. It was a great pleasure for me to guide your group. Please enjoy staying Japan and come back in different seasons. Best regards, Yuki
5* service highly recommend
Dear James, Thank you for taking my tour and writing a review with highest rating. Best regards, Yuki
He had prepared some of the things that I had asked him I wanted to do which was great.
Dear Ligita, Thank you for taking my tour and writing a review. We went Tsukiji Outer Market during the Golden Week so that it was very very crowded. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki was very knowledgeable of Japan history and he had many good pictures on his iPad to explain the background of what we were seeing better. He worked well with my two young kids and was able to adjust the itinerary during the day to ensure we saw as many things at our own pace. He also took us to his favorite sushi place in Tsujiki Market which was a highlight for us!
Dear Gerald, Thank you for taking my tour and write a nice review of my tour. I have never heard any complaints for the Sushi restaurant I took your family. Please give my best regards to your family, too. Yuki
In general we are very satisfied with Yuki's guidance for the Kamakura trip.
Dear Sianne, Thank you for taking my tour to Kamakura and writing a review with good rating. It was difficult for me to guide eight people with different paces. Best regards, Yuki
Dear John, Thank you for taking my tour and writing a review. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki is a fine gentleman and very knowledgeable tour guide (his English is excellent) who was able to adjust and tailor our day just as we wanted (even with last minute changes!). He was very helpful and for us the highlight was touring the Imperial Palace and also his amazing suggestion of a great sushi spot in Tsukiji. We avoided some of the busy areas for more traditional under-the-radar areas and got to take in the most of the culture. Yuki was a star and even helped take photos of us on our day. Hopefully he visits London sometime! Thank you Yuki!
Dear Alex, Thank you for taking my tour and the nice view of my Tokyo tour. My tour is very flexible for adjusting to the interests of my guests. The Sushi restaurant is different from other places in Tsukiji． I’m glad you and Kim liked it. Enjoy your stay in Japan Yuki
Yuki was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations!
Dear Yen, Thank you for writing a review of my tour to Hakone. It was unfortunate that you couldn't see Mt. Fuji but there are nice places such as Lake Ashi and the Open Air Museum. I hope you saw Mt. Fuji during your stay. Best regards, Yuki
We enjoyed our short tour with Yuki very much. He was very knowledgeable with the area and even with our other inquiries not related to the tour.
Dear Karen, Thank you for writing your review of my tour. It was nice weather and we saw lots of flowers blooming there. Thank you for taking my tour. I hope your children get well soon. Yuki
Our experience with Yuki was amazing: he knows perfectly the area and how to move fast there to visit everything in a day without missing any great spot. He proposed us a great tour and we asked him to include a particular Onsen we’d love to see: he included it and was a fantastic experience, having a Hot spring water bath looking to Mount Fuji; it was a memorable day that couldn’t be possible without his knowledge and experience. He even accompanied us to the entry of Chinatown for having dinner after the tour! Yuki is a great professional and a great person too. We’ll always remember this day in Hakone, thanks for everything, Yuki!!!!
Dear Antonio, Thank you for your review of my tour so soon. It was a good experience to have the outdoor bath with you. I will include the bath into my tour. Please give my best regard to your family, too. Yuki
My wife and I had a great two days with Yuki. We we were in Tokyo prior to a cruise and group tour. Since it was our first time in Japan Yuki showed us how to use the subways, took us around to many places we would not see on our group tour and took us to some very good restaurants. He adapted the itinerary to what we wanted to do. He picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off there each day. We would highly recommend using his services.
Dear Chris, Thank you for your nice review oft tour. Since you booked two days, I arranged our tour according to the weather and your interests. Please give my best regards to your wife Hellen, too. Yuki
Yuki was a great person to have as a guide. He loves what he does and has a professional approach to planning your tour. Yuki helped us to better understand Japanese food and culture as well as Tokyo metro. Yuki, Jenny Hope's you enjoyed the deep fried donuts with your coffee.
