Konnichiwa Minnie! I just want to say thank you very much for showing us around Osaka, Nara,Kyoto, Miyajima, and Hiroshima for 3 days. We really enjoyed our time with you and learned about the beauty of Japanese culture. You went above and beyond of what was expected during our brief time together.
