Well informed tour

Kashima is knowledgeable and have good sense humour. I appreciate very the useful Japanese phrases and vocabulary & information sheet. I find it concise ad very functional.

Ee lin K.

Ee lin san, Thank you very much for your upmost review for me. We enjoyed Mt.Fuji viewing and surrounding beautiful nature spots such as Arakurayama Sengen Park, Ohishi park and Oshino Hakkai. Thanks to your young group happy and energic atmosphere with continuous funny talking, I could join to exchange lots of conversation with your group including various topics for your country and Japan. I hope that you visit Japan again in near future so that I can introduce other nice tour spots in Japan for you. Thanks, Kashima

Fantastic launch pad for further exploring.

Kashima’s tour gave us a wonderful overview of the highlights we wanted to see. He got us into a superb Yakatori restaurant that we would never dare enter on our own. Not only is he a master at navigating the labyrinth of Toyo’s subways and trains but his knowledge of Japanese Cuisine and photography skills are unreal. Throughly enjoyed ourselves.

Chris S.

Chris san, Thank you very much for your upmost review for me. We enjoyed the combination of Japanese traditional atmosphere as Meiji shrine and the most bustling & entertainment area as Harajuku, Omotesando, Shibuya and Shinjuku. I am pleased that you could satisfy the highlights you wanted to see. Also, it is my pleasure that you could start well for your Japan continuous tour by your experience of my guiding of the day. I hope that you continue to enjoy Japan tour. Thanks, Kashima

Perfect in every way

Kashima made everything perfect. He handles our every unusual request. It was the best tour we have ever done.

Joe K.

Joe san, Thank you very much for your upmost review to me. It was very much pleasure for me that you requested me to arrange to learn the actual butchering process and watching the process of making beef to sell for general market at the school of butchery in Gunma prefecture. We could hear and watch the information in detail by the school top person. I am impressed that You and your family are so much professional to ask any questions and learned a lot. I am very much pleased that you could get important information from the school. Also, we visited Kato farm in Saitama prefecture who grows his own feed for the cattle and has won over 100 awards for their beef. We could see free range cows and goats and enjoyed tasting various foods by cow milking. I hope that you and your family continue to enjoy your nice business. Thanks, Kashima

Kobe come to a vital life again from intense earthquake that hit on Jan 17, 1995. Kobe always creates us a resplendent, exotic mood that the cosmopolitan city has. The old foreign settlement where sophisticated modern architecture still remains upper town must be the reason to ferment that atmosphere and give the period of cosmopolitan flavor. At Meriken Wharf, you can hear the whistles of ships and touch cultural history in this city.
