Date: Nov 5/18

Yuko San is very friendly, polite and efficient. She is very professional in presentation and personable in communication. Having her guiding us and giving information relevant to the sites and history is excellent and enriched the visit form a simple sightseeing tour to a learning journey for all. She is very attentive to the needs of the tourist and was very good with my young son! I highly recommend her.

Tour: Mr Laurence Ing Diamond PrincessOtaru excusion, Otaru, Japan
Date: Sep 30/18

Yuko is an excellent and very informed tour guide who speaks excellent English. She advised us to disembark from the ship as early as possible as we had to go through Japan immigration after our the return from the Russia . Therefore we planned and were one of the earliest passengers disembarking and we found her waiting for us. She was also very informative, very patient, and assisted me as I cracked my knee on my first day in Japan and and had trouble walking. Thanks for a great tour Yuko.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laurence sama Thank you very much for your kindest comment. I was so grateful for my time with you all. I was happy to guide you in Sapporo, my hometown and we visited Autumn Food Festival final day at Odori Park. Thanks to the good weather, we were able to go around Sapporo and Otaru, and you purchased lovely wood inlay wall-mounted decoration. It was beautiful. Thank you very much for you gifts too. I wish your continued happiness and good health.

Tour: #392949, Frederick Hawson Noboribetsu Jidaimura, Hell Valley and Lake Toya Tour, Sapporo, Japan    view tour
Date: Jun 8/18

Ms. Yuko accepted our request for a tour of Noboribetsu and Lake Toya by private taxi on very short notice, just three days before. Ms. Yuko was very friendly, helpful with travel tips and gracious to answer our questions. She helped us appreciate the cultural aspects of the Ninja Park and told us personal stories of Hell Valley. Best part for us was the Oyunuma Brook Natural Footbath. The tour price with private taxi may have been rather hefty, but well worth the comfort given the rainy weather that day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frederick Hawson sama Thank you very much for your kind comments. Noboribetsu Lake Toya tour is the most popular tour of my tours through the year and I am glad that you had an opportunity to visit there. Oyunuma brook footbath is an excellent experience for everyone. I wish your family members continued happiness and success.

The tour with Yuko was very nice. The weather was a bit bad but there was a lot to see. Yuko could also tell me a lot about the area and was funny too. The visit of the Whisky destilery was very interesting and Yuko knew a lot of interesting informations about the history of the destilery. The seafood meal was very tasty and the view on the coast was beautyful. I would alwaysw recommend Yuko as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas sama I am very sorry for my late response. We took a regular sightseeing tour bus to Shakotan and Yoichi, so it was convenient to visit these areas. Due to gusty wind and rain, we were not able to walk to the the edge of the Cape. But Yoichi Nikka Whiskey distillery was worth visiting and I was glad that you were able to buy Nikka Whiskey ! I was so grateful for my time with you. I wish your continued happiness and good health. I hope you will come back to Japan again in the future again

It was my pleasure to customize tours for you and thanks to warmer spring this year, we are able to watch double petal cherry flowers, Takinoue pink moss phlox park and Kmiyubetsu tulip park.

The tour in Noboribetsu with Yuko was great. She showed me a lot of beautyful places in Noboribetsu and the weather was good too. The Hell Valley was very impresive and the warm foot bath was very refreshing. Yuko was very helpfull during the planning of the tour. She was very friendly and well informed and there was always enough time for photos, souvenirs or a small break. I would always recommend Yuko as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas Lubba sama Thank you very much for your kind comment and your kind consideration. The tour day was a beautiful day to stroll around Noboribetsu Hell Valley. Oyunuma footbath brook was so unique and I am glad you tried. Your hotel offers mocha-tsuki performance, it is very rare to watch. I am amazed to find your deep profound knowlege about Japan.

Tour: Mr Eric Tay Sounkyo Tour, Sapporo, Japan
Date: Mar 1/18

What is good about Yuko San is that she is a Japanese licensed tour guide. As what I know of, not many tour guides in Japan are licensed tour guides. As a licensed tour guide, she had to sit in for exam about Japan history, thus she has good knowledge about Japan history and good places to go in Sapporo (she lives in Sapporo). I brought my elderly parents in winter and she hand-held my parents when we walked on snowy roads. She was friendly and helpful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eric Tay sama Sounkyo travel was a really adventure! Winter storm hit Hokkaido but we were able to go to Sounkyo safely. Unfortunately Ice Festival was cancelled on that night and on the way back to Sapporo, JR train stoppedand we took bus instead. I was so grateful for my time with you and your parents. I wish you and your parents continued happiness and good health.

