we enjoyed our day with Masaki. He was willing to fit in all the sites we wanted to see in both Nara and Kyoto in one day. Our arrival time changed and he adjusted and helped us work out train schedules to meet him in Nara. He gave us details of each site and shared a lot of history and information of Buddhism. He is a happy and very pleasant guide to spend a day with. He knew all the transportation details to traveling quickly. We highly recommend him.
