Interesting Trip to Sado Island

My wife and I spent an enjoyable day on Sado Island with Kei. The weather was great and the Cherry trees were in full bloom. The island was beautiful. The tour was not limited to facts, figures and dates. Being from the island, Kei’s familiarity with the plants, animals and historical sites gave us an insider’s perspective. We took the Jet Foil from Niigata to Ryotsu. Stayed overnight on Sado Island and began our tour in the morning. Our tour began about 8AM and we finished at the ferry terminal in Ryotsu. Kei speaks excellent English and is very flexible and likeable. We did not feel rushed. If you are looking for a guide for Sado Island, we highly recommend Kei.

Great experience with Kei-san

Kei was great. His English is very good. He went above and beyond. He is a great guy and very knowledgeable about Sado. He truly practices the hospitality level of omotenashi. After a short while itfeels like you are with a good friend, because that is what he is to us now. I would definitely recommend Kei.

Keiichi S.