Dear John, Thank you for writing a review so soon with good rating. You and your wife are such nice persons to guide. Sorry about the very cold weather and missing eels. I hope you can try many Japanese foods during your stay. Thank you for "Karinto". Best regards, Yuki
My family of 4 had a great time in Japan. Thanks to Yuki! He planned the days out very well. We were so lucky getting to see beautiful cherry blossom. My kids love him! I love Yuki’s presentation he created on iPad with pictures so my kids can relate the stories to.
Dear Taylor, Thank you for the review and taking my tour for six days. These were very unique tours for me, too. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki
Yuki was very helpful and informative. He has an excellent knowledge of Tokyo and it’s history. Yuki’s English is very good.
Dear Lindy, Thank you for giving me a good rating. I hope you have a good time in Japan and meet you in Yokohama again. Please give my best regards to Neil, too. Yuki
Kamakura is about an hour from Tokyo by train and makes for a great day trip. If you are interested in shrines, temples, and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, I highly recommend Yuki's tour. We had a fantastic time, from pickup to drop off we were well taken care of. I'm so happy I opted for a private tour over a group bus tour. Yuki tailored the day to our interests. He is well informed and shared the history of Kamakura, proper etiquette when visiting these sacred grounds, as well as other helpful tidbits such as how to use Tokyo's train system (invaluable). We booked an extra hour in order to visit 4 sites - Kencho-Ji Temple, Hokoku-Ji Temple, Big Buddha, and Hasedera Temple, plus we had time for a nice leisurely lunch at a beautiful, authentic Japanese restaurant,... read more
Dear Annete, Thank you for your review of my tour. Kamakura is my favorite place and I am glad you like it. We can practice Zen meditation at Kencho-Ji temple. Please give my best regards to your husband, too Yuki
Yuki was a very knowleadgeable guide for Kamakura experience, in particular on Japanese history and he told me a lot about Shinto and Buddhism difference of practice. I would definitively reccommend Yuki for this visit, it was a very enjoyable day.
Dear Mara, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. Kamakura is my favorite place. I am very happy that you enjoyed my tour. Best regards. Yuki
Yuki was so knowledgeable and had so much insight on our tour. Yuki also helped us learn and use the subway so we were able to spend the next few days navigating the city on our own! Would definitely recommend Yuki!!!
Dear Amanda, Thank you for writing the good review of my tour. It was a cold day, but not too cold to walk around. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed my tour. Please give my best regards to Cole and Sara. Yuki
We had a day long tour with Yuki on the first day of our holidays. It was excellent. We found Yuki to be extremely informative and interesting. We really appreciated the way he explained things and personalised the tour to our tastes. We visited Meiji Shrine, Tsukiji market, Hama-Rykyu Gardens, took a boat trip and ended the day at Sensoji Temple. In addition Yuki brought us to an amazing sushi restaurant for lunch. The food was delicious and there is no way we could have found it on our own. All in all this was a fantastic first day of our holiday and we would have no hesitation in recommending a trip with Yuki to other tourists with similar interests to our own (Japanese history, culture, food).
Dear Gillian, Thank you for the nice review of my tour. It was my great pleasure to guide your party and explain the historical background of each place. I hope my tour helps you to make your tour more interesting and fruitful. Please give my best regards to Cathal, too. Yuki
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.
Dear Lauren, Thank you for your review of my tour. I feel very happy to know that you enjoyed my tour. Best regards, Yuki
I can’t say enough good thing about Yuki. He was just excellent all around. Punctual, Happy, Helpful with Transportation and Good Company. We are Family of four with 2 small kids from USA and they were calling him Uncle Yuki by end of tour. We could enjoy Japan with out any hassle. Good explanation of temple history and He even recommended a nice family restaurant for us that evening. Thank you so Much !! Stacy and Family
Dear Stacy, Thank you for writing the review of my Tokyo tour so soon. I am very happy to know that you and your family enjoyed my tour. Please give my best regards to your family, too. Best regards, Yuki
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.
