Diamond Princess

I picked up 18 Mexicans on Diamond Princess at the port of Sakaiminato on June 25th 2019.  I took them to Tottori Flower Park, Matsue Castle and Yuushien using a micro bus.

Tottori Hanakairo Flower Park

First we use a flower train to look at whole garden.  Tropical and subtropical plant provide glorious colors of throughout the year in the Flower Dome, the center of the garden.  The park is divided into 4 gardens: European garden, Mist garden, Flower valley, and Herb garden.
In particular floating flower beds are arranged over a latticed grid and are planted with seasonal blooms.

Sakaiminato --> Flower Garden・Castle Tour

We see Mt.Daisen over the Flower Hill.

I think this is a leading park in Japan.

We had Hideo as our guide for a Hiroshima Tour. We were staying at Osaka and he picked us up at our Osaka Hotel and directed us to the Shinlansen fast train by local train. This was absolutely stress free and I would recommend it. We had Hideo for close to 12 hours from our Hotel and back. This made things very easy. His English is good and he had excellent knowledge. We were a group of 8 and he ...

We enjoyed touring the Shihmizu area with Hideo. He was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us to many places. Our only suggestion for the future is that because he is rather soft-spoken a microphone and speaker would be helpful as it was difficult to hear him in the back of the van. Other than that we wholeheartedly recommend him

Hideo was very well organized and kept us on track to see everything. It was overly ambitious to try to cover Kyoto sites in one day as we were unable to see each site thoroughly. But we did want an overview and got that and want to re...
