“ Very effective guide ”

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.

Yuki:

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

“ Tokyo & Yokohama Tours ”

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!

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

“ Flexible and informative ”

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.

Yuki:

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

“ Perfect Trip..Perfect Tour Guide ! ”

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

Yuki:

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

“ Excellent Tour of Kamakura ”

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!

Yuki:

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

“ Would refer Yuki-san to anybody ”

I would recommend Yuki-san to anyone. He was great even though we were late. With a few hours, we covered Senso-Ji Temple in Asakusa and Edo Castle with a Japanese Garden. He was very flexible to adjust to our schedule. We skipped lunch until 3pm. Ending tour with 15 minutes lunch. He kept track of the time and our train back to the airport. I think he will be a great person to show you around Tokyo.

Yuki:

Dear Hai, Thank you for writing the review of the tour, so soon. I am glad to know you were on time for your flight and safely returned to your country. Best regards, Yuki

“ No stress, personal sightseeing in and around the big city ”

Yuki is professional, experienced and knowledgeable about the history and culture of Japan especially Tokyo and it's surrounding area. He was early meeting us at our hotel each day (a blessing to be met at the hotel) and helped us navigate the detailed transportation system of Japan, even helping us validate our Jr train passes, showing us how to reserve trains, store luggage, plan and use the various passes and tickets on our own. We felt his personal attention even in the most crowed temples and shrines so we never felt overwhelmed. It was very hot when we visited and he knew just when to have us duck into air-conditioned museums between outdoor activities to get a cool, educational break. His English is good. He even helped us shop for some specific items we wanted along the way, ... read more

“ Yuki gave a super tour of Tokyo ”

Yuki took my family all around Tokyo and provided a very enjoyable tour. We started at the fish market and had a delicious lunch at one of his favorite sushi restaurants. Then we visited Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya and Akihabara, including visits to an owl cafe and a maid cafe. When my daughter wanted to spend more time browsing / shopping in Harajuku and Shibuya, Yuki was completely flexible and made changes to our schedule appropriately. It was a perfect way to spend the day and become more familiar with Tokyo. Thank you.

“ A wonderful day @ Hakone (with Onsen)! ”

We had a great time with Yuki-san in Hakone. He was very knowledgeable, and attentive to our needs, even helping to draw the shades when the sun’s rays were shining into the train carriage. The tour was well paced and well planned, with adequate breaks. The route was carefully selected to reduce unnecessary delays. When we had more time than expected, he offered us suggestions to make the most of our day, like nearby sights which we could visit while waiting for the next scheduled item. Yuki-san knows the perfect spot to capture the best view. To top it all off, he speaks great English and is a very engaging conversationalist. Thank you, Yuki-san!

Yuki:

Dear Teresa, Thank you for the compliment with a nice description of my Hakone tour. I enjoyed to guide your family with lots of talks. Sorry about missing Mt. Fuji but it is rather difficult to see the mountain in summer. But I was very happy when you enjoyed the places I took such as the old Tokaido and Gora park. Please give my best regards to your two sons, too. Yuki

He was very good and made the best of the situation. The weather was not suitable for a Mt. fuji itinerary but we had Lake Ashi cruise and the ropeway that ran close to the Volcano. And we went to a beautiful garden. It rained a little bit that day.

Yuki:

Dear Agnes, Thank you for writing the review of my tour to Hakone. It was unfortunate that Mt. Fuji was covered by clouds which happens sometime in summer. Please come again in Autumn or Winter when you can see a very clear view of the mountain. Best regards, Yuki

Yuki was a great tour guide and was very attentive to my 7 year old son. He had a tour setup for us but he was flexible enough to accommodate our last minute changes. We enjoyed our tour and it was very memorable.

Yuki:

Dear Vivian, Thank you for writing the review of my tour to Lake Kawaguchi. Everything went well, including seeing Mt. Fuji. The caves are very cool and beautiful ices kept there. Lake Kawaguchi was full of tour buses to occupy restaurants near by. It was disappointing to find my favorite restaurant being sold out its Hoto noodle but I took you my back up place where we ate a new Hoto.

