I had 9 hours in Kyoto and wanted to make the most of my time in the area. Kazuhiko layed out a custom itinerary that covered the major sites I wanted to see. During our email exchanges, Kazuhiko was always responsive and when I arrived, he had a great and efficient itinerary mapped out for the day. He started off by meeting me at the train car when I arrived inKyoto, coordinated all of our public transportation from site to site, shared his knowledge of the culture and local sites, and planned a nice lunch stop. We moved efficiently from site to site, but I did not feel rushed. We finished off the day with a refreshing desert and then he escorted me back to Kyoto Station. He also assisted with updating my seat reservation for the bullet train and saw me off at the train platform. Thank you Kazuhiko for sharing your knowledge of the local sites and the Japanese culture. It was a great experience.

Kazuhiko:

“ a day in Kyoto with Kazuhiro-san ”

I wanted to thank Kazuhiro-san again for a wonderful full day of guiding in Kyoto. We were four friends, arriving with Celebrity cruises in Kobe, and Kazu-san picked us up at the ship to bring us via train to Kyoto, where he had a taxi waiting for us. His guiding was excellent and we saw all the major attractions in Kyoto and even more than we expected. It was a long but rewarding day and we enjoyed Kazu-san's knowledge and his company. I highly recommend his service to other travelers. Thank you again for a wonderful day. Sigrid Harris

Kazuhiko:

“ A very fulfilling 1-day Kyoto Trip ”

Goto-san was very intellectual and had a lot of things to share about Kyoto and the history of Japan, which my father enjoyed very much. Our objective of the trip was to take nice pictures of the cherryblossoms and Goto-san was very knowledgeable about which spots would be good for sakura viewing & for taking pictures . Though we ran a tight schedule, with about 5 places to visit (including kimono wearing which takes about an hour!), Goto-san was very patient and did not rush us for anything. He was also very flexible when we suddenly had a change of plans; offering us different alternatives so that we could meet deadlines (of returning the kimono) and at the same time visit all the places in our check list. Though he may take a while to understand you, his english is rather decent. Overall, we had an enjoyable one-day trip to Kyoto, which didn't feel rushed or jam-packed at all. Thank you Goto-san for your good service and showing us around Kyoto!

Kazuhiko:
Dear Ms. Farahin Thank you for your message. I also enjoyed the tour with you. Moreover, thank you for nice photo. The photo reminds me of the pleasant tour. I hope that the tour in Japan will become your memorable tour and I hope that you will visit Japan again. I would like to guide you again. Thank you!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto

“ Kyoto tour ”

We had a wonderful time with Goto-san in Kyoto. His English is very good. He was very helpful in getting our reservations to the kaiseki dinner/maiko show after our tour and he made sure we got to the restaurant on time. He also gave instructions to the restaurant on getting a taxi back to our ryokan afterwards. We had a very busy day and we were able to see so many sights. Goto-san had us going at a quick pace-good thing we are in good shape :) My husband was happy since we didn't spend too much time shopping at all the siuvenir/gift shops that lined the walk ways to the temples/shrines. My only recommendation is to get a prepaid card for mass transit (ioca, suica, pasmo). It would have been easier to pay for our rides that way instead of having to fish out coins to pay. Overall we had a great time with Goto-san and highly recommend his tour of Kyoto. If we visit Kyoto again, I would definitely book a tour with him.

Kazuhiko:
Hello!! Thank you for your message. I also had a nice time with your nice family. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour, dinner with maiko show. I hope that this tour will become your memorable tour in Japan. Moreover, I hope that I would like to guide you in near future again. Please visit Japan again!! Thank you!!

“ Best tour guide we've ever had! ”

Kazuhiko was our tour guide for one day in Kyoto. He did a fantastic job telling us about the Japanese history and traditions while we were visiting several sights in Kyoto. For lunch, he took us to an amazing and really affordable Sushi place. After the extended tour, he even helped us with buying train tickets to our next destination and he gave us origami swans handmade by his lovely wife! (Thank you so much!) Kazuhiko went an extra mile to introduce us to his fascinating country! We would recommend him to anyone visiting Japan! Thanks again for an unforgettable day! :-) Anja & Halim

Kazuhiko:
Dear Ms.Anja & Mr.Halim Thank you for your nice message. I'm glad to receive it. I also enjoyed the tour with you. Thank you!! I hope that the tour will become your memorable tour. Moreover, I hope that I would like to guide you in Japan again in near future. Please visit japan again!! Thank you so much!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto
