    Awesome guide and awesome scenery.

    Shin is a great guide. He customized the tour for us and made sure we were comfortable all day. We did a nice hike up Mt. Kinotki, which was great after having spent so much time in cities. He even brought hot tea and chocolate for us to enjoy at the summit. Shin also took us to a beautiful shrine, a nice vista spot, and an interesting old tea house. His English is excellent, and he has a very comfortable and new van that he drove us in. Shin picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, which made the day very easy. Highly recommend him!
