Frequently Asked Questions

A letter from one of my customers to my wife (attendant)

Dear Akiko san,

Thank you very much for the box of assorted sweets made from Kuri. They are delicious & we are enjoying everyone of them. It was mezurashi since we don't grow Kuri here in Hawaii although we do have them in the markets but they are from China or US mainland. Marukai market
roasts & sells them.

It was our pleasure to meet you & as I mentioned in my earlier note, we appreciated your kindness by getting the tickets for the Romantic Train. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

It was nice to have you join us for lunch, too. Only wish we could have spent more time to visit with you.

Akiko, you did a good job making the Spam musubi--Jozu desu ne!
(Hope I spelled it correctly). Spam musubi is very popular & I won't be surprised that many okazuyas will be making them in Japan in the very near future.

Mr. Zumi san really made our trip most memorable with his changing the itinerary according to the weather, which we appreciated. He is such an efficient tour guide & also was an excellent caregiver for Coach Murakami. We will recommend his services to many of our friends.

Domo arigato gozaimasta!

Richard & Althea

“ Day Tour of Nara and Osaka ”

We were in Osaka on April 11 for 1 day from a cruise ship. Zumi (Takehiko said to call him Zumi) was waiting for us at 0815 when we got out of the cruise terminal after doing immigration. I had arranged a day tour for 4 people, 1 of whom was 90 years old and who was unable to walk long distances. Our minivan was great and set up with a wheelchair. This had not been requested by me but was just wonderful. I did not realise that this tour involved a lot of walking and without the wheelchair we would have not all been able to “see the sights”. Zumi insisted on being the wheelchair “pusher” the entire day even though the distances were quite long and involved a couple of very steep hills that had to be climbed. He was fantastic. We visited Nara and saw lots of Sika deer, the most beautiful Buddhist temple and had morning tea in the museum. We then returned to Osaka and visited Osaka Castle. It is magnificent and in beautiful grounds. We all had a great day and agreed it was one of the best tours we have ever done.

“ Great guide who showed us hard to reach sights ”

We had a great day with Takehiko (Zumi-san). We left the itinerary up to him as we had previously seen some of the more easily accessible Kyoto sights. He took us out to Senzen-in, a temple in Ohara and also at our request, to a private garden that had the most spectacular display of blooming Sakura trees. He’s a great guide, highly recommend

“ Attentive and helpful ”

Zumi-San was very helpful. We had a little confusion as to the area of the meeting place but once we had it sorted out, Zumi-san was the perfect aide. He helped us with our luggage cart and even guided us when we got our rail pass. We also hired Zuni-San for our shuttle to back to the airport and everything went smoothly. It helped that Zumi-San could speak English and was able to understand our needs. He also had great recommendations on places to go for sightseeing and places to eat. A perfect driver and guide.

Very Good
