“ Best tour guide available anywhere ”

As a seasoned ocean cruise traveler, who along with my wife have used many different private tour guides for our numerous shore excursions, Miwi is arguably the best private tour guide we ever had.

Miwi:

I should mention that you made me cry quite!! Thank you is not enough at all to show my appreciation that you became my precious guests and gave me such a wonderful comment to my tour. The Koa Clock on my fireplace will always cheer me up. I miss you and your party, but am looking forward that we will have another chance to see each other again!! Hoping all my appreciation can be reached to you!

“ Visit to Oga ”

Miwi did a very good job explaining the history in Oga. She took us to many places within the peninsula and took the time to stop and see the best views. She is friendly and very considerate. I would defintely hire her again.

Miwi:

Hi, Elson-san, I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed Oga with me. I had been worrying about your journey after Akita. Thank Our Lady of Akita she has blessed and protected you. I am looking forward I will have another chance to show you Aktia more!
