Shin made our two days in Tokyo amazing. Of all the guides I have ever booked Shin was the most organized. He was waiting at the airport with copies of a daily Itenerary for us. He even caught an error between the train arrival time and our planes departure time saving us from missing our flight. Shin was fun and interesting, adding fascinating insights to everything we experienced. When visiting Japan, hiring a guide is a must. Just knowing the language and his way around the subway allowed us to see twice what we would have seen on our own. We loved our trip with Shin and would definitely book with him again when we revisit.
Hello Mr.Marc. I would truly appreciate that you chose me as a Tokyo tour guide this time. I am very happy to know that you have accomplished a long journey with your family in many countries. I am sure there must be plenty of unforgettable stories and memories. I think a guide should be more than guide. On top of introducing just culture and history, I'd like to organize all situations from tourist points of view and to take as much responsibility as possible in order to create a precious moment. It would be great for me if I could be able to have an another chance in the future. Thank you very much ! SHIN
He was very friendly ,helpful He's information was very good He show us different interesting places We are very happy with Shin
Hello Ms.Petra Thank you very much for hiring me as a tour guide in Osaka from cruise seaport. I am so happy to be with you through visiting many places where I could with pleasure. Especially I think Kuromon foods arcade is likely most interesting for you. Even it was a short hours we had much fun time in Osaka. I hope happy life for you and your family. Veel Dank. SHIN
Shin helped us taking public transport and gave very good tips about thé Japanese way of life. He is a very friendly guide. We booked him also for Kyoto. I would recommend him immediately. We spend a wonderfull 1/2 day in Osaka.
I really appreciate your nice message for the tour in Osaka and Kyoto, and thank you so much for having chosen me as a tour guide. Though Osaka and Kyoto are closer location, there are different atmosphere. So I think your plan is good selection to enjoy another colors. I hope you will be able to have as much wonderful moment as possible in Japan tour. SHIN
Shin was a wonderful host and tour guide. Definitely 5 stars from us! We only had one day in Kyoto so we really wanted to see as many sights as possible. Shin allowed us too personalise our day tour, also taking our children's interests into consideration. Shin was incredibly professional and extremely knowledgeable. We had the most incredible day in Kyoto with Shin. Shin was also very helpful with our train tickets and ensured we made it onto the correct train to Osaka Airport at the end of the day. ( In his own time) Do not hesitate to book Shin, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Shin Regards, Sophie
Thank you very much for your nice review comment. I am so happy to know that all travel plans in Japan had been completed on schedule. I think, during your travel, there were sometimes hot days other times rainy days, but I am sure different places and colorful atmospheres must make your tours unforgettable ones. I would really appreciate that you chose me as your guide in Kyoto. And it was great fun to be able to talk about your country as well as Japan. Especially I remember well where we went to a wild monkey park in Arashiyama by 30 minutes walking mountain path. It was nice memory! I hope happiness and prosperity for your family. SHIN
I started to communicate with Shin regarding 2 days of guided tour from Tokyo to Mt. Fuji, to Hakone to Kyoto. Since this was early in my attempt to put together a plan for a 17 days tour for 6 people in Japan, Shin very quickly gave me invaluable advice and tips, way beyond his two days with us. He practically “took responsibility” for our well being during the entire time. Rented a minivan for us for one day, took care of all other reservation we still needed, gave us information about hotels we booked, calculated the cost effectiveness of a JRpss based on our needs, and more. I booked his days about 3 weeks ahead, but he took the initiative to continue to correspond with me during the next 3 weeks whenever he had a new thought or idea of what will make our trip better (all 17 days of it, not only the 2 he was booked us). Corresponding with him was a pleasure, always prompt and full of good tips and answered many questions as most of first time in Japan traveler will have. Continuously encouraged me to ask him any question I had about our trip, not only the days with him. Extremely generous with his time to help as much as needed. To call Shin a “tour guide” really covers only a small portion of what he has done for us. In addition, he is very knowledgeable in history and culture. We have learned from him a great deal about Japan. He is very punctual, very polite, very efficient, pays attention to details. His English is very good. He met us in the morning highly prepared with hand drawn maps specific to our trip. He quickly became part of our group. All in all a very nice gentleman. Shin made our trip easier and unforgettable. We love shin and are extremely grateful for him being with us. We highly recommend him! If he is available he’s your guy!
Hello Nurit san First of all I’d like to say thank you so much because you gave me precious moment that means not only choosing me as your tour guide but also making my life much happier and valuable through the tour. And also I feel so happy to know that your trip has been completed on schedule accompanied with unforgettable memories. Today I am reminiscing our time staying at the 5th station of Mt.Fuji, even though we could not see mountain top face but a large-scaled fresh air scenery and greenery welcomed us. What’s more a beautiful Lake, Yamanaka, gave us shinning and gentle smile so that we enjoyed good time at nice lunch restaurants, noodle and pumpkin local dish, called Hoto-nabe hot pot. We could relax by the Lake very much! Actually you gave me good point and timely questions about Japanese culture, customs and societies from time to time. Such a good Q&A time encourages me very much to polish my comprehensive knowledge, capability and hospitality. Every talking time members gave me was a great learning chance. Thank you very much! As you know, there are different faces and colors in Japan not only place to place but season to season. I would really appreciate if I could do your tour guide again in different season such as crimson maple leaves autumn or cherry blossom spring. And I’d like to introduce another tasty local cuisines and sweet SAKE. I hope you and your family’s happiness, health and prosperity from Kyoto and Tokyo houses. SHIN.
Shin made our trip unforgettable. He is highly knowledgeable, tons of fun, extremely polite and punctual, and a fantastic host for Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. We wouldn’t have been able to see nearly as much without him, and it wouldn’t have been half as fun. We love shin! Highly recommend - don’t think twice...he’s your guy!
