“ Mt Aso/ Kamishikimi kumanoimasu tour ”

My family had a chance to visit the lovely Mt Aso and kamishikimi kumanoimasu shrine with Koichi-san in April. Koichi-san was attentive before the trip, and he also messaged us via Triplelights to ask our preferences and recommended us some local food to try during our trip in Kagoshima/Kumamoto. He was friendly and we were also pleasantly surprised when he informed he just recently bought the transport (his car). We were honoured to be his first guests in his new car. His english is good, and we would recommend him as a guide
