Dear friends of TFG:
One year ago I start preparing our trip to Japan. At first it was only for my family, but little by little more friends were joining and, finally, we were a group of 12. Looking for information of Japan in Internet I found TFG’s page and put in touch with them.
In spite of the difficulties to guide such a numerous group, the staff of guides achieved that our vacations were fantastic, and they helped us to know not only nice places, but also a magnificent culture. Months before our arrival to Japan I began to correspond by mail with the equipment of guides of TFG, I believe that before they had never had such a numerous group.
On Thursday we visit the zones of Harajyuku and Shibuya with the friendliest and affectionate Mrs. Megumi Muro and Mrs. Kazumi. It was a fantastic morning visiting these so known zones. The day culminated with the Tea’sceremony that the nice and charming Mrs. Junko Murakami organized us in the Hotel Okura.
On Friday we visit Kamakura and Yokohama, where we were waited by Mr. Akio Watanabe and his partners Mr. and Mrs. Honda, and Mrs. Hideko Shimizu. What a funny and nice group.
We visit Hacedera, Kotoku-In and Tsurugaoka Hachiman-Gu. After having lunch in Kamakura we go to Yokohama where we visit Chuka-Gai and Minato Mirai. We end the night in an “Izakaya”, with Norma Yoshimi, his so charming teacher of Spanish.
For our last day in Tokyo we were accompanied with the greats and kindly Mrs. Junko Murakami and Mrs. Reiko Yoshikawa. We visit the park Koganei, Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum and Hamonika Yokocho in Kichijoji.
Thanks to the generous and affectionate group of TFG we have such a fantastic holidays, and we love so much Japan that we think to repeat soon, though surely we will not be so many people.
Best regards to the whole equipment of TFG.
