We were looking for an in-depth understanding of Zojo-ji, and it is not one of the popular spots in Tokyo. Kazuharu prepared and came with lots of notes and tried his best to answer all our questions. He was patient and enthusiastic.
Thank you for your kind comments. We do appreciate your support and interest to the more depth cultural & historical heritage sights in Tokyo . Looking forwards next opportunity. Best regards, Kazuharu Kaneda
Richard took us on a 3 hour virtual tour as we “walked with him” through places or worship, spiritual sites, the historical district and more. He was engaging, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and fun. His ability to enable us to experience Kyoto like we were there was wonderful. The cultural insights fabulous. He surpassed our expectations of a virtual tour by a huge margin.
Ambika You're very kind and it was enjoyable for me too, to be able to show you parts of the beautiful city of Kyoto. It was kind of weird for me because usually the places that we went are packed with visitors. It was very nice to see open streets but not to see the closed businesses. Please shoot me any questions you may have and if there's ever anything else I can do for you, please let me know. Kind regards Richard
I had an amazing time in Kyoto with Kiriko! It was a difficult time to plan a tour because a lot of places were closed due to the coronavirus, but she put together a great itinerary of cool places that I hadn't seen yet during my time in Kyoto. She even found the one nighttime temple illumination that was still open! After the sightseeing was finished she took me to a great restaurant to try Kyoto horse meat, a local delicacy! :D Kiriko speaks perfect English and is very friendly and easy to talk to, so it felt just like hanging out with a friend for a day, which is the best kind of tour. :) I'm looking forward to doing another tour with her in the future (and trying the horsemeat sashimi) and I would highly recommend her for any tours in Kyoto, Osaka, or Hyogo. Thanks Kiriko!!
Thank you so much for such a great review, Bryce! I also had a lot of fun hanging out with you!! I was a bit worried that maybe I couldn’t have provided you the best tour because a lot of places were unfortunately closed, but I’m happy to hear that you still enjoyed my tour. Looking forward to seeing you again and showing you more places soon, and of course trying Basashi(horsemeat sashimi) together! :D
Our day with Richard was so outstanding that we are already planning a return trip to Japan, but only if he tags along for the whole trip. His knowledge of history is very impressive, his musings about Budhism are enlightening and his easy conversation with the locals makes anyone feel welcome in the hidden spots that no ordinary tourist would be able to reach; his disposition for a full day of local cuisine and sakê makes your time with him worth every minute. We cannot emphasize how fun and friendly he is, and hope everyone has as good a time with his as we did. Thank you Richard, we hope to see you again soon!
Catarina Thank you very much for your kind words. As I have not had a tour in weeks it is nice to remember that I actually do a good job when I am out there. I hope you guys are safe in this time of craziness and I really hope that you guys get the chance to come back to Japan and allow me to take you deeper into the local realm!! LOL Kind regards Richard
Excellent all around. The booking, customer service and communication with teh driver was first class. The pick up was slightly delayed our end but the diver was most patient and drove very well...thumbs up! Nick, Hiroshima
