“ Our day in hakata ”

Hitomi was a delight to be with! Her English is impeccable! She is so organized, had our tickets ready for buses, trains etc so no time wasted in line! Loved the Buddha, we still talk about the dark tunnel and how spiritual the experience was! Asahi beer was great and we’re looking for that dark beer here in the states! The ramen stadium was amazing, so delicious! Thank you for taking our food choices into consideration! And finding those obscure souvenirs topped off our evening! Hitomi, you are a great person and wonderful guide! If we ever make it back we are going to book you again! Thank you you for a very relaxing, adventurous, spiritual and fulfilling day!

“ Beppu Hells ”

We were so lucky to have Hitomi as our guide in Beppu. She is so knowledgeable about the impressive colourful hot springs scattered all over the region. The highlight of the tour was the jigoku-mushi steamed food! We would certainly recommend her services to anyone wishing to visit Beppu and its surroundings. She is such a kind person and takes good care of her guests.

Hitomi:

Thank you Soan! I'm glad you enjoyed my tour in Beppu. It was my pleasure to guide you, I had a really great time with you and your family! Yes, the steamed food making experience is some thing new and unique! Glad you liked it. Thank you again for the review and taking my tour. I'll see you soon again in Japan or Canada:) ! Hitomi
