Kanagawa Tour Guide - Kaneo U.

Kaneo U.

4.98 / 5
(47 reviews)

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.                                                                                                                                 

Chiba Tour Guide - Toru K.

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.

Kanagawa Tour Guide - Takao M.

4.47 / 5
(15 reviews)

Hi, I'm Takao Mizushima. I like walking with my friends in the mountains, along rivers and beaches, and visiting historical places and museums. Usually, after enjoying these places, we take a dip in hot springs and drink beer. As a guide, however, I'll take up places easy to walk around. I assume not many people from abroad are prepared for sweating activities. If you like, though, I can modify my plan, connecting with a short hiking, hot bath and a drinking place.

Kon-ni-chi-wa. Hello! I'm Kaori, having lived in Tokyo for more than 20 years since I got married with a photographer who lives here. I'm originally from Shizuoka prefecture which has Mt.Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan. I took 2 working-holiday-visa stays in my younger days. One is in Toronto, Canada, and another is Australia touring by motorcycle. One year respectively. I love travel both international and domestic, especially by motorcycle. That's why I love helping individual travelers rather than normal package tours, cause I myself love travel freely. I love nature, gardens, trekking, greenery, cycling and motorcycle. I love to take you to the off-the-beaten tracks where I love in Tokyo. As a national government licensed guide, I've got deep knowledge of Japanese culture and history. I really enjoy talking about Japanese way of life with people from different cultures. But I'm so flexible that I don't bother if you're not so interested in. We see what you like and talk what you are interested in. That's my style. If you don't know what to want, I can help you with that. I'm outgoing, ( but organized pretty well!), very easy to get along with anybody, including small kids to teenagers. Can't wait to see you soon!

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

Hello! I'm Leandra, and I'm stoked to be your guide as we dive into Japan. With seven years under my belt living here, I've become your trusted source for all things related to exploring this amazing country. Whether it's navigating the bustling city streets or trekking through scenic nature trails, I've got you covered. I have extensive experience guiding excursions through mountains, inner city hidden gems, underground music scenes, and scenic day trips in the vicinity of Tokyo. When I'm not guiding, you can catch me indulging in my hobbies of digging into Japanese history, hitting up local shrines, lacing up my running shoes for a jog, scouting out new restaurants, or hitting the trails for a hike. Originally from sunny SoCal, my roots stretch back to both Japanese and Mexican heritage, with a sprinkle of samurai lineage thrown in for good measure. So, if you're ready to dive into the real Japan, away from the tourist traps, join me for an adventure you won't soon forget. Let's do this!

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
