A Recent Review of this tour

Yoshi is a superb guide. He is knowledgable, friendly, down-to-earth, fluent, and extremely flexible. He worked with us throughout the day to change what we did based on our specific needs with courtesy, professionalism, and respect. This was truly a customized tour. He was well prepared to discuss architecture to any desired level but also discussed Japan "at large" which we enjoyed. He used our time well maximizing our enjoyment of the day. We learned a lot at a pleasurable pace. Get him if you can.
