“ Short but great ”

We planned Mariko for one day to guide us from out hotel in Tokyo to our Ryokan in Hakone and show us the highlights there. Upon our meeting in the hotel the first thing she had to tell us was the Ryokan in Hakone could not be reached due to the heavy snowfall. She helped us to make new plans for that day. She is very friendly, speaks good English and is a pleasant personality. Thanks Mariko!


Thank you Joop! It was nice meeting you! I really wanted to show you around Hakone if it wasn’t heavy snow. When you visit Japan next time, I’m happy to be your guide. Please enjoy rest of your days in Japan!
