“ Amazing Day Trip to Matsue ”

My wife and I had an amazing Day Trip to Matsue with Ken. Ken was on time, took us where we wanted, and was very flexible and patient. He is knowledgeable and answered all our queries. Ken really did above and beyond so we will enjoy ourselves, and we can't not thank him enough for all he did to make this day unforgettable. He was very nice to us and we gladly recommend him as a guide. If you ever plan to visit Matsue he is the guide for you.
