Intimate family from Hong Kong

by Takehiko - Japan Licensed Guide
(18) Reviews

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.

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.

Takehiko san likes to be called “Zumi.” He was recommended very correctly to me by Emi san, a very helpful English-speaking coordinator online at Triplelights.

This had not been requested by me but was just...

“ Great guide who showed us hard to reach sights ”

9 months ago Traveler: Sharon -   Tour Guide: Takehiko

We had a great day with Takehiko (Zumi-san). We left the itinerary up to him as we had previously seen some of the more easily accessible Kyoto sights. He took us out to Senzen-in, a temple in Ohara and also at our request, to a private garden that had the most spectacular display of blooming Sakura trees. He’s a great guide, highly recommend
