          Shinji gave us a great tour; a great day in Kamakura
          The tour was great; the town of Kamakura is lovely, and we loved exploring its various alleys. Going inside of the Daibutsu Buddha was a big highlight. Shinji was an excellent guide! He was very friendly and we all learned a lot from him, including all about shrines and temples, and the practice of worship in Japan. We would definitely recommend this tour to others!

          Great private tour
          Romi is a superb guide! She created a tour that combined our preferences with what we "had to do" in Kyoto. Also she gave us a marked map for things to do for the rest of our trip, and it was excellent!

          Nikko Unesco Heritage sites and Abyss
          Yuki was amazing! She exhibited her long career as an engish teacher with her wealth of knowledge and personal touch. She asked us to create the itinerary and made it in such a way that the day flowed seemlessly from one location to the next. Beside the Unesco World Heritage site, she took us to places we would never have found on our own. She went above, and beyond what we expected.

          Best Kyoto travel thanks to Kanagawa sensei! ( Momoyo Kanagawa was more than a guide, she is a generous teacher as well!
          I was in a dream….I was traveling alone in Japan for a short 3 days trip & so i had to have someone organise my only full day in Kyoto….i wanted to see, visit and experience some hand picked places and activities, thanks to an amazing and licensed guide with extraordinary experience not only in travel but also, as you know, a profound knowledge of this amazing country! I was in a dream …imagine being a solo traveller who has no idea how to get to Kyoto from Osaka and back to not miss my flight the next day let alone synchronize activities for THAT one day in Kyoto. It was all possible thanks to Japan Guide Agency, our lovely driver who picked me up at the hotel, and the amazing Momoyo Kanawaga with whom i learnt some important Japanese historical facts and got to chat with during the trip…which enriched my Japanese vocab! Arigato guzaimas Momoyo!

          Highly recommended Kyoto tour .
          Excellent tour with lots of interesting sites visited . Although our drive was supported to just drive , he joined us in all the sites and gave us detailed information. He also took us to an excellent local Sushi specialized restaurant for lunch .

          Ohayo Tokyo from Ohio
          Mika was amazing! She helped us plan a perfect 6 hour tour of Tokyo on our first day, including a visit to the same spot Scott’s grandpa was photographed when he was stationed in Tokyo 72 years ago. These photos and memories will last forever!

          Excellent tour with Mackie!
          We had an excellent tour with our guide Mackie! He took us to three major areas and sights in Tokyo to include, Ueno park, Asakusa/Senso-ji temple, and the Imperial grounds. He also selected an excellent lunch stop at a very reasonable price. The tour was very informative and gave a us a good idea of how to navigate Tokyo for the rest of our stay.

          Great Tour with a Great Guide!
          On our first full day in Tokyo, we went on an excellent tour of some of the old and new sections of the city led by our fantastic guide, Kenji Kasama. Even before left home and the trip began, Kenji was in contact to plan the trip. We appreciated his reaching out to personalize our tour. From start to finish, the tour was a wonderful immersion into the vibrant culture and iconic landmarks of Tokyo. Our journey began with a visit to the Meiji Jingu Shrine, where Kenji provided insightful commentary on the shrine's history and significance. Walking through the peaceful forested grounds, we felt a sense of tranquility amidst the busy city. Kenji pointed out many details like the “boar’s eye" and the corners of sidewalks that we would have missed without his guidance. Next, we went into the neighborhood of Harajuku and explored the colorful Takeshita Street. Kenji expertly navigated us through the large crowds, pointing out unique shops and street food vendors along the way. No visit to Tokyo would be complete without experiencing Shibuya Crossing. Kenji guided us through the bustling intersection, providing insights into one of the busiest pedestrian crossings in the world. Because it was a clear day, Kenji recommended that we go to the roof of Shibuya Sky for an amazing 360° view of the city. We were fortunate enough to have a great view of Mt. Fuji while up there. Our tour continued with a visit to the Imperial Palace, where Kenji shared stories of Japan's imperial history. We weren't able to go in, but just seeing it from the outside showcased its impressive architecture. Finally, our journey concluded at the historic Sensoji Temple in Asakusa. Kenji led us through the bustling shopping streets, brimming with traditional souvenirs and local food. As we approached the imposing temple gate, adorned with intricate designs and lanterns, Kenji described the cultural significance of the temple and meaning of the statues on either side of the gate. Kenji then took us to a nearby spot for lunch and we wrapped up our tour shortly thereafter. He left us at a dog café so we could play with some dogs before heading back to our hotel. Kenji did a great job explaining the subway system to us as we worked our way around the city during our tour. This was very helpful for the rest of our stay in Tokyo. Overall, our experience on this tour was nothing short of exceptional. Kenji's passion for Tokyo's culture and his wealth of knowledge made each stop along the way a memorable and enriching experience. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore Tokyo with an expert guide.

          Great experience with Romi
          Romi was a wonderful guide, who provided a thoughtful and fun 4 hour tour around Kyoto. I was travelling with my parents and she made sure to include them and answer their questions (including my mum's desire to do a bit of food shopping on a local street). Would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to explore Kyoto (or any other parts of Japan).

          Great private tour of Tokyo
          This was the perfect way to navigate Tokyo with a local, and have some background and history. Our guide was great, very friendly and spoke perfect English. We went to all the hotshots, and it was a very busy day with lots of walking. This tour allowed us to know where to go, and how to get there and what to do. Fully recommended!

          Great tour, so glad we booked it.
          Definitely a 5 out of 5! Taka was wonderful and provided our family with a great first experience of Tokyo. He took us to the places we wanted to visit in addition to some local must see spots. He also provided us with some interesting history and was gracious enough to take beautiful pictures of our family. Would highly recommend this tour and tour guide.

          Spendid First Visit to Tokyo
          We loved this City!!!!! Where do I begin? At the beginning. First off, our guide Takako was A mazing! She provided us with a awesome and informative tour, tailor made for us. Her time management was excellent and kept us moving at nice pace which allowed us to visit multiple sights. She had extensive knowledge of the history of Japan and provided us with fascinating information regarding the culture of Japan past and present. The views and the pictures that we were able to take were fantastic! Thank goodness I brought a portable charger. This tour gave us the opportunity to access public transportation both above and below and Takako navigated the labyrinth of the transportation system like a pro. The most appreciated feature of this tour was that Takako went to great effort to tailor this tour to our interests and she picked us up and dropped us off at the Cruise Terminal! Thank you Takako! We love Tokyo!!

          Hiroshima Tour
          We just completed a Hiroshima tour with Tomoyo, and the experience was incredible. Tomoyo was nice, considerate, and guided us with incredible knowledge and sensibility through the peace memorial, elementary school, and Hiroshima Castle. I highly recommend the Hiroshima Tour with Tomoyo.

          Best tour you could ask for!
          We had an incredible experience on our tour. Yoshi was our guide and he made the experience better than we could have hoped for. He was so friendly and really knowledgeable of the area. We love learning on our tours and he made sure to teach us and answer any questions. He also took us to a few great food stops as well. I would highly recommend this trip and if you get a choice I would ask for Yoshi!
