Thank you Yoshi san for your expertise in guiding us. Without your local knowledge we would not have enjoyed our day out as much and would have never known about the local places to visit and eat. The little place in Ginza we are at lunchtime was amazing. It was spectacular tempura. Our walk through Kagarusaka and the geisha district was fascinating and the Tsukiji Fish Market would so much better with you as our guide. We learnt so much and would hesitate to recommend Yoshi san. Thank you
It was a fun to walk and chat with you Kate san, Paula san, Zoe san and Sack san as it reminded me of the days when my children were about the same ages as yours. I hope you and your family will be met with sufficient amount of snow in your ski-resort in Jyo-shinetsu area next ten days.
Takano has has been able to flexibly organize our tour last minute around weather and transportation constraints and even arrange for the first snow on top of Mount Fuji!
I did also enjoyed the view of snow-covered Mt.Fuji from the top of Mt.Takao with you and your family from Europe. Please enjoy autumn in Japan.
Very knowledgeable on sake making and arranged visit to authentic places. Thank you!
Thank you for visiting local 180-year old soy source and miso brewery owned/operated by my junior-high & high scool classmate in Settaya district of Nagaoka city. I am sure that you and your friend have become two of the most knowledgeable Singaporean women in fermentation products of Japan. Will send you photos later.
The half day we spent with Yoshiro Takano was truly one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. He listened to what was most important to us and accommodated our needs. He even guided us on how to use the train system. We were extremely pleased that we had him for a guide. I would definitely recommend booking with him.
I also enjoyed talking with Harry san and Charlene san. I am sure that your grandchildren are very happy with the souvenirs both of you have carefully chosen at Akagi Shrine in Kagurazaka.