Thank you for nice comment Max san. It was wonderful days for me too. We had enjoyed local foods, lovely garden and temples, lovely deer, super delicious Ramen, and singing favorite songs together. A bit regrettably we didn't have an enough time to taste bakery in DEPACHIKA of Daimaru department store. And I think monkeys in Kyoto are expected to be waiting for you after deer in Nara on your next tour. I really hope happy time will keep on going for your family. Arigato ALLIGATOR not CROCODILE, Max san. SHIN
We are a family of four from the USA. Part of our Asia tour had 5 days in Japan with only 3 full days of touring, and we wanted to see the three major cities: Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto in that short amount of time without having to figure out the complex subway system of Japan. We are so glad that we found Shin. We spent 3 days with him. He is a very nice gentleman, knows his way around the cities of Japan, and goes out of his way to help us to make our vacation worry free. His English is very good and he explains well. He helped us translate many items and signs. Took us to shortcuts and places some other tourists dont know about. He would make detailed notes on paper to give us in case we get lost or when we go on our own when the tour is done for the night. He also speaks Tagalog which is my wife and my native language. He knows our culture well, having lived in the philippines. It made us and the kids very comfortable with him from the beginning. Overall, I am very satisfied with the service that Shin has provided. Not only did we have a great 3 day tour seeing all the cities. but we also made a lifelong friend in Shin. Thank you Shin! See you next time.
Hi Joe san. Thank you so much for your nice review comment and I would really appreciate that you chose me as a three-days-guide in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nara tours. It’s my great pleasure to know you had completed whole itinerary smoothly. It’s your first sightseeing visit to Japan, so I think there are a lot of things that must amaze and interest your family. And I am sure various local foods in Nishiki market Kyoto and Dotonbori gourmet street Osaka must be interesting. And hope nice souvenirs will make your friends feel so happy. This time I selected not only famous places but also some off the beaten paths. Through this tour I wish the country, “Japan”, will be much familiar and closer to you. See you next time in another season such as crimson leaves autumn or silver snowed beautiful winter. And also please visit my Kyoto olden villa. Maraming salamat ! SHIN
Our family of four was fortunate to have Shin as our personal guide. We were visiting from Hawaii and it was the first time we travelled alone to Japan. Shin offered his help immediately after we contacted him, always responding with “ask me anything (even questions outside the booking dates). He helped us reserve our seats on the Shinkansen, and even changed the time of his ticket so he could take the Shinkansen with us when we went to Tokyo. Shin’s tour was special. It was personalized to our interests and included local culture, history, and restaurants we would not have experienced without him. Shin’s English is very good. He is personable and easy to talk to and understand. He found topics of interest to make conversation with all of us. We all enjoyed Shin and he quickly became a part of our family. Shin is very thoughtful, knowledgeable, helpful, and detailed. He always kept our group together making sure no one got lost. Shin took photos for us and sent them to us at the end of the day. We appreciated his determination to help us find gifts we wanted to purchase. He read the packaging for us and made recommendations. Shin was a wonderful guide, we didn’t have to worry about anything. Shin was always thinking one step ahead to make sure everything went smoothly. Before we parted, Shin shared tips and options about getting around and drew detailed maps for us. We really appreciate Shin’s time and energy. Thank you so much Shin-san for the very special memories!
Hello Candace san. Thank you so much for your nice comment. I feel happy you could have a happy moments in the first tour from Hawaii. Your friendly smile always made me feel relax so that I could happily and smoothly guide you as if we were family members as you stated. Osaka and Nara you chose are just recommendable places with different colors and attractions. Osaka, called Kitchen of Japan, so you could taste various delicious local foods. On the other hand, Nara, old capital town of Japan in the 8th century, has another fascinating aspects. I am amazed you had selected best routes as a first tour of Japan. I am sure different seasons and various cities in Japan will waiting for you to come back in the future. During the tour it was great fun for me to know about lovely island, Hawaii. I remembered sweet honeymoon trip to Honolulu with my wife 40 years ago. Time flies fast but people's good memory keep staying in a heart forever as well as our tour in Japan. I wish we could meet next time either in Hawaii or Japan. I am proud of having guided wonderful guests like you, Candace san. Thank you very much. Aloha ! SHIN
Our family of four, with two younger teenagers, loved our trip to Kyoto thanks to spending two days with Shin. Shin had excellent communication with us prior to our arrival, suggesting itineraries based on our preferences. He was very experienced in the public transit system of Kyoto which facilitated getting around quite efficiently. Shin is a most considerate and thoughtful individual. He went out of his way to accommodate our travel requests. The kids absolutely loved visiting the monkeys of Arashiyama, something we wouldn’t have planned ourselves. We saw a good deal of most of the must-see sights in Kyoto. On our third day (without Shin) we experienced an earthquake in the 5.5 range. It was quite scary especially being in a country outside of our own (U.S.). Shin contacted us even though our time with him had ended, to inquire after our well-being and offered his assistance should we need it. He also helped us manage train arrangements for our next stop, Hiroshima. Suffice to say we highly recommend Shin for his expert knowledge of the area, his kind and considerate manner and overall excellence as a guide.
Hello Mrs.Shari I would really appreciate to be given nice review comment on my Kyoto tours. The two days with you is one of the most marvelous moment that I have ever had as a tour guide life since over last year. Honestly speaking before making plan I was thinking over and over again how I should make a best courses that you would be satisfied with your family. So,, as you mention, a wild monkey park is one of off the beaten paths as well as Shinnyodo temple near my villa. I set our tour courses by 50% off the beaten paths and 50% famous but busy streets. By the way, a day after our tour, magnitude 5 earthquakes occurred, so instantly I thought I had to inform you of the relevant information to organize further schedule. I think a timely communication at unexpected cases is most important task for professional tour guides. And it was great fun for me to listening to your hometown and your every day life. I get interested much more in USA and your town. I am looking forward to seeing again. Thank you very much for having me this time, Shari san. I truly wish happiness of your family ! SHIN
very good organization, customer orientated, very good explanations. Thanks for the great days in Tokyo and Yokohama!
Hello Samira san. Vielen Dank für Ihren netten Kommentar zum meiner Reiseleiter. Unter schöne Wetter hatten wir guten Zeit in traditionale Platz von Tokio und Yokohama. Ich hoffe daß wir könnten am nächsten Mal in Kioto und Nara besuchen. I wünsche Ihnen ein glückliches und erfolgreiches Leben. Auf wiedersehen. SHIN
I presented Shin with a challenge when organising my tour by wanting a more everyday cultural experience. My initial request was very vague and wishy washy. Shin was constantly patient in working with me to come up with an itinerary. In the end we settled on a mixture of high and low culture and we packed a lot of experiences into a very fun day. Shin is very generous in his nature and keen to try to fulfill the wishes of anyone booking with him. He was very helpful about other aspects of travelling in Japan both before and after our tour. Thank you so much Shin. I look forward to booking with you again next time I am in Japan.
