My family and I had a wonderful day with Yasuko in Shimizu. We would 100% recommend her as a tour guide, she was very well organised and adaptable to our needs and always very responsive!
Thank you so much for your good review. I'm really happy to hear that Ellie and your family enjoyed the tour. Especially, had a tea leaves picking experience, and could see a view of Mt.Fuji at Miho pine grove. I appreciate your cooperation. Enjoy the rest of your cruise trip in Japan.
We had a day at Shimizu, Shizouka with Moto and it was absolutely pleasant. Being native to areas around Mt Fuji viewing sites, he facilitated the tour well, with added knowledge about the ritualistic and also technical aspects of appreciating the town and Mt Fuji. He also brought us to some of the places that were outside of our requested itinerary such as the Fujisan Hongu Sengen-Taisha Shrine and a few other places. These places were intendedly added by Moto so that we are able to appreciate the surrounding and understand the ascent of Mt Fuji in a wholistic way. What initiative, amazing! The driver that Moto arranged for us was extremely kind, safe and reliable. He would even stop by certain places when he sense that we would like to snap a shot. When we thought we would miss our last stop at nihondaira observatory due to limited time on our itinerary, Moto and the driver stretched our itinerary to ensure we could visit the place before going back to our cruise. We were really touched by their sincerity and effort to go the extra mile for us. All in all, I would rate Moto 6 stars if possible and please be assured to have him as your guide in Japan.
Hi Jakob san, Thank you for so much detailed and praising review! Also, I spent a lovely day with you two. I appreciated your assistance to succeed the tour! I hope to see you again soon. When are you coming next? With my all regards. Moto
very friendly and patience, responsible tour guide
Michelle san Thank you so much for a good review. I'm delighted to hear that you all enjoyed my tour. It was quite a hot day, but you all were kind and cooperative. I hope you would be back in spring or fall sometime in the future. Yasuko
Our guide Yasuko was wonderful. She communicated timely and often leading up to our trip giving us confidence she would show up. She arrived early and was waiting for us with a perfectly planned itinerary. She said it would take 8 hours and return by 4pm. We arrived back at 4:02pm. She prepurchased all train and Shinkansen tickets which got us to private tours of a tea plantation, sake factory and wonderful authentic Japanese lunch. It couldn’t have been any better and Yasuko made our day great. Hope to see her again. Matane..
Janet san & Rick san, thank you so much for the review of my tour. Luckily, we could see the views of Mt. Fuji often. I'm really happy to hear that you two had fun visiting the Fujinomiya area. Hope to see you in the future sometime. Enjoy your stay in Japan. Thanks again.
