Awesome guide !

Yoji was one of the best guides that we have ever interacted with. Our experience with Yoji was excellent throughout the whole process. In fact, the process started quite before the tour day, where we discussed our itinerary, what we wanted to cover, as well as getting recommendations beyond the tour day, of things to do and restaurants to go. On the tour day, we saw the beauty that Kanazawa has to offer, with a highlight for the Kenrokuen Garden, which it is a splendid place to go with a beautiful scenery, that you should enjoy with all your senses. We really enjoyed being with Yoji throughout the day, where we learned about Kanazawa as well as about the Japanese culture. Also worth mentioning is that Yoji himself is a very interesting person to meet, as he has lived in other countries, which provide him with a good perspective of the world that we live in. The restaurants that he recommended were excellent and the food that we had in Kanazawa was outstanding. Don't miss the chance to drink sake in some of your meals to have a complete experience. Also, Yoji recommended us a visit to a sake brewery, that is around 400 years old, where we were able to taste different types of sake and we also learned about the sake production process and how it impacts the sake quality. If you have a chance to go to Kanazawa, make sure to book some time with Yoji. I'm certain that you will have a very nice time in Kanazawa as we did. Yoji, thank you so much for taking care of us. We really appreciated the time with you.

Thank you very much for choosing Kanazawa and me as your guide. We began discussing your trip a few months before the tour date, and I could tell how excited you were to visit Japan and Kanazawa. I did my best to ensure you enjoyed the tour and the food in Kanazawa, and I'm delighted to hear that you liked all the restaurants I recommended. You treated me like family. I truly enjoyed walking with you and chatting with you, learning about your perspective on Japan and information about your country. It has been motivating for me. Please enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan. See you soon!