Hello Cathy san. I am super delighted to have made a brand new plan thanks to inspiring me with how to enjoy Tokyo from the heart. Yes honestly speaking, at first I was so embarrassed to listen to your wide-ranged likes and wishes but gradually I became feeling fun to make a never-experienced Tokyo adventure. The work looks like a playing with building blocks to construct new house. This time I was given unforgettable nice memory such as sake drinking-stand-bar, Pachinko pinball parlor along with a lot of sophisticated cultural places. Once again thank you very much for giving me a precious opportunity and moment, Cathy san ! SHIN
I just want to commend Shin san for the excellent handling our our tour in Osaka, Nara and Kyoto. He went out of his way to help us and attend to our needs as well. Our vacation was a very pleasing and memorable experience.
Hello Nilo san. Thank you very much for hiring me as your tour guide in a gourmet and amusement city Osaka, ancient traditional capitals Kyoto and Nara. I feel happy we had a lot of pleasurable time to talk about not only Japan but beautiful country the Philippines. Japan has lots of attractive different faces by season to season and place to place. So I am looking forward to having an another tour. Nais ko ang iyong kaligayahan at tagumpay ng iyong buhay. Malaming salamat Nilo san. SHIN
Shin was so fantastic. easy going, a should must guide... We spend 3 days with him, he show us how to use Train, what should we do, etc my son really love the adventure that Shin took us. Hope to see him in the future, memory remined Thank you so much Kakek Shin for the wonderful trip, your cucu so deep in love with Japan.
Selamat pagi Komang san. So wonderful review ! Terimah kasih for hiring me as your first Japan tour. I am very happy your family had a terrific tour in Japan. We had only one cold and cloudy day in Kyoto but after that, in Tokyo, a blue sky, langit biru, returned to wrap us gently because of your shining magic power given by sacred Hindu rosary. And I remember the beauty scene that your wife put lovely Kimono and walked on the Fushimi-inari shrine passing through vermilion torii gates. I hope your happiness and good life in Ubud Bali, beautiful town. I am ever kakek senang. Thank you cucu and all, Komang san ! SHIN
SHIN without a doubt was the very best guide we have ever had, and we have traveled all over the world. He was knowledgeable, knew the best places to see, eat and shop. He went way over what he was supposed to do. Spent many extra hours with us without charge. Went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wanted, made reservations for us and guided us with a friendly, happy attitude. Could not have enjoyed Tokyo the way we did without him. Only sorry we didn't use him for our guide in Kyoto. My husband and the two friends we traveled with all felt the same way, he was the best guide ever. Thank you, thank you, SHIN.
Hello Evelyn san. I really appreciate your wonderful comment and posting a quick review in a faster way than that of Shinkansen bullet train ! There are a lot of good scenes that we toured in four days tour, Tokyo, Kamakura and Enoshima, Hakone. But the unforgettable one that I recollect was seeing Mt.Fuji capped with silver snow from the Lake Ashi, in Hakone. Some say the possibility of being able to view Mt, Fuji from Hakone is as low as 20% through the year. And during tours I was also delighted to have had a fruitful and inspired stories. It was a happy moment for me. Having seen Mt. Fuji and blue sky in Lake Ashi, Hakone, one of my favorite songs came up to my mind. "On a clear day, rise and look around, and we see who we are, on a clear day, how it will astound us, that the blow of us breathing outshines every star,, we can see forever and forever,," I wish happiness and success whole your life. Once again thank you very much Evelyn san ! SHIN
Shin's guide services provided us with an excellent experience in Kyoto on March 11, 2018. In addition to a full day of wonderful sites (Golden Temple, Food Market, Bamboo Forest, etc.) Shin helped us purchase our tickets to Hiroshima, and provided detailed information for our connections to Mt Koya and to the Iya Valley. Shin was prompt, sensitive, knowledgable, and had an excellent sense of humor. We give SHIN our highest possible evaluation.
Thank you very much for your nice comment, Patricia san. I feel delighted to know you could have a marvelous time in spiritual world, Mt.Koya and beautifully blessed valley, Iya-dani. I think, a guide is maybe not a guide, it is probably a person finding wonderful people like you. And sharing rapport moment in such a beautiful country might be its duty. And next time I would really hope we could visit your sister university, Notre Dame and another hidden-gem spots in Kyoto. We sang a song together in Arashiyama “Blue sky smile at us, nothing but blue sky do we see, blue birds singing a song nothing but blue sky all day long, never saw the bamboo shining so bright,,, ” I wish your happiness from my heart. Thank you again Patricia san for giving me ever unforgettable memories in Kyoto. SHIN.
Mr. Shin was very accommodating and genuinely concerned. He went out of his way, over a month before our scheduled tours, to look for a special requirement of my daughter who has a medical condition. And, he gave me regular updates on it. Mr. Shin was also generous with his time and very knowledgeable not only of the tourist spots we visited but also of places we passed by. Having been previously assigned in the Philippines, he would sometimes talk to us in Filipino. This gave us a special affinity. He was just like a "kababayan" (compatriot). Our 2-day tour of Kyoto and Nara was indeed interesting and enjoyable!. MR. SHIN is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Ma san. Arigato Gozaimasu for your warm review message. And thank you very much for hiring me over your precious Japan tour. I am so happy all your itinerary had completed smoothly. I didn’t feel we had met first time. And I am honored to be Kababayan as you stated. The great memories of ancient town Kyoto, and your memorable place Nara, will stay with our mind forever. Time flies so fast, and everything are transient but peaceful gentle smile of Great Buddha is unwavering to shine us. As you mention, Marunong ako kounti mag Tagalog. And I will ever keep on doing my best to create everyone’s special happy tour. Thank you very much again Ma san! SHIN
Touring with Shin was amazing! In 5 hours, Shin helped us see the important places that were on our list. He met us on the platform of the Nizomi train and helped us quickly drop off our luggage and hit the road! We started with the Golden Temple (breathtaking), then on to the Kiyomizu Dera Temple (uphill beauty) and ended at the Fushimi inira Taisha Shrine (amazing torii’s gates). These sights were not closely situated and without Shin’s guidance, it would’ve taken really long to get around. Thank you Shin - you are the best AND we appreciated the history and guidance you provided!
