    We were a group of three and had less than a day in kyoto. We wanted to see so many things and he made it possible! He brought a little booklet and has printouts for teaching us about the different symbols at the temples and shrines we went to. He was so knowledgeable and easy to get along with. He showed us how to respectfully enter the temples and shrines. He even helped us get on the train to our next stop Osaka. We seriously would have been lost without him and he was very patient and extrem... view more

    Nobuko was friendly and provided useful information about shrines we visited, as well as about aspects of Kyoto city and Japanese culture that we would otherwise not known about. The sites she suggested we visit were all worthwhile, and by helping us navigate bus and subway out time was used efficiently. I would recommend her.. view more

    Hero is very knowledgeable, and more importantly a pleasure to spend time with while touring Kyoto and Osaka. He is quite the foodie and will highlight the better restaurants in the area by comparing 3 different foodie sites to choose the right one for you! We ate and drank our way around, also touring the many beautiful sites of the area, and all the while Hero took fabulous photos for us. This way we could soak it all in without having to look through a lens. So appreciated 🥰. view more

    We spend a marvellous day with Atsuko in Kyoto. Atsuko brought us closer to Japanese culture explaining to us many aspects of modern and ancient live in Japan. She made an excellent choice of places to visit by choosing three different styles of Japanese gardens. It was a great pleasure to spend the day with Atsuko. She is a charming person and very cultivated. We can highly recommend her . view more

    Yuriko is a delightful lady and gave us a wonderful tour of Kyoto. She met us at our ship terminal in traditional kimono and guided us through the train and metro systems to reach the sights we wanted to see. We toured Nijo Castle and it's grounds, had a Japanese lunch at a cafe, and did the tea ceremony and dancing with maiko. Yuriko told us many things about life in Japan and was knowledgeable about all the sights. We highly recommend Yuriko as a guide. view more

    My mother and I had a wonderful tour of Kyoto with Toshiyo this month. Toshiyo was very personable, organized and accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. In particular, we really enjoyed touring Nijo Castle and Toshiyo was able to bring the castle to life with her stories and unique background information. Another highlight from our tour included a visit to Kiyomizu Temple which had incredible views and was a very enjoyable walk. She went out of her way to answer any of our questions ... view more

    Hiro-san was very friendly and was happy and eager to answer our questions relating to the tour and Japan in general. His tours have been an absolute highlight of our stay in Japan and we will be sure to book another if we are ever in the area again. We got to see many of the best attractions the city had to offer and eat some great food too! view more

    Risa was fantastic for our family of 4. She showed a lot of Kyoto’s must sees in the one day. We walked many km’s that day and Risa was happy to show us the way. She also took us to a traditional Japanese lunch and tried to school us in many Japanese cultures and philosophies. I would certainly recommend Risa to anyone wanting to The sights of Kyoto. Thanks so much Risa for being so patient with us and showing us your beautiful city. view more
