I had a wonderful and amazing one day private tour with Gokansho.com led by Mr. Hashizaki Schingo. He was very welcoming to bring us on this road trip to Tachicho Gorge and Mt Aso. He is very fluent in his English and demonstrated strong knowledge within the Kumamoto region and where we are heading to spend our day on. He was friendly and shared with us about Japanese culture and his past work experiences. It was like travelling with a good friend whom we have known for years! I would strongly recommend anyone who wish to tour around Kumamoto or specific places where Kumamoto is the starting point to engage Mr. Schingo as your travel private guide.

if you have a day to spare in kumamoto, do strongly consider calling Schingo san for an authentic trip to Takachiho/Aso area. He speaks fluent English and has much to share about local history and culture Takachiho Gorge and nearby shrines are very beautiful and Schingo will kindly help take photos with a professional camera Although towards the end we did not get to ascend to crater of Mt Aso due to foggy weather, Schingo is thoughtful to present other options which still made the trip worthwhile

My family and I went on a day trip to Takachiho Gorge and Mt. Aso. We booked the tour the day before and Schingo responded fast that’s why we were able to secure the tour. He made everything comfortable for us and was very patient with our questions about the tour (and some things we are shy to ask other Japanese haha). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We also had lunch in this cool restaurant Schingo recommended. It was an amazing experience!

Schingo speaks English fluently. He has an answer to every possible question you can ask about the place, its history, geology, customs and traditions and more ! We really loved his sense of humor and the way he describes japanese society. He is very committed and involved. Guiding is not a mere job for him, it's part of his life. He picked us from Kumamoto Ferry terminal, made every moment of this trip very comfortable and was very accomodating and patient when he proposed options for the next steps of our tour. We highly recommend him as a driver and a guide.

Our group was there mainly for the volcano, however our guide put so much energy and knowledge into his guiding, that we felt that we had been on more tan one trip. It is obvious that he loves his work, and the Kumamoto Prefecture. He was the guide but also you got the feeling he was enjoying the tour as much as we were. All transportation was right on time.
