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!
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
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.
Dear Eric Thank you for sharing your time with me in Fukuoka. It was a pleasure to meet you all and I had so much fun introducing you to this city. Please come back to Kyushu again for more interesting places!
Hitomi did an absolutely fantastic job in providing us a wonderful nine hour tour of Nagasaki. She is gracious, knowledgeable and forever providing great tour information. We would recommend her to anyone. Denny and Barbara Alvey
Hello Denny and Barbara Thank you for your kind review, I'm happy that you had good time. It was a pleasure to guide and introduce you to this fantastic city. I hope you come back again to Kyushu island so I can take you to other beautiful and interesting sites! Hitomi
After meeting at the hotel where my daughter and I stayed in Fukuoka, all of us went to the station to go to Nagasaki. Right when we arrived in Nagasaki, Hitomi talked about Nagasaki and its history and a lot more information that we didn't know about before. She explained things clearly, had taught my daughter how to do origami and also taught her how to properly rinse and pray at the temple. She had also brought us to a great restaurant for lunch. I highly recommend Hitomi because of how informative she is and she also has great English.
I'm glad you enjoyed the tour in Nagasaki. Yes, Nagasaki is a very interesting and unique place that I love taking people there. It was nice climbing all the 193steps with you, hope you liked the view from the shrine! Please come back to Kyushu again for Takachiho next time! Hitomi
