“ We had the best time with Yoshie! ”

Yoshie was a wonderful tour guide. He helped me to preplan and flex our 3 day tour through email to meet the needs of my 23 year old daughter who wanted to see and learn about everything as well as my 83 year old mother. We saw so many temples and took beautiful pictures for great memories. We had a great time with many many laughs in the deer park feeding the deer! He also took us to great places to eat and a sake tasting. We went to bed every night talking about how much fun we had each day! At the end of our stay he even helped us get to the correct train track to continue our journey to Hakone! We have made a new friend in Yoshie. My family is very grateful for his hospitality. Arigato gozaimasu Yoshie San! Cathy, Casey, Yasuko and Jack

Yoshihisa:
Thank you very much for your kind message. I am so glad to hear you all have enjoyed the tour with me in Kyoto and Nara for the past three days. My good memory with you will long linger on like a temple bell. I was really impressed at your careful consideration to your family. I hope you will have a nice trip in Hakone and have a good opportunity to see Mt. Fuji. Thank you for everything again. Yoshie

“ A day of deer, temples and owls.. ”

Yoshie is a fantastic ambassador for Nara. He planned an itinerary that took into consideration the activities that my family of five wished to do but also covered visits to Kofuku-ji Temple, Todai-ji Temple and Kasuga Grand Shrine. He has a wealth of knowledge of the history of Nara and made sure we understood what we were looking at. We had a wonderful day visiting these places of interest as well as feeding the deer in Nara Park. Yoshie is very patient as my adult children were fascinated by the deer and stopped regularly to feed or photograph them. So much so that after our delicious lunch I suggested that they stay with the deer and my husband and I continue the tour to the Grand Shrine. When I booked the tour initially I requested that we include a visit to the Wata-wata owl cafe. Yoshie contacted the cafe on our behalf regarding reservations and cost. He also provided us with detailed and invaluable transport instructions from our hotel in Kyoto to Nara station. During lunch I admired the bottle our sake was served in. Yoshie spoke to the owner and arranged for us to take it with us. Yoshie is also very flexible. He realised on the day that my husband was interested in sake and suggested a visit to a sake brewery. This worked out perfectly as my husband much preferred this to the owl cafe so he went with Yoshie and we visited the owls which we loved. I have no hesitation in recommending Yoshie as a guide. He is a gentleman, has a great sense of humour and imparts his knowledge freely. He made our day in Nara enjoyable and one which we will remember.

Yoshihisa:
Hi, Lynn. I really appreciate your kind message. I also had a wonderful time with you and your family in Nara. I'm pleased that each of you had his or her own purpose for a visit to Nara and enjoyed themselves. Greg became a good friend of mine as i saw him drinking cold sake at the restaurant for lunch. We had a splented time at the sake brewery, tasting different types of sake fresh from barrels. I hope you will safely continue the rest of your trip in Japan and bring home lots of nice memories and souvenirs. Next time you come to Japan, be sure to get in touch with me, please. Yoshie

"Yoshie" was an excellent tour guide. He is very engaging and very personal. He added so much to our trip !!! His english is very good. He was very patient and understanding and connected with all the ages (16-56 yrs old) in our group. He went above and beyond to make our day very special and fit everything in we wanted to see. It was a very hot day and he was AMAZING helping us deal with the heat. We will look him up next time we are in Japan.

Yoshihisa:
Hi, Kasey. I really appreciate your kind words of gratitude, I am very pleased to learn that you enjoyed every minute of your tour in Kyoto with me. I also had an excellent time with Pat, MP and you. I hope the good encounter with you all will linger on like the sound of a temple bell. Looking forward to seeing you at my house someday soon.
