“ Mojiko and Masayo ”

Masayo is a great guide, making sure I was comfortable in the blistering heat. She planned a great itinerary right to the end! She spoke English well and was very informative about Mojiko and Shimonoseki. Thank you Masayo!


Wow! Corinna! I very thank you for such a heartwarming review and 5 stars on me. I feel like frying into the sky with your comment. You were always polite and tender. Chatting with you was so interesting and inspired me. I’m looking forward to seeing you again. Let’s try tasting blowfish next time although you and fishes have already become friends.
