On particular night in September we have tradition of the moon viewing. (September 27 this year)  We decorate our table with Japanese pampas grass, a stack of small rice powder balls and autumn harvest such as sweet potatoes and taros.  Family get together and appreciate a beautiful full moon.

“ One day tour of Kyoto ”

Very Good
4 hours ago Traveler: Reenu -   Tour Guide: Mari

Mari was excellent! She was timely and organized and did her best to show us all the sites in Kyoto in one day (9 hours). She was excellent with her communication and provided insight into the sites we were visiting. I really liked the fact that she wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time. The only thing I would recommend for anyone traveling is perhaps limit the number of sites you ar...

We spent a great day in Osaka with Mari who was very punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. Mari gave us a good introduction to the city and as we are here for a few days, have gone back and spent more time in some of the places, such as Namba. We thoroughly enjoyed our Kushikatsu lunch as suggested by Mari. Would definitely recommend Mari.

“ Fantastic three days! ”

Excellent
2 months ago Traveler: Zachary -   Tour Guide: Mari

My friend and I spent three days with Mari and it was a great experience all around. Without Mari I don't think we would have been able to get to as many places as we did. My friend and I travel a lot and often have troubles with guides slowing us down but that was never the case with Mari, who always kept up with us. She also was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot from her over the time...
