For someone who falls in love with a country and just can't help going back over and over like me, "toursbylocals" is truly a wonderful find. On this third visit of mine to Japan, I was able to go to two very special places which were a must on my time of visit and unavailable on fixed tours. I saw the beautiful autumn colors of kochia in Hitachi Seaside Park (only at this time of the year) and witnessed an autumn festival in Sawara whose festival happens only twice a year and all thanks to Yumi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Edith, Thank you very much for 5 stars and such a nice comments! For me also, it was my first experience to visit Hitachi Seaside Park and to see Kochia, such a lovely plants! I enjoyed with you so much. The autumn festival in Sawara also was a great memory for me, visiting together both of you. Thank you so much. Yumi
