About Tour Guide Yoshiko K.

Hello, my name is Yoshiko Khan. I was born and brought up in Niigata. As we have high mountains, plains, clear rivers, the sea of Japan and islands, you can enjoy diversity of nature and its blessings in each season. Dubbed as a snow country, very patient people in this prefecture have produced many high quality specialties in agriculture, fishery, traditional arts and industry. Enjoy delicious, healthy food and sake here in Niigata. It's only two-hour bullet train ride from Tokyo. I am very much looking forward to seeing you!

Ensuring our Trip to Niigata was Special

From the moment we met Yoshiko she was delightful. She arranged a special tour of the Northern Cultural Museum with a wonderful guide, Mr. Sato. He took us to areas of the museum that many guest do not get to see, conveying personal stories about the museum and the families that founded it making our visit special and beautiful. When Yoshiko found out she and my nephew both loved anime and manga, she went the extra mile to take us to the Niigata Manga Animation museum and to the Japan Anime and Manga (JAM) College for my nephew to see and visit which was unplanned. She found a wonderful box lunch place for my dad and found all the special places and foods of Niigata for us to experience and enjoy. Highly recommend Yoshiko if you visit Niigata!

Thank you, Cori, for your highest rating review on the Niigata day tour. I am so happy to know your enjoyment and excitement, which kindly swept away my concern of not visiting miso factory and Tanaka Sasadango Cafe (though we dropped in a Tanaka Sasaango Branch shop and bought Niigata's specialty of sweet herb dumplings wrapped with broad bamboo leaves). At the Northern Cultural Museum, Mr. Sato's explanation with sense of humor and all the details of his ancestors' stories always gives us a special experience. You brought the good luck of availability of Mr. Sto's and the weather from cats and dogs rain to the sun's coming out on the day, Visiting Manga and Anime places and talking about anime was a lot of fun, wasn't it? I hope you had a great time in Akihabara after that. I am very grateful to your visit to Niigata, especially to your father. I hope you will have some information on your family history sometime later. Thank you for your gifts from the U.S., I will cherish them for the rest of my life.

Exceptional customer focus

Absolute wonderful experience with Yoshiko. My custom tour started 3 months ago in the planning stages. Yoshiko patiently helped over the many changes that the itinerary developed into. She recommended the best transportation option from train arrival to departure and car rental. The day of arrival she met me on train platform, her oral English skills were excellent with virtually no accent. During the tour, her warm, fun loving personality shone through. At the end of the tour, she ensured I got to the correct train platform. Yoshiko also gave good help and advice that will help for the rest of my stay in Japan. My whole experience with Yoshiko from planning to day of tour was 100% positive.

David, Thank you so much for your warmhearted compliment. I respect your deep affection for your ancestors and uncle. Because of your wonderful personality, I could meet and contact all the kind and compassionate people. Even when I called each and every Kusakabe one after another, they didn’t feel suspicious but got sympathized with you and me. Please take Shuji Kusakabe’s address and phone number with you on 31st. If you should lose that, tell Go to dial 104 and look for the phone number of Shuji Kusakabe living in Numagasaku. I hope you will have another unforgettable experience in Nihonmatsu. I am so grateful to you and Tadashi and also everyone else involved in this tour. Please say hello to your family for me.

Dinner With Geigi

A Meeting with Geigi in Niigata

I have been hoping to interact with the Geigi of Japan, and Niigata is a good place to start. For this purpose, I have made the reservation of the restaurant, very helpfully, Yoshiko san has helped me confirm with the restaurant. On the day of the appointment, she waited for me on the station platform and made sure I don't get lost. She waited for me to let me complete some of my work, led me to a local liquor store for some good sake. and brought me to the restaurant. Over in the time, she frequently explained to me some local excursions and historical facts. When we got to the restaurant, she also helped in explaining the situation, translating the interactions, and most of all, immersed and enjoyed herself in the experience. She often brought in some insights and historical facts to make conversations more interesting and brought it to a higher level. Yoshiko san has been very helpful, attentive and caring. She genuinely caters my needs and has made the experience best suit my requests. She also has extremely well English conversation skills, which makes it essential for people who are not familiar with Japanese. I highly recommend her to anyone that wishes to go around the Niigata with the help of a friendly local.

Thank you, Phillip, for your compliment to me. It was such an experience to talk with geigis and see their dances right before us. I was so much amazed by your knowledge on Japan. It was the very first time to see a person with profound understanding of our history and culture as old as Jomon period or Japanese prehistory. I learned a lot from you and geigis. I know those beautiful Furumachi geigis had a wonderful time with you too. Please have enough rest after that bullet tour. You must have learned a lot in that short period of traveling Japan. Please have more time in Niigata next. I would love to show you around more then. Thank you again for coming all the way to Niigata.
