For this Nagoya sightseeing, you only have to pay 500 yen coin for transportation fee a day. Sightseeing tour route bus takes you to every nice spot for sightseeing. At first, you can enjoy experiencing of making folding fan. It's so interesting because a shop owner, a master of making folding fan teaches you how to make fan so politely. Of course, you can take it to your country as a good souvenir! Then, you visit Nagoya Castle and Tokugawaen Garden. The castle has a magnificent main palace, so you can see amazing Japanese craftsmanship there. Ninja, or Japanese old cool spy and famous samurai, such as Oda Nobunaga and Tokugawa Ieyasu walk around the castle, so you can take pictures with them and talk to them in English. Surprising to say, they all can speak English so fluently. You also enjoy Tokugawaen Garden. It was used as a real garden for retired second Owari(old name for Nagoya) feudal domain castle lord. I think it would be a good idea to have lunch at a Japanese restaurant adjacent to the garden or the castle. In Sakae, you can see TV tower and unique modern monument, we call it "Aqua-Walk". Let's enjoy samurai culture in Nagoya on route bus!!

We (2 adults) spent two days with Yuriko in Osaka area, visiting Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. Yuriko is a knowledgeable and friendly person and we had great time. I am only sorry for allocating only two days for the area. If it is your first time to Osaka, I suggest you allocate – 2-3 days for Kyoto, 1 day for Nara and 2 days for Osaka.
Dear Gal, Thank you for your good review and nice comment. You’re also very friendly and your mom, Hana is so kind and cheerful. As you said, Kyoto, Nara and Osaka have lot of places to visit. I hope you will come to Japan again and please enjoy your stay in Japan! Yuriko
Professional, excellent information about the area and sights. A pleasant person to work with, we had great time with Yuriko and enjoyed the experience.
Dear Sheharyar, Thank you so much for such a nice review and kind words. I also had a wonderful time with you and your wife. Arashiyama was its best season for autumn leaves viewing, wasn’t it? Though it was so crowded, it was fun for me to see both of you enjoying beautiful Arashiyama. In Nijo Castle, we had a very rare chance to see imperial style tea ceremony. It was fantastic and elegant!! During a day, the weather was nice and the driver, Mr. Uchida was great. Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful time and delicious sweet. I wish you all the best. Sincerely yours, Yuriko
Having a rough outline for what we wanted to do, Yuriko helped make our experience really great! One of our group members was not feeling well and needed to return to the hotel. Yuriko helped get a cab due to the language barrier and the rest of the group was able to continue the tour of Kyoto.
Dear Phyllis, Thank you for such a good review and warm comments. I was so happy to see you enjoying autumn beautiful view in Arashiyama and Kinkakuji Temple. And it was fun for me to chat with you during lunch time. I hope you will have another wonderful day in Tokyo today. Please give my best wishes to Michaele. Best regards, Yuriko
Yuriko was fantastic! Always on time, excellent knowledge of the history of Kyoto and so polite. It was a pleasure spending time with her. Thank you Yuriko. Greeting from Stella and Evris from Greece!
Hi!! Thank you for your good review, Stella and Evris. I also had a wonderful time with you. I could also learn a lot from you about your beautiful country, Greece. Chatting with you at a coffee shop and having chance to talk with a cute junior high school girl on the subway train were so pleasant time for us, weren't they? I am very sorry to cause you a lot of walking. I wish both of you luck and happiness. Thank you. Yuriko