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
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
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. Yuki
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. Based on this great experience, I made a two day door to door tour from Tokyo to Kyoto. Please give my best regards, to your family, too. Yuki
Yuki was an amazing tour guide. He was punctual and very knowledgeable but not overwhelming. He showed us how to use public transportation and delivered everything we agreed upon. He is super nice and kind. I definitely recommend him. Thank you Yuki
Dear Kimberley, Thank you for writing a nice review. We enjoyed good food such as Tempura and Sushi, too. Best regards, Yuki
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. He kindly greeted us at our hotel in Yokohama despite a little snow and used public transport to and in Kamakura to save time. We visited the the great Buddha of Kamakura known for his Handsome Face, Hasedera temple from where you can also have a view over Kamakura city and the ocean, Hokokuji temple with the highlight of enjoying green tea in the peaceful, serene Bamboo forest, Hachimangu shrine where a wedding was taking place looked magical in the snow. He also took us to a local restaurant for a delicious home cooked meal with vegetarian choices and as a surprise took us to try out local sweet desserts. We re... read more
Dear Pushpa, Thank you for writing such a nice and detailed review of my tour. Kamakura is my favorite place to visit as it is not so crowded and easy to go from Tokyo. Please give my best regards to your colleagues, too. 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.
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
Our family enjoyed a Wonderful action packed day touring Tokyo with Yuki. Many many highlights!!! Yuki is an excellent guide - I Highly recommend!! Susan M
Dear Susan, Thank you for writing a review so soon! It was a busy day, but I am glad to know you have enjoyed it. See you tomorrow. 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!
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
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
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
Great guide who did all he could to show us this beautiful city under less than optimal conditions. He was keenly aware of how tired we were after traveling the day before from the US.
Dear Neal, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. I was glad that your wife could eat Udon without soup. Best regards, Yuki
Thank you for the last minute changes you made to our itinerary in order to ensure our 3 yr old enjoyed the tour as much we did! The photos from all of our stops are beautiful. We had a wonderful time and we really appreciate your help in getting around town stress free. Lunch was also delicious- thank you for the recommendation!
Dear Lalaine, Thank you for the review. I was very glad to see your daughter became happy at the toy street near Tokyo station. I want everyone to be happy during my tour and enjoy good foods to make good memories of Japan. Best regards, 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.
Dear Fiona, Thank you for writing a good review of my tour. It is always my pleasure to help my guests to their stay in Japan. Please give my best regards to your husband, too Yuki
Yuki was a great guide. Not only was he great in helping us sort out our IC cards he also had great explanations for every place we visited coupled with a presentation and pictures of historical figured. Overall he is a very friendly, charismatic and smart guide. I would recomend him to any friends visiting Tokyo.
Dear Johan, Thank you for writing a good review of my tour. I was happy that you listened to my explanation of each sights. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki
We appreciate the tour and services provided by Yuki. Yuki is absolutely a well organized and excellent tour guide. The experience we had was amazing and wonderful. Thank you so much for helping us out with the arrangements from Tokyo to Kyoto. Should we ever return to Tokyo we will definitely plan our next tour with Yuki again .
Dear Winnie, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am very happy to know that you have enjoyed it. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki
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.
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
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
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!
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
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.
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
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. Thanks again to Yuki, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for a grea... read more
Dear Grant, Thank you so much for writing such a generous review of my tour. I was very happy when you and your family listened to my explanation of the history and culture of our country. I hope those kinds of information make your trip to Kyoto and Nara more interesting. Please give my best regards to your family, too. Yuki
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. It was great to get all the history, stories and there is no question about Japan that he couldn’t answer. We had a great two days in kamakura and Kyoto and would definitely use Yuki again if we come back.
Dear Tina, Thank you for writing such a nice review of my tours so soon! I am very happy to know you and your family enjoyed the tour. Thank you for your patience, as it was very crowded on our return trip from Kamakura by a minivan and on our way to Kyoto by the Shinkansen. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki is an excellent guide and very flexible and accommodating. We were not certain about our plans, but Yuki reserved time for us even before booking giving the opportunity to finalize our itinerary. He also helped us to decide on the attractions to visit during 1st day in the city, and gave a lot of tips on how to get to other spots we are planning to visit on our own. This is definitely the way to go if it's your 1st time in Tokyo, and you want to learn more about culture and history of the places you visit. Highly recommend, and will definitely get in touch when we plan our next trip. Thank you, Yuki!