“ Clueless in Tokyo ”

My brother and I chose to travel to Tokyo even though we knew very little about the Japanese culture and city. Yuki was extremely helpful and kind. He met us at the train station and escorted us to our hotel and then we began our tour. We had selected 3 locations to tour which included a garden, the government building with an incredible view of Tokyo and the Imperial Palace. Yuki explained many details about all 3 locations. He suggested a Ramen lunch and we went to a place where the locals eat which was quite interesting. I asked Yuki to help me figure out how to get to our tour departure location (cab or subway) the next day and he was extremely helpful. I highly recommend hiring an English speaking tour guide when you arrive in Tokyo if you are unfamiliar with the city because it... read more

“ Tokyo and Yokohama day sight seeing ”

We met Yuki for a day around Tokyo and then again for the sights of Yokohama. Yuki was great and managed to work an itinerary to see everything we wanted and coordinate the day so it flowed effortlessly. We particularly appreciated the instructions on how to use the Metro and JR lines and found this invaluable when doing our own thin on other days. Yuki also took us to some great places to eat which provided memorable experiences in places we simply would not have gone on our own. With Yuki it was also really easy to change plans or spend a little more time in places without any fuss which made the days stress free. We'd love to come back to Tokyo and spend some more time exploring with Yuki and would recommend to anyone looking for an informative and well educated guide.

“ Time with YUki ”

I just went on internet to look for a tour person in Japan for my children. TripleLights Service popped up. I went though the web site and booked a tour person for my children visiting in Japan. After my children came home from the trip. I asked them: "How is Yuki?" They answered: "Mom, give him 10+. Yuki is supper good."

Yuki:

Dear Len, Thank you for your review. It was in the rainy season and your children were lucky to see Mt. Fuji in a cloudy day. We switched the date of Hakone with the other tour to Kamakura. But we couldn't see Mt. Fuji at first and the bus to Owakudani was crowded. So we went to the glass museum. After the museum I found that the mountain was going to appear by the live camera in the web. So we went back to Owakudani by the other rope way to see Mt. Fuji. Please give my best regard to your children. Yuki

“ Wonderful Day in Tokyo ! ”

I came to Japan as a solo female traveler and figured it would be a good investment to tour the Tokyo area with a local, and I do not regret doing it with Yuki one bit. I spent about half a day with him and we went to the Tsukiji Fish Market, Akihabara, Meji Shrine, Asakusa and the Senso-Ji Temple. He was extremely accommodating (met me at my hotel and traveled with me back) and knowledgeable on the history and facts of each place we visited. The best part about being with Yuki was that he took me to a great local sushi restaurant and he also brought me around to the the best street food places I have ever had! I would highly recommend doing a tour with him as I had a wonderful time.

Yuki:

Dear Sharis, Thank you for your complements. I enjoyed the tour with you since you are such a nice lady. Sorry about Tsukiji as they becomes more and more strict for foreign travelers. I was very glad that we could find a nice quiet restaurant with tasty Sushi menue. Best regards, Yuki

This was our first time using a private tour guide and we're very happy to say all well great on our visit to Kamakura. Yuki was prompt at arriving at our hotel, taking us to the subway and around the various areas in Kamakura. The pace was great and to our liking. We even discovered that Yuki had previously lived in Chicago (where we're from) in the past. I would recommend Yuki to all.

“ Great custom day trip to Hakone ”

Yuki did a great job with our family -- two parents and 4 kids ages 16 through 6. Yuki picked us up at our hotel in Tokyo, helped us navigate the Shinkansen and bus to Hakone, and guided us around the sites of Hakone, and then got us to our ryokan where we were staying that night. He called the ryokan when we first arrived and arranged to have them pick up our bags, and again at the end of the day of siteseeing to pick us up. Everything worked perfectly. Yuki is a calm and expert guide, and was patient with us and all the kids explaining the highlights and allowing us to dictate the pace of the day. He took us on the typical circle route around the Hakone area but in a reverse order to minimize crowds and match our schedule better. It was a great day. Thank you!

Yuki:

Dear Brian, Thank you for writing such an elaborate and specific review of my tour. It was unfortunate that there was some cloud around Mt.Fuji but everything else went well. I hope you and your family could see Mt. Fuji while in Japan. Please give my best regards to your family, too. Yuki

Yuki was wonderful. He was well prepared, answered all my questions by email and was prompt. We had a wonderful day exploring Kyoto and visiting the top sites.

