A Recent Review of this tour

My family had a lot of fun cycling with Yuji. Our 3-day tour (planned a year ago) was right after the historic rainfall in Hiroshima. It was about the worst time to cycle in the area, but Yuji made our cycling trip memorable. It was difficult to follow our original itinerary because of the landslides and road blocks. Yuji helped us find alternative lodgings that had water and other cycling routes so that we could still enjoy the beautiful islands. Thank you very much, Yuji!
