Kazuo went way beyond what almost any other guide would do for me by helping me plan my trip in detail in advance since so many things require advance booking, planning, etc. He was fantastic!
Dear Chris Thank you for writing such a very good evaluation for me. My job was given priority to arranging your travel. I was deeply impressed by your will to have your son much pleasure in this travel. And I concentrated on it. Your satisfaction is my joy. I am looking forward to assist you also in your next travel. Best Regards, Kazuo
Kazuo is really a gentleman, his English is excellent ,and his historical and cultural knowledge of Japan are excellent. Our group was 4 adults and we spent a day with Kazuo seeing incredible places hat would have been very hard to find by ourselves. Kazuo did a lot of research for our trip and he was an excellent guide. I would not hesitate to hire him again, and I highly recommend him! Lastly, our guide took us to a very reasonably priced Japanese restaurant that had very good food for about $10 a person. Kazuo really listens to what you say you want to do, and he is very flexible. We spent a whole day with him and will definitely book with him again!
Jane, I really appreciate such a good evaluation to me. Your requirements were basic knowledge of Japanese history and culture, and preparation for your own stroll in Tokyo later. According to these criteria, I gathered visiting sites in nearby area and stacked into the tour. As my prospect may have been rather optimistic, the time was nearly running out. But the delay was suppressed by your suggestion. All of you seemed to enjoy the tour. It was a wonderful experience also for me. I deeply thank you and am looking forward to next guide for you.
