“ 2 amazing days in Kyoto ”

As we are making a roundtrip in Japan, having only a couple of days to spent in Kyoto, we preferred to hire a private guide for our family of 5 (three teenager kids). We booked two full-day tours with Toshi, a native Japanese guide who is fluently in English! Toshi has been a wonderful guide for us, taking care of everyone, taking time to explain his tour plan at the start of the tour and giving a lot of background information during both tours! Our favorite tour was the Arashiyama tour (bamboo groove, Togetsu-kyo bridge, Golden pavilion, Nishiki market), as the weather was absolutely wonderful that day! The Higashiyama tour was very impressive as well, with a lot of beautiful (and colourful) sightseeing places. As we are travelling in high season, the major sightseeing areas in Kyoto are extremely crowded with people. Toshi however managed to guide us in a way that it didn't bother us really! Also his choice of reasonably priced restaurants for lunch has been very good. We really enjoyed our days with Toshi and would highly recommend him as a guide for Kyoto!

Toshi:

Hi Claudia, We had a bit of rain on the first day in Higashiyama, but second day in Arashiyama turned out to be such a nice day. I'm really glad that you all had a wonderful day. Frank: Thank you for the photos you took by Hozu River. My wife liked them very much. Tom: Your Japanese is excellent, much advanced than my expectation. Please keep on learning, especially try to spend time on explaining things concerning what you have interests in. Helene: I was impressed with your piano-playing at the music store.You seemed to be enjoying very much. Laura: You expressed your interest in playing the drums straight forward. I like that sort of attitude towards what you want to do. You have wonderful three children. The way they are is because the way you and Frank are. Great family! Best, Toshi
