The tour of Koyasan with Nobu-san has been a highlight of our trip to Japan. Nobu-san is an absolutely wonderful guide - he is caring, thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable. He is also very, very good with children - he engaged very well with my 10 year old son and tailored the tour and the narrative to be fun and engaging for a child. Thank you Nobu-san for a wonderful experience!