He met us at our hotel in Tokyo, helped us get the bullet train tickets at a discount, then helped navigate us through the sites we wanted to see in Kyoto ( bamboo forest, Toriii gates, golden temple). He added the Buddha temple for us and it was wonderful. We had homemade Kyoto cuisine at a local restaurant which was just perfect for our cultural experience. He then took us back to Tokyo on the bullet train. He also gave us some background and history of the shrines and temples with illustrations on his ipad.

“ Perfect Day in Kamakura ”

Yuki was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable of the history and culture of Japan. He had great visuals on his iPad that he showed us throughout the day to give us more detail about the history and locations we were visiting. He lent us a bus card that we added money to so that we could get to our locations faster. This meant that we had more time to visit once we arrived. We did up taking the wrong bus on accident, but he threw in an extra tour of one of the temples to make up for it. Overall, Yuki was a very knowledgeable guide and I would highly recommend him for your tour!

Since this was our first visit to Japan, it was great having an experienced guide like Yuki to help us navigate the rail and subway systems, and provide us with excellent descriptions and facts about all the places we visited. Moreover Yuki is very friendly and communicates well with people of all ages. Yuki got very high approvals from both my 11 year old son, and my mother who is in here 70’s. My whole family enjoyed our experience with Yuki, and would definitely use his services if we visit Japan again. Thank You Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Kevin, Thank you for writing such an elaborate review during your stay in Japan. I hope you and your family have a nice time in Disney Sea, now. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki

“ Tokyo Trip ”

Yuki was a wonderful tour guide. We had a couple of days in Tokyo which fortuitously coincided with the peak of cherry blossom season. He took us to all the wonderful hidden cherry blossom spots and made it such a wonderful experience. He was particularly kind to my children, the youngest one whom he took us to the character section and toy stores in Tokyo station, which turned out to be a highlight of his vacation. We recommend him without reservation.

Yuki:

Thank you for writing such a good review. I enjoyed the cherry blossoms and talking with you during the tour. Please give my best regards to your family. Yuki

“ Finding that spot of 30 years ago ”

Mr Yuki was a substitute guide who took over somebody whose services I booked much earlier but couldn't make it on the appointed date. I am thankful that TripleLights asked the very experienced Mr Yuki to bring us to our desired sites in Tokyo. He was very accommodating, too. He knew how much I wanted to revisit the spot near the Imperial Gardens with my daughter who was in my womb when I had a photo taken in that particular place 30 years ago. And, he found time for us to find that particular spot. If only for this, I am so grateful to Mr.Yuki.

Yuki:

Dear Ma, Thank you for taking your time to write the review. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. It is my great honor to guide a guest who has such special memories of Japan. Please give my best regards to your husband, too. Yuki

“ 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

“ Amazing Japan! ”

On behalf of my team of 4 from Penang Malaysia, we thank Yuki for his excellent tour guide to Hakone to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the beautiful Mount Fuji. It was indeed spectacular to view the mountain scenery from the cruise in Lake Ashi. Nevertheless, although the cable ropeway was closed due to climatic reason, we had a great lunch and bus ride down to the hot spring public bath at Yumoto Fujiya Hotel. Thanks to Yuki and will definitely come back to visit amazing Japan!

Yuki:

Dear Roseboo, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. On Nov. 3rd, Hakone was crowded more than I had anticipated as it was not only a Japanese national holiday but also the demonstration day of samurai procession at Yumoto which blocked the road to Hakone mountains. So we gave up taking a bus from Odawara. We were lucky to take the bus from Yumoto instead of the mountain train which was full of passengers. In addition to that Owakudani ropeway was closed due to the high concentration of the volcanic gas. Again we had to change our route to take a bus to Gora station where we took the mountain train to Yumoto where you took the hot spring bath. Please come again to see Mt.Fuji in other season from other place.

