Wonderful day in Hososhima-visited sites we agreed upon, had added enjoyment of experiencing extra cultural and language information. Very helpful with husband, a slow and unsteady walker.

Dear Barbara and Brian Thank you for your kind evaluation. I’m so glad to know that you enjoyed the trip in Miyazaki. I too had a wonderful day spending with such nice persons as you both are. I’ll treasure the picture of you and the driver taken at the pier as one of the fondest memories in my life. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and go back to your hometown safe and sound. Sincerely your tour guide Junko

Excellent tour guide

Good English-speaking Japanese tour guide is hard to come by, Junko is one of the few. She worked very hard to make the best day out of our limited tour. Highly recommended
