Intimate family from Hong Kong

by Takehiko

Cheerful Mama,papa and their children in filial piety

living in Hongkong came over to Osaka and Nara for sighteeing in the early February.

Mother has been using a wheelchair since several years before ,so her family have helped  or taken care of her.

They would like to visit Japan ,of course together with mama,but don't know how .

And then,Little sister checked it out on the Internet and found the site,Japan Accessible Tourism Center.

http://www.japan-accessible.com/index.htm

Mr,KIJIMA(called KIJI),president of JATC,has been to almost 130 countries on a wheelchair since his early 20's.

He is famous for pioneering tourism abroad from Japan on a wheelchair.

 

When we met at Kansai International Airport for the first time,Papa would be doubtful if I was really reliable.

Because he didn't shake hands with me strongly,I guess.

B,B,But,he gradually gave me smiles and began to talk to me in English that he seldom spoke.

I was very pleased and happy to see him show his applaud for my taking care of them.

 

Mama and Papa are of the same age.In addition,me too.

I will never forget the days spent with the family.

Thank you . Thank you.I appreciate it.

See you again some day.

Our trip with Zumi was great. Our trip started and ended in Osaka where our family of 6 were staying. We wanted to see as much as possible for our 1-day Nara and Kyoto trip and Zumi san was so accomodating, flexible and patient that we were able to cover all the sites we wanted to see in spite of the long drive he had to do. We even had time for a side trip he recommended, to a mochi store where y...

Zumi-San was very helpful. We had a little confusion as to the area of the meeting place but once we had it sorted out, Zumi-san was the perfect aide. He helped us with our luggage cart and even guided us when we got our rail pass. We also hired Zuni-San for our shuttle to back to the airport and everything went smoothly. It helped that Zumi-San could speak English and was able to understand our n...

Mr Takehiko aka Zumi-San is an excellent guide. We had arrived in Kyoto to spend our first night at an Airbnb place that was freezing and my whole family was miserable.
