“ Great experience doing the Seki tour! ”

I had the unique pleasure of having Akiko as my guide for a tour of Seki City. When I booked the tour my emphasis was on visiting knife/cutlery factory’s and craftsman that Seki is know for, as well as visiting the Seki Sword museum. I have been on tours in Japan with other guides in the past but this one was very different. Akiko went above and beyond to make the experience as broad and encompassing as possible, highlighting site along the way such as various temples and shrines, with an excellent historical background for all these places of interest. Her English is excellent not only in vocabulary and expression, but she is familiar with many colloquial phrases, sayings etc. We enjoyed a fabulous lunch midday, complete with and origami display while we waited for our meal. The bottom line is this: Akiko puts her heart into her job and really did her utmost to [email protected] tour and I truly appreciated it. I would strongly recommend her for any of the tours in the Gifu area, if you want a gourd experience and value. Carmelo

Akiko:

Hello Carmelo san I am so honored that you took your time and sent me your nice review. It was such a beautiful day that we enjoyed walking on that day. At the Seki Sword Museum, I was so moved by your deep knowledge and passion about Katana. Your passion taught me that we should respect our tradition and culture again. I learned a lot from you and I thought I should learn more about Katana. I am sure every person you met in Seki welcome you. I enjoyed translating the conversation between you and the restaurant owner . I hope I will be able to make more kinds of origami . We were very happy having you in Seki. I will continue working hard so that I can gather information for the enough preparation and move flexibly on the day of tour. When you have a chance to visit Japan again, please come back to Seki again. Please have a safe and nice trip. Thank you so much for everything, Carmelo san.
