Sunny and windy day in Hakone

This was our first time in Hakone. The scenery in Hakone was great and beautiful. Although its a pity that we didn’t manage to do the cruise and ropeway due to strong wind, we still get to have a great view over Lake Ashi and Mount Fuji from Onshi-Hakone Park. We also walked over old imperial roads, visited a replica of a samurai checkpoint, a traditional wood processing. My family was impressed with the craving & the various steps combinations. We also visited the shrine and had to wait a long time to take photos at the famous spot. Aki is professional, patient! He waited together with us, helped us take photos. I have yet to experience a guide that stay and queue with their customers. Lastly, Aki bought us to a traditional tea house. It was a new experience for us. The rice tea was special, ‘creamy’ and has unique taste. Nice!! Thank you very much for a great day, Aki-san. Our family enjoyed the day trip.

Jesslyn P.

Dear Jesslyn, Thank you so much for your fantastic review and kind words!! It was a pleasure to have your family as my guests and to share the beauty of Hakone's nature and culture. I am thrilled you enjoyed the stunning view of Mt. Fuji, the local wooden craft, and the specialty drink, Amasake. I had a wonderful time with your family, too. Thanks for coming to Hakone and having me as your guide! With sincere appreciation, Aki

A Fantastic Way To Start My Stay!

I had an absolutely fantastic time under the guidance of Aki-san, I wasn't completely sure where I wanted to go, so he took me around to lots of wonderful places, and took several pictures for me! He was tremendously helpful, and patient, and has given me many ideas about what I can do and where I'd like to see. He listened to my requests on the fly and was able to offer advice and take me to many places that had exactly what I was looking for. I can't wait for the next tour! ありがとうございました!

An amazing tour of Tokyo with Aki.

This is our first trip to Japan. Honestly, I was bit apprehensive, not knowing the language, big city, etc. However, we couldn't have done better. Aki was the key to a fabulous time. He gave us a good overview the city and in instances he went above and beyond to help us out or direct us to the right sources. We consider himour friend and highly recommend him to anyone visiting Tokyo.
