Very nice tour guide showing us around Kagoshima.

Thank you for your time to review my tour guide in Kagoshima. yoshiro
Yoshiro met us at the boat dock. We used public transportation as Yoshiro guided us in Nagasaki. Yoshiro showed us the sites that we wanted to see and made suggestions. He was very much a polite gentleman. We would use him again.
I am very glad to hear that they would use me again in the near future. I enjoyed tour guide for two pleasant couples from Florida and I hope they could get a good memory in Nagasaki.
We booked Yoshiro-San for our port of call at Nagasaki. As we have been to Nagasaki before, we requested him to take us to Arita to see pottery and porcelain making. We also requested him to help us booked a jumbo taxi. Both Yoshiro and the taxi driver did a great job providing us with a lot of informations. They also recommended us a good restaurant for lunch which serves authentic and reasonable price Japanese food. Most important they took good care of my mother-in-law who have knee problems. We really appreciate.
Hi Bee-Lee, I am very glad to hear that you were satisfied with our tour guide services in addition to jumbo taxi arrangement. I hope you had a good and pleasant memory together with your family in Arita. I am looking forward to another opportunity to serve you in Japan. Please have a wonderful Christmas Holiday Season. yoshiro
