SHIN's old Kyoto Villa

by SHIN

My guests visited  my olden villa in Kyoto yesterday.  It is off the beaten path, Higashiyama area of Kyoto.  We enjoyed Tofu hot pot dish and fresh peach and watermelon.  Though a garden is tiny,  it is surrounded by lovely green ivy-moss, fern, magnolia and camellia.   After staying my villa, we dropped by rabbit shrine praying for a healthy baby delivery by my house.  We had a happy time!  Welcome to my Kyoto villa and take a relax with green tea.

“ Outstanding Personal Guide! ”

Our family of four was fortunate to have Shin as our personal guide. We were visiting from Hawaii and it was the first time we travelled alone to Japan. Shin offered his help immediately after we contacted him, always responding with “ask me anything (even questions outside the booking dates). He helped us reserve our seats on the Shinkansen, and even changed the time of his ticket so he could ...

I presented Shin with a challenge when organising my tour by wanting a more everyday cultural experience. My initial request was very vague and wishy washy. Shin was constantly patient in working with me to come up with an itinerary. In the end we settled on a mixture of high and low culture and we packed a lot of experiences into a very fun day. Shin is very generous in his nature and keen to...

SHIN without a doubt was the very best guide we have ever had, and we have traveled all over the world. He was knowledgeable, knew the best places to see, eat and shop. He went way over what he was supposed to do. Spent many extra hours with us without charge. Went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wanted, made reservations for us and guided us with a friendly, happy attitude. Could...

Mr. Shin was very accommodating and genuinely concerned. He went out of his way, over a month before our scheduled tours, to look for a special requirement of my daughter who has a medical condition. And, he gave me regular updates on it. Mr. Shin was also generous with his time and very knowledgeable not only of the tourist spots we visited but also of places we passed by. Having been previously...

Touring with Shin was amazing! In 5 hours, Shin helped us see the important places that were on our list. He met us on the platform of the Nizomi train and helped us quickly drop off our luggage and hit the road! We started with the Golden Temple (breathtaking), then on to the Kiyomizu Dera Temple (uphill beauty) and ended at the Fushimi inira Taisha Shrine (amazing torii’s gates). These sights we...
