“ Excellent ”

Yoshi is a great tour guide. He was very informative and patient. We did the full day Kyoto tour and we added a couple of locations, so he spent over 11 hours with us. We took the public transportation which he easily navigated us through. I highly recommend Yoshi!

Yoshihisa:

Hi Josephine. Have your returned home safely with lots of nice memories and and souvenirs? I had a very nice time guiding you around Kyoto although it was pretty dark at the last attraction, Fushimi Inari Grand Shrine. I appreciate your kind review for my tour. If you have another chance of visiting Kansai region, be sure to get in touch. With best regards, Yoshie

“ A fascinating, full day with Yoshie ”

We just spent a full, fascinating and delightful day being guided through Kyoto by Yoshihisa. We visited many of the major sites, which he curates beautifully, and we never felt rushed nor stressed. A former English teacher, Yoshie is a wealth of history, stories, poems and puns. If you are visiting Kyoto for the first time, I highly recommend spending your first day with Yoshie.

Yoshihisa:

Hi Jim. I really appreciate your kind words of gratitude. I am very pleased to learn that you and your wife enjoyed yesterday's tour with me. I hope you will continue a nice trip and return home safely with lots of pleasnt memories in Japan. Next time you visit Japan in early April or late November, be sure to get in touch, please. Thank you again. With best wishes, Yoshie

“ Amazing Kyoto and Nara tour with Yoshie! ”

Yoshie is an extremely knowledgeable guide, he showed us (a family of 5 - children aged 16,13 and 10) the highlights of Kyoto and Nara across 3 days. He is full of interesting and amusing facts as well as being a kind, thoughtful and generous guide. A particular highlight was our meal in a traditional Izakaya restaurant - SUCH fun!! Thank you Yoshie!

Yoshihisa:

Hi Meg, Thank you very much for your quick and kind review for my tour. It has been terribly hot for the three days in Kyoto and Nara. I appreciate your patience, listening to me attentively in spite of the heat and humidity. Yesterday we had a karaoke party near the izakaya restaurant and I told the chef that you and your family had been very pleased with your meals and kind hospitality. He was also delighted to hear it. I hope you will continue a pleasant trip and return home safely with lots of nice memories and souvenirs. Next time you visit Kansai region, be sure to get in touch, please. With the best wishes, Yoshie
