“ Spending a wonderful first day in Japan with Rieko ”

My husband and I had a couple of days in Japan before getting on a cruise ship..we decided to stay in Yokohama rather than Tokyo and looked for a guide who was willing to show us some of the local customs and some of the food culture that we were interested in getting to know. We chose Rieko as she seemed to have some of the same interests. We chose to spend the day using local transportation such as trains and buses as well as learning how to eat Japanese style..we went to Kamakura. Could not have chosen a better tour for us. Rieko picked us up on time...she answered all of our questions prior to booking without delay, she adjusted her schedule to ours since we had just flown in after a 32 hr trip..and it was wonderful. she speaks English very well, answered our many questions about Japanese society and culture. we ate in wonderful places that were not filled with other Americans. We had matcha tea in a beautiful temple garden, and learned the proper way to drink Matcha. we could not have found a better guide. we spent a bit of time exploring a small part of Yokohama, and she gave us confidence in being able to use the subways and bus system. Thank you for everything...it was very special.

RIEKO:

Dear Bonnie san Jim san, Thank you for the flattering remarks you made! I am very happy to have been with you in Kamakura and Yokohama, which are my hometowns. We were so lucky that the rain was over when we arrived at the big Buddha and could enjoy a comfortable walk around Kamakura. When I reached home, I checked my pedometer and I found that I made you walk a bit too much. I hope you are not so tired and enjoying a wonderful cruise tour. If you come to Japan some day, please let me know and I would love to see you again. Thank you again and have a good tour!
