“ Best tour guide of our entire trip! ”

We hired Masaki (Makoon) for 2 days while we were in Kyoto. He was exactly what we weee looking for. My kids absolutely loved him and his tour. He was so knowledgeable about Japanese history (including the Relstiknships between the Shogun and the Emperor) and was able to explain it to our children in such a fun and easy way. He has his own car so we were able to avoid the hot days when we traveled from different sites. He took us to the popular sites and even some less frequented sites that were amazing. (We even had one site to ourselves for awhile with views of the entire city of Kyoto.). One of highlights for the tour for my kids was having lunch at a sushi conveyor belt restaurant where we ordered food on an IPad like device. The food was delivered on a belt. We deposited our empty plates in a dispenser and for every 5 plates we would get a chance to win a prize. Definitely something to check out if you are traveling with your family. He also gave us some great recommendations for dinners while we were in Kyoto. Honestly, the 2 days with Makoon were the highlight of our trip in Japan. I highly recommend hiring Makoon for your trip in Kyoto.

Masaki:
Dear Justin, Lani, Evan, and Bella Thank you very much for your kind review. It's truely my honor to receive such words. I, too, really enjoyed showing your family around. I was especially surprised how your children were interested in Japanese history and culture at such young age! I'm also glad the belt sushi was an experience for you, again it's great to have lunch that locals would have on a daily basis! I really hope to see you and your family in the future. Till the next time! Warm Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Absolutely awesome guide! ”

We engaged Masaki for three full days in Kyoto. He was wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable, totally fluent in English and has a wonderful personality. He also has his own car which made it easy to get around. He was flexible for changes we made. He takes great photos as well!! 5 stars and highly recommended. He loves his city and his work and he made out tour delightful

Masaki:
Dear Tony Thank you very much for your kind words. It is a huge compliment for me and motivatio n for me to improve as a guide. I was really happy as everybody in your family was eager to learn about the history and culture, and share your thought about it. I'd love to see you all again in the near future. Thank you for valuable lessons "I am everything." "nothing nothing nothing"! Warm Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ Best Day of our 10 Day Japan Trip! ”

I normally don't write reviews but I felt compelled after how incredible our day was! Masaki was very informative but in a totally relatable manner. Knowledge was passed on through conversation rather than a history lesson. He catered the trip entirely to us and was very flexible. Truly can't speak highly enough about how great this tour was! We have countless photos and memories of our fantastic Kyoto journey!

Masaki:
Dear Joseph Thank you very much for your kind review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the history and culture! We covered a lot of different sites in one day, but you guys were fit and enjoyed even an extra site! Please enjoy the photos and remember the great day we shared! Kind Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ ABOSLUTELY INCREDIBLE ”

Makoon was one of the nicest tour guides I have ever had in my travels to over 29 countries. He was superiorly knowledgeable, knew the best places and times of days to attend them and responded to my questions before booking within hours. His english was superb and I feel lucky that we had him for the entire day in Kyoto!

Masaki:
Dear Joshua I really appreciate the kind reveiw like yours. It is my honor as a guide to recieve such a message! Once again, I really enjoyed a day with such a friendly and energetic group! we had great conversation, and you made me laugh so hard!! At the same time, I was really happy that you showed respect to the history and culture, and was eager to learn about shinto, buddhism etc... I feel luck that I had great guests like you guys! Looking forward to meeting you again! Masaki Makoon Mori

“ The best of the best!!! ”

Absolutely excellent guide. Many e-mail communications before our trip to hone and finalize our itinerary. Has a car which made it possible to get to several distant sites of interest. Brought his own camera to take our photos, and e-mailed them to us. He is very informative and knows the area well. Very accommodating. I recommend him highly without hesitation. You'll be fortunate if you are able to book him.

Masaki:
Dear Robert Thank you very much for your kind review. Your words really motivate and inspire me to improve as a guide. I spent a great time with you and Avi, and you guys are exactly the family that I and my son would like to be in 20 years! As we promised in Gion, let's meet again 20 years later!! Kind Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori
