“ Gorgeous and relaxing visit to Udo Shrine and Bedrock bath ”

I was pleasantly surprised to see such a relaxing itinerary for a shore excursions out of Aburatsu port. I'd been panicking about what to do for a shore excusion with my family and was so happy to find this tour. She was such a great guide to teach and care fo our large group (1 child, 2 elderly, 7 adults) everyone with different needs and interests, but Hitomi was so accommodating and lovely, including the arrangement of our micro bus rental for our group, lunch reservations, etc. Hitomi and our driver were very patient with our group. We also loved the little details like her hand-drawn backstory for Udo shrine, recommendations for food Miyazaki is known for, and explainations for how to enjoy the bedrock bath. Even after the visit, my family kept raving about the views, food, and the b... read more

Hitomi:

Dear Anna It was a great pleasure to guide you and your family in Miyazaki and I’m so glad you enjoyed the view of Nichinan coast! That’s one of the best things we are very proud of. I could tell you all liked the food from the restaurant, that’s great! You gotta try our beef if you ever come back to Miyazaki next time! I’ve been to several bedrock baths, but that place is the best, the location and also the quality, you’d made a good decision of taking your family there !(^^)! Thank you for picking me as your guide, I was happy to meet you all! (Please say hello and thank you to your family member.) Hitomi

“ Awesome guide, fantastic time! Highly recommended! ”

Awesome guide, fantastic time! Highly recommended!

Hitomi:

Thank you Kim! It was my pleasure to guide you around the city. I was very happy to see your smile during the tour. You both made a pretty souvenir at Hakata doll painting place. And it was fun and new at the owl café! Next time if the weather permits, let's go to Ohori park and try the duck boat ride!

“ Guided trip around beautiful Nagasaki ”

Hitome took the 4 of us around Nagasaki showing us all the sights with her warm and charming style. Her English is excellent and she had the answers to all our questions. Thoroughly recommend.

Hitomi:

Hello Allan, Thank you for your kind comments on my tour. I was happy to take you to my favorite places like Suwa shrine and the peace park, and of course the Glover's house! And I'm glad you all liked "Kakuni manjyu"! It was pretty fun having it at that small place. Thank you for letting me be part of your journey! Hitomi

“ Our day in hakata ”

Hitomi was a delight to be with! Her English is impeccable! She is so organized, had our tickets ready for buses, trains etc so no time wasted in line! Loved the Buddha, we still talk about the dark tunnel and how spiritual the experience was! Asahi beer was great and we’re looking for that dark beer here in the states! The ramen stadium was amazing, so delicious! Thank you for taking our food choices into consideration! And finding those obscure souvenirs topped off our evening! Hitomi, you are a great person and wonderful guide! If we ever make it back we are going to book you again! Thank you you for a very relaxing, adventurous, spiritual and fulfilling day!

Hitomi:

Dear Julie Wow, your review made my day!! Thank you so much for giving me such words, and it makes me really really happy to hear that you had great time in Japan, because that is my goal, mission to do this work. Yes, the Buddha tunnel is one of my favorite thing in Fukuoka, it is very unique, I am glad you enjoyed it! And I hope Asahi sells the dark beer in the states too! Thank you very much again for taking my tour, I hope you'll make it back so I can take you to some other interesting places! Hitomi

“ Beppu Hells ”

We were so lucky to have Hitomi as our guide in Beppu. She is so knowledgeable about the impressive colourful hot springs scattered all over the region. The highlight of the tour was the jigoku-mushi steamed food! We would certainly recommend her services to anyone wishing to visit Beppu and its surroundings. She is such a kind person and takes good care of her guests.

Hitomi:

Thank you Soan! I'm glad you enjoyed my tour in Beppu. It was my pleasure to guide you, I had a really great time with you and your family! Yes, the steamed food making experience is some thing new and unique! Glad you liked it. Thank you again for the review and taking my tour. I'll see you soon again in Japan or Canada:) ! Hitomi