Dear Elena, Thank you very much to write a review so soon! It was a very comfortable tour with nice guest and weather. Please enjoy your stay in Kyoto and give my best regards to your family. Yuki
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. He was kind and patience with us since we only had one day to spend in Kyoto. We could not have asked for a better experience. He was very knowledgeable and thorough with the sights went to. Cannot wait to come back and have him guide us again on different tour.
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
We had a lovely day with Yuki, he was both knowledgable and very professional. We walked for miles and saw so much. He also took us to a very nice restaurant for lunch. Highly recommend him
Dear Carol, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am very glad you enjoyed my tour. Good food is an important part of my tour. Please give my best regards to your husband and friends. Yuki
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.
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
My wife and I spent the day with Yuki and had a great time seeing the Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine, and Samurai Museum.
Dear Nicholas, Thank you for your review. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my tours. Please give my best regards to your wife, too. Yuki
Yuki is very kind and helpful. He also takes time to explain the history of the tourist spots in Tokyo. My family and I were very happy with Yuki's services.
Dear Ruby, Thank you for writing the review so soon. Please enjoy Kyoto and meet you on Nov. 8th for Hakone tour. Yuki
Excellent knowledgable guide. All you want in a guide and more with Yuki. John Mc Donnell Bray Ireland
Dear John, Thank you for your review of my tour. You are such nice persons. I enjoyed guiding you. Best regards, Yuki
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
Excellent tour provided by Yuki. He's quite flexible about customizing the plans according to how things go. He took us to his favourite ramen restaurant which was so delicious.
Dear Manuel, Thank you for your review. The ramen restaurant is the most favorite of mine. Food is a very important part of my tour. Best regards, Yuki
Mr Yuki is an excellent guide. I had a wonderful day originating in Tokyo and arriving in Hakone and touring the area. He was very polite and knowledgeable about the area and was happy to answer all the questions I had. Highly recommend a trip with Mr Yuki!
Dear Grace, Thank you for writing a review of my tour so soon. It was my pleasure to guide you around many of my favorite places. I was impressed with your challenging mind. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki was an excellent guide! We really enjoyed his services. The first time in Tokyo you certainly need someone experienced to guide your way around. Highly recommended!
Dear Anna, Thank you for your review. I am very glad to know you liked my tour. Food is a very important part of my tour. Please give my best regards to your friend. Yuki
Yuki was a great guide. It was really nice to have a personal guide, who gave us many options on how we wanted our day to go. He was right on time to start the day, and the day had a good pace. His english was very good, and he brought us to a great place for lunch. I would definitely use him again when we travel back to Tokyo.
Dear David, Thank you for writing nice review of my tour and highest evaluation. I am very glad to know you enjoyed my tour. Please come again! Yuki
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.
Dear Puja, Thank you for your review. Sorry for the poor weather, but I did my best for your tour. Best regards, Yuki
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!
Dear Carol, Thank you for writing such a nice review of my tour. I think it’s a challenge to find a place where my guest asked. I know Japanese knives are very sharpe but Tower Knife is the place to buy them. Best regards, Yuki
THE TOUR WAS EXCELLENT WE ENJOYD IT VERY MUCH THANKS
Dear Ilan, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I am glad to know you have enjoyed my tour. Best regards, 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. There is a special tour to view the Palace from outside, but you were not interested in it when I asked about it. I will improve my tour to avoid such complaints. Best regards, Yuki
Spent 1 whole day with Yuki. Saw a lot of Tokyo. Very nice man. English proficient enough to understand, as he has spent time in the U. S. I liked Tokyo better than I thought I would. I would recommend him to any US citizens coming to Tokyo.
