Japan

I’m so excited to have a chance to show you around my favorite spots in Kanagawa prefecture. I was born in Kanagawa. I spent my whole school life, including university, here in Kanagawa. I worked as a high school English teacher here for 40 years. I love Kanagawa so much. We have many interesting tourist spots, like Hakone, Kamakura, Enoshima and Yokohama. I got my tour guide license in English in 2009. I am still an English teacher. To give an interesting and impressive lesson to young high school students, I’ve learnt and gathered many kinds of information. I also have a license to teach social studies, so I have a wide range of knowledge about Japanese culture and history. I’m sure to provide you an interesting tour.

Hello my guests, I'm Toru, a national licensed tour guide. I've been mainly guiding around Tokyo, Kamakura, Hakone, and Nikko for an individual or small group tourists . I'm living in a town near Narita International Airport. It's often said that one of the characteristics of the Japanese culture is sticking to details and yet tries to conceal its care. It means that there are a pile of unspoken stories behind what you see in Japan. I'm always trying to be an interpreter of those stories and help you enjoy the secrets of Japanese cultures. I'm offering four tour plans of Tokyo, Kamakura, Hakone, and Nikko. I think they are the best plans especially for the first timers to Japan because they're prepared to include all must-see spots in the area. If you are repeaters or interested in the other things or places, please don't hesitate to require what you want. Let's make the best plan for you together. I'm looking forward to seeing you in Japan.

Hi, I am Ryoko, a Oyama Area Licensed Guide Interpreter. Oyama is located in western place in Kanagawa and known as a sacred tourist spot for Edo commoners. Based on my experience working for an international company, I try to respect and have a dialogue with people from various cultures. I offer ideas for visiting spots together, eating, learning, and experiencing Japanese life in Isehara, as well as in the surrounding Kanagawa, and Tokyo area, which are difficult for foreign tourists to enter alone. Also, since I love books so much that I run a reading community in Isehara, we can consider plans that tie in with literature and legends. •Japanese History •Religions(Majored in Islamic culture at university) •Love to find good restaurants &cafe •literature

Hakone Tour Reviews

Great guide

Unfortunately it rained the day of our tour but Yasuro made it enjoyable and was very friendly and knowledgeable

Steven K.

Dear Steven K., Thank you very much for your kind review on me. But I’m sorry that I could not lead you to the hotel entrance at the end of the tour. How was Hakone today? I do hope you have succsessfully seen Mt. Fuji from Lake Ashi. Please take care of your selves as you are supposed to visit Kyoto and Osaka from tomorrow. Have a good day! Best regards, Yasuro

Stress Free Shuttle Service

When traveling to a foreign country, communication can be difficult. That was not the case with this travel company. From the day I made the reservation, communication was excellent.

Thank you for your approval. We are not a travel agency, but we can provide you with more help。

Great day trip to Hakone

Yasu guided us out of Tokyo, to the Hakone area. It was a great day out, and we were able to miss the Tokyo heat for a day. We saw the shrine, the lake, took the ride on a pirate ship, took the cable cars, and saw some tremendous scenery. We got one good look at Mt Fuji, before the clouds closed in. For me the best was the rope cars up through the mist, which was eerie and quite exciting, as well as to see and smell the sulphur mine! It was something unexpected and will last in our memory. Yasu was patient, kind, and adapted the tour to suit that day’s circumstances. We had three tours with Yasu, and he is a great guide. Please book him if you get a chance - it will be a highlight of your trip. We are so glad to have met and to have gotten to know Yasu. Thank you Yasu!

Guy B.

Dear Mr & Mrs Guy B., Thank you for your kind review on me too. I will never foget the scene when the pirate ship appeared far from the foggy side of the lake and we knew that operation of the pirate ship and the ropeway had been resumed. Please take care of yourselves as your journey in Japan will be still going on. And I do hope your sixth grandchild will be borne safely. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro
