Re-connecting with Relatives in Wakayama

We are Sansei (third generation Japanese American) from California and wanted to reconnect with Wakayama relatives that we lost touch with once our grandparents had passed away. Noriko was very helpful before our tour and helped coordinate a meeting with our relatives. She also was tremendously helpful translating for us while we met with our relatives as we cannot speak Japanese. Noriko was very understanding of what we wanted to do and was very flexible in arranging our tour so we could learn about Wakayama and also, spend time with our relatives. It was a wonderful reunion and we were so thankful to have Noriko as our guide.

Tami Y.

Dear Tami-san, Thank you for your very kind words. I don’t think I could do enough, but, it was so great to meet your family. I had a very nice time. Thank you. Noriko

Visit to Wakayama

I just returned from a trip to Japan which included a trip to a small town just outside of Wakayama City. Noriko helped me locate my relatives. She and I met my cousin and her son. We went to visit my grandparents’ home and the shrine where they are buried. My cousin arranged a short memorial service conducted by the shrine’s priest. Since I don’t speak Japanese she interpreted for me. It was a day I will always cherish. Thank you Noriko for helping to make it happen.

Irene W.

Hello Irene Thank you for your kind review! It is really encouraging for me. I was also glad to be with you on your first visit to your ancestor’s hometown. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Noriko

Lovely lady

Noriko is a lovely lady who travelled 3 hours to be our guide in Koyasan. She was already waiting at our hotel when We arrived from Nara so we were able to start walking with her right away.

Judy C.

Judy Thank you for your review. I’m sorry we couldn’t visit every place we planned because of bad weather. I think I should have prepared for sudden change in weather in the mountain. Please come back to Wakayama . Thank you again and take care.
