“ A very well planned day of touring ”

Masaki-san put together a brilliant plan for the day based on advanced communication with me. We were able to see a great deal more than I could have ever hoped to on my own. Having his own car for transportation meant much less hassle in getting from place to place. His knowledge level and enjoyable personality also made the day a great one. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and I hope to tour with him again soon

Masaki:
David-san I really appreciate a review like you gave! We had a great conversation and I learned a lot from you, especially the deer story! I do hope to meet you again so I can show you more here in Kyoto! Best Regards, Makoon

“ Great guide - knowledgeable and friendly ”

We booked a whole day tour with Masaki Makoon to see Kyoto. We only had one day to spend there, so it was important to have someone with a car. Makoon met us right outside of the gate at Kyoto Station with a sign with the name of my entire family of four (2 kids ages 7 and 11). Upon meeting us, he provided everyone with their own itinerary and schedule of the tour. We were pretty aggressive in trying to see four major sites during an official holiday for Japan, but Makoon was able to navigate us safely through. In addition to the tour, he also reserved a great local restaurant based on the request we provided before the tour. The lunch was the best food we had during our 7 day trip in Japan. The one added bonus is that Makoon also brings his own camera during the tour and is constantly taking pictures of my family. Within 1 hour of the tour ending, he had already uploaded all the pictures and video to his dropbox to share with me. This service was free as part is his tour. In conclusion, you will not find a better guide to explore Kyoto with. He is very responsive (sent his initial introductory email within 30 mins of booking), extremely safe driver, knowledgeable and will work around your schedule and dietary needs. Thank you Makoon for such a great and memorable day in Kyoto.

Masaki:
Thank you very much for the warm comment!! Your family was so beautiful and so much fun! I hope I can have a trip like you do when my kid grows up. It was a hectic day especially but it is my honor that you say the day is a memorable one. and of course, I loved everybody was eager to try different food!!! It is a great memory for me, too. Once again, thank you very much. I really hope I'll see everybody again in the near future. Please take care. Makoon

“ Far Exceeded my Expectations!! ”

This was my first trip to Japan. I was visiting alone and wanted the most out of the experience. It was also my first time to use a tour guide. The experience was incredible! Masaki was so easy to work with. The strong communication prior to my arrival allowed me to relax and enjoy the plans. Since he has his own vehicle we were able to visit many sites and not worry about how to get around. I was so pleasantly surprised upon meeting Masaki that he has a personalized brochure created to share information about the day and historical information on each site we were visiting. This experience was so incredible and Masaki was an exceptional host and guide. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting. Thank you again, Masaki. Heidi Albee

Masaki:
Hi Heidi Again I really appreciate your comment. It is truely my honor. I'm really glad you liked the trip, especially the steak lunch!! You were one amazing guest, adventurous, enjoy everything, and have so much energy!! I really hope I'll see you again in the near future! Please take care. Regards, Makoon

“ " Kyoto Day Tour " ”

Masaki " Makoon" did an amazing job as our tour guide in Kyoto. Driving his car was pretty convenient since we were able to see many different places in 1 day. He has an in depth Knowledge of the sights we visited. He's nice and funny and we really enjoyed the sushi experienced. Bringing his camera was also an added plus since he took pictures of us and send it back digitally. He's also very flexible with his time. You cannot go wrong if you utilize his services.

Masaki:
Hi John I really appreciate your amazing review. I learned a lot from the conversation we had with the sushi chef, thank you for providing the great chance for learning. Hope you got a sharp knife like the one that chef had. Please take care and looking forward to the next time!! Regards, Makoon
