Atsuko is a very organized, knowledgeable, accommodating, and friendly guide. I presented her with some very specific and not necessarily typical interests and Atsuko put together a perfect itinerary. She was also great when I suggested a late change to the itinerary, seamlessly adjusting our plans. I highly recommend her as a guide!
