If you're planning to visit Fukuoka then booking a day or part of a day with Yoko should be top of your to-do list. She is knowledgable, interesting and a lot of fun to spend time with. Temples, shrines, museums and the castle were the order of the day. My wife and I learned so much and enjoyed seeing this lovely city through the eyes of a local. We would definitely rebook with Yoko on our next trip to Fukuoka.
Hello John and Nicole, thank you very much for the kind review!! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the places we visited on the day. It was a pleasure to share lots of things in Fukuoka with both of you who showed great interest on history and culture of my city. Plus, I've got excited about Rugby World Cup thanks to your story !! I hope you enjoy your stay to the fullest in Tokyo and Japan.
Yoko was very professional and terrific engaging with our teenage boys. Her English was very good and we found her to be extremely knowledgable. I highly recommend.
Hi Rechard, Thank you very much for the high rating and nice comment. It was a big pleasure to guide your family on the day. I really admire the strong bond of your family, which I want my family to be !! The tour with you guys gave me a lot of lessons and memores. Thank you again and I hope you visit Japan again in the near future.
Yoko accompanied us to the Kawachi Wisteria Garden. She planned everything very well so we could enjoy our day. We have a baby in the group and Yoko was very patient. Overall we had a great day with her.
Hello Desy, thank you very much for your nice review. It was a pleasure to accompany your group because all members were so kind and friendly. Thanks to your cooperation, everything went smoothly even though it was crowded during a golden week. You arrived in Fukuoka at the right timing for wisteria flowers. I myself enjoyed the romantic view of wisteria in full bloom! I hope your family will visit Japan again.
Than you Yoko for a wonderful tour accomodating our every request and ensuring we had a wonderful experience.
Dear Graham, Kelly, James and Jeremy Thank you very much for the nice review. It was a pleasure to show you around Fukuoka. I appreciate you attentively listened to me and showed interest on Japanese culture, especially food! I hope you visit Japan again in the near future!
Yoko was both warm and professional. Yoko went above and beyond requirements in providing beautiful hair ornaments that her own mother had hand crafted. Yoko was very organised in booking the rental of formal kimonos for us to wear, the professional photography service, and she guided us at Kushida Shrine. Yoko was with us through the whole process and made our experience very calm and enjoyable. We totally recommend her for other English speaking tourists.
Hello Emi, Annette and Evelyn, thank you very much for a nice comment on the tour!! I'm honored to be there to celebrate Evelyn's ceremony together. It took me back to three years ago when I had it for my kids. All of you were so beautiful and gorgeous in various colors of kimono. I hope it becomes a wonderful memory for your family! As you are related to Japan, please visit here again to explore new places in the near future.
