Yumiko is very knowledgable regarding the places we visited and its history. She planned the tour really well, while always accommodating to our requests. Our 2 days tour in Kyoto and Nara was enjoyable and relaxing, just like travelling with a friend who knows the places really well. Excellent guide. Highly recommended view more
I engaged Yumiko months in advance with several requests. Restaurant and accommodation recommendations. She provided several options and her local knowledge of certain areas was on point! She also went out of her way to secure restaurant reservations and provided honest feedback as I was focused on seeing the deer and she advised me that it’s something where there is plentiful of and need not be covered within the tour itself. Also her recommendation on the sake tasting and historical knowledge ... view more
We’re very happy to have Ms. Miwako as our tour guide on November 11 2019. She is very knowledgeable about Nara and its attractions. Best, she knows how to accommodate our interests. She’s kind, patient; she answered our questions thouroughly. After a day with her, we feel like we had a new friend. We are sure will recommend her to my friends or family members if they have a chance to visit Nara .

We were very pleased with Koichi as our guide for a day in Nara and another in Kyoto. He was knowledgeable, energetic, flexible, attentive - and kind! - and escorted us to many fascinating and beautiful sights over the two days that we hired him. He is well-educated, speaks English well, and has diverse life experiences which broaden his guiding capabilities. Highly recommended! view more

I was fortunate to have visited Kyoto with my Mother (80yrs) and my Daughter (15yrs) in early October. I booked Tomoe to guide us to many wonderful areas in and around Kyoto including: Kinkakuji Temple, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Arashiyama monkey park and a lovely morning of shopping in the Sannenzaka area dressed in traditional Kimono. Tomoe also generously shared her favourite temple with us, a beautiful, tranquil temple set in peaceful gardens. Tomoe carefully curated tours for us each day whi... view more
Masahisa (“Mike”) has proven the absolute best guide we’ve had thus far in almost a month of touring Japan. He arrived promptly for hotel pickup, totally organized with a formally prepared tour proposal for the day, complete with a brief overview of Japanese history and culture he wrote himself, and tourist information guides of Nara sites and cultural events - all neatly tucked into a transparent file holder. He also proved to be an extremely knowledgeable guide not only regarding Japan’... view more
Takatoshi made our trip very memorable! He was kind, patient and knowledgeable. His itinerary was great and we ended the tour trying Japanese tapas style dishes pairing with Sake. I highly recommend him! Thank you very much Takatoshi! :-) view more
My sister, niece and I spent three amazing days with Seiko. We had so much fun, we wanted to have more days! She is so full of knowledge about Japanese culture, food, history, and art. She navigated us swiftly and effortless around Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka, and showed us many hidden jewels we would have missed if we had been on our own. She is also super sweet, a great conversationalist, and a lot of fun. After Day 1, she already felt like a old family friend. We hope to see her again!! view more
