Eri was easy to communicate with right from the start. Quick to respond to any queries I had too. She met us with a bright smile and was very patient with us. She regaled us with the many stories of Shoguns and battles and tragic love. It was a wonderful way to learn of the past and to marvel at the monuments attesting to those tales. Truly a delight to share it with Eri. Thank you
