Very friendly and good navigator. I liked her knowledge of current Japanese pop culture and never made me feel stupid for asking questions. She had lots of little tidbits that were helpful, like the story of the 7 thieves. She did seem somewhat flustered by our American habits, I hope she forgives us. She also had to be prompted with questions rather than volunteering the info, perhaps this is cultural. We loved the tea ceremony. Overall worth it!
Thank you for your review. Well, it was five thieves, not Seven dwarfs, but it is fun to find them at Denbouin Street at Asakusa, isn't it? I don't remember what "American habits" you're mentioning to, but if you're mentioning the escalator rules, it would be better to observe when you come next time. Sorry about not asking enough questions that day. If you're talking about the "paper stripe" shide, I usually wait for the guests' to answer what it looks like, but because the day before you the guest had a hard time guessing what it was, I gave the answer without asking you. I appreciate your questions so much proving you're geniunely interested in Japan even though sometimes I had a hard time to figure out where you're looking at and barely had time to catch my breath. You and Juan mentioning Gargoyle was quite eye-opening for me. I checked later on and found out that it came on Silk Road and became the origin of that Ogre tile. I'm happy you loved the tea ceremony. Nikko is worth checking out like smart couple like you. I will be looking forward to guiding you there in the future. Thank you again!!
