Shikoku Island Visit

Takahashi was more than our driver. He was our tour guide and our partner in exploring the island. My daughter and I went to Shikoku for the first time as tourists but also to learn about our family roots which originate in Kochi. Takahashi san helped us on our adventure and his strong knowledge of the history of the area helped us to put the pieces of my family’s history together. We regard Takahashi san as a friend and hope to see him again one day.

Thanks For Your Review. We have passed on your message to Takahashi san. We are glad that you enjoyed your time in Kochi.

Aomori Sites

This was the best money we could have spent. We hired the taxi on 24 December for a 1-day trip. The driver was on time, polite, safe while driving in the snow, and overall a great person to take us around the sites outside of Aomori city. This was an unforgettable trip and I would recommend this to anyone!

Tr taxi R.

Ms.Haylee Coffey. Thank you for your message. It was a very cold day. Spring is the cherry blossom season. There are still many good places in Japan. We look forward to seeing you again. Regards,
