Fumi is an outstanding guide. My mother is a vegetarian and Fumi found a vegan-friendly restaurant for her near the bus station, and then arranged a taxi to see a couple of shrines and the gorge. She also communicated with our Ryokan to arrange a vegetarian breakfast. She was polite and kind throughout our tour and made it a special visit for us. Thank you Fumi!
Thank you for the compliment. It was a good day for the tour with nice whether. There is a variety of foods in Japan. I would be happy if both of you were able to enjoy a meal. Thank you for joining my tour. And I hope you will come to Japan to enjoy our culture some day again.
We engaged Fumi to assist with translating work. She took to the job with 100 percent professionalism. She knows the region and worked tirelessly for us.
That's too much praise. But I appreciate you telling me that. Thank you. I hope that your work will be successful.
Awesome guide, fantastic time! Highly recommended!
Thank you for your nice comment. How was the first experience of the hot spring and animals in Beppu? There are various hot springs, so if you have a chance, please try other type of the hot springs and other sightseeing spots next time. I hope that Beppu is one of your favorite places.
Fumi met us at the pier to take us to Dazaifu. Very beautiful shrine surrounded by so many impressive years-old camphor and plum trees. The history itself was just fascinating. Before returning to the ship, we had a kaiseki dinner which was so unique in its presentation and flavour.Just exquisite! Thanks Fumi for a wonderful and memorable day in Fukuoka!
Thank you for your comment. It was good that you enjoyed the shrine, dinner and night view. I am glad I could help with your important travel. And I'm very happy to hear that the tour will be a nice memory for all of you.
