“ Frustrating ”
Harry very nice guy a pleasure to.be around hard worker and very passionate about his country but .... he didn't know the subway system at all and we did a lot of unnecessary walking and wasting time .. I told him what we wanted to see and he had his own itinerary for us ...to say the least very Fustrating !! I spent a lot of money I so that we didn't have to worry about how to get from point to point! And we able to see as much of the city as possible and a day that definitely was not the case!!!! but my daughter had to figure it out for us and the guide !!! Again very nice person
Dear Chris san and Family,
Thank you for your contribution of an accute comment on our yesterday's tour. Fist of all, 15th August, yesterday,
was the 73rd anniversary of Japan's deafeat in the Pacific War with the U.S. after two desastrous atomic bombs
which destroyed Hiroshiama and Nagasaki cities. I took your family to the Ysukuni Shrine.
Please visit the Desney Resorts from JR Tokyo station by taking the KEIYO Line ＠Ｙｅｎ 220
one way to JR Ｍａｉｈａｍａ station upon your arrival to the Ueno station. You can return from Disney
Resorts by a bus direct to Narita Airport. Thank you again for your comments which are very frank and honest
under the unusual heat of the weather 33oC!! We will keep thinking how to preserve the Edo Castle (now a
part of the Imperial Palace compound) as one of our historical assets in our country, without any another
desaster for our future generations. My tour is not only for mixing with the crowd of pedestrians and visitors
from overseas. I am proud of my status of of the National Licensed Guide/Interpreter. I used to be working in
the top business district in Tokyo for 20 years or so, and I am aware of how nuisance to take the metropolitan
subways with a lot of changes complicated with the troblesome up/down staircases, escalaters, which is very
time-consuming and causing the complaints of the senior guests. Fortunately, we were lucky with the heated
but the fine weather without any sudden shower of rain despite the Typhoon No.15 near our souther island,
Kyushu. Please refer to my brochure I presented to you and your young generation, Hennah-san and I hope
she will revisit Japan with some of Japanology information to be accumulated.

P.S. Upon termination of our tour, I could just enjoy my solitary, late lunch at Asakusa,
pondering our day's tour!! I enjoyed a bowl of crushed ice with strayberry-taste source at Yasukuni Shrine.
Please let me be advised of your e-mail address, so that your family photoes can be sent from my computer.
The last but not the least, many thanks for your kind thought with gratuity!!
