“ Too many types of transportation were Frustrating ”

Our day with Shinobu was good overall but frustrating at times. We visited the things we had wanted to see, but the frustrating part was using so many different types of transportation that seemed to waste so much time. Also, communication in English was challenging. The day would have been so much better had he rented a jumbo taxi and saved the time and costs of purchasing tickets for short rides. The taxis he hired were double the cost. Very embarrassing trying to get the extra money together on the spot. We had to ask several times for him to give us an overview of what we were doing and seeing. It seemed like he was just there to get us from place to place. Lunch changed 2 times without any conversation with us. Again, paying for lunch was embarrasing as he didn't communicate with the restaurant and us on how we would be paying. If you are looking for a tour to get you from place to place and you don't need an actual "Guide" this would be okay for you. It's just not what we expected as this was our first time to Japan and expected someone to tell us about what we were seeing.

Shinobu:

You smiled me on the spot, but was that a surface smile? I had to confirm many times as a guide. That's natural. I just want to study English in my lifetime.
