“ Best Tour Guide in Kyoto ”

We had an excellent private tour with ‘Mike.’ A retired global businessman, Mike speaks English fluently. More importantly, he added historical, cultural and religious context for us as we toured Shrines, temples and various neighborhoods throughout Kyoto. He explained the significance of structures, gardens, guardian statues, the training of geishas along with an infinite number of other things needed to truly appreciate what we were seeing. He brought us to a quiet residential neighborhood so we could experience the city as it is for residents and walked us through several markets. At the end of our tour he even recommended a great shopping venue for artisan Japanese crafts. Hire this guide if you can!

Masahisa:

Mary Wish you continue pleasant journey in Kyoto and thank you again for your visit to Japan all the way, also safe return home with happy memories here. Thanks Masahisa
