A very observant person

Mr Yoshi had accommodated us in many ways and made sure we had a wonderful time in Japan. He gave the group a very personal touch in the planning of his tour, understanding the like and dislike of the group. Even when the change of season did not show the scenery in good view, he will ensure you do not miss a single thing with photos that showcase the location at its best, and it also showcase the level of preparedness Mr Yoshi takes. We are also loving all his favourite restaurants and recommendation, a true foodie!!!

Yoshi S.
