My wife and I have recently returned from a 16-day trip to Japan. I must say that we were so fortunate to have found Mr. Takaki's website in our planning stage. I contacted him and began what was to be an ongoing conversation about what we wanted to see and do during our time in Japan. He provided us with a high level of invaluable advice and service that was not anticipated. Once Mr. Takaki had sufficient information from us he put together an itinerary including all of the train connections that we should take and suggestions as to hotels to use. We had no idea that he would go to all this work on or behalf pro bono. He also set us up with 2 other guides in cities along our route. The service rendered was next-to-none and so appreciated by us. During our trip, not a thing planned by Mr. Takaki went afoul and he was in constant contact with us via email making sure everything was going well. His interest in making our trip a once-in-a-lifetime experience was genuine and serious. Little details were no less important than the larger plans and decisions that made up the itinerary. Everything went like clockwork and he and the other guides were certainly open to adjustments on a daily basis based on our interests and energy reserves. It is without hesitation that we highly recommend Mr. Takaki to anyone planning on doing a trip to Japan on their own and who require the expertise of someone who is not only extremely familiar with the country but is a superb guide as well. Don't look any further - book him for your trip-of-a-lifetime.

My time with Mr. Takaki was really exceptional. Despite the fact that I do not speak Japanese, he made my first visit to Japan a memorable experience. His English was fluent and spontaneous. His manners were friendly and respectful. The gracious and personal attention Mr. Takaki gave me was remarkable. I was never bored and we had interesting conversations. He modified the tours many times not only to accommodate my personal tastes but to fit my needs like slowing down when I wanted to. Mr Takaki was very interesting and always willing to give me historic and artistic details which I would not have obtained without him. He went out of his way to make sure I would get the best Japanese experience. I highly recommend the services of Mr. Takaki to anyone who wants to experience in a friendly manner, modern and ancient Japan and its people. art, sites, food and life style.

We have arrived home to the USA Today, and I want to thank you and your excellent deputy guides , Mr. Mitsui and Ms. Tsuyama for showing us everything in Hiroshima and Tokyo that we wanted to see plus much more. They both were very flexible to our requests and questions , informative and always very polite. We saw many interesting sights and were busy the entire day . You are fortunate to have such excellent people to depend on for guides and representatives of Japan. I also want to thank you very much for organizing our agenda and time schedule for the various high speed trains, ordinary trains and ferry boats. You made our travel very efficient and it would have been very difficult for me to do alone. I appreciate your quick responses to all of my emails. It would give me great pleasure to recommend your service to anyone traveling to Japan.
