I was born and grew up in Wakayama prefecture. Since I was very young, I walked and run by motorcycle and car in the mountain region of Kii peninsula (Wakayama). I learned the nature of Wakayama well it’s tenderness and danger. I wish to make the only one trip for my customers.

There are many natural and historical sites in Wakayama because of its unique geographical nature and the longest history in Japan. You can enjoy various type of trip as ancient road walk, spectacular landscapes of the coastlines, suspension bridges, mountains and hot springs.

Amazing Nachi Falls tour & more on full day car tour!

We had an amazing time w/ Yasuo. He picked us up promptly @ 8am from our hotel and took us to many amazing sights. We had wanted to visit Nachi Falls so Yasuo made many great suggestions to accompany that excursion to fill our day. He gave us lots of info and snacks along the way. Def recommend to anyone exploring the area! Will request him again in the future. ありがとございました、やすおさん!

Yasuo is very helpful and knows the places very well. He took us to see many scenic places and we enjoyed the places he picked for us to have picnic lunch on both days.

Thank you very much for your review. I also enjoyed with you. I’m very proud of Wakayama with great scenic and historical resources. I’m sorry and disappointed the collapse of car road to “Hyakken-Gura”.

Full days tour of the Kumamo Koda. Area.

Yasuo is a very good guide who really knows the area very well. We w ent to several interesting places and towns in addition to the major shrines. Although his English speaking is not very good, his understanding is much better. He understood us and made the tour very good., particularly since we had.done a lot of advance research on this area and did not require much more explanation. Other English speaking tourists might not be as satisfied with his level of English. He is a very smart and nice person. Contact me if you would like additional information.

Yasuo H.

Thank you for your exceeding evaluation for me. I was encouraged by your massage. I will learn English hard. Thank you and have a good trip.
