“ A terrific time ”

Yoko was great. She was very receptive to accommodating our last minute change of itinerary. We had a memorable day and learned a lot about the interesting facets of Fukuoka. And she is a lot of fun.

Yoko:

Jerry and Nicole, thank you very much for your excellent review. It was a great pleasure to show you around my city. Both of you are so attentive and knowledgeable that I learnt a lot too. I’ve started to read the book about Dejima fiction you recommended. Thank you very much again for the time you spend with me. And I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!!

“ See Fukuoka through the eyes of a local - unmissable! ”

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.

Yoko:

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.

“ Well arranged tour ”

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.

Yoko:

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.
