The garden after the rain

by Tomoko

The garden washed by the rain

The rainy season is going to be over soon, However, the rain washed the dust away from the garden. And the garden showed us most beautiful face with vivid green moss.

If you have a little more time in Kyoto and want to see something different from the ordinary tourist spots, how about visiting here?

The garden covered with moss was made making the most of the scenery of the mountain foot.  In the center of moss-covered garden, Amida hall welcomes you. Close to the hall, plase look for tiny stone statues with their face showed up from the moss.The garden after the rain

The garden you should enjoy from inside of the room, like a framed picture

How about so-called framed-garden? At this temple, you are served Maccha tea and sweets. Please enjoy the garden having tea  Words are not necessary. The 700 year-old pine tree shows a gorgeous but quiet aspect to you.

Walking in the coutryside

How about walking in the countryside to visit another temple?  In this season, you will have an interesting time seeing rice field, tiny steam, and farmer's houses.

I am a government licensed guide and have been working as a professional guide for over 90groups after obtaining a license. in addition, I have 4years of experience as a volunteer guide before obtaining a professional license, and guided over 100groups. I am good at making tour plans based on your interests because I know my city ( I was born and brought up in Kyoto) in detail. If you are interested in historic places, I will offer a tour for historic places, If it's cultural experiences, then a tour with cultural classes such as a tea ceremony, wagashi ( Japanese confectionery) making, and so on. Why don't you ask me? I will make your time in Kyoto more enjoyable. Kyoto has a lot of sites to offer you and it is difficult for you to decide which to choose among them. I think I will be of great help.

Here are the reviews from the tours I worked as a guide on another occasion.

********************************
Tomoko was very thorough in her preparation for our tour, adapting to our programme needs, and extremely knowledgeable of Kyoto, its transport system ensuring speedy transfers between venues and the history and detail of each activity we undertook, which included Zen gardens, temples, tea ceremony, good lunch venue, advice on other sight seeing venues and the Geisha and Gion area. Would strongly recommend her to any1wanting a quality guided tour in Kyoto.

***************************************

We had a lovely tour today with Tomoko! She's really experienced and knows Kyoto as good as her palm! She explained us everything that we needed to know additionally for the next days and took us to the desired restaurant .. Really helpful and high level of knowledge.

************************************************************************
Your knowledge of all the places you took us to was unbelievable and your English was outstanding particularly your translation of the Monk's address at the Temple of the Ringing Crickets, without you we would have missed out on his enlightening message.You really took the time to consider the things that were of interest to us and provided a fantastic itinerary that left nothing out. Both of us felt at great ease in your company and we will remember our day at for many years as the highlight of our trip to Japan. Lunch was a great treat and the Bike tour enabled us to see so much of the area especially the great variety of amazing temples.

Tomoko, once again thank you so much for giving up your time to look after us for the day.

*******************************************************************************
Tomoko was very accommodating of our tour group which had a wheelchair-bound elderly. She was able to explain the history and significance of the temples we visited in good English. She also made it a point to ensure that our top interests were fulfilled during our tour with her, which was great! Last but not least, she was extremely helpful in helping 1of our members retrieve a lost ph1during the trip.

********************************************************************************
I needed to organize a 4-hour tour in Kyoto within 2days - and Tomoko Yamasho responded immediately, gave helpful tips over the internet and put together a tour tailored to my interests. When we met, she turned out to be a very knowledgeable guide, flexible to my new ideas (I had got10some more advice from friends in the meantime) with excellent English and with a good sense of humour. Thank you, Tomoko Yoshihara.
