“ Great guide in Kyoto - loved our conversations about real life ”

My wife, son (13) and I spent an evening with Ryoji in Kyoto in late October. My goal was to see the off the beaten track Kyoto and really get to know the city through a local. Ryoji met us for an evening tour, took all of our requests in and showed us some great things in Kyoto. What I/my family like the most was a dinner we had together at the end of the tour. We talked about real life in Kyoto/Tokyo/Japan and he gave us a real sense of what his life was like on a day to day level. Exactly what I wanted my 13 son to to understand. Great guy, took care of us, decent English speaker and willing to talk about real things.

“ Nice walk! ”

I ended up traveling solo so booked the evening Gion tour with Ryoji who was very knowledgeable and accommodating. It was especially nice to see the quieter areas away from all the crowds. The secret garden is just lovely.

Thanks a lot for your positive review. I enjoyed myself guiding you. Hope to see you again!

“ A Wonderful Day in Kyoto ”

Despite the fact that we had different age gaps in our group (from a 6yr old to 84yr old), Ryoji was very patient and extremely accommodating to all of us. He took us to the most amazing sites in Kyoto, all the while telling annecdotes and histories of each place and taught us some of the Japanese culture. He made sure each of us had an awesome experience to remember, took us to the best places to eat, helped us find all the little keepsakes we wanted and made sure we got on the right train back home! Best tour ever!

Thank you very much for your positive comment! I enjoyed myself guiding you and your family. I hope to see you again and guide you to other places. Thanks a lot again for choosing me as your guide.
