Odate dogs and Magewappa

The perfect experience as Akiko organised everything to perfection and was very patient in explaining things. She also had back up plans. We were able to see Akita dogs and the traditional cherry bark craft. Thanks again Akiko and hope to engage your services next time we are Japan.
