Excellent guide. Well prepared tour.

He is so friendly and very knowledgeable about local history and japanese mythology. His itinerary was well preplanned. I would not have been able to explore all the places we did on my own. Thanks Hideo san!

Hello Pobparat I'm very happy to receive your message. Favored by good weather, we could enjoy visiting Kumano three Grand Shrines such as Kumano Nachi Taisha, Hongu Taisha, and Hayatama Taisha. Furthermore we watched Nachi Waterfalls with a height of 133 meters, the longest drop in Japan. I look forward to your activities and success in your life. Thank you, Tua.
