Sayaka did a great job! She also works as a flight attendant. That’s why she is very polite and tries to fullfill all of her customers‘ requests. She has a great knowledge of the region, japanese culture and history. Her English is flawless and she is also fluent in Swedish. I would highly recommend her service and would like to book her again coming back to Japan. She also gave great advice to us finding some beautiful sampuru pieces in Kappa Street and exploring a great spot to enjoy some soba for lunch. Once again thank you very much, Sakaya-San!
