I just finished the tour of Kanazawa with Yukari. Although it rained along the way, on and off, it was an incredible tour. Firstly, being able to communicate, I must have talked her ear off. It was so nice to have help with such simple things as taking the bus, paying for things etc. The knowledge was very much appreciated, from the perspective of someone local but also historical. I learnt much more than I would have walking around by myself. History, folklore, tales and more. The garden, I must admit I originally did not care much to see, I could not have been more wrong. It was amazing to see how much thought went into a truly three dimensional space. It’s not just about the plants, the trees or the items placed it’s about the meaning of the spaces and how intelligently it’s all brought together over the course of lifetimes. I would have enjoyed walking through on my own but I am certain it would not have been as special without the knowledge from Yukari. This was just one part of a three part adventure. The samurai district, again, on my own I would have seen maybe half of what we saw and learnt much less. The geisha district as well. It’s like having a backstage pass to something more meaningful than you can imagine. This is why I chose a guide and I was not wrong in that. With Yukari I went places I would not have thought to go, down streets I would not have thought I was allowed to go and most of all acquired an experience I will cherish forever. For that, a huge thank you to Yukari.
Thank you very much for your prompt review. I was able to enjoy myself listening to many stories from you. Also I appreciate that you could enjoy my tour and I am so happy to know that. My kid's and I will definitely try to make sweets which you have taught me in this winter! Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan, too.
Yukari was prepared and was very helpful with my sister’s disability (we had to move around with a wheelchair). The visit to the Geisha’s house was particularly interesting as was to see the artisans of the gold leaf workshop. Thank you!
Thank you very much for your review! I am happy to know that you had enjoyed especially Geisha District and gold leaf. Hope you remember Kanazawa whenever you see something gold!
We had an amazing time on our tour! Yukari is delightful, and very knowledgeable about the area. You will absolutely have a nice time and you'll learn quite a bit.
Thank you very much for the review. I am so pleased to be a part of memories of your trip. Please come visit again!
We had a really fun 1/2 day with Yukari. She was so personable and fun, combined with lots of interesting information. We saw the highlights of Kanazawa and would highly recommend Yukari if you want a great into to this lovely city.
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I also had a great half day with you two. Looking forward to visiting your city someday!
