Tadashi san saved my trip! I was in Japan from the 29th to 6th of April for the Cherry blossom season. From 29th to 31st i was in Fukuoka. The first two days I had a really bad inflamed throat and thankfully on the 30th when I had my tour, Tadashi san took me to the drug store and get me sorted with the right med on top on all the sightseeing spots we went to that day. He really went the extra miles with his preparation for the tour with all the documents and pamphlets. If you are visiting Fukuoka, then Tadashi san is your go to guide!
My family and I enjoyed our special day with Tadashi. He is knowledgeable, personable and is eager to please. He went above and beyond his duty and was flexible with the time we had with him. Although we had been to the Fukuoka area before, we didn't know much about the history or highlights. But, this time, with Tadashi's expertise, we learned a lot and visited places we had not known about before. His command of English is excellent and has a good sense of humor. Definitely, we would hire him again the next time we are in the Fukuoka area.
Hi Patti and your family Thank you for your nice comment. I'm glad to hear that all of you have enjoyed the trip in Fukuoka. Talking with you and your family was a lot of fun and exciting for me. Next time, be sure to come back to Fukuoka with your daughter. Thank you again. Tadashi
Incredible day with Tadashi. Just what I was looking for. Full day, great communicator, filled with knowledge, very personable and fun to be with. Excellent guide.
Thank you for your nice review. Your cruise ship arrived two hours later then we missed the OPEN TOP BUS TOUR. Instead, luckily, we enjoyed the Hojyoya Festival, one of the three festivals in Fukuoka and had delicious Ramen at Ramen Stadium. Be sure to come to Fukuoka with your wife at the end of March, Sakura Season. I will look forward to seeing you again. Tadashi
