We, a group of 4 people from Germany hired Masaki (Makoon) for a 3-days-stay in Kyoto. It was a outstanding experience to spend and share the time with him. A top-notch-guide! He has a wonderful personality, is open, flexible and understands the wishes of the group, even they deviate from the original and agreed tour plan. Makoon has a deep knowledge about the history, the temples and shrines as well as the Gijon quarter. He knows little bits and pieces that made his explanations so lively and interesting. He did care about everything we needed. We couldn't find anybody better and have not one subject to criticise other than we have been so sad when we said Good-bye end of day 3. One member of the group at home said: "It was my best vacation ever"! We do strongly recommend him and when we come back once, we will hire him again since he became our friend!
Dear Chrisoph san, It's truly an honor for me to receive a review like yours. Those 3 days were quite special for me, too. I particularly enjoyed exchanging historical and cultural information between Japan and Germany. Thank you for sharing a lot of information, Germany monastery and beer, war history, and many more... I learned a lot and it was nice to see a lot of similarities. Please do tell me when you come back, even though we did a lot, there's always more in Kyoto! Sincerely looking forward to meeting you again. Warm Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori
