“ Knowledgeable and pleasant ”

We had a wonderful day with Rick: explored all that we had agreed to do and ended up with a Maiko dinner, as he had suggested, which gave us an otherwise unexplored view of Japanese lifestyles and traditions. Strongly recommend his services.


Dear Diego, Thank you very much for your nice review! I am so glad that you had enjoyed the tour and unexplored view of Japan. I had also enjoyed talking with you and your wife on various things with walking through beautiful Gion area just before the sunset. I hope you will come back to Kyoto in future. Best regards, Rick
