Toru was a wonderful guide. He was very soft spoken and made you feel comfortable. Despite the rainy weather he made it worth your while. The place he suggested to have lunch was a plus. We loved the food. I would definitely recommend Toru to whoever wants to go see Akita.
Mr. Toru was a fantastic guide. Our great was very happy with the tour. It was a safe and happy experience.
Hi, Kim san, Cory san and Kris san, Thank you for your comment. Please enjoy your stay in Japan. I hope to see you again in Akita in the future. Toru
Toru was a very good guide, though other guides elsewhere had a microphone and speaker whilst in the vehicle. The 2 guests in the back of the van very much struggled to hear his guidance. The day was very wet, Toru amended the tour on the fly and we had excellent visits to the Namahage village and the hydrangea temple. Very nice and friendly gentleman, Driver was also excellent.
Dear Angus, Thank you for your comment. I enjoyed talking to you guys. The rainy season is over, and the hot summer has started in Akita. I hope you come back to Akita to see the gorge and lake you missed this time. Very best regards, Toru
Akiko was amazing -- she customized this trip for my client and despite flooding made arrangements for her to see everything she wanted to see. She made special arrangements for her to see a shrine (the main purpose of the trip ) when the road was closed and the shrine was closed - she got her in anyway!! Per my client - she was worth every yen!! Thanks for making the a special trip.
Becky, Safety was the most important under such weather conditions. I was so happy that your client could enjoy several spots in the city, and visit the shrine, and depart Akita earlier. We found out at the airport that her original flight had been canceled. I hope she enjoyed the rest of her stay in Japan! Best regards to her. Thank you! Akiko
