My wife and I were visiting Kyoto for the first time and engaged Masaki’s services as a guide for three days. He was very helpful during the planning phase. Letting us know certain sites we should see and helping to organize our days to minimize travel and maximize our site seeing. He kept us up to date on events prior to our arrival, especially important since we were we going to Kyoto close to Typhoon season. During our tours he was very knowledgeable and provide us with the right combination of historical facts and local trivia. Most of all he was flexible. My hobby is photography and he was able to identify key places where I could get good pictures. In addition, he tailored the days factoring in our preference for walking and time of day and weather. All and all our experience with Masaki was very successful and I would recommend him to others.
Dear Nils, It's truely an honor to recieve words like these. I'm really happy that you could capture quite a lot of beautiful shots. They will always remind you of good flavor of Kyoto! I also have to appreciate a lot of conversations about various topics we shared. I too learned a lot of new things, golden time for photography, invasion to Japan with "smell of death".. interesting stuffs! I sincerely hope you are going to make a great "book" from this trip! Looking forward to seeing you again. Warm Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori
