Tour: Blue Zone Okinawa Tour for Sameer and Tim on April 15 (Day Five), Okinawa, Japan
Date: Apr 15/19

Had a sanshin lesson with a wonderful elderly couple, which was the perfect way to wrap up our 5-day blue zone tour. Highly highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a comprehensive overview/understanding/immersion in the Okinawan blue zone culture. I've been to 2 of the other 5 blue zones and this was really the best way to see a blue zone! Kumiko is attentive, thorough, and always ready to help adjust the tour to your needs. Was a packed schedule with unforgettable experienxe

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sameer san, thank you so so much for your kind review despite of your busy schedule. I am happy to know that you liked the customized tour! I just tried to make it something that gives you a good idea for your new business with elderly people. I really appreciate that you gave me a wonderful opportunity of creating the blue zone tour. It was fun to tour around Okinawa with you as we made good friends with local senior citizens! I hope you will visit Okinawa again to make them happy and live longer!

Tour: Blue Zone Okinawa Tour for Sameer and Tim on April 14 (Day Four), Okinawa, Japan
Date: Apr 14/19

Amazing tour with an early morning start participating in a radio morning workout with Okinawan elders (average age of the elders was 82!). We then had a 2 hour karate session with a famous 74 year old sensei... such unique experiences that left us with an even deeper understanding of this blue zone's culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sameer san, Thank you very much for your kind review. I am happy to know that you deepened your understanding of the longevity of Okinawa: not only in Ogimi Village but also in other parts of Okinawa, there are still secrets you can find from the culture and lifestyle of Okinawa. I am looking forward to our Day 5!

Action packed tour learning about vegetable art, gateball, and doing the minpaku program (home stay) with a wonderful elderly couple. Kumiko-san's knowledge about everything Okinawan is impressive and she is very diligent, attentive and helpful! We learned a lot on this tour about Okinawan culture and enjoyed being so close to the locals

Tour: Blue Zone Okinawa Tour for Sameer and Tim on April 11 (Day One), Okinawa, Japan
Date: Apr 11/19

Kumiko-san picked us up from the airport with a thoughtful, handcrafted welcome sign - so cute! She was exceptionally knowledgeable about everything to do with Okinawa, longevity, and the blue zones. She got us invited to a very unique experience with Okinawan elderly people at their community centre where we enjoyed karaoke and dancing with the elders. Also enjoyed the fresh food market where we ate a delicious lunch. Can't wait for the next 4 days!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sameer san, thank you very much for your kind review! Your participation in the event at the community hall made the senior citizens very happy! Also I am happy to know my favorite farmers market! I will be looking forward to our next 4 days as well!

Tour: Full-Day Okinawa Private Tour for Mr. Leif Öster, Okinawa, Japan
Date: Apr 6/19

A perfect introduction to Okinawa We had a nice day with our guide. Our ambitious guide Kumiko gave us an good introduction to the island. She made a tailormade day with history, gardens and local food. Our guide have a lot of important knowledge and she work with a very god driver with a nice car. The only little problem is that the Okinawa-English is little hard to understand for us coming from Sweden

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Leif Öster, Thank you very much for your kind review! I am happy that all of your group members enjoyed the customized tour. I will try to speak English more slowly and clearly. I hope you will visit Okinawa again to explore more charms about the beautiful islands! With Warmest Regards, Kumiko T.
