My husband and I spent our first day in Kyoto with Mari. She was awesome (and her English was excellent) and showed us so much in our one day together. She helped us navigate the subway system as well as understand the Japanese culture and way of living. The local yakitori restaurant she took us to was awesome and authentic too. She will customize your tour based on what you want to see and will recommend the top sights. We had a ton of fun. I highly recommend using Mari if you are in Japan.
Dear Mindy, Thank you for your wonderful tour review. I enjoyed visiting sites with you as you appreciate our culture. Although the day was rainy, you were enthusiastic, and we had a nice talk over lunch in a quiet Kyoto house. Mari
