Tsuneharu is a very nice guy and full of passion on Shinkansen. It is a very informative tour and I definitely feel the passion from him. It is a interesting tour. During the tour, I have seen various type of Shinkansen railway. Their design are so beautiful and elegant. Japanese are proud of Shinkansen and this tour let me understand more about the Japanese culture. I enjoy the tour very much !

A fun experience for anyone interested in learning more about the Shinkansen operations. I'm not really a train nerd, but if you are, then you definitely want to attend this tour.

It was a great experience. It helped us especially because we did this tour the day before we took the Shinkansen train to Hokkaido. Tsune was very helpful and explained everything about the trains. I would highly recommend this tour.

A very passionate tour bt Tsune! Just so unlucky that my family and I are all just recovered from fever that we’re unable to enjoy the tour to the fullest. Nevertheless, a must see tour if you are unable to ride one. Thanks Tsune-san for the guided tour. Wish you all the best and thanks again for the souvenirs. Personal touch at its best

Tsune is a nice man. We don’t speak Japanese, so communication was almost impossible, but you can see he has a large interest in the railway system. This is not an insider’s tour. He gave us a little bit of the history of the Shikansen in a nice flyer.Tsune had well scheduled timing and showed us all the different Shikansen trains. We were lucky to see the cleaning crew lined up before they went into the train at one platform.
