Taka and Taku are well-mannered, cheerful and easy to get along with.
Using his own camera, Taka took very good & nice photos of my family under the rows of cherry blossoms lined by rape blossom shrubs on the ground. This was a pleasant surprise.
Another was when they both pointed us to a special japanese whiskey which was being sold at a good price in one of the stores.
A point for improvement would be for them to check that the place to be visited is accessible / open as the Shodenzan temple in our itinerary was closed that day due to a private event.
However, these two men are genuinely nice people who just need more experience and practice in speaking English. Once they do, they will surely become very good guides in the future.
