Great day, time well spent!

Hitomi-san was a great travel companion! She's well informed, patient and fun to be with - we also managed to see most of the important spots in the city because of her good planning :)

Hitomi T.

Christmas Day With Hitomi

We enjoyed our Christmas Day in Fukuoka with Hitomi San. She took us to see the “happening” places in Fukuoka, made sure all the kids and seniors in our big group were comfortable. The pace was slow and easy for us as we requested. The children loved her and we all had a great time! She also helped us get tickets to a circus show in the New year. Hitomi San is highly recommended!

Hitomi T.

Hi Catherine, Thank you for the review! I also had a really good time with your family. They were all sweet and kind to me, it was a great Christmas day for me too, thank you. Hope you spend a good time in Fukuoka and make lots of sweet memories! Best regards, Hitomi

First visit to Fukuoka

Hitomi was a great guide for us in Fukuoka. Communication in English was clear and easy. She knew the city well and explained much to us regarding historical, as well as contemporary issues in the area. She was fun to talk to, making it a very enjoyable day.

Good getaway from city! Takachiho is located in the northwest of Miyazaki. Although it takes more than 3.5 hours to get there from Fukuoka, it is worth visiting to see those beautiful sceneries.