Hello Greg san. Thank you so much for your wonderful review comment. I am very happy to know that your Japan’s tour fulfilled with great fun and nice memories. As you state, though it was a quick hopping sightseeing, we could smoothly visit most must-see spots in Kyoto. I am so glad. And I assume you could feel a big changes in Tokyo compared to the past. I really wish your happiness and everything will be fine with your family from my heart. Our wonderful memories in Kyoto will keep on shining on my mind forever. Arigato gozaimasita ! SHIN
We spent 2 days with Shin - 1 day in Tokyo and 1 day in Kyoto. Shin's English is very good and his knowledge was excellent as he was able to answer every question we asked. He gave us very good advice about sights to see and he also recommended excellent restaurants for lunch. He also showed us his family house in Kyoto which I felt very honoured to visit. He also helped with our train tickets and gave very good advice about using the Metro in Tokyo. After 2 days he felt like a very good friend. I have no hesitation in recommending him and would use him again if I visit Japan in the future.
Hello Brian san, Margaret san. I would really appreciate your nice review message from my heart. Our two days has gone fast with a spring wind but I am sure our precious time keep on shining in my heart like a lovely plum flower we saw together. And it was short time to visit Kyoto by Shinkansen train rush tour, however I am truly honored you could drop by my old tatami Kyoto villa. On a next chance I’d like to be again in autumn with terrific crimson maple leaves. I wish happiness and health. Once-in-a-life-time moment never stay same place, however, plenty of unforgettable memories will keep on living in my mind. Thank you again ! SHIN
mr shin is a wonderful tour guide , he always make sure you are comfortable during the trip, all are easy when you are with mr shin no worry at all nothing much to say but EXCELLENT , "highly recommended" hope to see you soon thanks for the wonderful and memorable tour
Dear Peter san. First of all I'd like to say lots of thanks from my heart to hire me in Tokyo tours. And further I am grateful for your quick review despite you already return to busy daily life. Some say a flock of seagulls will come to nice people and bring happiness. I've been to Odaiba waterfront so often but it was my first time to watch a lot of pretty birds. Only one thing I feel regrettable is a weather report was wrong. Sorry there was no snow on Tuesday though you expected ! See you another seasons different places. I wish happy hours will come to your lovely family. Magkita tayo uli. Maraming salamat. SHIN
Have you ever experienced serendipity? Well, that's the what we felt when Shin san 'stumbled' into our lives. My wife and I are from the USA, and our daughter attended school in Japan as part of an exchange program in Kitakyushu. When our daughter flew to Japan on her own, she was met with the daunting task of navigating the chaotic train station in Tokyo. When attempting to buy a train ticket, she heard some people speaking english nearby. She approached them, and asked for help. This is where she first met Shin san, who happened to be with a couple from the Philippines that hired Shin san as a tour guide. Shin asked his clients if it would be okay if he helped our daughter. The very gracious couple said of course, go ahead and help her. Shin then helped our daughter buy a train ticket, and actually escorted her to her seat. She was extremely relieved, and was put at ease. She texted me Shin's business card, which had his email address on it. I emailed Shin san and thanked him profusely for helping our daughter, and said that if we come to Japan, we would hire him to guide my wife and I around. Well, several months later, we did just that. Right now, I am sitting at the airport after a terrific 10-day trip to Japan (for the first time). We hired Shin san for two days. The first day, he took us around all sorts of sites in Tokyo. We took a stroll around the Imperial Palace, saw a samurai statue, and many other sites, which Shin san backed up with knowledge of each location. Trust me, he knows where to go, and where to find the out of the way cafe to eat at, without being too touristy. Our lunch was at a Japanese restaurant, which meant that we had to remove our shoes, and walk in our socks over to our lowered table. Very cool. But I have to say, that BEFORE the first day, Shin went above and beyond his responsibility, and he actually met our daughter at the Tokyo train station, and escorted her to our hotel in the Shinjuku district, which is about 30 minutes by train from Tokyo station. Unbelievable, and extremely generous. On the second day, he took us to the Enoshima Seacoast via train, then we went to Kamakura area, and saw the Hasedara Temple, The great Buddha, Komachi Street, and many other places. Again, we found a quaint little coffee shop to have a cup of coffee, and shared some cheesecake. Very relaxing. During both days, Shin san is busy taking pictures (including selfies), and at the end of each day, he texted me copies of some of the pictures that he took. Nice touch! After we were all done, and move on to our next venture (which was Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea), Shin san checked in with us, to make sure we were okay with our independent travels. All in all, we just love Shin san, as you can see from all previous reviews. I'm not surprised at all that he has had such an impact on people's lives. He's true kind soul, who just wants to make his guests happy, and relaxed. Success!! May we meet again Shin san, and if and when we return to Japan, you will be hired by us again. Thank you!!
Dear Andrew san. I would really appreciate for your fabulous review comment. I feel so happy to know that you and your family completed all schedule with terrific memories in Japan. I think most first-timers to visit foreign countries may have not only great longing but anxiety at the same time. How to convert from anxiety to happy moment must be significant matter both for guests and for guides. Every time I meet my important new guests, I really feel this world seems to be small as if it would be connected each other to let it start new world. Honestly speaking I was surprised to receive an email from you last September because I completely forgot a meeting moment with your daughter. Sorry ! And after half year we could finally meet in Tokyo. It is an amazing story like a movie ! I am sure that an exchange student program between two cities will surely deepen overseas friendship especially good for the youth. A half year living in Japan will make sure she could have a precious moment and got many new friends. And also I am pleased to know about your beautiful home town of U.S. with plenty of beautiful nature and greenery. Blue skies smiling at me nothing but blue skies do I see,, and white snow-capped mountain and big river like a great mother. We have been to Tokyo and Kamakura this time. If we have a chance in the future I would like to introduce western part of Japan such as Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Mt. Koya further Hiroshima. I’d like to say thank you again for giving me an unforgettable shining memories that I will never forget. I truly wish your happiness and health. SHIN
Shin-san is a very kind-hearted, friendly and generous man. He had been very helpful during our journey to Nara, Kyoto and Shiga (Biwako Valley). Even though we did not book him for our Osaka trip, he was kind enough to provide helpful tips and guidance on how to go about in Osaka. In fact, he had always been in touch even before our trip and advised us on suitable itirenary. His willingness to do extra ‘homework’ in order to accomodate our religious needs was also commendable. He was very patient with our 2 kids even though sometimes their behaviour could be challenging. We highly recommend Shin as your local tourist guide in Japan.
