Incredible tour with a charismatic guide!

Kanazawa Night Tour

Incredible tour! Our guide, Nozomi, was very fluent in English and an excellent storyteller. Very charismatic and funny, her personal anecdotes added a lot of vibrancy to our tour of the historical geisha districts. She was also kind enough to give us her contact info in case we have any other questions during our stay in Japan. 10/10 fantastic!

Kanazawa Dinner

Great guide, great tour, great food!

Kanazawa Night Tour

It was wonderful. Nozomi was very knowledgeable, had terrific English and was a complete delight to spend time with. The dinner at the end of the waking tour was excellent- some of the best food we have had in Japan. A really delightful night. Very highly recommended!

Geisha District Night Tour
Salt Farm Noto

We were lucky to have Michiko as our guide to Kanazawa & Noto.

Noto Peninsula Tour(Private)

The trip to the Noto Peninsula was memorable and turned out to be an unexpected highlight of our trip. Michiko helped bridge the cultural gap between us and the Japanese people we met on the tour. She made us feel like friends and colleagues, rather than tourists. We wondered why she was taking pictures herself, and we were pleasantly surprised when, several days later, we received a link from her to a beautiful photo & video album, with highlights of both trips. It was an unexpected gift of wonderful memories.

Our Best Tour in Japan!

Kanazawa Full Day Tour (Private Guide)

Working with Mike at Kanazawa Tours to customize the tour was really easy. We chose to add an artesian experience in kimono creation since that is a particular interest of mine. In addition, we arranged to be picked up at the port since we were not sure of local transportation options.

Enjoyable tour of Kanazawa

Kanazawa Half Day Tour (Private Guide)

Our tour was awesome! Yumiko was our tour guide and she was clear with her explanations, descriptions and history of the places we visited. The pace of the tour was just right. We covered a lot of grounds – the Kenrokuen Gardens (beautiful grounds), Geisha district, Samurai District and the Omicho Market. We even had a taste of very fresh sashimi and oysters at the market. Thank you, Mike, Nagisa and Yumiko for the great tour experience. I highly recommend booking this tour with Kanazawa Tours.

Great fun in Shirakawago, Hida Furukawa and Takayama

Shirakawago – Hida Furukawa – Takayama(Private)

It was a delightful day, made more interesting by our tour guide Mai. She was very knowledgeable of the places we went to, and the flowers, trees and art that we saw. Courteous and accommodating, as the Japanese people are. She made the day special with her openness and caring nature. An expert driver. Wonderful person to have as a guide. An honour to be her guest.

Top-experience: night tour with local foods & drinks

Kanazawa Night Tour

We did the night tour with local food and drinks. What a lovely lady, was our guide Nozomi. She took us to the geisha neighbourhood. She is so vivid and kind. After a walk with her, you know the history and the way it works today. But you also learn to know her and she is interested in who you are. After the walk

Great day in Kanazawa

Kanazawa Full Day Tour (Private Guide)

Our experience on our private tour of Kanazawa was wonderful. Our guide Reiko met with us first to talk about options for the tour and our preferences and then tailored the tour to our interests. One member of our group wanted to learn more about gold leaf for which Kanazawa is famous. Reiko arranged a demonstration of the process at a local…

Brilliant Day in Shirakawago and Kanazawa

Shirakawago – Hida Furukawa – Takayama(Private)

We had a phenomenal day due in no small part to the excellence of our guide, Michiko Kamatami, and our driver Taka Hayashi.

Wonderful Tour with Expert Guide

Kanazawa Full Day Tour (Private Guide)

Tony, our guide, paid attention to our requests for areas to tour, and then some. He took us to a smaller Geisha section of town than the one most people go to. There we went into a working tea room, met the proprietor, a charming fellow in his 80’s, who showed us around, explained what they do and made us tea…

Great experience, so worth it

Kanazawa Half Day Tour (Private Guide)

We were only in Kanazawa for 1/2 a day, so we booked this tour in hopes we’d see some of the city before we had to move on. Our guide Nozomi was friendly, knowledgeable, and so lovely to spend half our day with! We learnt a lot, laughed a lot, and left Kanazawa with warm memories despite the cold weather…

Unbelievable, unforgettable experience

Kanazawa Full Day Tour (Private Guide)

I think this experience will be one of our top memories in Japan. Ms. Nozomi Kondo was truly unbelievable – what an amazing person. So kind, so enthusiastic, and knew EVERYTHING. No matter what she was showing you you wanted to go down the rabbit hole with her. She truly loves Kanazawa and it shines through in everything she does…

Don’t miss the opportunity to see and learn about Japan

Kanazawa Full Day Tour (Private Guide)

Our guide Nozomi combined a day and evening walk into an amazing experience. With so much to see and do, Nozomi made it possible to visit many amazing places. Her well informed commentary meant we didn’t just see the samurai and geisha districts, the gardens, parks, shrines and bridges, but we also learned about them and the history of Japan…
