“ Pleasant guide, very knowledgeable ”

Kaoru is a sweet and gentle person with much knowledge to share about Japan, customs, and Kyoto in particular. She speaks good English and is very pleasant to be with. My family took a custom tour with Kaoru and she started our day by explaining where we would go. As the day progressed, and my family over-stayed our time on some portions of the tour, Kaoru graciously worked with us to adapt the time remaining to the highest priority scenic venues. Kaoru used her expert knowledge to tailor our tour to the subjects we were interested in: architecture, gardens, and customs. All together we very much enjoyed Kaoru’s guidance and sharing of knowledge of the history and culture of Japan. The Japanese garden at the imperial palace is perhaps the finest Japanese garden we’ve ever toured. One particularly unique aspect of Kaoru’s tour were all of the transportation accommodations we exploited to move around Kyoto, including trains, subways, buses, trams and even a taxi. This helped us travel efficiently between venues and was a worthy experience in and of its self.

Kaoru:

Dear Tom, Thank you very much very for your lovely coment. You were smiling all the time and very kind to people met like an ambassador. It made me relaxing and enjoyable all the time. Inspite of a lot of changes of the transportation, you and your family never complained, very patient, and walked very well. The atmosphere of imperial palace matched your family. Especially you and your wife were the most suited visiters there, I am sure. You will be welcomed at any places not only Japan but also all over the world. Best wishes, Kaoru
