“ Fushimi Inari Shrine, Bamboo Forest and the Shosei-En Garden ”

We had a wonderful day with Ai as we toured beautiful Kyoto. Climbing the steps of the impressive Inari Shrine, walking through the quiet of the Bamboo Forest and basking in the beauty of the Shosei-En Garden in the rain, Ai was a fun and interesting guide. Ai negotiated prices, got us into the Shosei-en Garden just before closing, and interpreted for our party. Thank you Ai for a wonderful day!

Ai:

Thanks for having me. It was my pleasure to guide such a wonderful parents with a nice daughter around my age. Although it was raining, you kindly allowed me to use a taxi, which was a prime reason for arriving Shoseien Garden on time. I appreciate your cooperation. (Please see my blog for the garden's pictures.) I hope you will come back to Japan with everybody, including an elder brother, who couldn't make it this time. Thank you very much once again. your guide & your friend, Ai

“ Expert photography and patience ”

My family had a very particular schedule that needed to be taken care and Ai delivered. We planned on dressing in traditional Japanese dress and taking pictures and Nijo Castle. Ai delivered with a great rental facility and escorted us to the Castle. She took high quality pictures and sent all of them to my wife quickly and efficiently. We could not have been happier

Ai:

Dear Todd Family, Thanks for having me. It was my pleasure to have a such happy and wonderful family. Although I had a class in the morning, you didn't complain at all. Your generous and warm atmosphere made me feel betteer and I was able to concentrate on taking good pictures. Thank you! Hope to see you again☆★( ´∀`)/ your guide & your friend, Ai

“ Wonderful introduction to Kyoto ”

Ai is a funny and charming tour guide and I had so much fun exploring Kyoto with her. She helped me navigate the subway, locate a temple I wanted to see, and even helped me find a gift I was looking for. All of which would have been quite a challenge for me alone. If you are in Osaka or Kyoto and you need a guide for either city, you cannot do better than Ai.

Ai:

Thank you for choosing me. It was very nice to meet you. I uploaded pics on my blog. Please check the entry, “Happy holidays from KYOTO.” Hope to see you again with your family in Japan.( ´∀`)/ your guide & friend, Ai
