Frequently Asked Questions

We are on a cruise ship. Would it be possible for you to meet us at the port?

Yes, in that case, I'll be able to meet you at the port and take you back to the ship after the tour.

Can we make the school visit shorter and spend more time on seeing the sights?

Yes, in that case, you could visit more sightseeing spots and spend just a few hours at school. I could tailor your school visit the way you would like me to, especially the activities you would experience with the students at school.

Do we have to eat school lunch?

No, not necessarily. If you don't want to try the lunch, we could eat at a nearby restaurant before we visit the school. I can show you the menu in adavance, though.

Can we visit two schools, an elementary school and a junior high school?

Yes, but in that case, you could only visit 'Tsuru no Mai Bridge over Tsugaru Fujimi Lake and Crane Nature Park,' which are located near the schools.

Can you help us communicate with the students?

Yes, I'll interpret for you, so you can have a good time with the students.

When are we paying the van charge?

I'm afraid not. The van can accommodate as many as 10 people including a driver and a guide. So 8 is the maximum.