Dear Don, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. It was a very fine day and I am glad you enjoyed Tokyo. Tsukiji, Meiji-Jingu Shrine, and Asakusa are the most popular places and I tried to make it more interesting to give you some important information of these places as well as our religions. I am looking forward to seeing you again in my tour. Yuki
We were a group of four. Yuki was very accommodating both through the planning process of our visit and throughout the day. He arrived at our hotel on time and proficiently guided us to all of our agreed destinations providing us with informative commentary and competently answering our questions including other ideas of destinations/ attractions in other cities are visiting. He took us to a beautiful restaurant for lunch and ensured that all of our requests were met throughout the day. We highly recommend you booking Yuki for your tour of Tokyo or any of the other destinations he offers.
Dear Margaret, Thank you for your review. I am glad you liked the Japanese restaurant at Harajuku. Food is very important for my tour and you have a nice taste of Japanese food. Please try other foods during your travel. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki put together a very nice Tokyo itinerary incorporating the 3 places I indicated to him that I woulf like to visit. He was very prompt, organized, knowledgeable, and personable. I highly recommend him as a guide.
Dear Mariclaire, Thank you for writing the review of my tour so soon. Please enjoy your stay in Japan. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki is knowledgeable and informative. Given a rainy day, he was very flexible in changing our plans and making alternate arrangements to meet our needs. He gave us a great day in Hakone, even if we couldn't see Mt. Fuji... including arranging for a private onsen. He even went out of his way to accompany us to a hard-to-find restaurant.
Dear Pat, Thank you for writing the nice review of yesterday’s tour. Unfortunately, it rained but we took advantage of it, I am glad you like museums in Hakone. Best regards, Yuki
Yuki was an exceptional guide - We would definitely recommend him to anyone as he is very punctual and organized. He had previously requested for places for us to visit & organized the tour as requested. We had 2 great days with him. He made great suggestions and the tour was better than we expected. He is also very informative & friendly - The tour was well paced and well planned. He was flexible enough to accommodate our last minute changes (starting the tour later than usual etc). Yuki also took us to some great places to eat (Ramen & Tempura) which provided memorable experiences in places we simply would not have gone on our own. Thank Yuki!
Dear Hanisha, Thank you for your review of my tours. Lunch is an important part of my tour. I am very grad you like the Ramen and Tempura restaurants. Best regards, Yuki
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. It was important that I be at a private residence by a specific time, and he made that happen right on schedule. Unlike some guides I've had, he did not feel the need to chat incessantly. I liked that. I will use him again on my next trip.
Dear William, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I was my pleasure to guide you my favorite places. We were lucky to continue our tour in the Imperial Palace after spending some time at Asakusa to escape from the local heavy rain. Best regards, Yuki
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. He explained the hand washing ritual and guided us thru the proper protocol, Yuri even took the time on the way home to provide a history lesson to my son and I regarding both Religion and history of the Japanese culture. He is both compet... read more
Dear Mary, Thank you very much for the detailed review of my tours. Food is an important part of my tour so I was very happy when you ate the seafood curry in Kyoto. It was very good for you to take my tours in two days so that we could switch the date for Kyoto to avoid Typhoon 21. Best regards, Yuki
Yukon was very professional accomdating to our wishes and very knowledgeable. You will enjoy his comprehensive approach and understanding of Japon History an Religion.
Dear James, Thank you for writing a good review of my tour so soon. I am grateful for your generous tip of 100 USD. It was a good exercise for me to accommodate the last minute changes of plan and answer to many requests. Please enjoy other tours in Japan with your friends. Best regards, Yuki
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!
Dear Sunita, Thank you for your compliment of my tour. I am very happy that you appreciated my explanations to be more interested in Temples and the Shrine. Kamakura is my most favorite place. Best regards, Yuki
Very punctual and organized. Organized the tour as requested. We had a great day with him. He made great suggestions and the tour was better than we expected.
Dear Viviane, Thank you for your review. I am glad to know that you have enjoyed my tour. Best regards, Yuki
Very helpful and knowledgeable person. Guide us through few places. Very happy with our choice with tour guide
Dear Joseph, Thank you for writing a review of my tour.
