Kurobe Gorge Tour

Yuichi was fantastic. He organised this private tour for us. Nothing was a problem. We had a great day, with a knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend Yuichi. If you want to see some spectacular scenery, Kurobe Gorge is worth the effort! We hope to catch up with Yuichi in the future and explore his home town of Toyama on our next trip. Thank you Yuichi for being such a great guide! Debbie, Chris, Jessie and Matt

Dear Debbie, Chris, Jessie and Matt, Thank you so much again for your warmest request on my guiding service! I was truely happy to guide you all to this historically important place in Toyama pref. You can contact me on my webpage anytime you need information about your travel in Japan. In addition to that, you are always welcome to my beautiful hometown, Toyama city. It surely offers amazing experience to you. Finally, I also hope you to spend greatest days with your precious family members in Kanazawa, Tokyo and singapore. Warm regards, Yuichi

Great time at Gokayama, Shirakawago and Kanazawa

Yuichi-san has been a great help right from the trip preparation. I did not have much time to own research and I relied on Yuichi-san's fantastic suggestions and planning for the itineraries, bus routes & schedules, etc. During the trip, Yuichi kept track of the time to ensure that I did not miss any buses but at the same time not to miss any of the great spots to visit and to take photos. I also enjoyed the cultural and historical information of the places that we visited. Thanks Yuichi-san for making this trip a stress-free one for me right from the planning and on the tour days. Not even the rain/ice/snow at Gokayama and Shirakawago could stop you from ensuring me having a good trip.

Gary C.

Thank you so much for writing quick review, my friend gary-san and Jessica-san. I think I did make every effort to have you spend a pleasant stay in Hokuriku region, partly including a little compensation for your luggage inconvenience in Kanazawa ;) Anyway, I'm glad to hear from you that you've enjoyed the whole itinerary even in unsatisfying weather condition. I love both Indonesia and Singapore. So I would definitely like to visit both countries someday. When that happens, it would be so great to have me as a guest to your countries. Finally, best wishes for two of you and have a pleasant journey afterwards in Japan! Yuichi
