Thank you so much for offering this service. It offers a great cultural exchange with the local people of Japan and visitors from abroad. We understand that language is a barrier sometimes when visiting, and it is so nice to see people like Kohei reaching out to people like us.
Kohei Ueda was incredibly generous with his time and his vast knowledge of his own culture. It was nice to see things from the perspective of someone who lives in Tokyo. Taking us off the beaten path and showing us food that we otherwise would have never thought to try or even know about, Kohei opened our eyes to a broader range of what Tokyo has to offer.
In an effort to enhance his English, we thought Kohei’s English to be excellent. We were able to communicate with each other easily, and his friendly nature was much appreciated. We hope to keep in touch with each other in the future!
