“ Fun day in the Arashiyama area ”

We had a great day with Zumi-san (Takehiko-san’s nickname) on Oct. 13, 2019 He was great at communicating with us beforehand, and suggested some schedule changes given a big storm coming through. He was knowledgeable about the places we visited and very flexible in terms of making sure we did and saw what we most wanted to see.

Takehiko:

Dear,Amy san and family. Thank you for your taking the service on 13th,Octorber and the message to take time. I'm so pleased to be given such a beautiful comment from you. Best wishes and see you again. Thank you very much. Sincerly Zumi

“ Visit to ancestral home ”

Takehito san was absolutely great. He is a very caring energetic person. We traveled some very narrow twisting mountain roads and felt very safe in his van and with his driving. Once having arrived in our destination, which was a small mountain village, Takehito san was able to fulfill the goals of my trip to Japan. He found someone who remembered my ancestors, found the family grave site and ancestral home. It was a very emotional time for us. We also found a possible relative we did not know existed. I can’t express how great full I am to Takehito san for his great effort and caring attitude. His English skills are also fantastic.

Takehiko:

Dear Jim san. Thank you for your writing a comment about me all the way. It's my pleasure to help you find not only your family grave but also a possible relative. This is what your ancester's power made us lead it . Thank you so much and say hello to your family,particularly cute grand-daughter. King regards Zumi

He is a very careful driver who takes great care of our safety. He communicates well in English and is very thoughtful with his itinerary as we have two seniors in our group.

Takehiko:

“ A memorable trip with an excellent tour guide ”

I would like to thank Zumi for all that he has done for us since we started to organise this family trip over 6 months ago. Every time I sent Zumi a message, he always replied me straight away. There is no problem, be it big or small, that he can’t solve. We found him to be very professional. He is a very easy person to communicate with, he is friendly, approachable, and his professionalism is to be commended. We felt that he truly cared about us, both the kids and adults, and did his best to make this trip memorable. Zumi does many tours and will customize to what you want. All respect for Zumi who rendered incredible service to us on this trip. He is a true model of an excellent tour guide!

Takehiko:

Dear,Ms,Regine. Thank you for your comment about the tour. I am so happy to be given the compliment too much. I wish you a happy life with your good family. Thank you so much. King regards Zumi
