बढ़िया था ये Experience. मजा आया इस Experience में. 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 घर बैठे बैठे Tokyo घूमने का मज़ा ही कुछ और है. एक बार तो ये Experience देखना ही चाहिए...आखिर Olympics तो आते ही चार साल में एक बार हैं...ना जाने फिर ये Experience कब देखने को मिलेगा ! 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 मेरे Five Stars इस Experience के लिए ! बिलकुल Olympics के logo में Five Rings की तरह. 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 India ने अच्छी शुरुआत करी Olympics में और पहले दिन ही Silver Medal जीत लिया. India ने Olympics में 1 Gold, 2 Silver और 4 Bronze Medal जीत लिए. मैं तो India के सभी athletes के लिए Bollywood का ये मशहूर गाना गाना चाहूंगा - कुछ करिए कुछ करिए नस नस मेरी खोले ! हाय कुछ करिए कुछ करिए कुछ करिए ! बस बस बड़ा बोले अब कुछ करिए हो कोई तो चल ज़िद्द फड़िए तू बिदरिये या मरिये हो कोई तो चल ज़िद्द फड़िए तू बिदरिये या मरिये चक दे हो चक दे इंडिया चक दे हो चक दे इंडिया ! (गाना खत्म). लेकिन India ही क्यों, मैं तो यही कहना चाहता हूं की सभी countries के सभी athletes ने अच्छा प्रदर्शन करा. सभी को मेरी तरफ से शुभकामनाएं. 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 Japan की 13 साल की Gold Medal winner "Momiji Nishiya" को विशेष बधाई. 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 Japan के सभी लोगों और Hosts को बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद, Olympics और Airbnb Online Experiences के लिए ! 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 इस Review के अंत में, मैं तो बस यही कहना चाहूंगा - East or West "Japanese Samurai" are the Best ! ARIGATO JAPAN !!! 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵

This tour is very good for all who want to know about Fukushima prefecture, Tohoku, Japan. You may feel beauty of the Japanese culture with own eyes and ear. Furthermore, you are surely impressed by the last present from a host. Recommended!
