Masaki-san is a wonderful guide. He is gentle and friendly. I booked Masaki-san as my guide for a two day walking tour. I had only vague ideas about Nara. He is knowledgeable. I learned so much about Buddhism, Shintoism, and Japan's ancient history. He also told me about the difference between Kyoto and Nara. His explanation is well organized and convincing. I could understand the significance of building Horyuji temple and the introduction of Buddhism. I could see temples and shrines in ... view more
I chose Mr. Masaki because his profile indicated he had taught history for 30 years and being a history buff I figured he was the right choice for me. I was not disappointed! He was a wealth of knowledge about the history of Nara and its surroundings. One of my interests recently has been the history of Buddhism in Japan and Mr. Masaki was able to provide me details which would be difficult to access otherwise. I also found him to be very polite and courteous. Overall, it was a great experience. view more
Mitsuyuki-San was really amazing. Very friendly, patient and a good human. We booked two days with him - one day for Kyoto and the other for Nara. We're travelling with a 3yr old and an infant. He made sure that we are comfortable at every stage of the trip. Always on time, never rushing and was very flexible with our change of plans (due to time constraints). Learned a lot from him about the culture and history of Japan. His English is good. He helped us to take a lot of photos which wa... view more
Masaki was fantastic! He was professional and knoledgable, I was pleased with him. The transportation was smooth and all the spots he took me were wonderful. I would like to visit Japan again. I would hire him next time in Kyoto. view more
Would recommend the Nara tour. No worries about what's worth seeing or how to get from point A to point B. Itinerary was all planned out and pretty much spot on for what I wanted to see. Hearing the history and stories behind the places you visit definitely gives a deeper appreciation/understanding. Masaki knows his stuff and was really enthusiastic about sharing what he knew. A pleasure to spend the afternoon with him. Thanks Masaki! view more
Keiko is helpful and knowledgeable with good English skills. We had a super visit with her to Nara. She also provided some great recommendations for cycling routes which we very much appreciated. Thank you Keiko view more
We had Hideo as our guide on 11 April 2017 for our trip to Yoshino. He was punctual to pick us up from our hotel, organized - presented us with the itinerary and informative. Yoshino - nice place for cherry blossom viewing and walking. You get to see nice views as well as street food and souvenirs. Hideo is very helpful, he brought us to buy our Shinkansen ticket from Kyoto to Tokyo. Without his help, we might take a long to time to figure out where to buy the tickets. He also brought us to ea... view more
Hiroshi made our tour fun! We were a big group. I can imagaine that it must be hard for any tour guide to keep his audience interested and focused. But Hiroahi was able to do that by adding question and answer games in the tour bus. It was very entertaining! He knew.much about Kyoto and we had a great experience touring Kyoto even with the rain. Thank you Hiroshi! More success to you! view more