Hello Khairul san. Thank you very much for your nice review. I really feel happy your family could have wonderful time in the first visit of Japan. Now that I can say, on the first day we met, I was worried about January’s harsh cold weather might hurt you especially for children. But very soon my worry had totally gone when I saw your kids started enjoying with big smiles. And it’s lucky us because the day of Biwako valley was breathtaking beautiful blue sky shinning on the silver snow world. Yes as you state, I will keep on homework of foreign countrie's study to accommodate. The culture and religion of every country are important to be respected even looks are different. Again I would appreciate your visiting Japan and I hope happiness and health of all your family from the bottom of my heart. Terima kasih banyak and Arigato Gozaimashita ! SHIN
Shin san is kind and helpful always. When we began contacting Shin san, he always listens and promptly answering any of our queries, to help us customised our Kyoto and Tokyo day tours which were perfectly enjoyable. It has been a relaxed, fun and informative trip with Shin san. He cares about your needs and makes our trip a wonderful experience. Highly recommend. Thank you so much Shin san!
Helen san, Thank you very much for your nice comment and review. It was my great pleasure to guide you and your sister family in Tokyo and Kyoto. Thanks to giving me an opportunity of guide I could learn about a lot of tips to polish my guiding skill. By the way I am so amazed how perfect Japanese you can speak ! Hope I will be able to do your tour guide someday and somewhere again. I am hoping your happiness and prosperity like a shining and bright Tokyo Rainbow Bridge ! Cheers and Arigato gozaimasita. SHIN
After our friend recommended Triple Lights my Family and I went through their list of guides and decided to hire the services of Shin san. At first it was only for Tokyo and Kyoto/ Nara so that we can get the services of our friend’s guide since he lives in Osaka. From the very first time that we communicated with Shin san, he was so enthusiastic and eager to assist us. One of our inquiries was for the birthday of the emperor. I really wanted to be there and attend that event where Emperor Akihito will give a message and wave to the people who are inside the Imperial Palace. Shin San checked for us the process for that and even accompanied us going there. And for me it was the highlight of our Japan trip. I thought my husband and our kids will get bored and tired since there was walking and waiting and standing for hours. But to my surprise. They were so happy to have experienced something like that. Shin san made our trip to Japan convenient and stress free even on days he was not with us. He made sure we know where we were supposed to be going and how to get there.... which train to take, even the time schedule of the trains going to a certain destinasyon like Universal Studios and platform number. We were really pampered —he gave our kids (ages 22 and 18) candies to taste and us some Japanese cakes. It was well beyond what he is supposed to be doing. It was like our kids had a Japanese grandpa. He took care of coordinating with the hotel staff for the taxis which will bring us to the Tokyo station when we went to see the emperor. He was a big help when we are looking for a restaurant since he speaks Japanese and English. What is Special is that he also speaks Tagalog! It was fun to discuss with him things about the Philippines because he has lived in the Philippines for several years. We learned things about Japan that we would not have known if we did not get a guide. More than anything —-our Japan trip would not have been as fun and enjoyable and stress free and convenient ad it was if it was not for Shin san. By the way, I need to emphasize that he was always on time if not early but he did not make us feel we needed to rush or hurry up. We had a wonderful time in Nara deer Park strolling and feeding the deer. Shin San was so nice and energetic. He was not counting the time. He wanted us to enjoy the trip. For all of those and more: “maraming maraming salamat Shin San!!! We will wait for you next year in Manila. With much Love, RioPamPatRap
Dear Pam san. At first I’d like to say many thanks to hire me as a tour guide in Tokyo, Nara, Kyoto and Osaka in a series of travel. I am so happy your family could have a lot of nice memories place by place and with every activities. I would like to show my heartfelt gratitude to your wonderful review. Such a nice messages surely encourage and enable me to make more efforts to further help and assist many foreign tourist. Honestly speaking, I was really admired when I got to know you would like to attend the Japanese Emperor’s Birthday Celebration on 23rd December. Even a Japanese people not all do that. Your mind is just a mutual understanding stance. I am so delighted to that. Even though we waited for a long time in cold windy garden, I am sure you could feel something special about long and deep Japanese culture and history. The incumbent Emperor, Akihito age 84, will abdicate in April 2019. I think, as you state, the day 23rd is one of the HILIGHT of our Japan trip. Of course there are another many HIGHLITE such as Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki lunch time in Dotombori and feeding-deer hours in Nara Park etc. Looking back to our destination, in Tokyo, Asakusa Sensoji temple, Tsukiji fish market, The Imperial palace. In Nara, Deer Park, Todaiji Temple, The Great Buddha Statue. In Kyoto, Fushimi-inari shrine, Arashiyama bamboo grove. In Osaka, Osaka Castle, Dotombori gourmet town, and Shinsaibashi shopping street. Please confirm again these names if you need. Now saying I am a little bit worried about if you would get tired amid long-walking and busy train-riding. I would really appreciate tolerable cooperation and gentle thoughtfulness to me during whole tours. As people know, Japan has four clear-cut seasons, Cherry blossom in April, fireworks and outdoor entertainment in Summer, colorful leaves in Autumn, and delicious warm dishes and hot spring in Winter. So please enjoy Japan’s another faces and colors next time. I truly wish happiness and everything will go well with all your family. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Maraming salamat Maria san, Rio san, Patricia san and Rafael san. SHIN.
Mr. Shin is the best tour guide we have while in Japan. He is very accommodating and gives advices, tips and directions for us to enjoy our entire stay in Japan. He even meets with us upon arrival in Tokyo eventhough it is not yet the schedule of our city tour. He really takes time to check on us if we are doing well in Japan. The tour is very informative and worth it. He knows Tagalog also. We highly recommend mr. Shin.
Hi Krishiel san, I am very thankful to have been a Tokyo tour guide for your nice family. Even it was cold day, thanks to a perfect weather with blue sky in Shibuya, Odaiba-waterfront, Tokyo Bay cruise, and Asakusa, they were good memories for us to visit and experiences many things. I hope Tokyo trip this time remains on your mind as a wonderful memories of Japan. And I also hope happiness for all of you new year 2018 from my heart. Hopefully see you again in a cherry blossom season, in April. Maraming salamat ! SHIN
It was a fantastic day trip with Mr Shin! He was very patient and accommodating with us. Even though my parents who are not proficient in English were comfortable in communicating with him. He even helped us in booking of the transportation for the rest of my trip. It was really thoughtful of him and we enjoyed his company. We would highly recommend him as a tour guide!
