I was on a business trip to Japan and last minute, Maki was able to accommodate me in is full schedule.
I am a novice fly fisher and Maki was able to guide me to a beautiful section of a catch and release river.
I had a great day with Maki admiring scenery, supporting catch and release fishing,
caught fish and added to my fishing skills! Perfect !!Thank you again Maki.

Maki is an outstanding fishing guide. His local knowledge of the habits of Yamame (a landlocked Cherry salmon) and
Iwana (a river char) is exceptional and I had a great experience landing Yamame in a beautiful mountain stream on 7x and 8x tippet.
Challenging fish to catch as they are very wary, but we had a great day and brought enough to the net that I lost count (and, of course,
I busted quite a few more off!). In addition to a great fishing experience, I enjoyed Maki's friendly and welcoming personality and
he set up amazing traditional Japanese accommodations and meals that were almost as good as the fishing.
I would highly recommend him for anyone who wants to experience the unique and rarely fished by non Japanese anglers waters he guides on.
His English is excellent and he handled literally all the details.
He is a patient teacher and when I landed a particularly large Yamame we were sight fishing for in a tough spot on very fine tippet
he was more excited than I was! I highly recommend him!(From U.S.A.)

We went to fly fish in Nagano prefecture which Maki. We arrived very late but he was waiting for us at the hotel to welcome us. The next morning we did a bit of leader preparation with very good japanese leaders and tippet that Maki is selling online and went to a Stillwater starter: We hooked a couple of nice rainbows and Maki made a beautiful ink print of it on Japanese paper. The next day we went fishing in a river and missed a few fishes. The lunch in a tatami room overlooking the river was extraordinary. The third day was spend on a lake in the mountains surrounded by a forest of beautiful straight, tall trees. The weather was wetter and we missed many fishes but enjoyed taking a few small ones anyway. We invited Maki for very enjoyable dinner and ended the stay with a very relaxing Onsen.
