Linda san, Thank you very much for your great and inspired review for me. It was great time for me to support you,your family and your friends with total 14 people for Mt.Fuji tour. We visited Mt.Fuji area such as Lake-Kawaguchi, Fugaku-Fuketsu, Mt.KachiKachi viewing by Ropeway, Ohhashi bridge hiking over Lake Kawaguchi, Ohishi park and Oshino Hakkai by using a Micro bus. The weather on the day was very fine and I was pleased that all your group could see no more beautiful Mt.Fuji at every visiting spots with the shape of different angle. Specially, I was very much impressed that all 8 kids enjoyed snow and throwing snowball each other which were piled up on the area because they saw actual snow at the first time there. Also, we could enjoy exchanging lots of conversation with you and your group about Japanese history, culture, famous people and daily life comparing with that in your country. I am looking forward to meeting with you again in near future. Thanks, Kashima

Hiroshima Day Tour

I organised this tour on behalf of a teenager who is fascinated with the Yamato battleship so this tour had to be very customised and Kashima-San lived up to the challenge! The boy really enjoyed himself. The guide spoke good English, very polite and respectful and he was flexible with the schedule. In fact the family said that they would highly recommend Kashima-San to others who visits Hiroshima!

Kashima H.

I-Lin san, Thank you very much for your great and utmost review for me. It was great time for me to support your mother and your family for Hiroshima tour. We visited Yamato-museum where we could see the models (1/10) of Battleship named “Yamato” and lots of other ships and actual objects of submarine & airplane “Zero fighter plane”. There are many historical background explanations, photos and actual objects & ship models exhibited which are historically very important ones manufactured before and during World War2. Also, we visited Atomic bomb dome and Peace memorial museum. I am pleased that we could enjoyed a lot. Specially, your mother's young boy is so clever and has lots of knowledge about Yamato and related Japanese history. I am so much impressive for him. He has so strong curiosity about the tour spots history and we could exchange lots of information each other. I am looking forward to meeting with you and your family again in near future.
