A Recent Review of this tour

Fukuoka was a very pleasant surpise for us and Mayumi was an excellent guide. After visiting a local shrine and temple we got a lesson on the Buddhist cycle of life from Mayumi. As a special favor to me she helped me find a present for my daughter-in-law. She knew exactly where I could find this present and was so accommodating to our group. I would highly recommend her for anyone wanting to get to know Fukuoka.
