Mr. Noboru Nagata was very attentive in his email correspondence. He replied to emails promptly and was very thorough. Before starting the tour, he showed us the different locations for where would go throughout the day which was very helpful to get a prospective of our first day in Kyoto. His English was good but there were several occasions when we had to ask him to repeat what he said due to his pronunciation and his volume. He is very knowledgeable about the sights. There were some information he was unclear about but he was up front about not knowing which made us trust him even more. He went above and beyond his tour time. We were expecting the tour to end around 5 pm. However, he wanted to make sure we squeezed in a couple more sights. It was a good thing he extended his time. He took us to the Gion District known for the quaint restaurants and rare Geisha sightings. He pointed out a Geisha house and was explaining to us the process of becoming a Geisha. In the mean time, a taxi pulls up to the house giving indication that a Geisha was exiting the house. We waited about 6-10 minutes and the crowd grew around the house and then the Geisha quickly walked out of the gate and into the taxi. A rare sighting, indeed! If Mr. Noboru hadn't stopped to explain the sight, we would not have experienced seeing a Geisha. We parted abound 7 pm which was way beyond the tour hour. He probably would have kept on going to make sure we saw as much as much as possible! By that time, our family of 4 were ready to head back to our hotel. All in all, it was a very memorable and informative experience. We highly recommend Mr. Noboru.

Noboru:
Kuay-san Thank you very much for your precious comments. I can understand how you felt during our trip. I am going to study further to be a better guide. Gion is one of the best places I wish to invite and describe for my clients. You and your members of family have given me a good memory. I wish you and your family a prosperous and happy life. Thanks so much. With best regards Noboru Nagata

“ Nara tour! ”

Our tour of Nara was cut very short because we were so exhausted at that point in our trip we just didn't have any shrining or templing left in us! BUT Noburu was a great guide, kept our needs in mind and was very flexible with our constantly changing plans!We wish we had been able to do everything on our list, but we pooped out way before he did! Noboru really knows his stuff, all the way down to the height and width of almost every structure we saw! Nara is amazing and not to missed on a trip outside of Kyoto!

Noboru was an excellent tour guide. He communicated via email beforehand and tried to find an irezumi tattoo shop for my son. He was very knowledgeable about the Toshodai-ji Temple in Nara, the Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavillion) and Kiyomizu-derabout temple. My son is handicap and he modified the tour route to accommodate him where he could. He was very flexible with our itinerary and helped us find a local restaurant my daughter wanted to try in Nara. He even helped my husband buy tickets for the shinkansen and explained the different trains and routes. I would highly recommend Noboru.

Noboru:
Kelly-san I appreciate your comments about our tour. I could have en enjoyable tour with you and had a very nice time. Every member of your family was very kind to me and I wish all of you good luck. Please give my best regards to other members of your family. Thank you very much. Noboru Nagata
