“ Fabulous tour with amazing guide. ”

Miwi is a wonderful guide and a great person! She made our day fascinating and so informative! Maps, depictions on her drawing pad (even writing each of our names in Japanese characters!) seeking out experiences we never would have had trying to do any of this on our own! We were three hours late getting off the ship but she was there, waiting for us with her infectious laugh and amazing smiles! We saw everything on our plan and truly, it was a wonderful six hours with her. Her English is easy to understand and her information is great! We are honored to be her guests! We were blessed with great guides throughout our Japan cruise with our port by port arrangement of private local guides for touring. It would be very hard to pick ‘the best’ but if I had to choose, it would be Miwi. read more

Miwi:

Dear Ms. Sherrill! It is my honor I could show you my loving places and you enjoyed them. I also was amazed quite that we did see everything in your itinerary in spite of the three hours delay. It could be done because of your cooperation. I am so much appreciated and blessed you are my guests. I don't know if it is "in spite of" or "because of", it was an unforgettable day with a lot of incidents including the delay of the dock for me, too. I am looking forward I have at least another chance we are seeing each other again!

“ one day in Aomori ”

Miwi did organize our tour perfect in advnce and met us at the cruise ship Terminal with a very nice Taxi Driver. It was a very relaxing tour and we did See most of the local Highlights. The Hirosaki Castle, the Summer Festival museum and teh Japaners sword studio are a must. We thank Mewi for this nice day.

Miwi:

Hello Herr Berne! Honestly telling you, I had been anxious if I could let you enjoy the rainy day. Thanks for telling me you liked the itinerary. I would be happy if I have another chance to show you more in northern Japan. I’ll be looking forward you to enjoy all the moment on your adventure and we’ll see each other again. I tell your message to the Driver Takahashi-San.

“ Tamagawa hot spring and natural hot bed rock is a must to visit ”

First met Miwi san in Akita airport, her laugher made my day with happiness, and felt welcome to Akita. She explains every thing in details. So happy to have her as our tour guard. Will come again to Akita .

“ An excellent guide ”

Bright and bubbly, cheerful. Totally in touch with and responsive to our group at all times. Excellent group control in a very nice way. Excellent English, thorough knowledge of local history and customs, as well as Japan in general. Very good at giving examples, including those from her own life. Wonderful personality. Would definitely ask for her again!!

Miwi:

My dear Mr. Bob! How sweet of you to find me out through all the tour guides in Japan and gave me the chance to guide you and your friends. And I am so much appreciated to hear you could enjoy your AKita tour. Akita has a lot more I want you to see, I would keep praying the day to come. I wish you and all your friends to enjoy every moment during your cruise and after it. Thank you very much that I enjoyed being with you.

“ A truly welcoming and upbeat person who set up our time brilliantly ”

We arrived in Akita aboard a cruise ship with 5 hours for touring. Our main interest was visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Akita. Miwi met us at the dock with an enthusiastic welcome that matched her bright style. She understood well our priorities and planned perfectly. Besides the Shrine, there was a special coffee house and and the opportunity to taste local highly reputed Sakes. With excellent English and great communication skills, she gave us a full understanding of the region, town and Shrine. When we think of Akita, Miwi's special personality will always come to the forefront. Steve and Pilar Stein, Coral Gables, Florida

Miwi:

Dear Mr.Steve and Mrs.Pilar, The day your tour guide enjoyed to guide you in cherry blossoms is so memorable. This must be a bless of the Lady. I am talking not only about the memory of the beautiful day but also the happy review you wrote for me. I know I must be the blessed one that you found me through this TripleLights site. I always wish you to be more blessed than I am that you came far Akita to see the Lady. I wish to let you enjoy more sake (rice wine and your interest, double meaning LOL) . I am so appreciated I could be a friend of yours.

“ Excellent Day with Miwi ”

We were a party of 8 from a cruise ship that stopped for the day in Aomori. Miwi had an excellent day planned for us. We first visited a Samari Blacksmith shop, then went to the Seiben Garden. We then spent about 2 hours at the Cherry Blossum Festival at Hirosaki Castle. We got to see the Festival in process and had lunch then. We finished with the Neputamura museum. We had a full and great day with Miwi. Miwi is an excellent guide and a very likable person. Our driver was also excellent. We had a full and great day in Aomori.

