Frequently Asked Questions

An email from my customer in Hawaii

Aloha Zumi san,

On behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Les Murakami, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Sato and my wife and I, we extend our heartfelt appreciation for your services during our stay in Osaka and Kyoto. Your assistance was invaluable in making this trip filled with fond and happy memories. This is especially true for Mr. and Mrs. Murakami as it has been over 20 years since their last visit to Japan. As you well know, it is so difficult for them to travel to Japan without assistance and the services you provided made it all possible.

Autumn in Japan is one of the best seasons and we were able to visit so many places in Osaka, Nara and Kyoto. Although we encountered some rainy conditions, you kindly adjusted our schedule enabling us see just about everything on the itinerary. One example of the extraordinary service you provided relates to us enjoying the train ride along the Hozu River on the Saga Scenic Railway. Initially, there were no tickets available; however, your wife, Akiko san, made a special effort, on her day off from work, to secure tickets for us to enjoy the autumn foliage on this rail journey. We also enjoyed having Akiko san spend the rest of the afternoon on tour with us.

Zumi san, you made it all possible for us to have such as wonderful vacation. We are all amazed and thankful that you were able to do so much handling the wheelchair for Mr. Murakami. Having seen the full extent of your services, we will recommend you to our friends who need wheelchair assistance and who are interested in visiting the Kansai area.

All of us wish you and your family continued good health and success with your business.


George Sakurai

“ 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

“ Zumi is very much on time! ”

When we arrive at Kansai Airport on the 8th of April, Zumi was waiting for us with a placard of my name. He gave us some information on where to go, etc. He's also on time when we are departing on the 16th. He arrived at our apartment at exactly 6am and drove us to Kansai Airport. Thank You, Zumi!

“ Private tour in Kyoto with guide ”

Mr Takehiko aka Zumi-San is an excellent guide. We had arrived in Kyoto to spend our first night at an Airbnb place that was freezing and my whole family was miserable. When Zumi-san arrived to take us on our tour and we lugged all our bags pleading him to take us to another place to check in, he was so very kind and said we could just bring all the luggage throughout the tour as there was ample space in his van. He was patient with my son who was sulking, patient with us when we stopped for photos, offered to take our photo for us at the top sights and explained about the history and culture of Kyoto. He also rushed us to Kiyomizu dera to try and catch an important annual event where the high priest would announce the Kanji character for the year that was. At the end of the tour, he dropped us off at the New Hankyu hotel where he assured us would be positively different from our first lodging. All in all, he made us feel a lot better by the end of the day and we are considering seeing him again for a tour of Osaka next week. Domo arigato gozaimasu, Zumi-san!
