Shizuko:

Dear John, Thank you very much for sending me such a warm review. I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. It was my pleasure to customize the tour and reserve tickets. I myself enjoyed accompanying you and your wife very much. It was nice meeting you all the time. While guiding, I was impressed with your deep knowledge of Japanese history and culture which gave me a good motivation to study harder. I felt I was so lucky to be chosen as your guide. I hope that you had a wonderful vacation this time including Japan. Thank you very much again for sending me your warm review. With best regards, Shizuko
