“ Too many types of transportation were Frustrating ”

Our day with Shinobu was good overall but frustrating at times. We visited the things we had wanted to see, but the frustrating part was using so many different types of transportation that seemed to waste so much time. Also, communication in English was challenging. The day would have been so much better had he rented a jumbo taxi and saved the time and costs of purchasing tickets for short rides. The taxis he hired were double the cost. Very embarrassing trying to get the extra money together on the spot. We had to ask several times for him to give us an overview of what we were doing and seeing. It seemed like he was just there to get us from place to place. Lunch changed 2 times without any conversation with us. Again, paying for lunch was embarrasing as he didn't commu... read more

Shinobu:

You smiled me on the spot, but was that a surface smile? I had to confirm many times as a guide. That's natural. I just want to study English in my lifetime.

“ Work in progress ”

Shinobu helped us to enjoy a day in Hakodate - he was prompt, courteous, responsive and keen to show us as much as he could in 6 hours. He was considerate to our needs and thoughtful. His English is not yet fluent but this will improve in time. He was a good escort and used the local transport systems well - his knowledge of the town of Hakodate was not extensive and perhaps a little more background research would help to enhance the enjoyment of his clients and make him a little less anxious. Shinobu is not from this town and we had to pay quite a large sum (Y8000) for his transportation fees over and above his guide fee which made this quite an expensive day.
