“ Kyoto tour ”

Well planned and enthusiastic. Created an itinerary to meet with our desired interests. Knowledgeable and experienced.

KASHIMA:

Mark san, Thank you very much for your great comments for me. I am pleased that you and your group enjoyed a lot of Kyoto one day tour. Bsed on your preference, we made an itinerary to avoid very touristy places such as Kinkakuji/Golden Pavillion and selected less touristy places such as Arashiyama, Tenryuji temple, Bamboo forest, Ryoanji trmple, Shinsenen garden ang Gion. Thanks to strong curiosity of your group about not only Japanese historey and culture but also Japanese everyday affairs, we could make precious information excahnge a lot. I am looking forward to have another chance to guide you when you come to Japan again in future. Thanks, Kashima

“ Tiur on Nara ”

we had very nice tour with Kashima - he was prepared in excellent manner, all on time, and he has shared with us interesting stories on Nara. very entusiastic about his job.

KASHIMA:

Katarzyna san, Thank you very much for your warm and great comments to me. I am very much pleased that you enjoyed ancient atomosphere of Nara and could understand the excellence of Nara. There are spacious and graceful view with no modern building built on their surrounding such as Todaiji, Great Buddha, Kasuga-Taisha, Nara park, Toshoudaiji temple and Yakushiji temple where we visited. We enjoyed to talk with each other about not only the historical difference between Nara and Kyoto but also various topics for both Poland and Japan. I am looking forward to meeting with you again for your next trip in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Hideo Kashima Review ”

Kashima was wonderful throughout a long day of touring. He was very knowledgeable about all sites visited. I highly recommend a tour led by Hideo.

KASHIMA:

James san, Thank you very much for your great comments for me. I am very much pleased and appreciated that you and your wife enjoyed the tour of Tokyo such as Tsukiji outer market, Tsukiji-Honganji, Namiyoke Inari Shrine, Imperial palace and the overview from the highest observation floor of both Tokyo tower and Skytree even if it was fairly hot on the day and we walked by fairly lots of steps. I was impressed that you and your wife were so interested in Japanese culture, history and beautiful landscape. I am looking forward to meeting again for your next visit in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Great Guide ”

We spent an entire day with Kashima. As promised, he met us in our lobby at 830am. We had a busy day planned and he helped us navigate the subway and trains to get to six different areas throughout the city. He made us a dinner reservation and helped us find a great hole in the wall spot for lunch. He also purchased our transit passes in advance. Kashima was funny and has better than basic English speaking abilities. Although his pronunciation was difficult to understand at times, his understanding of our questions was fine. He was able to answer anything we asked. He also prepared us a tour packet in advance that we enjoyed, and he allowed us to make changes on the fly without question. I would use Kashima again.

KASHIMA:

Philips san, Thank you very much for your great comments for me. I am very much appreciated that you spent lots of effort to study Japan tour spots before you come here and made a very condensed tour plan including the best spots such as Asakusa/Sensoji temple, Tokyo tower, Imperial palace, Zojyoji temple, Meiji shrine, Takeshita-street and Shibuya crossing. The combination of ancient traditional atmosphere and that of the best modernized town was very nice to feel the excellent contrast. We enjoyed to talk with each other about not only Japanese history and culture for each spots but also various topics and comparison for both USA and Japan. I am looking forward to meeting with you again for your next trip in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Amazing! Cannot imagine a better guide! ”

Had a great day trip to Kamakura! Kashima provided a detailed itinerary based on my wishes and was flexible and I changed and added some things. We had tea ceremony per my request in jomyoji temple, which I would highly recommend! Kashima met me promptly in my hotel and provided me with a printed and bound copy of our intinerary as well as pictures and detailed information about our day. He was flexible as I wanted to stop various places and shop. He was so friendly and helpful and I had the absolute best day! Highly recommend Kashima!

KASHIMA:

Rebecca san, Thank you very much for your kind review as great as any. And I appreciate you for taking a little risk to go Kamakura tour under the condition of typhoon approaching to Kanto area on the day. Fortunately, the whether was sunny in the morning and you could enjoy a tea ceremony experience in Jomyoji temple with very quiet circumstance without any tourists there. I think that you could feel deep feeling of Zen Buddhism related atmosphere combined with the dry landscape garden. I also very much enjoyed with you by lots of information exchanged each other and I could learn a lot by receiving lots of interesting questions from you. I am looking forward to meeting you again in future and getting lots of new questions from you. Thanks, Kashima
