          Great tour
          Great personalised tour to see the highlights of the city while learning about Japanese culture and history. Our tour guide Naoko did a fantastic job showing us around Tokyo in an efficient manner, while the tour did not feel rushed. Highly recommended for first time visitors or those looking to experience some of the city highlights in a short period.

          Best way to see Tokyo
          This tour is excellent. It is completely customizable, and our guide Nobu was so good at asking us what we liked and what our goals were and developed a fantastic itinerary with our input. We went to Meiji Jingu Shrine, Senso-ji-Temple, Hama rikyu Garden, and an old town out east I believe it was Monzen-Nakacho. We thought it was perfect and Nobu was very informative, very friendly and very helpful. We wish we could give him 10 stars

          Don’t miss Hiroshima!
          I was traveling alone with my 15 year old son, and Yuko was our tour guide. She was THE BEST! This trip was towards the end of our visit to Japan, so we were both pretty tired, but Yuko kept things interesting and at a quick pace — she is a very efficient tour guide and full of energy. My son enjoyed the day as much as I did, which says a lot! Yuko also took us to her favorite restaurant for lunch and to her favorite places for treats on the island. The Hiroshima museum is powerful and part of the day is a very poignant reminder of a horrific day in Japan’s history. So glad I brought my son here.

          Great tour with a great guide
          Sei is an amazing guide. We were a party of 9 with 5 kids and he accommodate everybody. The peace museum tour he guided us through was a very important experience to learn from, and overall it was amazing. Thank you Sei for your patience and sharing your knowledge with us.

          Impeccable experience at Yamagata
          Mr. K Shimizu did a great job being us to Yamadera . He explained to us the history of the temples we visited. Thanks to him for his patience with us. It is a scenic spot really worth visiting. Mr. Shimizu speaks very fluent English facilitating very smooth communication with us. Thanks.

          Great Tour of Sendai's Key Sights
          Riko provided us with a lovely tour of Sendai. She was knowledgeable about her city and made us feel very welcome. We got to see all of the best sights and learned a lot about Sendai and Japan more broadly. We greatly appreciated how she answered our questions, and she also gave us a terrific recommendation where to have lunch.

          Morisan is a very knowledgeable guide. I learned a lot and always felt comfortable. His English is great and unlike many guides seeks clarity when he doesn’t understand what you said. We had a lot of guides and he was one of the best. Highly recommended.

          Terrific Personalized Tour, Patient Guide, Home Run
          We are so grateful for the time with had with Kazu. From the start, he was in touch with us about our specific interests (history, connections to modern-day culture) so that the tour would be meaningful to us. He met us in our hotel lobby in Akasaka which made it super easy for us. We navigated the subway system together (very helpful!) and visited the Meiji Shrine, Imperial Palace gardens, and religious/commercial sites in Asakusa (temple, shops) -- with explanations throughout. Kazu also took a special detour to set us up for success after the tour was over, stopping at another neighborhood (Akihabara) to point out some good anime shops for our son. A great tour, and a great "taste" of Tokyo!

          Hiroshima with Yuko was TOP class 👌🏻
          Yuko is an amazing person. She did not come across as a tour guide. It was more like a friend alongwith us. She knows Hiroshima too well. She was patiently explaining our boys throughout the tour. Thank you Yuko for making Hiroshima a lifelong memory for us !

          Amazing Tour, Amazing Tour Guide
          We had the BEST experience! Our tour guide Taka was awesome! He not only took us to see great tourist spots, but he also took us to hidden gems to avoid the crowds. He found several anime spots for us, arranged a special congratulations desert for my niece and at the end even helped us by our train tickets for the next day. Such a wonderful man, such an amazing day, such a wonderful city! 10 out of 10 experience.

          Bruce Sugano was amazing! He showed us so much - from the different parts of the city to the temple to micro-pig cafe to the best sushi we’ve ever had! His personality and knowledge made for a fun and memorable experience! Highly, highly recommend!

        We had a great time with our guide Tom. When we booked the tour we told him some of the spots we wanted to see, and he provided us with a couple different itineraries to choose from. He was very knowledgeable and personable and it was a great way to explore with a limited timetable. After the tour we were heading to another location and Tom helped us catch a cab and got us on our way!

        The tour was excellent. Our guide Nozomi Yamazaki was amazing. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city. We went thr the fish market, Sapporo television tower, the bell tower and the Ski jump from the Olympics. Each area has a great story that Nozomi shared. I highly recommend this tour with Nozomi.

        Thank you very much for your kind words of positive feedback. I too enjoyed touring Sapporo and telling its unique history of development. Susukino at night was a bonus to the tour as we combed the tiny alleys of the biggest nightlife district north of Tokyo. I hope you enjoyed your day on your own the following day in Sapporo. I trust you enjoyed a nice and cool Sapporo beer at Sapporo beer museum. Cheers, Roy
