Had a great day on the Kanna river with Maki catching Yamame and Iwana.Maki was an exellent guide,getting me into fish with the right flies,all of which he hand ties,and made the right adjustments for picky trout.
In addition to great day of fishing,Maki made my trip easy by arranging for my stay at a traditional ryokan inn that had great food,including bear and wild boar that the owner had hunted himself.
He also prvided pick up and drop off to the closest station asking only that I help with the gas.
This allowed me to take the Shinkansen out from Tokyo with no worries,and the whole trip was an easy day and a half.
I highly recommend spending some time with Maki if you are looking for a great fly fishing experience in Japan.

We are brand new to fly fishing,and visiting Japan.We spent 2 awesome days with Maki.He proved to be an excellent guide and accomplished instructor.
He introduced us to the proper use and care of the equipment,the proper choise of leader,Tippet,and flies for conditions and species targeted.
He showed us Proper casting and precentation techniques,Line management where we put these new skills into action.
We caught plenty,and had a great day.We advanced to mooded streams where leamed to read the water and present properly.Success there as well.
He has a life time of knowledge in the various patterns he ties.
After guiding us he will be busy replacing his inventory!
A great personality and kind person with a permanent smile as he teaches someone the sport he loves.
His English is goo and you will not be disappointed with his service.

I am Japanese American stopped by Nagano before my 17 year old American daughter and I visit my familly.
I hired Maki for my daughter's passion for fishing.Maki welcomed us.It was fasciating to see how he observes water and fish flow.He changed his hand made needle which looked like a piece of art every hour.Even I could fish a beautifull rainbow trout.Maki was so happy for us if he fished himself.
I needed to save before my trip but it was well worth to be with Maki.
Thank you so much for one beautiful memory.
I will keep in touch with you.(From U.S.A.)

I have never had the pleasure of fishing with someone quite like Maki san. From the moment I got off the Shinkansen, a warm smile,  a strong iced coffee and a seemingly endless array of stories and insight into the world of Japanese fishing culture awaited me. It felt more like I was going on a road-trip with an old friend, than meeting a guide for a day of fishing.The passion, pride and enthusiasm he has for his home waters and their native fish is immediately apparent and quickly becomes infectious. The willingness with which he shares his secretrivers and his proven techniques is unmatched by any guide I have ever met. The fishing is not easy and the techniques are decidedly unconventional, but Maki san's endless patience, constant encouragement and boundless belief that the fish of your dreams is just around the next bend makes every moment a pleasure. 
Thank you for sharing so much more than just your fish with me. I thoroughly enjoyed our two days togethercboth the time spent fishing and the time spent otherwise. You are one of the hardest working people I have ever met and I wish you the best of luck as you continue to build your business. But you are also one of the most likable people I have ever met. I don't think I have ever had a warmer welcome anywhere in the world. I feel like I came to you as a client, but left as a friendcand I can't wait to get back to Japan to fish with you again.(From U.S.A.)

Great guy, great guy, highly recommended."(From Switzerland.)


Target fish,
Rainbow trout and Brown trout,Full season.

Had tough conditions which often happen when you plan a trip far in advance,but I have enough experience to know Maki knows his stuff.In fact,I was surprised how much he had in common with my trout bum friends back in the United States.Not long after meeting he seemed like a fishing buddy I've know for years.Could front gave us two rough days of fishing,but it started to warm and hatch started shortly before I had to leave and managed a nice rainbow.Will have to retern for Yamame and Iwana.
Despite the fish not cooperating,had a great time with beautiful surroundings.
