About

Hello, I'm Yuichi, an English tour guide in Hokuriku region.
If you are thinking about traveling to historical places
such as Kanazawa, Shirakawa-go and Takayama, I am willing to offer a tour.

I can bring you to those popular destinations
from my base, Toyama city.

These are the examples of my tour:

Kanazawa - Shirakawago - Takayama
Takaoka - Gokayama - Shirakawago - Takayama
Toyama - Tateyama Kurobe Alipne Route - Omachi (Nagano Pref.)

During the tour I like to provide simple explanations about Japanese history,
and small tips for using the Japanese language on your request.

My interests are food, cooking, sake and wine
as well as Japanese novels and movies.
It would be possible to add those tastes to our tour
including a visit to local wineries, movie scenes, etc...

Finally, I will do my best to give you a pleasant stay.
Looking forward to seeing you in Hokuriku!

“ Great time at Gokayama, Shirakawago and Kanazawa ”

Yuichi-san has been a great help right from the trip preparation. I did not have much time to own research and I relied on Yuichi-san's fantastic suggestions and planning for the itineraries, bus routes & schedules, etc. During the trip, Yuichi kept track of the time to ensure that I did not miss any buses but at the same time not to miss any of the great spots to visit and to take photos. I also enjoyed the cultural and historical information of the places that we visited. Thanks Yuichi-san for making this trip a stress-free one for me right from the planning and on the tour days. Not even the rain/ice/snow at Gokayama and Shirakawago could stop you from ensuring me having a good trip.

Yuichi:

Thank you so much for writing quick review, my friend gary-san and Jessica-san. I think I did make every effort to have you spend a pleasant stay in Hokuriku region, partly including a little compensation for your luggage inconvenience in Kanazawa ;) Anyway, I'm glad to hear from you that you've enjoyed the whole itinerary even in unsatisfying weather condition. I love both Indonesia and Singapore. So I would definitely like to visit both countries someday. When that happens, it would be so great to have me as a guest to your countries. Finally, best wishes for two of you and have a pleasant journey afterwards in Japan! Yuichi

“ Shirakawgo Visit ”

Yuichi was very communicative and responsive. We would recommend Yuichi for your personal guide services.

Yuichi:

Dear Steven-san, I appreciate your kind compliment! I was really honored to have such a nice family as yours. You made me feel like joining you to travel somewhere as your 3rd son :) Thank you again and best wishes for all!

“ Trip to Takaoka ”

Yuichi was an amazing addition to our trip. Yuichi spent two days with our party of six and helped us navigate our trip to Takaoka which included a funeral service on Saturday. Yuichi was extremely helpful and informative. He readily became a part of our family. Yuichi was very flexible with his time and was so easy to work for several months before the actual trip. I highly recommend Yuichi for any services that you may need in Takaoka or Toyoma. When we return, we will definitely reconnect with Yuichi!

Yuichi:

Hi Lois, so nice to hear from you again! I was absolutely happy to help you to communicate with your precious relatives in Takaoka and bring you to wonderful sight-seeing place such as Amaharashi and Zuiryuji temple. Thank you all for your patronage to our prefecture. If you still miss the taste of Masuzushi, please do not hesitate to visit me in Toyama next time! Finally, Best Wishes for your family members and your precious friend, Valerie.

“ Not informative ”

We very much liked the tutorial on how to behave in a Shinto shrine. But after that visit, there was very little exchange of information about the places we visited. Nothing said about the Higashiyama Higashi Chaya District. Our guide was more there to help us find the places than tell us about them. The choice of restaurant and the location was very poor. The restaurant was not researched and no reservation was made. We were surprised that the guide did not pick Higashiyama Higashi Chaya District for lunch instead of a fast food place downtown. Poor planning of itinerary.

Yuichi:

Dear Dipika, First of all, I would like thank you for joining my tour and for your warm compliment to my tutorial in Shinto shrine. But after that, unfortunately the oden restaurant I scheduled to go with your group was not open though it said it was on the internet. I had to seriously think about your preferences and special requests on meal. So I really apologize for the inconvenience that happend near Nagamachi area and I will make the most of your review into future good services. Thank you again for your indication.
