    This is our first time travelling to what everyone we speak to tells us is a beautiful and friendly country to see and visit. This being the case we would love to explore as much of it as possible seeing any of your cultural, botanical and heritage sights.


    Thank you for your time.

    Kind regards

    I am a former onboard port lecturer/destination expert on Japan for a major cruise line. I started my company to assist cruise passengers that want to explore the ports independently. We have a private guide service and often assist passengers with various levels of mobility.

    Our US HQ in Los Angeles is a full-service travel agency, and I split my time between LA and Japan.  I am currently in Los Angeles, so please contact me directly at your earliest convenience, so I can get some more details about your situation.  Ideally, we would schedule a video call, so I can make sure I understand your needs.  My Skype ID is Heather.Hopkins.Clement

    Hi Heather,

    Thank you for responding, it would be good to speak to you but due the time difference this would be difficult as we live in Adelaide, South Australia.

    If you can let me know if there are any details I can give you via email or if we work out a way of communicating with Skype, I am open to any suggestions.

    Sure, I do video calls with clients all over the world, and often have customers from Australia.  No problem.  I can do Skype, Google Hangouts Meet, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, Facetime, or Whatsapp.  Just email me your preference, relevant ID, and availability, and we’ll make it happen.

    Thanks Heather,

    My Skype ID is Gary Moxham. However, I should point out I am a novice at this stuff.

    I am usually available after 2pm except on Tuesday and Friday where I am not available to after 4.30pm until about 6 – 6.30pm. Due to carer visits for dinner etc.

    Thank you for your time.
