Kagoshima Tour Reviews

Wonderful tour of Kagoshima!

Moriaki gave the four of us an excellent tour of several fascinating sites in Kagoshima. He was extremely organized and kept us on schedule throughout the day. He provided outstanding narration and history on the places we visited and made the day interesting. He organized a very enjoyable lunch for us at an authentic local restaurant. Overall Moriaki provided a fascinating glimpse into the history of Japan and a most memorable day.

Robert  R.

Robert R.-san I hope you are well. Thank you for your wonderful review. I hope you have returned home safely. I would be very happy if you could learn some of the good things about Japan and Kagoshima on this trip. I think it will be easier to understand why Japan has become such a livable and prosperous country by looking back at history. Also, I think we can change the future. I believe that this is a worthwhile endeavor. If you have the opportunity, please come to Kagoshima again. I wish you all the best. Thank you. Moriaki

Not our favorite tour

Of 8 private tours we booked on a recent (cruise) visit to Japan, this was our least favorite. All 6 of us found our guide a nice guy who tried his best but was very difficult to understand. His English was heavily accented, his vocabulary more limited than other guides, and he spoke so softly that he was often inaudible. While we did all the things we planned to do, there was a passivity in the way he led the tour -- often not recognizing the group's desire to move on from a particular spot - which resulted in people wandering off on their own.

Howard G.

Thank you for taking the time to review my tour, Howard. I apologize for not meeting your expectations. Thank you for your honest feedback about my tour. I appreciate you taking the time to do so. I will take your feedback into account and use it to improve. I hope you will consider booking the tour again the next time you visit Kagoshima. Moriaki

Amazing Kagoshima historical tour with Moriaki

I had an amazing full day Kagoshima historical tour with Moriaki. He was so kind and professional with his explanation so I learn to appreciate Kagoshima's historical past, especially regarding Saigo Takamori, Meiji reformation and St Francis Xavier's first mission here. Thank you for guiding me in this tour and I would highly recommend everyone to use his service in future.

Alexander R.

Thank you Alex for your wonderful review. It's very encouraging for me. I believe that Kagoshima's history is also one of the keys to unlocking Kagoshima's treasure chest. I would be happy if Alex could discover the key and create lasting memories. thank you. Moriaki
