Hello, I'm Yoji, based in Kanazawa. I spent my formative years in Kanazawa and pursued my master's degree in the United States. Having lived in Washington D.C. and California for six years, I then resided and worked in China and various Southeast Asian countries. My passion lies in exploring new destinations and connecting with people worldwide. Now, it's my turn to extend the same hospitality I've received to you. I specialize in crafting personalized tours tailored to your interests and preferences. If you're a food enthusiast, you've come to the right place. For those seeking to delve into Japan's rich history and culture, I highly recommend joining my full-day tour in Kanazawa. Additionally, I offer tours to Shirakawago and Takayama. Let's embark on an unforgettable journey together.

Hello, everyone! I'm Lucy, and I'm thrilled to share a bit about myself with you. Originally hailing from the picturesque south of France, my life's journey has woven through the landscapes of both France and Germany, primarily within the realm of fashion and costume design. My heart, however, found its home in the enchanting city of Kanazawa when my husband's career led us here in 2019. Since then, this city has not only become my adopted home, but it's a place I've grown to adore. Now, guiding has become a source of immense joy for me. I cherish the opportunity to meet people from all corners of the world, sharing my knowledge about this incredible city and its cultural tapestry. Beyond the guided tours, my free time is often spent in exploration. Whether uncovering hidden gems in the surroundings or immersing myself in the world of pottery, crafts or hiking. I'm here not just to guide but also to connect, learn, and share the beauty I've discovered in Kanazawa. Looking forward to our journeys together!

Hello! My name is Keiichi. Please call me Kei. I was born and raised in Joetsu City, located in the southern part of Niigata prefecture. Joetsu was the former capital city of Echigo Province until the mid 19th century. It has a lot of historic sites and scenic spots, and most of all good people. I love my city very much. I worked for the Joetsu City office for over thirty years. During my time there, I was in charge of international relations for about ten years. After retiring from the office, I began working as a licensed tour guide. I am very excited to introduce my city to people all over the world.

Hello, I'm Yuichi, an English tour guide in Hokuriku region. If you are thinking about traveling to historical places such as Kanazawa, Shirakawa-go and Takayama, I am willing to offer a tour. I can bring you to those popular destinations from my base, Toyama city. These are the examples of my tour: Kanazawa - Shirakawago - Takayama Takaoka - Gokayama - Shirakawago - Takayama Toyama - Tateyama Kurobe Alipne Route - Omachi (Nagano Pref.) During the tour I like to provide simple explanations about Japanese history, and small tips for using the Japanese language on your request. My interests are food, cooking, sake and wine as well as Japanese novels and movies. It would be possible to add those tastes to our tour including a visit to local wineries, movie scenes, etc... Finally, I will do my best to give you a pleasant stay. Looking forward to seeing you in Hokuriku!

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

Debbie  P.

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
