Nagano Tour Reviews

Takeshi is fantastic!

We were looking for a knowledgeable guide for Nagano and Matsumoto and Takeshi was everything we wanted. His knowledge of Japanese history and culture is very impressive. His English is great (worked in the US for several years). We booked him for a day each in Nagano and Matsumoto. In Nagano, he took us to temples and shrines we would have missed on our own. In Matsumoto, he was the perfect guide for Matsumoto castle, which is a must see (one of very few original castles left in Japan). He is also a very nice guy, with a sense of humor. He chose a great restaurant for lunch and recommended restaurants for our dinner. Highly recommended if you are serious about seeing Nagano and Matsumoto. Kent and Luca

Amazing Adventures, Great Guide

We had an a really great time meeting Takeshi and getting to travel through Masumoto and Nagano. He was knowledgeable about the locations we traveled to, and ensured that any time we had (such as waiting for the restaurant) could be used to experience more of the city. We have a dietary restriction and he also helped us find an amazing restaurant! He helped pass the time in the line to get into the castle with information about the area's history, and introduced us to many amazing shops, sights, and quiet gardens we would have otherwise missed.
