Yuichi-san has been a great help right from the trip preparation. I did not have much time to own research and I relied on Yuichi-san's fantastic suggestions and planning for the itineraries, bus routes & schedules, etc. During the trip, Yuichi kept track of the time to ensure that I did not miss any buses but at the same time not to miss any of the great spots to visit and to take photos. I also enjoyed the cultural and historical information of the places that we visited. Thanks Yuichi-san for making this trip a stress-free one for me right from the planning and on the tour days. Not even the rain/ice/snow at Gokayama and Shirakawago could stop you from ensuring me having a good trip.
Thank you so much for writing quick review, my friend gary-san and Jessica-san. I think I did make every effort to have you spend a pleasant stay in Hokuriku region, partly including a little compensation for your luggage inconvenience in Kanazawa ;) Anyway, I'm glad to hear from you that you've enjoyed the whole itinerary even in unsatisfying weather condition. I love both Indonesia and Singapore. So I would definitely like to visit both countries someday. When that happens, it would be so great to have me as a guest to your countries. Finally, best wishes for two of you and have a pleasant journey afterwards in Japan! Yuichi
Yuichi was very communicative and responsive. We would recommend Yuichi for your personal guide services.
Dear Steven-san, I appreciate your kind compliment! I was really honored to have such a nice family as yours. You made me feel like joining you to travel somewhere as your 3rd son :) Thank you again and best wishes for all!
Yuichi was an amazing addition to our trip. Yuichi spent two days with our party of six and helped us navigate our trip to Takaoka which included a funeral service on Saturday. Yuichi was extremely helpful and informative. He readily became a part of our family. Yuichi was very flexible with his time and was so easy to work for several months before the actual trip. I highly recommend Yuichi for any services that you may need in Takaoka or Toyoma. When we return, we will definitely reconnect with Yuichi!
Hi Lois, so nice to hear from you again! I was absolutely happy to help you to communicate with your precious relatives in Takaoka and bring you to wonderful sight-seeing place such as Amaharashi and Zuiryuji temple. Thank you all for your patronage to our prefecture. If you still miss the taste of Masuzushi, please do not hesitate to visit me in Toyama next time! Finally, Best Wishes for your family members and your precious friend, Valerie.
