We gave Nobuko the task of shopping -- both specific items (such as coffee thermos) and general items (such as Japanese brand name clothes for women). When we met with Nobuko, it was obvious that she had spent a lot of research time on our requests -- she had over 15 different places for us to shop! We concentrated in The Ginza and Ometo-sando areas, finishing with a visit to her recommended hair salon!
Dear Elliot, Thank you for your review. It was very hot and humid, wasn’t it yesterday?However The shopping tour with you and Pam in Ginza was very interesting. And I like the clothes Pam bought. I am sorry that we cannot go to all of the shops which are planned at the first because of time limit. Anyway I hope you and Pam will enjoy in Kyoto also. Give my best regards to Pam, please. Nobuko
