“ An amazing day with an equally amazing guide ”

Our time with Mai was too short. She is very well versed in the history of the area as well a great insight into modern Japan. There is a whelth of information we never would have received we're it not for her knowledge. What enjoyed how the history of Matsushima has influenced Japan today - none of which we would have observed or understood with Mai. She picked out a very tasty lunch spot for us when we said we wanted to have seafood. The day felt personal due to her effort to cater to our interests. She even helped recommend some of her favorite local restaurants to try while we were in Sendai. We managed to fit a lot into our day: temples, boat tours, history museum, sake tasking, and local sweets. We finished out day with a traditional tea that came with an amazing view of Bay... read more


Thank you very much!!! It was a great day for me too. As I told you, every guest is different and has different interests, that’s why no matter how many times I visited Matsushima, the scenery looks very different and I can get new insight. You both tried to understand japan very deeply. I’m happy you like japan. Thanks for the memorable day!!

“ A wonderful day in Matsushima ”

Mai met us punctually at the cruise ship terminal at Ishinomaki port and she accompanied us by taxi to a local station where we caught a local train to Matsushima. We visited all the sights including beautiful gardens and temples and later went on a boat trip around the bay where she pointed out all the islands of interest. She was a delightful person, very friendly and knowledgeable and we had a very relaxed and interesting time. Mai was happy to take things at our pace, being four older people, and her origami lesson at the traditional tea house overlooking the bay she took us to was a lovely surprise and a fitting end to the day. We had a wonderful time with Mai and and would thoroughly recommend her for any future visitors to the area requiring a more personal and tailored sightsee... read more
