Tetsuya T. Japan Tour Reviews

Amazing trip to Nakasendo trail

Tetsuya was very helpful from the get go. He make sure to gather as much information about the trip as possible to ensure that the day will run smoothly. He provided information and alternatives throughout the day, and is very knowledgeable about the area. He made sure the trip was amazing and it was! We will definitely come back and have Tetsuya san guide around the area!

Laura A.

Laura-san, Thank you very much for warm and wonderful message. It has been quite a while to walk through Magome mountain pass after covid-19. Weather was unstable, sometimes rain and sometimes cloudy. But anyway I am gland that everything went smoothly and had chances to see you around in those areas. In your comment, the trip was amazing. Thankful to you but I have to tell you actually your kids were amazing because they walked through Magome mountain pass that spans 8 km distance in mountain road without delay. Every time I answered questions from local people and even drivers how to get to Tsumago, they all were surprised at such young children walked through the road. You all helped me to get success in this tour. Once again thank you very much for your ordering this tour and hope to come back Japan again to view other areas, hopefully, with my guiding. Till then, good luck.

Great guide!

The tour with Tetsuya-San was great! The Ise shrines are very beautiful and have a certain majesty to them.

Thank you for your comment and hope you enjoy the rest of your tour Tetsuya

Excellent tour of a truly amazing part of Japan

We met Tetsuya immediately after disembarking from our ship. He guided us to a train station 10 minutes away and navigated us easily on trains and buses throughout the day - without which we would have had to hire a taxi likely costing $500 more! We visited Ise Jingu Naiku Shrine, Japan's most sacred shrine. Tetsuya, who spoke excellent English, guided us through all the appropriate etiquette: - bowing before going under an arch entrance - purging and cleansing our hands and mouths - throwing a coin into the offering area, bowing and clapping twice We visited the Isuzu river (the truck company is named after the river) and our daughter paddled in the river. We enjoyed wonderful shave ice. Finally we went to the Pearl museum where we learned about cultured pearl making and female pearl divers. Overall we would highly recommend Tetsuya as a guide. He was very knowledgeable, patient and has great communication skills.

Thank you very much for warm and thoughtful comment. I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed the tour, and I appreciate your patience in hot and humid weather of the day. On behalf of your daughter, I have to add to the comment that though she dipped her feet in the river - she didn’t paddle, it is the down stream and away from the Uji bridge where it is out of Naiku precinct. So, it is said that some local people sometimes swim over there. I am glad that she could directly touch the nature of the city. It was rare to see not so many tourists are walking around the Shrine as well as Oharai-machi and Okageyokocho areas. Perhaps that is because of this heat and just after three consecutive holidays. This circumstances enabled us to walk smoothly and take some photos just under the steps leading to the Main Sanctuary and near the river and bridge without worrying about passersby. I hope this tour gave you and your family good memories. Though you might have had difficulty in viewing Ama diving show in Mikimoto due to many spectators seated in front of us, please try to consider it is better than open air stand in the summer time, as our room was air-conditioned well. Again thank you very much for being my guests and I hope you will return to your country safely. Bon voyage ! Tetsuya T
