“ Excellent 1-Day tour of Kyoto with Hideyoshi-san ”

As a private group of 6 individuals on a tightly scheduled vacation, we had requested an 8-hour customized itinerary that would allow us to visit the top 4 attractions in Kyoto and allow us to travel from Tokyo via Shinkansen and return the same evening. We had also requested Hideyoshi-san to arrange a private taxi/van for us as we wanted to spend more time at the sites versus navigating public transport. Thanks to some meticulous itinerary planning and excellent arrangements by Hideyoshi-san, we had a wonderful trip visiting all 4 attractions in 8 hours - Kinkakuji Temple, Nijo Castle, Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari with plenty of time to explore each one while throwing in a sumptuous Japanese lunch in between. He was very knowledgable about each of the sites and the region, its history as well as cultural origins. As we would travel between sites, Hideyoshi-san would keep us engaged by providing a good narrative about ancient and modern Japan and its economy, trivia about its largest cities, pointing out notable Kyoto landmarks on the way and telling us what to expect at the next attraction. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We learned a lot about the Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines and the Tokugawa Shogunate and the life and times of people in that era. We would highly recommend Hideyoshi-san, especially if you only have a day in Kyoto and want to get the best value for your time. Arigato, Hideyoshi-san!
