“ Very good guide - learned a lot about Aizu Wakamatsu from her ”

Wonderful guide. Her hospitality and compassion allows me to enjoy my visit in Aizu Wakamatsu. She brought me to lots of interesting places there (such as Tsurugajyo castle, Aizu Samurai Residences) and I really learned a lot from them. She is also very flexible and was able to accommodate her itinerary to include other places which I want to visit. I would certainly use her service again when visiting Aizu Wakamatsu or anywhere in Fukushima area.