Our trip to Tokyo was a rainy one. Instead of going to Hakone with Yuki, he advised us to cancel it because of rain, thus we pushed thru to Kamakura. Yuki was a very nice guide. He showed us the interesting things in Kamakura, and he can also really walk too! He was there to guide us in taking the trains to reach our points of interests. We would have wanted a more informative guide, as Yuki was not as informative in the history of Kamakura as we would've liked. Although the gallery told of the history of the Kanon, it is still diffetent coming from your guide and also the shogun era of Japan. Overall, it was an okay experience to Kamakura. Getting a guide reaaly relieves you of the stress in the possibility of getting lost in Japan.

Yuki was our guide for Hakone (departing from Tokyo by Shinkansan). About half way through the tour we had stormy weather that resulted in the "ropeway" being cancelled. Thank goodness Yuki was there to figure out how to continue on our journey to Lake Ashi by local bus. This would have been very tricky without a knowledgeable guide. We stayed overnight in Hakone while Yuki headed back to the Tokyo area. He made sure that we had instructions on how to proceed to Kyoto on our own the next morning. I would recommend Yuki for his excellent English and his efficient manner.

Yuki:

Dear Kate, Thank you for taking time to write the nice review. Sorry for the extra payments for the bus and the cruise which were not covered by Hakone Free Pass. The ropeway to Owakudani was suddenly canceled due to an approaching thunder storm. They usually provide a shuttle bus to cover the ropeway route but they didn't this time. So we had to take the other bus to Owakudani and waited long time for a bus to Lake Ashi. At the lake, it rained so hard to walk to the planned pier for the pirate ship. Again we had to take other ship near by to cruise Lake Ashi. Anything can happen in Hakone due to weather. Best regards, Yuki

While Sunday is an extremely busy day for Hakone Yuki strategically found a way to avoid standing in lines by timing where we went at optimum times. He was informative answering our questions about Japanese culture and society. We returned rather late in the day and Yuki was extremely generous with his time spending around 10 hours with us. He even offered to take us back to our hotel on the train, although we told him it was not necessary. We highly recommend Yuki as a competent and informative guide.

Yuki:

Dear Ruth, Thank you for writing such a nice review. Your group is a very good guest for me. I enjoyed to answer questions one after another all during the tour. I hope you can see Mt. Fuji on the other day of staying in Japan. Bestvregards, Yuki.

“ A great and educational experience ”

Yuki was our guide for two full days, and during these two days we learned a lot about the history of Japan, which was most interesting to us. We visited the fish market, palace gardens and a few museums. Had a great lunch at the fish market and learned how to navigate the subway, which was far easier than we than we thought. Whatever question we had was answered often through a presentation in a website giving a great overview. Thank you Yuki, Ana & Flemming

Yuki:

Dear Flwmming, Thank you very much for taking your time during your travel. I am happy to know you learned a lot about Japan. It was one of the best tours since I started. Please enjoy your trip Japan with your wife Ana. Best regards, Yuki.

“ Cherry blossoms and ladies in Kimono ”

We really enjoyed our walking tour with Yuki. He was very helpful and informative. We enjoyed lunch in a local restaurant which offered the area's local delicacies. The restaurant was very pleasant and it gave us a chance to learn more about Japanese culture from Yuki. One of the highlights along with the temples and shrines was the ladies dressed in kimono and standing by the cherry blossoms in Kamakura.

Yuki:

Dear Richard, Thank you for taking time to write the review. I am very happy to know you enjoyed my tour. Kamakura is a nice place to feel the good old Japan. Please give my best regards to your friend, too.

“ Tokyo City tour and Tour to Mount Fuji ”

We had an excellent trip of Tokyo City tour and Mount Fuji with Mr.Yuki. Mr.Yuki took us to a lot of viewing spots near Lake Kawaguchi. He also took us to a good restaurant for lunch in Lake Kawaguchi to taste Japanese delicacy. He planned the trip very nicely so that we did not have to rush during our site seeing.

Yuki:

Dear Srinivasan, Thank you very much for writing the review. We were very lucky to view the great Mt. Fuji but we were a little late to arrive the lake. It was on Sunday and Lake Kawaguchi was very crowded with not only foreigners but also Japanese people. I was very upset when many of the rstaurants near the lake were closed as their lunch were sold out. We were lucky to find a small cafe to provide lunch but their Sukiyaki was very good. Although we could not take the lake cruise, we could take a direct train to Tokyo which was very comfortable. Give my best regards to your colleagues, too.

