I have booked many tour guides in Japan in August 2015, and Mr. Shinichiro was one of my tour guides. I have to say he is the best tour guide out 6 guides I booked.He is well prepare, organize, and help you with anything you need. I booked with him all day Toykyo and all day Yokohama and both day, we have such a great time. His english was excellent. He even help me to resolve my limobus that I booked. I booked a round trip from the airport to hotel and hotel back to airport, but I have the dates wrong, I have it on the same day as when I arrived and leave. I try to explain to the guy at the limobus counter, but he didn't understand, so I asked Mr. shinichiro to help and he told don't worried everything is ok, its just a misunderstanding, the company will understand and will straighten with whole thing out. And they did. Thank you Mr. Shinichiro for your help. If you go to Tokyo you have to booked with Mr. Shinichiro. Once again thank you Mr. Shinichiro for a great tour, we enjoy every minutes of it.

Please give my best regards to your family: your husband, your mother-in-law, and young members who must have had the fresh stimulus during stay in Japan. Best wishes for your continuous success in your business and happiness of you and your family. Please take care of yourself. Sincerely Yours, Shinichiro (August 20, 2015)