Miwi:

Dear Barbara!! I am so appreciated I could be Your tour guide! It was really a wonderful day that I could be a part of your group. Northern Japan has a lot more to visit and I keep expecting to have another chance to guide you again. Thanks a lot for your nice review also. with love, Miwi

“ I love Oga! ”

Miwi is a bundle of energy and joy and I was grateful that I booked her for my tour. If I could have added more days to my tour, I would have added more days in Akita and hired Miwi for the extra days. She is full of spirit and has a great love for her country and especially Akita. Make sure to see the Namahage Museum and enjoy the performance there.

Miwi:

Dear Don, The day I had been with you was marvelous! I enjoyed to guide you Oga, but I am sooo happy to know YOU enjoyed it. It was so cold we had snow on the previous day but now you can be in full of cherry blossoms in Akita. I would love to show you all the four different seasons of Akita, and I am quite sure you'll love them. Thanks a lot you found me through this TripleLights site. I am looking forward to read more in your blogs, and expecting we can see each other some day again. with the appreciation more than I can describe, Miwi

“ A memorable day tour ”

Miwi-san is an excellent guide and perfect for exploring the hidden gems of Akita! She was able to offer a very personalised tour considering my interests which made me feel very special. From the efficient coordination with the staff in the places we visited to the wonderful lunch recommendation, I really enjoyed my day tour with her!

Miwi:

My dear Ms. Maria, I am so appreciated to know you enjoyed your day in Akita. It really had been a blessing for me that I could meet Our Lady of Akita with you. It is snowing in Akita today again, I am sure you are well blessed that no rain nor snow bothered you to have your tour. I would love to show you all four different seasons in Akita, so I’ll be looking forward to have another chance to see each other. With too much appreciation to tell you, Miwi

“ Best tour guide available anywhere ”

As a seasoned ocean cruise traveler, who along with my wife have used many different private tour guides for our numerous shore excursions, Miwi is arguably the best private tour guide we ever had. She speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable about Akita and it's surrounding areas. Her expert commentary on the samurai house, the tea house visit and lunch, and the beautiful Tazawako Lake are all memorable. The highlight of our tour was the walk through the Dakigaeri Gorge to the Mikaeri-no-taki waterfall. The two thirds mile walk to the waterfall is a must. To see the beautiful blue water contrasting with the beautiful white boulders and the green foilage is unbelievable. And the falls are a sight to see. I wish I could add pictures I took in them. Maybe Miwi will post s... read more

Miwi:

I should mention that you made me cry quite!! Thank you is not enough at all to show my appreciation that you became my precious guests and gave me such a wonderful comment to my tour. The Koa Clock on my fireplace will always cheer me up. I miss you and your party, but am looking forward that we will have another chance to see each other again!! Hoping all my appreciation can be reached to you!

“ Visit to Oga ”

Miwi did a very good job explaining the history in Oga. She took us to many places within the peninsula and took the time to stop and see the best views. She is friendly and very considerate. I would defintely hire her again.

Miwi:

Hi, Elson-san, I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed Oga with me. I had been worrying about your journey after Akita. Thank Our Lady of Akita she has blessed and protected you. I am looking forward I will have another chance to show you Aktia more!

“ Akita experience ”

Very helpful, very accommodating, well prepared and very knowledgeable about places we went in Akita. Joyful, friendly and happy to be with her for the whole day.

Miwi:

Thank you for your review and I am happy to know you enjoyed Akita. I am so pleased I could accompany your group to the Miracle Convent on the Transfiguration Day. I am looking forward I can show you more Akita and Aomori someday. I'll be waiting to see you again.

Come and visit Tohoku the north-earstern Japan!
I can give you unforgettable memory of Akita and Aomori trip.
Shirakami Mountain Range, the First World Natural Heritage stated in Japan in 1993 is here.
Enjoy old traditional local lives of Japan which totally differs from that in big cities.

Tohoku is broad that I often must request you for my hotel stay.
Thank you for your understanding that the transportation and hotel fee may be required beside the guide fee. The place your tour guide lives is quite far from cities. The price depends on which city to go and ask me freely.
