Tomoko is an amazing and beautiful person, aside from being an absolutely fantastic guide. If you want a custom tour to suit your exact needs, she's the one! From start to finish, Tomoko went above and beyond to accommodate all our requests. I had given her a general idea of what we wanted to do (such as watching a sumo practice) Tomoko did the research and gave us several options for our custom tour. We were even able to make adjustments on the fly to the itinerary (we ended up going to a different sumo stable rather than our planned one due to the time and proximity) as she had back up plans for whatever situations arose. Tomoko was very knowledgeable with regards to the stories and history of the places we visited, she made the entire time fun and interesting. She was always punctual, and I must apologize for our occasional tardiness. The time we spent spent with her was such a joy, it was just like hanging out with a good friend rather than a guided tour, and made our experience in Fukuoka so memorable. A big mahalo again to Tomoko, it was such a pleasure to get to know her and spend our time experiencing the many locations we visited in Kyushu together. She is the best!
Hi Darren!! Thank you for your uplifting & heartwarming comments. So glad to hear you enjoyed 4-day-trips. First and foremost, I am thankful that you were very patient to communicate with me through messages back and forth, even though I could not response quickly enough sometimes. I am truly grateful that you trusted in me on itineraries I suggested. Whenever you went and visited, you showed your appreciations to food, places, culture and you were so kind to every single person whom you encountered. I am truly fortunate to be able to meet you and get to know you as a person. You are really awesome inside and out!! It was a spectacular & meaningful time we shared. Until you come back here again, I will explore more cuisine shops for you:) Thanks a lot!!
