Yuki is awesome!!

I just had one day in Tokyo and a tour with him was the ideal way to spend it! He has an abundance of knowledge about Japanese history and even brought an iPad with some supplemental documents and videos. I hope to have Yuki as a guide when I come back to Japan

Yuki K.

Dear Dan, Thank you for taking time for writing the review of my Tokyo half day tour. We visited Meiji Shrine where we saw a wedding ceremony and have a ramen near the Imperial Palace. I liked the soup of the ramen that was very warm. Then walked around the east garden of the palace during the best time of a winter afternoon. I wondered you didn't wear any coat, but it was good you enjoyed walking. Please come again for the other places in Japan. Yuki

Trip to Kyoto from Tokyo

Yuki was an excellent, knowledgeable and versatile guide. Highly recommended. Thank you

Yuki K.

Dear Nicolas, Thank you for writing the review of my tour. We visited most of must see places in Kyoto such as Fushimi Shrine, Sanjyusangen-do Temple, Goldentemple , Bamboo Forest, Tenryu-ji Temple and in addition, the pottery shop your son asked to visit, in a day trip from Tokyo. It was a busy tour but the speed of the Shinkansen and use of taxies when effective made this possible. Please visit Japan again with your wife who loves Japanese gardens! Yuki

Scenic Yokohama, 4 hours

Yokohama

Yokohama is a beautiful harbor city with mix of historical and modern buildings, and Chinatown with its genuine Chinese flavors .Excellent views and plenty of photo opps. It's just only 30 minutes away from Tokyo by train. Tour A is a walking tour with some options. Tour B (Sankeien Garden) is highly recommended if you're not going to either Kamakura or Kyoto. Combination of A & B is available. See you in Yokohama!
