We toured with Ikue for 3 days seeing some of the lovely sights in and around Kumamoto. Ikue was very helpful in her communications before the trip, responding to our interests, and developing itineraries to suit. Before our trip, and at her own initiative, she also communicated with our hotel and car rental company to ensure that we got the best deal. Ikue's English is excellent, and she is very well prepared with background information and maps in folders. We were so pleased to get to know Ikue.
