Hitomi is a great guide knowledgeable in the Kyushu area. She speaks excellent English and translates well. She led me to great food and local Shochu breweries.

Had a very pleasant time and experience with Hitomi T. .... She's very intelligent and easy to communicate with. Her knowledge of the area and it's history was also beneficial as it made Hells Beppu and it's history come alive in my "minds eye"..... Wouldn't hesitate to sign up with her for ANY future tours to japan!!!! Mahalo for a wonderful experience Hitomi ....... Aloha Bruce L.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bruce Mahalo for your kind message. I had a wonderful time with you and yume. I think Beppu is one of the most interesting places in Kyushu, you made a good choice! Hope you'll have time to soak in the hot spring in Beppu in your next visit to Kyushu! Looking forward to seeing you again. Aloha Hitomi

Great tour, very well organized, we enjoyed our day in Nagasaki with Hitomi. Her selection of the local restaurant for lunch was very good and we enjoyed the local cuisine. We are very pleased with our selection of Tours by Locals.

Hitomi is a fun guide very fluent in English and knows everything about the places we visited. She has a good sense of humor and has a good attitude, she is amiable and easy to be with. She was also attentive to my pace because I have a physical problem. Another is she has fun activities for her tour. We enjoyed and learned a lot about flower arrangement from a very good teacher....it was an educational experience. We learned a lot about Fukuoka from her. I will recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Grace, Thank you for the kind words. I enjoyed so much being with your family, you have such a wonderful daughters and a friend. You are fun and easy going, all the guides are lucky to have you. I'm also glad you liked the flower arrangement lesson, you all did great job for the first time! Please enjoy your last day in Japan with your daughter tomorrow:) Arigato- Hitomi

Thank you for the excellent tour of Nagasaki! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hitomi met me at my hotel and helped me navigate the various rail cars to get around town. She also modified her standard tour to allow me to see the sites I was interested in. She is professional and very knowledgeable, speaking excellent English and French, languages acquired from years living abroad. Thank you again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jake, Thank you for your kind message. I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour and I also had a really good time talking with you. It was funny that we both couldn't finish the Chanpon noodle, it was a big bowl. Please visit Kyushu again with your family next time!

Hitomi provided our group with a tour of Fukuoka that was customized to our preferences. She was thoughtful and flexible which resulted in a unique and enjoyable experience. We especially appreciated the ramen noodle dinner for a local tasting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carol, It was a pleasure to spending time with you and your group. I'm glad you enjoyed the custom tour and the ramen! It was a nice experience when we all sit on tatami mats in a small japanese room and had conversation! Thank you for taking my tour, hope to see you again in Kyushu! Hitomi

Hitomi provided an experience that we all want when visiting a place for the first time. It provided us both a historical perspective and a sense of the current state of living. She is personable as well as knowledgeable. She introduced us to ramen at its best Terrific day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating. It was nice talking with you while we waited for 1hour for Yaki ramen! Hope you enjoyed the night. Thank you again for taking my tour.
Spend three days with Hitomi and were really pleased about the schedule. Eventhough we had only a bit of time on our last day, we were able to make most of it and visit a wonderful reclining buddha statue...Thanks Hitomi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, I appreciate your nice comments and I'm very happy that you liked my tour schedule. Three days passed so fast but I hope you made lots good memories while you were in Japan! Arigato gozaimashita:)
This private tour was the highlight of our short stay in Japan. We went to different kinds of hells and were able to try a traditional japanese nature onsen (bath) with Hitomi. Thanks again for the perfect organisation and the interesting facts...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to take you to Beppu. I'm glad you enjoyed your first experience of Onsen(hot spring). The bath was a bit hot as you said, but very relaxing with the beautiful landscape! I will remember this beautiful day with you two. Thank you again.
Hitomi is a wonderful, very friendly tourguide. We were able to get a good overview of Fukuoka City in only one day because of her knowledge and the personalized program (made of her). During our tour we noticed her as a flexible and accommodating person. We really enjoyed the time we spent with her and recommend booking tours with Hitomi. S and P from Germany
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review! I had a wonderful time with you and am glad that you enjoyed your stay in Fukuoka. It was a short time stay in Japan, please come back to Kyushu again so I get to take you to different places. Thanks again for choosing my tour, I was happy to show you around the city. Hitomi
