“ Naoshima Art Island Adventure ”

Mari is simply the best especially if you are considering visiting Naoshima otherwise known as the Art Island in the Inland Sea of Japan. From Shinkansen to one local train to a second local train to a ferry to a public bus to a museum bus Mari led us to the adventures of this incredible island. Believe me I needed a guide to navigate the complex process of getting there and it is worth the effort if you are interested in modern art and a peaceful island. Mari was so considerate of accommodating our special interests even as we were traveling. Mari takes that extra step to ensure our journey went well. Hiring Mari for a day of adventure at Naoshima is unforgettable.

Mari:
Dear Kurt, Arigato-gozaimasu for your nice review comments and so quickly. Yes, it was a long journey, but I enjoyed having you and your mother and showed you a completely different place from Kyoto or Tokyo. I'm glad you picked Naoshima on your adventure tour to Japan. Let me add you communicated very well with the Japanese men on the local train back to Okayama! Mari

“ She took care of us! ”

Our family was a group of 8 people with very old and very young members so it was a nightmare to bring them to the same pace and ensure that we complete a full day itinerary. But Mari was very patient and mindful. She adjusted the tour at Kitano, originally she intended to bring us to a house on top of a hill but seeing the difficulty of the older family members to navigate the steep hill she brought us instead to 2 legacy houses that were near each other. She also patiently waited for the members of the group when they were late and looked for the young ones when they didn't make it on time to the meeting place. She was like a mother to all of us. Thank you Mari!

Mari:
Dear Veronica, Thank you very much for your review. Yes, I tried to be like a mother to you! I wanted each one of you to enjoy the tour, and I'm glad you did! Mari

“ Tour of Kobe ”

We toured Kobe with Mari as our guide. I listed down the places my family and I would like to visit and she fixed our itinerary. She is accommodating and converses well in English. She made sure we would have a great time and we did! Thank you, Mari. It was nice meeting you. We all enjoyed the tour.

Mari:
Dear Jenny, Thank you for joining my Kobe tour. It was my pleasure to have you. As cherry blossoms were a little late this year, you came to Japan at perfect timing! I'm glad to know you enjoyed the highlights of hot springs, cable car ride, Shushinkan sake brewery and the harbor area. Mari

“ Superb, A++ Tour Guide! One of the Best! ”

Mari is one of the kindest, patient and very accomodating tour guide. She went out of her way to find the Anello bags my sister was looking for, show us the bargain manga books for my daughter and her painting materials. Not only that, she made reservations for us at the famous restaurant known for Kobe Beef. She also shows us the many attractions of Kobe and knows how to interact with my kids. Also very patient with them. Lastly, went back with us back to Osaka station when she lives in Kobe. I really appreciate it. Will book with you again when we come back!

Mari:
Dear Tessa, Thank you very much for your tour review. I'm pleased to know you enjoyed the tour in Kobe. Finding the shops you requested beforehand was fun for myself too! You gave me an opportunity to find out more about my town. I enjoyed talking with you and your family very much. I'd be happy to be your guide again on your nexit visit. Mari
