“ Cherry Blossoms ”

What a wonderful guide Mitsu-san was. I wanted to only see Cherry Blossoms so that's what Mitsu-san showed us. One place more spectacular than the other. He was knowledgeable and on time. We were very happy and recommend him wholeheartedly.

Mitsuyuki:
Thank you for your good comments. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your cherry blossom viewing tour. I also enjoyed this cherry blossom viewing tour. Thank you again!

“ Mitsuyuki was a great guide and spoke good English. ”

Mitsuyuki was a great guide and spoke good English. He followed our itinerary and was flexible when we wanted to go to lunch early. His tour was light on content, but with visiting 6 temples, our group was okay with that.

Mitsuyuki:
Thank you for your good reviews. I heard beautiful English all day. It was very hot, but it was exciting that I experienced fire ramen. I'm happy to accommodate every customer's request as much as possible.
