“ Sight seeing Kyoto in the rain with Yoshi - a wonderful experience. ”

Yoshi, took our family out for a day of sightseeing. It was raining but it did not take anything away for the day we had. Yoshi was well organized and considerate of all our needs. Each ancient site he took us to was unique - some very popular and others off the beaten track. If we had been on our own we would not have found many of these places and would never have been able to see as much in a day. Apart from being an excellent guide with an abundance of historical and local knowledge, he took us to some great restaurants including a great dinner at his favorite restaurant which he has frequented for 35 years. The owner made us a special dish without us asking and served us ice cream at the end even though we did not ask. We were all pleasantly tired at the end of the day. My highest recommendation to Yoshi. (cautionary note..be prepared to walk fast and long, but I am sure if you are not a hardened hiker he would take it easy on you ! Thanks Yoshi!

Yoshihisa:

Hi Martin, Thank you very much for your quick and wonderful review on my tour yesterday. I am very pleased to learn that you and your family enjoyed the Golden Route tour in spite of the rain all day long. I will surely tell Hiro-san, the owner of the restaurant, that your family appreciated his dishes and warm hospitality. I hope you will return home safely with lots of nice memories and souvenirs. Next time you visit Kansai region, be sure to get in touch, please. With best wishes, Yoshie
