“ Custom Kumamoto 1-Day Tour ”

After spending the whole day with Ikue, I found myself wishing she would be available to guide me in other parts of Japan. We learned a lot from her re: Japanese history and culture, and also about the Kyushu way of life.

“ Truly Professional. Best guide. ”

Ikue is a truly exceptional guide. Fluent in English, knowledgeable, professional and efficient. We were lucky she was with us on a day that I needed medical care. She made the visit to a private clinic a pleasant experience, interpreted all exchanges between the doctor and myself expertly, and secured all medicines from a nearby pharmacist. She is a great organizer as well rearranging to perfection the rest of the day which was interrupted by my unplanned emergency. She is truly remarkable. Thank you Ikue for turning what began as a problematic day into a wonderful one.

Ikue:

Thank you for your comment, which gave me much encouragement. It was a great pleasure for me to have the opportunity to meet and serve you and your family. I hope your condition is much better by now. I wish you will have a safe and comfortable trip back home. With very best wishes Ikue

“ Tour of Kagoshima and Hososhima ”

Ikue was excellent. She was excellent in preparing our itinerary from the time we contacted her several months before our tour dates. She was on time and flexible in making changes to meet our interest and schedule. She also was excellent in contacting the taxi to help one of our friends that was on wheelchair for the entire tour. She was definitely helpful in providing assistance to our friend on wheelchair. One suggestion. A portable microphone would have been nice for passengers in the back to hear her comments while describing the events. Would definitely recommend her.

Ikue:

Dear Walter, I am glad to know that you returned to your home safely. it was a great pleasure for me to serve your group in Kagoshima and Miyazaki. Thank you for your precious advice. I will have my own portable microphone so that I can be well prepared for a larger group. I will work harder to be truly professional tour guide and would like to meet an expectation of "professional" traveler like you. Please give my best wishes to your friends. Best regards, Ikue
