I discussed changing the itinerary, which Mr.Kota changed for me without any problem and offered Other places instead.He took us to the zipline in Hakone.which my children really liked even though it was raining on the day I went.Take our to eat black eggs including an Onsen.Then I asked him to take me to a local restaurant. As it turned out, it was a small restaurant but the food was very delicious.I will come back again. .He speaks Thai and English very well. Thank you so much
