Kochi Golden Tour

Kochi

A great day touring Kochi with Hideo!

We had a lovely day touring the city of Kochi with Hideo Y. He is a delightful man and was very knowledgeable about all of the places we visited. There were 9 in our party with kids aging from 10-17. We had a micro bus and that was a great way to get around. We started at Kochi Castle then went to Katsurahama Beach and Ryogado Cave. We enjoyed each of the locations and Hideo did an amazing job educating us while keeping the kids engaged. I highly recommend Hideo, he was definitely a highlight for our trip.

Sherry C.

I'm very glad to have your wonderfl review. You visited the castle for the first time. Kochi castle has 4 stories outside but 6 floors inside. We saw iron spikes on the top of stone walls that block enemies from climbing up for the defense. Ryugado cave is one of the 3 biggest limestone caves in Japan. We could enjoy sightseing cave such as Jellyfish Stone, Thousand pillars, Memorial Waterfall and the like. We had good exercises on that day. We walked up and down many stairs in the castle and the cave. Your kids were alive and kicking. I wish you and your family all the best.

Let's Enjoy A Japanese Baseball Game!!

Osaka
6 hours

Excellent Experience

Hideo was a great guide. He secured game tickets for us before we arrived in Japan. He was prompt and met us at our hotel on time. After navigating us to the stadium and our seats, he provided insight into the traditions of Japanese baseball. At the end of the game, he led us back to our hotel.

Joel M.

I'm very happy to receive you excellent review. I'm sure you enjoyed Jaoanaese baseball game. Before the game, supporter team show its dance. Everytime the team get a score, fans begin to sing the fight song. When the games won come close, fans call "one more plyer" "One more ball." Finally fans made a big chorus "Banzai" and the fight song again. I'm sure you had a great experience how to enjoy Japanese baseball. I wish you and all your family good health and happiness.

Kyoto Tour

Hideo was a fantastic guide for our recent visit to both Hakone and Kyoto. He was very knowledgeable and flexible as we had to make a lot of last minute modifications to accommodate our travel and dinner plans. It was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a great guide.

Dave W.

Thank you for your excellent review. In Hakone we could enjoy 4 different vehicles such as tozan train, cable car, ropeway, and pirate ship. At Owakudani, we could watch volcanic smoke rising up. In Kyoto we "were blessed with good weather. Your child could easily lift up a magical round stone called Omokaruishi" in Fushimi lnari Taisha. I'm sure his dream will soon come true. I wish you and your family all the best.
