Excellent Knowledge and Personality

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

What a day!

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.

Tadashi M.

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

One day stress free tour in Yanagawa.

Mr Tadashi is a thoughtful and knowledgable gentleman. He communicates with me on quite a few occasions, to make sure I have a good understanding of the tour, and even updated me on the weather few days before. My wife does not consume eel but that happened to be the only dish the rerestaurant serves for lunch. He help in solving the problem, and even brought a cold pack on the day just in case she buys something that needed chilling! When my friend needed to buy some local products, he went out of the way to bring him to a shop at the end of the tour. His command of English is adequate to make the trip informative and enjoyable. I certainly would use him as my guide again should the occasion arises.

Tadashi M.

Dear Yean-san Thank you very much for the warm-hearted review. I am so happy that you had a good time. Chatting with all of you have made me very enjoyable and will be a memorable memory for me. Looking forward to seeing you in the near future. Thank you again and wishing you good health and happiness. Tadashi