“ One amazing Tokyo day with Yuki ”

We spend one day with Yuki visiting Tokyo station, entrance Imperial palace, Imperial East Garden, Senso-Ji tempel and Skytree. We had an amazing time including an amazing lunch. Yuki has a great knowledge of history and events that formed Tokyo. He explained us the JR train system so we could smoothly travel later to Takayama and also the metro system. He uses his ipad to support his explanation. He is very helpful, very friendly and speaks very good English. Our two daugters expected Yuki again the next day, they missed him already. We will visite Tokyo again and hopefully Yuki has time to join us then!

Yuki:

Dear Alexandra, Thank you for writing your review of my tour. I am very happy to know you and your family enjoyed my tour. It was a nice tour for me, too as you are very interested in my explanations of the history of each sites. We have the Golden Week from April 29th to 27th during when many popular places will be crowded. I would recommed not so crowded places near Tokyo such as Kamakura during these days. It's very kind of you giving me the Dutch waffles and Japanese rice crakers, they are very good. Best regards,Yuki

“ Day trip to Kyoto ”

Yuki was an excellent guide. He met me at the Tokyo Station, and we headed out on a day trip to Kyoto. Yuki was very organized from the beginning of our tour to the end. He had meticulously planned our itinerary as to fit the most sites in to our short time in Kyoto. Communication prior to the tour was great. Yuki was also a great conversationalist, and he was obviously well versed in Japanese history. I enjoyed talking with him over the course of the tour. We had a busy day, but I greatly appreciate him taking me to Kyoto. Thanks Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Terrell, Thank you for writing a nice review of my tour. I am very glad to know you enjoyed it. I will improve my tour based on this great experience with you. Best regards, Yuki.

“ Varied Tokyo ”

We spent 5 days with Yuki and from the beginning, he was fantastic. He helped us to navigate the underground system, quickly and efficiently. We went to a variety of places, where he gave detailed explainations, sometimes using his iPad to show us different facts about where we were. We have seen some very modern parts of Tokyo whilst also enjoying more historical aspects too. Yuki has a great knowledge of history and events that shaped modern day Tokyo. He was flexible, helpful and very friendly, whilst helping us to follow Japanese protocol in different situations. We ate in some fabulous restaurants including having the most amazing sushi. We cannot recommend him highly enough for the time and effort he put in to making our stay so wonderful. Nothing was too much effort. We were sad to... read more

Yuki:

Dear John, Thank you for taking your precious time before your depature to UK to write such a detailed review ! Your good fortune makes such a wonderful tour; just on time for the cherry blossom peak and viewing very clear Mt. Fuji due to sudden change of the weather during very rainy days. We missed many places such as Odaiba and Tokyo National museum. There are other places we could not planed such as Lake Kawaguchi and Kamakura. Let's save these places for your next visit to Japan, maybe sometime in autumn. Please give my best regards to your wife and daughters. Your are the best guest I have ever guided.

“ Yuki was Great! ”

Yuki did an excellent job of pre-trip planning, giving us many details and providing options. With our input he tailored the tour to concentrate on the things for which we had the most interest. Yuki did a very good job of letting us know what expenses to expect (admission fees, train ticket costs, etc.) and was able to optimize each trip to take advantage of passes which allow admission to several venues. Yuki made sure the pace was good (we prefer a fast pace), and he tailored the pace to be best for us.

Yuki:

Dear Linda, Thank you for writting such a elaborate review. It was a great pleasure for me to guide your family. Best regards, Yuki.

“ Very Educational Session with Mr. Yuki ”

We were very pleased that it was Mr. Yuki that we chose to guide us around the Imperial Palace Grounds - he imparted to us his knowledge, and it was very edifying for us to know so much about Japanese history and Mr Yuki had the knack to mix the old with the new - in terms of how he related things about Japan to us. We are very grateful to Mr. Yuki. The final touch we Mr. Yuki sent us the photos he had taken - and this to us is very very memorable.

Yuki:

Dear Vipin, Thank you for writing a review of my tour. I was very glad to know that you are interested in Japanese history and gave me a lot of questions. 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.