I am pleased to know that you perfectly accomplished all your tour in Japan. And I really appreciate the nice review from you. Actually I was concerned about the weather condition, but it was just waste of worry, and our day was very perfect condition with shining blue sky. The autumn leaves in Osaka that we observed is the best one I have ever experienced. I truly wish the happiness and prosperity for all your family. See you hopefully again in spring cherry blossom season. Thank you so much again, Melinda san!
From the moment we booked our tour, Shin contacted me to ensure we had the perfect itinerary. It was our first time in Kyoto and we wanted to see as much as possible! He even suggested some temples that were lesser known. He is fantastic! He was able to even keep our two children (ages 9 and 11) entertained and interested. We were all so thankful to have him as our guide, instead of trying to “wing it” on our own. Shin even helped us plan our itinerary for the following day to Nara. Highly recommend him!
I am very happy to have such a wonderful review, Natalie san. I’d like to say many thanks because you gave me a great moment to share precious time in Kyoto. What’s more, when seeing friendly family, I really feel how important family members have wonderful moments. I was so moved! And I am sure lots of memorable scenery such as bamboo forest, wild monkey park, Fushimi-inari shrine, Shin-nyodo temple and Nishiki food street etc. will be staying forever in my mind as unforgettable memories. I wish your happiness from my heart. Thank you again ! SHIN
Shin you are amazing - form Temples To Shrines, guidance and knowledge helping up book our tickets and advising us on directions, to taking us to this beautiful little bakery - it clearly shows that you enjoy what you do. Anyone going to Kyoto I would highly recommend you book Shin as your guide. If you ever come to Cairns North Queensland we would like to return the favour. Best wishes to you and your family. Jo
Thank you very much for your nice message Jo san. I am very happy to meet friendly guest like you ! Yes as you mention, there are a lot of little but tasty off the beaten track shops and restaurants on the street of Kyoto. It is my pleasure to introduce them to my guests over the world. As I stated, Queensland is familiar to me because Japanese steel companies have been using plenty of imported quality coal from Australia as well as delicious wine. I am looking forward to seeing you again in Cairns, beautiful place. Warmest regards ! SHIN
I highly recommend SHIN as a tour guide very accomodating, kind, i will never forget him. Even my son wants his service...😀
Thank you very much for your review, Loraine san. I feel so happy to have a nice time with your family in Kyoto and Nara on perfect clear days. I am sure your kid had a big fun with friendly deer in Nara park and funny monkeys in Arashiyama wild forest. Please remind the good seasons, March and April are also very nice with beautiful cherry blossom as well as autumn color in October. So I'm looking forward to seeing you again !
Had a great time in Tokyo for first time, thanks greatly to our fantastic guide Shin. He met us at our hotel promptly if not early and took us around Tokyo through public transportation that if we were doing it by ourselves will take us forever to learn with many mistakes.Shin took care of all the details and made sure that we made it to our ship to check in on time. We started as strangers meeting face to face in a foreign land and parted us friends. Looking forward to seeing more of Japan in the future, hopefully with Shin.
Thank you so much for giving me wonderful memories and nice review. I feel so happy that you could enjoy whole traveling schedule in Japan. Remembering our day, I never forget your big gentle smile on the hotel lobby just like we already knew each other for a long time. As you now say, there are lots of nice places in Japan season to season. Besides Tokyo, for example, Kyoto,Osaka and Nara are providing attractive must-see spots. I really appreciate if we could go together someday. Once again, thank you very much, maraming salamat and Aloha, Elvira san and Virgil san !
I can not express how above and beyond Shin went for us. He was truly far more than a guide in every aspect. I have toured with more than a hundred or more guides over the years (no exaggeration) and Shin really separates himself from the rest. From the moment we contacted him he was responsive and helpful. He took care of things for us in other cities in which we already had a guide. It was unreal as he was picking up the slack for other guides and didn't want or expect anything in additional return. He is just that sort of man whom really cares for his guests and wants to help people when ever he can. Byond all of his inherent traits Shin possesses great logistical organization and a fantastic depth of local historical knowledge for where he is guiding. He moves as fast or as paced as anyone may need and trust me we were super impressed by how quickly he could move when we had to catch a tour boat before it took off (we had to catch up to him lol). Above and beyond is all I can say as he did so much before we arrived and so much after we left him (he kept checking on my flights during a typhoon when even my current guide had no desire to do this). Shin was an absolute pleasure to be with all day and my only regret is that we did not hire him for guiding in some of the other places we went (as we were already obligated to prior bookings). You would be doing a MAJOR disservice to yourself if you choose any other guide in the places he does tours as he simply is the best. Thank you Shin for making another one of our Japan trips so memorable, for it is people like you that always keep us coming back. Sincerely, Everett & Yana
Hi Everett san, thank you very much for the nice review! Firstly I would like to say thank you that you had visited Japan, and hired me this time. And secondly I have to really appreciate your very nice comment. Honestly speaking I feel a little bit shy to read review (lol). But your words surely encourage me very much. At first when you texted me about your plan of activities in Japan, I truly admired that you have in-depth knowledge and warm mind related with the Japanese culture and history from the bottom of your heart . For example, in addition to Nikko, the word of Mt.Koya you told me was surprisingly fresh to me, because the most tourists tend generally to visit well-known popular tourist spots near the big city. Together with Mt.Koya, our place, Nikko, is also one of the most sacred places. They are leaving the Buddhism atmosphere in the deep cedar trees and occupy themselves as a spiritual center of Japan. So I felt super happy because foreign tourist like you come out and sincerely try to experience the hidden cultural gem as well as Sake taste (lol). Once again please let me say many thanks of sharing wonderful time in Nikko. I truly wish the happiness for Everett san and Yana san, and I believe guardian Gods, Nioh will protect all of you forever! Thank you very much and Спасибо ! SHIN
My family and I cannot thank Shin-san enough. He has been amazing prior to, during and after our tour. He puts his whole heart into and goes the extra mile in everything he does! He planned the perfect Hakone tour for us, making sure we have an open communication, and clearing any doubt we may have about our itinerary. He goes out of his way to ensure that we have the best experience of our tour, wherever it may be. My mother has difficulty walking long distances, and he was always mindful that she didn't get too tired during our tour. Truly, our Hakone trip would not be the same without his extraordinary guidance and help. We also had the good fortune of traveling to Kyoto, his hometown, with him, as our day of departure to Kyoto coincided. He even accompanied us to our hotel in Kyoto, so that we will not get lost and our mother can rest quickly. I cannot believe the luck we had to meet such a good person with such a heart of gold! We are very grateful to Shin-san. We are very glad that we met not just an amazing tour guide, but also made a wonderful friend. Thank you so much Shin-san, we wish you all the very best for all your endeavours!
