“ Kokura Castle ”

We had a short tour of Kokura castle and its adjacent shrine. Kao suggested an itinerary that works best for our family. She was very detailed in providing historical information as well. Would definitely recommend her as a guide.


Hi Shirley, Thank you so much for your good comment on the tour. Although it was crowded at the bullet train station due to holiday rush, everything went well thanks to you and your family's corporation! Hope to see you again someday!

“ Nagasaki Japan ”

Kao was an excellent guide very knowledgeable and caring. Nothing was any trouble, my husband has a bad back and Kao took particular care to make sure he didn’t have to walk too far. She took us to the Spectacle Bridge which was fun. All in all I would highly recommend Kao as an excellent guide Sue Barty


Thank you very much for your kind message. The itinerary is always flexible since this is your holiday! I had a great time talking about wide variety of topics with you. Hoping to see you soon in Japan or Australia. Your comment motivated me to work as a professional guide. Thank you so much. Kao
