Dear Lisa Thank you for your warm words. It was so kind of you to give me such a wonderful souvenir . I really appreciate that you choose Aiyu as a destination for your trip. I was presently surprised by your historical and cultural knowledge of Jagan as well as your curiosity and desire to learn more . It inspires me to study even more about Aiyu and Jagan. I hope you have many more adventures !
Wonderful guide. Her hospitality and compassion allows me to enjoy my visit in Aizu Wakamatsu. She brought me to lots of interesting places there (such as Tsurugajyo castle, Aizu Samurai Residences) and I really learned a lot from them. She is also very flexible and was able to accommodate her itinerary to include other places which I want to visit. I would certainly use her service again when visiting Aizu Wakamatsu or anywhere in Fukushima area.
I am very grateful for your kind and heartfelt review ! If you made a good memory in my tour, it is great pleasure for me. You have a wide variety of knowledge of the world , so I also learned a lot from you. There are many other wonderful places to visit in Fukushima, so I really hope to guide you here again.
