Aki and I communicated many times prior to our day trip to Kamakura. He and I worked out a desired agenda, meeting point, and a lunch reservation. He helped our friends with their luggage storage requirements even helping them with the luggage - definitely above an beyond, and he also helped them find their way to their Narita based hotel. Our experience in Kamakura was first-rate and that is in large part because we knew we could relax and enjoy. Aki interacted with our group perfectly, giving us just the right amount of information, allowing us to wander while never losing track of our little group. Our Sunday in Kamakura was amazing, women wearing kimonos,, a wedding at one of the temples, a young baby being blessed at the Shinto shrine. We really felt fortunate that we had Aki to help us navigate Kamakura.
Dear Ellen, Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review! That's very nice to say. I also had a great time with you, your husband, and your friends. It was my pleasure to have guided you around Kamakura on a beautiful day. We are so lucky that we encountered a traditional wedding ceremony and a baby's first visit to a Shinto shrine. I was happy to see that you appreciated breathtaking scenes of nature and traditional sites with cherry blossoms. Thanks for coming to Yokohama and Kamakura, and choosing me as your tour guide! Please convey my regards to your husband and friends. Bon, voyage! Aki
