Yeonmi was the most wonderful tour guide we could have ever asked for. She was engaging, she was knowledgeable about every site we visited, and she really made our honeymoon extra special. We had Yeonmi on two separate occasions during our stay in Japan. She gave us a historical tour of Japan, where she took us to the Imperial Palace, Asakusa, Meiji Shrine, Shibuya crossing and a few other landmarks throughout Tokyo. She showed us the ropes of the Subway system in Tokyo so we would be comfortable navigating the city on our own, she took us to an amazing restaurant for lunch by the river, and she was so helpful with any and all of our questions. She gave detailed explanations of all of the sites that we saw, and even taught us about Japanese customs and manners and what not to do traveling through Japan. We then had the privilege of having Yeonmi take us up to Hakone a few days later. She met us at our hotel and took us on the bullet train up there, where we got to take the cable cars onto a boat tour of Lake Ashi. She followed up the boat tour with an incredible restaurant recommendation in Hakone, and then a walking tour of the Outdoor Museum. Yeonmi was not just a travel guide, by the end of our trip and time with her, she felt like a friend, or better yet, family. We would highly recommend JapanWonderTravel and Yeonmi, as well as Tak and Ellie. They were all such amazing guides and were all so fun & friendly. Excellent service and would recommend them to everyone!

We loved our day trip to Hakone with Kazu. He was able to incorporate everything we wanted to do into our day and despite terrible weather (out of his control) was able to adapt plans to ensure that we had a very fun day. His experience meant we could simply sit back and enjoy ourselves. Kazu was extremely friendly, informative and fun to travel with and we would highly recommend his services. Thanks Kazu!!

We had a brilliant tour of Hakone and lake Ashu with Kazu. What a beautiful place. The bullet train museum was an excellent added touch. Thank you so much for teaching us about Japanese culture.

Our tour guide, Yeomi was really great! This tour is tough to do in a day trip but she managed to make it enjoyable and an incredible learning experience. We enjoyed using every mode of transportation on this tour, enjoyed some deliciously cooked black eggs straight from the steam from the mountain, and black ice cream too (not from the steam but real fun!). The best part of the day, we saw Mt Fuji, it was a beautiful morning and great pictures! Yeomi really took special care of us, she even showed us where an anime store was at Tokyo Station, my son was was very happy. I highly recommend using Japan Wonder Travel, the team was responsive to my inquiry, kept in touch with me throughout our stay and I trusted paying for my tours and knew they would deliver a great experience. I’ll use them again when I go to Japan.

We booked a tour with Japan Wonder Travel online and we didn't really know what to expect. But the staff was very organized and they sent us a few ideas before the tour. We even had the option to customize however we wanted. We had an amazing guide. Kazu made the day in Hakone really special for us. We enjoyed every minute of it. He gave more than 100% to make the tour great for us. He understood really quickly what we wanted and he put together the best experience. We felt like this was the best guide we could have had.

It was during a Food Tour (also with your company) that we learned about the hot springs in Hakone. We thought we just had to go and visit. Kazu-san, our guide, was again most knowledgeable and kind and introduced us to another side of Japanese culture and ways of living in great harmony. He filled our day with all sorts of small adventures, including great views of Mt Fuji, a trip via bullet train, gondola and boat, incredible food, and of course, a private visit to a local hot spring. This was an incredible day -- had we tried to do this by ourselves, I am convinced we would not have accomplished that much and with so much information. Many thanks! This is a must-do day trip.
