“ 1 Day Custom ”

We began by emailing Makoto to see if we could customize our tour. He was very prompt and accommodating. Our trip (with two teenagers) started off leaving Tokyo Station and arrive around 9:30 in Kyoto. Makoto suggested the train and time and was waiting for us outside the car when we arrived on the Nozomi train. We visited the Fushimi Shrine, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, Tenryuji Temple, the Kinkajui Temple and back to the Kyoto Station. He gave us a lot of historical information and fun facts at each site and along the way. He helped us find souvenirs and snacks and had wonderful cooling wipes for us. He went out of his way to help us find some medicine at the pharmacy. Our trip ended with some parting chocolates as he walked us to our final gate. I would definitely recommend him for his knowledge, kindness, flexibility, and easy going personality. He made our day trip fun and easy.

MAKOTO:

Dear Miya, Thanks for your prompt and nice review comments. I am pleased that you have enjoyed the tour. I hope that your daughter get well. Thank you very much for your choosing me of your guide. Best regards. MAKOTO
