Aboshi and Tatsuno tour

Noboru-san was a fantastic guide! He arranged our tour of my grandmother’s town of Aboshi, took us around the major sites, and also fit in a tour of Tatsuno castle, samurai residence, and soy sauce museum. I would love to arrange a tour with him again when we return to Himeji one day!

Junko T.

Thank you very much for your nice review. I’m so happy to know that you enjoyed my tour very much. I also had a very wonderful time with you and your son! Looking forward to seeing you and your family next time you come back to Japan! Noboru

A fantastic and cultural day trip to Himeji

We had a fantastic private day trip with our wonderful guide Kenzo to explore the Himeji castle; gardens and suspension bridge Highly recommenced and informative, we never felt rushed and enjoyed being guided seemlessly through all the stations along route to the castle and back to Osaka downtown without having to worry about what line to take- very highly recommended!

Lee S.

Lee-san, Thank you for your great review of our tour. With your party cooperation we managed to conduct our fascinating tour enjoyably almost on schedule. I also enjoyed myself spending a wonderful time with your party. Thank you again for joining my tour! Kenji
