“ Yoko - Great Tour Guide ”

We can't thank Yoko enoughg for her assistance during our one day visit to Fukuoka and as a first time user of an independent tour guide certainly consider it a better option than the expensive on shore program offered by the cruise line.

Yoko:

Dear Peter, thank you very much for the nice comment! I was honored to be the first Japanese citizen and tour guide for you. All members of your party are cheerful and friendly that I myself enjoyed the tour very much. Your stay in Fukuoka was the right time when we had a lively atmosphere of Yamakasa festival. I hope you found it interesting because the festival is the symbol of our culture. Above all, I really appreciate you invited me to your lunch in the end of the tour, which was so generous, and I was so happy to be part of your group. I hope you come back to Japan again in the future!! Thank you very much for the great opportunity.
