“ Amazing Tour! ”

My husband and I were visiting Japan for the first time and decided to take a tour of Nagasaki. We were overwhelmed trying to figure out where to go, what to do, and how to get there. We booked a tour with Yuko, and it was such a great decision, she is simply fantastic! She met us at our hotel, and helped us get a day tram pass and showed us how to use the tram. We visited the A-Bomb Museum, The Nagasaki Peace Park, Deijima, and Glover Garden. She is so sweet, helpful, and informative. We never would have been able to see all of these great sites so easily without her! She even took the time to take us to Nagasaki Station to show us how to use our JR Pass and which train to get on to get to Sasebo (we were visiting friends there the next day). Thank you so much Yuko!

Dear Christina Thank you for your kind words ! I really had a great time with you because you are so beautiful and graceful couple. I hope you will enjoy your stay in Japan. Thank you.

“ We loved every minute with Yuko ”

Yuko met us on time and we felt at home with her straight away. Her English was excellent and easily understood. In our short stay in Nagasaki Yuko took us everwhere we wanted and gave us a good understanding of Japanese life and culture. Very good value and we would highly recommend her to anyone contemplating a day in Nagasaki.

Dear Mike-san Thank you for kind words. I had a great time with you. And I learned something very important from your wife. She said "I have always been happy ." ,which makes me happy. Since then I have often said to me that miracle phrase. I will never forget the lovely couple! Muchas gracias. Yuko

“ A 4 hour tour of Nagasaki from the cruise port. ”

Yuko met us at the cruise terminal. After a short walk to the tram, we were off to see the highlights of Nagasaki. The tram was very crowded and Yuko worked diligently to keep our small group together. Our first stop was to the interesting Peace Museum. From there we walked to the Peace Park and Yuko told us more about the memorials and Nagasaki. After a couple more tram rides and a little shopping, we returned to the ship. We have nice memories of Yuko and Nagasaki.

Dear Jean Thank you for the five stars. I hope your friend who was not good in shape is all right now. Please visit Japan again and show me the picture of your Akita mix dog .
