“ Aomori Trip ”

Very Good
2 weeks ago Traveler: Barli -   Tour Guide: MISA

Misa was very helpful on our trip to Aomori, despite of the heavy rain in sakura season, we still manage to get good shot for our photoshoot. Driver and car arranged by Misa as requested and clean. We manage to get back as planned as well.
