With just a few days before our trip to Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Kobe, I was exasperated over finalizing an itinerary considering the variety and number of must-see sites in the Kansai region. I knew I couldn’t cover them all with my family and needed help pritoritizing and planning the visits and the train and subway trips and, of course, the walking routes. A friend recommended that I search for and book a guide on-line and my search led me to Triple Lights and eventually to Lisa Watanabe. I booked her for our swing to Kyoto and Nara; one day per city. Lisa is an angel sent from heaven! Before the trip, she painstakingly and patiently coordinated with me in planning the itinerary. Because of the many options, I had to keep changing the itinerary and Lisa graciously accommodated all my requests until we came up with a final schedule. Let me just say that our trips to Kyoto and Nara were just spectacular and so memorable; and we couldn’t have made it without Lisa. Apart from her perfect itineraries for both cities, she gamely narrated the history and significance of each place we visited and that made each visit all the more relevant and memorable. She was simply the perfect guide and I’m glad I booked her. Oh, one important point of our Nara trip is that we set it on a Sunday and I specifically requested Lisa to find me a Catholic Church where we could hear Sunday mass. Well, she found one and we were able to hear the 3pm mass which was attended by the Filipinos living in the area. And Lisa even heard mass with us, even if she isn’t Catholic. I admire her for that. Lisa is the perfect guide. My wife and daughters miss her already and that’s an indication of how excellent she is. I absolutely recommend her 100%!!! Thank you so much Lisa for making our Kansai tour such a fantastic experience that we will never forget. Arigato Gozaimasu!!! Hope to see you again. God bless.
