My client had a wonderful time with Yoshiharu. It really started their trip to Kyushu brilliantly.
I really appreciate your kind words. Please convey my best regards to your client. Thank you so much.
Booked a tour with Yoshiharu on very short notice for an upcoming trip to Nagasaki. I was traveling for a business purpose and took one-day to get a highlight tour of Nagasaki. Yoshiharu-san arranged a good day of sightseeing. But, the more important aspect of our day was the valuable information and historical perspective he provided throughout the day that made my visit more interesting. I would definitely recommend him for visitors to Nagasaki.
Hello Adam! Thank you so much for such nice words and recommending me. It was so short time to visit many destinations, but it was my great pleasure that my guiding helped you somehow to understand the deeper feelings of local people, not only the superficial aspects of historical events. Arigatou gozaimashita. (Thank you so much for joining the tour.) I really enjoyed the tour with you. Thank you.
Mr. Yoshiharu made an itinerary that fits our schedule. He gave clear explanation during the tour. He also gave great suggestion on reserving seat for the train. Although we were almost late for his train, he was calm and still let us do some shopping. Before we said goodbye, he gave us a thoughtful souvenir. Thanks Mr. Yoshiharu.
Thank you so much for such nice words, DESY. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed our tour. I hope my explanation helped you to understand Japanese history and culture and keep curiosity toward Japan. Thank you for choosing me as your guide. Arigatou gozaimashita. (Thank you so much)
Thanks for all!
Dear Petr, Thank you for joining the tour. I hope you enjoyed that tour and bring back good memories of Japan. Please convey my best regards to all of your family. Arigatou gozaimashita. (Thank you so much.) Best Regards, Yoshiharu
Yoshi-san was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot about Fukuoa, and Japanese history and culture as well.
Thank you so much for your nice review. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Kyushu and bring back lots of good memories of Japan. Please convey my best regards to all of your family.
