It was an absolute pleasure being guided by Ms. Nobuko on our journey through Aizu-Wakamatsu. We came to Aizu-Wakamatsu with an interest in Japanese history and culture. About 6 weeks before departing for Japan, I reached out to Ms. Nobuko to inquire about a tour and since that time, our messages have been flying back and forth. She designed an amazing and detailed tour itinerary for us that covered all of our interests and more. On the day of our tour, she provided us with instructions on how to arrive to our first meeting place and as we walked through historical sites like Imori-Yama, Tsurugajo Castle, Fukunishi Honten, and Nisshinkan Samurai School, we felt the history of the place come alive with her descriptions of events and explanations. She even arranged craft/kyuudo acitivites and made reservations for lunch for us all. We would never have been able to visit so many places in one day by ourselves. Even more importantly, thanks to her guidance we came away with a greater appreciation for the history and people of Aizu. I am grateful to have had the opportunity meet and to learn from Ms. Nobuko on this tour.
Dear Lisa Thank you for your warm words. It was so kind of you to give me such a wonderful souvenir . I really appreciate that you choose Aiyu as a destination for your trip. I was presently surprised by your historical and cultural knowledge of Jagan as well as your curiosity and desire to learn more . It inspires me to study even more about Aiyu and Jagan. I hope you have many more adventures !
