“ Good Tour - but communication was an issue ”

We did a one day tour of Kagoshima from our cruise ship. The tour was from Triple Lights and our guide was Chie. The tour was described as “Tour Guides Recommendation.” The tour was about 5 hours with a guide anmd a private taxi for the day. We covered a lot, but the sites in Kagoshima are somewhat limited. The big sites are the volcano – Sakurajima. It is pretty and has some good views –but not much else. The best stop was the Senganen Garden which is very much worth the stop. Since we didn’t start until; 11:30 we skipped lunch. We also stopped at the Sakurajima Nagisa Foot Bath Park which was nice – but again not a “must see.” One minor complaint – while our guide was very earnest and made every effort to be accommodating her English was very rudimentary and somewhat hard to follow. ... read more

“ Delightful visit to Kagoshima ”

In a word, Chie was outstanding! Before our arrival she was very responsive to all my inquiries and offered many thoughtful suggestions to squeeze in as much as possible into our short visit. She accommodated our needs and arranged for a wonderful traditional Japanese lunch for us. Her English was fine and she had prepared illustrations to help us understand what we were going to see. All 7 of us were very pleased and we thank you Chie for making our visit so memorable.

Chie:

Thank you so much.You are the greatest guests.It is the happiest thing for us that you are interested in everything.I hope I could have the opportunity to meet you again. I really appreciate for having been able to be your guider.Thank you a lot.
