public transportation fee ( when your hotel is located in Dogo, the total amout is 520 yen per person.)

Important Information

I can guide you at other areas in Shikoku, if you would burden my travel expenses. The expenses are, for example, 8,000 yen at Kochi.

If you are traveling in a group consisting of several persons, my proposed guide package would be meaningful. On the way to your hotel, you can ask me whatever you want to know, like how to get to reach the place you will visit in the city. I can tell you what I know as much as possible. If the hotel is located rather far from a bus stop or tram's station, there is a possibility for us to use a taxi. But even in such a case, taxi fare will not be so expensive (within 1,000 yen, mostly about 700 yen).

Cancellation Policy

  • Free cancellation - 8 days prior to meeting time
  • 50% Refund - 3 to 7 days prior to meeting time
  • No Refund - Within 2 day(s) prior to meeting time

Historical View of Matsuyama

We had a great guided tour given by Kaz in Matsuyama. He had a challenge of making the tour interesting for teenagers all the way up to a 79 year old!.. He met the challenge with great enthusiasm, and as a result we saw parts of Matsuyama that we would not have seen on our own, I believe not even some locals know what we experienced. Thanks Kaz!

Kaz (和夫)

Thank you for your message to me, Simon. I also had a good time with you and your family members. What you were interested in led to us to a local sake brewer, which began its operation 1bout 120 years ago, and to a cozy garden of the most prestigios inn hotel in Matsuyama with a history of about 400 years. These are the spots they don't visit in a usual tour. As you said, among local people there are few who are so aware of these as you are. I hope you will come to Japan again some day in the future. Finally, please send my regards to your family. Thank you very much again, Simon !

Matsuyama & surrounds

Kaz was very helpful, reliable, well informed and responsive. A pleasure to have as a personal guide in unknown territory.

Kaz (和夫)

Thank you very much, Bob. I think you could stay in Ehime at a good time becuase it was just around the autumn festival day in Matsuyama. I hope you will visit Shikoku again in the future.

Kochi Castle, Buddhist temple, beach

We had an awesome time with Kaz. We were able to see quite a lot and Kaz was very informative about the places we visited. Highly recommend!

Kaz (和夫)

Thank you very much for your message, Chelsea. The tour was not a long one,a half-day tour, but I think you could experience good places in Kochi. Now a big typhoon is attacking Japan. It is lucky for you that you could avoid it. The T-shirt your mother gave me at the pier suits very well. Please send my best regards to her. I would like to say again, thank you very much for having a good time with me.
