    An insider's view of history

    Yumi-san is an experienced, professional and friendly guide. The day felt like a trip with a friend who knows her way around and can share helpful information on the historical and cultural perspective of the sites visited. The port visit gave us some refreshing insights to the US-Japan relationship.
