We had a wonderful day in Sado with Fujiko. She was responsive starting the first message we exchanged and throughout the whole process. She helped us booked a local rental car in Sado, which we would not be able to do on our own from 5000 miles away. We noticed this local shop was the only one opened (and all the Japanese went to) when we arrived. She took care of all the rental car details/questions, and even took calls during the trip from the car company, which we without a local phone, really appreciate. The day in Sado was nice and smooth. She took us to local markets, rice fields, and temples that we only saw local people which made us feel 'privileged' to be part of. At the temple, she took us to the back and pointed out the very unique spot we would never discover even if we made to the temple on our own. We still talked about the wonderful local produce including fresh and seasonal apple juice, grapes, etc. We brought back a couple small bags of rice home. For the first time, we can smell the fragrance of the rice and it tastes so good that we don't even want to eat other dishes! The price is so reasonable and only a fraction of what one can find in Tokyo. Fujiko fulfilled all our asks and provided more during a short 6-hour day. There are so many things I can go on talking about that day, but one thing for sure is that we would not have the experience we got with her if we visit Sado any other way. We are so glad that we found her and decided to go on a tour like this. We will forever remember Sado and hope to come back someday. Thank you, Fujiko!
Dear Jennifer san Thank you very much for writing such a wonderful review of Sado tour. I'm really happy that you enjoyed being in Sado and still remember the day and places we've visited. Sado is not well known to foreign tourists yet and don't have world famous sightseeing places like Kyoto but we have a lot to offer. I understand that your luggage was heavy with rice bags but it was worth bringing back. I will work hard to make my guests fulfilled and happy while they are in Sado or other places like Niigata. Yes, I hope to see you again and be your guide!! Until then, please take care and have fun. Arigato, Fujiko
