“ Excellent guide and interpreter. ”

I highly recommend Mac as a guide and translator. We spent two days with Mac who very efficiently handled transportation and time schedules for us. After describing what we wanted to see and do in Kyoto, Mac came back with detailed itineraries, explaining what was possible to accomplish within our time frame, and then was flexible with our unexpected schedule changes. Most wonderfully for us, he kindly contacted a second cousin whom I had never met and translated Japanese to English and back again during our meetings. This meant so much for us and was a highlight of our time in Japan. Thank you, Mac!

MAKOTO:

Dear Grace, Thanks so much for the nice review comments. I have not learned Buddhism seriously before but this time I have learned much especially about the human bond,and the importance. I hope that your relationship with your second cousin and her family to be continued in the future including your children. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide. I really enjoyed the conversation and visit of Arashiyama with you. Mac
