My groups’ tour with Kashima was chalk-full of information about all the sites we went to and was sprinkled with some current cultural facts in between. Kashima himself was considerate of our lesser-abled group members and even helped fix mistakes we made in regards to transportation. Overall a great tour guide, would recommend. Thanks Kashima for your patience with us.
Theresa san, Thank you very much for your great and utmost review for me. We could have a very pleasant tour during 8 days with all 16 people of you and your friends including one transportation day from Tokyo to Kyoto. You kindly reserved the service by Van transportation for 6 days. We felt as if our tour is a small size special group tour sandwiched among very big tour agency buses in large parking of each visiting spots. We visited Tokyo, Hakone, Kamakura, Kyoto, Nara and Osaka which are completely linked with the transition of capital from ancient time-flame such as Asuka->Nara->Kyoto->Kamakura->Kyoto(again)->Osaka->Edo(Tokyo). Thanks to lots of questions about Japanese history and culture from all of your group members, I could explain well at the first time about the deep relationship about each site and historical background such as Yakushiji temple (Asuka & Nara), Great Buddha of both Nara & Kamakura, Tenryuji temple(Emperor Godaigo and Asikaga Takauji), Kinkakuji temple (Great Shogunate: Ashikaga Yoshimitsu), Osaka castle (Nobunaga, Hideyoshi and Ieyasu), Nijo castle(Tokugawa Shogunate) and so-on. I am pleased that all your friends enjoyed this tour and looking forward to receiving another tour guiding request from you in the future. Thanks, Kashima