Hi Ana san. I really appreciate your warmhearted review for our Hakone trip. And I am very glad that I could accompany with you and your family as a first Japan trip. I am very sorry we couldn't all places you requested me in Hakone area due to time schedule. However I am sure, all places we visited satisfied you, and especially ONSEN, hot spring villa at Hakone-Yumoto brought relaxing time to all of you. I think your mom could rejuvenate by soaking in open air bath surrounding by greenery beautiful nature. I'd like to reminisce our foot print in Hakone trip. 1. Tozan- Tesudo, mountain railway from Odawa to Gora. 2. Cable car from Gora to Sounzan. 3. Rope way from Sounzan to Owakudani volcanic dynamic valley with special black eggs. 4. Rope way again from Owakudani to Togendai like sky walking. 5.Take a pirate cruise of Lake Ashi from Togendai pier to Motohakone pier. 6. Visit Hakone-shrine with vermilion red torii-gate in the waterfront. 7. Take a bus to Hakone-Yumoto ONSEN area. 8. Relaxation at ONSEN, hot spring. Mt. Fuji didn't show herself before us but we fully enjoyed beautiful mountain and lake. And surprisingly on the next day we took a same Shinkansen, bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto. We had a nice time again on the train and we talked about Kyoto, my hometown. Please let me say thanks once more for your coming to Japan. I'm looking forward to seeing you again near future, Ana san !
I am very happy that I selected Shin san for my trip to Yokohama. Even prior to engaging his service, I asked multiple questions and Shin san patiently answered all of them in detail. He always replied my emails promptly, at times almost instantly! Once I confirmed his service, I was impressed with Shin's professionalism in providing me with the time schedule and the transportation cost. He took the trouble to include a map of the routes to show the sequence of the tour. I am grateful that Shin provided me with an estimate of the costs of the trip to Yokohama from Shinjuku. This enabled us to prepare extra cash to bring along. Most wonderful of all is that Shin communicated with me via *******s and updated me on the weather prior to our departure date. Being able to contact Shin san easily makes us feel so at home and re-assuring that we have someone in Tokyo to seek help when needed. He offered his time to us and is so kind to reply us whenever we asked him for help. On the way back to our hotel, he went to the extreme to bring us and help us shop for the stuff we needed. We can see from the small actions that make Shin san so spectacular and different! Thank you, Shin san! You are our friend now! Having you made our trip to Tokyo memorable. We hope that you will and bring your family to visit my country soon.
Thank you for nice review, Norah san! I was so glad to guide you in Yokohama and partly in Tokyo. And I was so excited to listen to many interesting stories about Singapore from your family. I felt as if I traveled in your country. In particular it was so nice talking with Ron san about a happy golf game. In fact prior to guide activities, I was thinking over and over again what kind of tour options would be the best for all members through conducting brain simulations. And also as you mention, it must be one of the important factors to show the estimated travel expenses for tourist in the foreign countries. As you stated, I was thankfully given a lot of right questions to the point in a location to location. I am very sure, through these pinpoint-based active conversation, a tour guide will polish and enhance their skills of professionalism. Thank you again, Norah san. In conclusion I truly wish all your families will spend much happier hours in their schools, offices and everyday life. See you again in Singapore and Japan !
I am so glad I selected Shin to be our guide around Tokyo. He was extremely organized, extraordinarily nice, and helped us a great deal. Shin speaks English perfectly, and humbly answered all of my silly questions from everything we were seeing to the ins and outs of the history of Japan. Shin met us at the airport at an hour I wasn't sure any guide would be willing to meet us. He navigated for us through all the public transportation from the airport into Tokyo, around Tokyo, and to another airport. He also helped us store our luggage while we toured around Tokyo, and he did a great job of picking places we would be interested in seeing (not typical tourist spots) and finding good traditional food to eat. My wife and I are looking forward to coming back to Japan and seeing if Shin will be available to be our guide again. To not only see more of Tokyo but also to see some of the other cities of Japan that Shin has lived in and is familiar with. Beautiful, clean, advanced, interesting country, and what a treat to get to have it shown to us by Shin--such a great guy that we are very grateful to, for choosing to spend his day with us. PS It was especially fun getting to see the different types of groceries and having explained to us what we were looking at. PPS I was also surprised the level of coordination that occurred throughout the booking process. I'd highly recommend both TripleLights and Shin.
Hello Bryan san, Thank you for coming to Japan with wife even though it might be tight hours on your schedule. I really appreciate your great review message ! It encourages me very much. Actually we had only half-day but could visit interesting spots in Tokyo. Frankly speaking, I did many trip-simulation on my mind what spots of Tokyo could tickle your taste and interest well. As a result, I chose Meiji-Jingu Shrine, dedicated prominent Emperor, Meiji, because not only from just traditional religious shrine but also well-preserved various kinds of tree like a primeval forest or botanical garden. I feel so happy that you are delighted with the serene and peaceful atmosphere of greenery as an expert of forester. The second place we visited, DEPA-CHIKA, namely fresh foods basement corner of department store in SHIBUYA, where is famous for a faithful HACHI-DOG and five-direction-scramble-intersection by YouTube. Yes as you mention, there are a lot of nice places including many off-the-beaten-track in Japan. I’d like to guide you the places such as Kyoto, Nara and Osaka, western part of Japan next time. Cherry blossom and autumn leaves seasons are so nicer. Please keep TripleLights in mind. In conclusion, I truly hope both of you will live a happy and healthy life. Thank you and see you again someday, Bryan san and Lorin san ! SHIN.
