“ Superb Guide ”

We arranged a day tour with Ritsuko from Azamara Quest docked in Sakaimenato. Ritsuko arranged a wonderful trip for us with our own car and driver to the Adachi Museum of Art with its stunning garden. Then we went on to visit the beautiful castle at Matsue, followed a boat ride around the moat. The boat has a roof that comes right down as you go under the low bridges - great fun! We also went to the fascinating Lafcadio Hearn Museum and his home. Lafcadio was the first European to gain real insight into Japan and write about it for the European market. An amazing man! Also fitted in a quick visit to the Samarai House. Had a delicious Japanese lunch too. Ritsuko was a superb guide, who arranged a great day for us. She Is a very knowledgeable, fully qualified guide who speaks excellent English as well as being a pleasure to be with. It was very easy to communicate with her beforehand via Triplelights to arrange exactly the itinerary we wanted - a very packed day! Book a tour with Ritsuko and you should have a great day.

Ritsuko:

Mary, It was great for me to guide you and your husband in Matsue. I am very glad to know you had a great fun there. I was so happy we arranged the tour together as you like not only on the web, but also on the day. You chose Lafcadio Hearn Museum and his home instead of matcha green tea, that you had already experienced. I was inspired by your deep interest in our culture. Thank you for trying the pleasure boat around the moat of the castle even on the chilly day. It was good they provided us a blanket! Take, the taxi driver, let me know he sent you off at the port without a problem. Thank you again for giving me this opportunity. I was so happy to have such nice and considerate guests like you.
