“ Excellent introduction to Japan ”

We spent a very enjoyable day and a half with Yumiko touring the Kyoto area. Yumiko is an excellent guide and took the time to ascertain what we most wanted to do in our time together. With a rainy day forecast for the second day of our time together, Yumiko proactively suggested some revisions to our schedule to deal with the anticipated poor weather. Seeing the bamboo forests in the midst of a light rain was magical and we were able to see many of the important sites in the Kyoto area. To us it was more important to take our time to appreciate an area rather than rush to try to see everything and Yumiko responded accordingly. She also gave us some excellent suggestions for places to visit and things to do on our own in our remaining time in Kyoto. Yumiko speaks fluent English and it was very easy to establish a comfortable rapport with her. What a wonderful way to start our vacation in Japan. My wife and I highly recommend Yumiko!


Hello Barry, Thank you for the good review. I am so happy to spend time with you together. I wish you could taste of Kyoto though it was raining. Hope enjoy the rest of your trip! Yumiko