My sister and I booked our tour with Shin having never been to Japan before. Seeing that we were in Tokyo for most of the trip, we wanted to experience the outskirts of the city as well. From the moment we expressed our interest to Shin he was incredibly enthusiastic and helpful. He did everything from sending us fun activity options and detailed itineraries, to thoughtfully sharing the whether predictions and giving us clothing tips in the days prior to our tour. Seeing that we were traveling two hours outside of the city we started our day around 7am. It was very easy to locate Shin as he was promptly sitting in our hotel lobby and we exchanged photos of each other. Shin was as enthusiastic and kind as in his emails. We started our day by taking the bullet train to Hakone and another train up the mountain to the Open Air Museum. Throughout this time my sister and I took advantage of Shin's knowledge and asked him a wide range of questions that he was excited to answer. Everything from how to navigate the subway systems to when the hydrangeas are in bloom. We arrived at the Open Air Museum which was incredibly breathtaking and spent a good amount of time walking around. Shin told us about the outdoor sculptures and showed us the incredible Picasso exhibit within the Museum. He kept us on schedule and we continued on our way up the mountain first by train and then by a very thrilling suspension railway car. It was a semi cloudy day but the views were still Breathtaking. We then took a boat across the beautiful Lake Ashi to a wonderful hidden gem Museum. This traditional Japanese art served as a nice contrast to the more modern work at the Open Air museum. Shin also had a vast knowledge of the Japanese paints - specifically the minerals used to make pigments. In addition to Paintings, this museum had a stunning view of the lake and a nice cafe where we all had some coffee and pastries. Next, we took a short cab to the natural hot springs which are scattered throughout Hakone. Shin made sure to reserve my sister and I a private room in advance so they had everything prepared when we arrived. We spent an hour soaking in the hot spring with a serene view of the forest. The establishment was clean, casual, and peaceful - we left completely rejuvenated. For the final leg of the trip we took the bullet train back to the subway and Shin showed us to our hotel. We arrived exactly on schedule and incredibly satisfied with our action packed day. Shin was the most kind, fun and gracious tour guide we could have asked for. He aloud us to enjoy these incredible experiences, be informed and eliminated all the stress of scheduling and navigation. Furthermore, he was just an incredible person to get to know and gave us a day we will never forget.
Hello Olivia san, I really appreciate your nice review and thank you very much for asking me tour guide. I am sure you brought a lot of good memories to your home in CA. A review is very important for guides from enhancement of guiding skill point of view. Positive comments encourage me to pursue becoming a better tour guide. Seeing your review, I’d like to say thank you very much for the warm-hearted and positive comment in Hakone trip on August 20. Your message makes me so happy. To be honest, until one minute before starting tour I was worried about whether or not you would be satisfied with the itinerary that I conducted. The information that you gave me is so helpful because you suggested that your sister is a professional painter and both of you are interested in the artistic fields. For the day I prayed God /Japanese Shinto Deities/ fine whether, but I’m very sorry Mt.Fuji couldn’t show herself in front of us due to being cloudy. But I am not a rain-bringer so lucky us no shower on a whole day. Our final visiting place in Hakone, hot spring resort house, I am sure you loved it! The natural hot spring made tourist relax and take stress away, even being rejuvenated. I got to know that by seeing your beautiful rosy face. Most Japanese people like ONSEN, hot spring, because it makes us much healthier owing to activating blood circulation through the various curative mineral compositions. I think that calm nature of Hakone gently embraced you surrounding by peaceful forest and spacious waterfront of Lake Ashi. I am looking forward to your another trip in Japan someday, hopefully with your parents and friends together. S’wondeful, S’marvelous, I’m waiting for your coming back to Japan. Have a nice weekend!
Shin was a great guide for the day, he was filled with great facts and history of the area. He even took time to talk about future visits to Japan with other areas to visit based on what he and I spoke about. Good day, highly recommend Shin as a guide.
Hi Joe san, I really appreciate your nice review. I feel so happy to guide you in Hiroshima memorable town. I hope everything will go well with you, and see you again in another beautiful towns of Japan someday. Thank you very much !
Shin was an excellent guide for our short visit to Kyoto. He was very friendly and personable and really went out of his way to make us feel welcome in Japan, even before and after our day trip to Kyoto. He speaks both English and Tagalog fluently, and during our trip even sang Filipino love songs for us! It was easy also to communicate with him through ******* (TripleLights please take note, most if not all Filipinos who travel abroad use *******, but our other guides did not even know what ******* was) so even before we met him he was already sending us pictures of how he looked, pictures of the restaurant we were planning to go to for lunch, and note this, train schedules, not only for our Kyoto day trip, but even after that, train schedules for Nara and pictures of the sites there which I found quite useful as my family had to split up and take different trains that day. So you can see that he really went out of his way! I would highly recommend Shin, not just for Kyoto but also other cities in Kansai area, and would especially recommend him for Filipino travelers. He is one of us and you will see this right from the time he greets you.
Hi Ed san, I really appreciate your nice review and productive comment. I'd like to look back shortly our Kyoto trip. At first we visited Golden Temple dating back to 15century, and after temple we enjoyed a lunch Japanese restaurant, named Kagonoya. After lunch we rode cute railway, named Randen, for stunning bamboo forest of Arashiyama. And in the evening we headed for Nishiki foods market. We could enjoy different kinds of local taste. I am very pleased to sharing unforgettable nice time with you, beautiful wife and smart nice children. To visit a monkey park in Arashiyama and Nijojo castle, please come back to Japan autumn season, November or early December. I'm sure breathtaking colorful leaves will gracefully bless us. And I will sing more Tagalog love songs next time for you Ed san! Maraming salamat po!
SHIN is a great tour guide. He took us on a tour of Kamakura. He is very friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. He was eager to share his insights of the area. I highly recommend him.
Hi Steve san, I really appreciate your nice review. Thank you very much for sharing our precious time. I'm sure that Kamakura strolling left us a lot of nice memories. A colorful rain flower, hydrangea, and plenty of lovely Buddha statues welcomed us with their gentle smile. I am looking forward to seeing you again !
Provided an itinerary for myself and 2 boys, met us at airport and even secured a locker for carry ones. Took us around on tour and even to his favorite restaurant. Thought of taking boys to samari museum which was huge hit for boys. Very thoughtful and thorough guide!!!
Ms. Jennifer, thank you very much for your nice review. I'm so pleased to guide you and share happy time in Tokyo even though it was rush. We didn't have a lot of time, but I look forward to introducing you nice spots more next time. I am sure Max and Ollie will be already good real Samurais with special swords. Thank you so much for coming to Japan!
Mr Shin is an excellent guide. He made our visit to Nara incredible, once his knowledge about the culture, religion, politics and gastronomy are quite impressive. On the top of that, he is also extremely polite and gentil!
Sehor Okamoto san, Muito obrigado! I am really pleased to be given such a nice review. I never forget our wonderful day in deer land, Nara. Tenhna um bom dia! SHIN
