To discribe, a place as such, is to try to define karma; one is not able but only practice the act. The operators have a unique practice of sharing, caring, and, engaging with customers. Individuals of this nature are special to humanity. It is far...More

實在很慶幸有機會認識Norman 一家,既因為他們可能是四國唯一一家能租用單車兩星期的服務,更因為能結交他們這些友善可靠的朋友。一路上,他們給予很多熱心的幫助,給我們地道的建議、替我們聯絡住宿等,甚至還接待我們。跟Norman許多的傾談中,最深刻的是他說過「我不是營運租單車的生意,是希望協助人得到快樂。」在他眼裡看到他說到做到的真誠,謝謝你們! It is too differcult to write a comment. I didn't feel like paying for bike rental service, but meeting a new friend with a lot of support and hospitality. We rent 1 bike for 2 weeks round shikoku trip. The owner was so...More
