“ Beautiful Kyoto ”

We spent 2 days with Yoshie in Kyoto while on a cruise docked in Kobe. Yoshie met us at Kyoto Station and dropped ended the first day at our hotel. Then we met him the following morning and ended the tour at Kyoto Station for our train back to Kobe. Yoshie was great in putting together an itinerary that allowed us to see just about all the amazing sites in Kyoto. Because sunset is fairly early in November, we were able to end our first day with a night tour of an amazing temple with beautifully lit gardens. We experienced some delicious Japanese food that suited us just fine given that we are quite fussy eaters. Yoshie understood that and chose excellent places for lunch. He also reserved us a place for dinner on the first night which I had found on TripAdvisor that was excellent and near our hotel in the Gion district of Kyoto. We crisscrossed the city by subway, taxi and foot and had a marvelous two days with Yoshie. His English was very good and understandable and he took a lot of pride in ensuring that we had the best Japanese experience possible. I definitely recommend Yoshihisa (Yoshie) to any visitor to Kyoto. We finished our visit with a tour of Kyoto Station, an amazing train station that most tourists don't know to include on their itinerary.


Hi James. I really appreciate your kind review for my two-day tour in Kyoto. I am pleased that you enjoyed every site you visited and the food for lunch. It was also a good experience to me too to have been able to see Eikando Temple beautifully illuminated at night. I hope you will visit Kansai region again someday in the near future. I wish you the very best of luck. Yoshie