We saw the Sapporo Clock Tower and had a sumptuous lunch of King Crab. The Chocolate Factory is great. In Otaru, we saw the canal, the samurai shop and the music box shop. There was a typhoon and snow. My son was thrilled seeing snow for the first time and Yuko treated him so well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maria Luisa Gorospe sama Thank you very much for your encouraging comments. October 23rd was a rainy and snowy day so we had to change itinerary. But we visited Clock Tower and saw a newly installed Dr Clark's Statue and chair. I am glad that you enjoyed seafood including King crab. You choose your favorite size living king crab and had it cooked as you liked. The photo with a still active king crab was a quite experience. I am happy to know you had a good time.

Yuko is a friendly and informative tour guide. She was kind, helpful, fun to be with and excellent English. She is a Hokkaido history guru and took great pride and effort to show us all the historical and nice places at Lake Toya and Noboribetsu. We were very happy and it was a wonderful day with her. We sure will recommend her to our friends and relatives who want to travel to Hokkaido.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Samantha Lim sama Thnak you very much for your kind comment. It was a really warm day and we were able to enjoy the beautiful landscapes in Lake Toya and Noboribetsu. We did not need gloves while going up to Ginnuma crater observation point. Today was a completely different day with snowfall. This is typical weather in Sapporo. When you wake up, you will find a white world next morning. I am so grateful for my time with you. I hope you will continue having a dood time in winter Hokkaido.

She has been very kind, patient and helpful with all my enquiries even before I made a booking of the tour. Yuko went all out to find her information like bus schedules etc for us, something which I would not have been able to find out as they were written in Japanese. Would definitely recommend Yuko to anyone coming to Sapporo and would use her again in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jean Lim sama Thank you very much for your feedback and kindness. It is my pleasure to provide useful information and intriguing tours for my guests. I am sure that you enjoyed snow country and ski. I am relieved to know that you arrived safely. As Sapporo was blanketed in 65 cm of snow for just two days, it was unusual at this time of the year. Once again I am so grateful for my time with you and your family. I wish your continued happiness and good health. Yuko

This is our 2nd consecutive day with Yuko as guide. Also gave her 5 stars on my previous rating for Noboribetsu tour. Similar with our 1st tour, Yuko was able to show us and explain in detail the places we visited. Again, she is very flexible with the itinerary and professional. Covered a lot of grounds for this tour without a problem. From chocolate factory, lunch at local seafood market to Otaru canal and shopping areas. Highly recommend her if you want to see and tour Sapporo as locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rhonald sama I was happy to take you to Otaru Aquarium to see sea lion show. It was spectacular for sea lions to swallow a whole salmon! Your children are scholars and you have promissing children. I am so grateful for my time with you and your family. I wish you and your family's continued happiness and good health. All the beset

We have been travelling for quite sometime and Yuko is the best guide we have thus far. We have our two kids with us (9 & 5 years old) and had no problem with this tour. She is professional, flexible on the itinerary, and very knowledgeable of the areas we visited. She also provided information about the culture & other interesting topics about Japan while on a long train ride. She even provided us with snacks & raincoats. Loved the ninja show & maze. Enjoyed our lunch..seafood & soft serve ice cream!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rhonald Faustino sama Thank you very much for your warm comment. Your children looked so happy with you and your children will be ninja experts now! The seafood was really excellent. Fatty tuna was the best I have ever seen! I was glad to know you had a wonderful time and I was able to share happy time with you all. Remember me to your beautiful family.

Our guide Yuko is an excellent guide. She patiently worked with me over several weeks to design a tour that fit the interests of our group of 9 mature adults. She arrived early to meet us and continued throughout the day to provide in depth us knowledge about the areas we visited. She and the driver easily and efficiently adjusted the schedule here and there to accommodate a few special stops we wanted to make. Yuko is kind, friendly, thoughtful, flexible and interesting. I would highly recommend her
