Asako advised us not to go to the cat island rather visiting Daizafu due to the cold weather. It was a trip with great scenery and lots of history. She also took us to the Fukouka National Museum which in itself is a great architechure. Our accidental visit to the ownl cafe was another highlight. My wife loves owls. Asako, grew up in Fukouka, has lots of local knowledge and speaks very good English. Great experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Thank you very much for rating me so highly. Owl cafe was a good experience for me too. I enjoyed very much serving you. You are very curious, intelligent and patient to listen to my explanation. Thank you again for sending me pictures. Asako
What a fantastic way to see a new place! Asako made sure we visited sites we would never have found by ourselves, even with a guide book. She explained and interpreted local culture in a way that helped us get so much more from our visit to this area. Her English is perfect, and she is so friendly. She showed us how to use public transport, and even how to navigate a ramen noodle bar! Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the high rate you gave me. It was a great honor to serve you all. And I'm very impressed that you call me 'Iwai-san'. Were you able to wake up early for the convention? I'm worried that you might have been too exhausted to attend it. Now we are in the middle of the rainy season and we have a lot of rain. We were very lucky to have a beautiful weather, weren't we? Next time, please bring your son and husband. Let's have a cherry blossoms viewing party eating obento boxed lunch!

Excellent guide, worked closely with me to customize her tours to meet our specific goals in Fukuoka, Dazaifu, Kitakyushu, and a nearby town with a Kabuki theater. In particular, I added a tour of the Kyoto National History Museum, which was excellent. Asako paid attention to every detail, including helping us order from the menu at a restaurant at the end of our day. Her English is perfect. Asako has my highest recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Blaine and Debbie, Thank you very much for giving me five stars. How have you been? I remember you very well. I'm very glad to hear from you. Have a happy new year!
