“ Kyoto’s Wonderful Golden Route with Yoshie ”

My family and I had a wonderful day on Yoshie’s Favourite Golden Route covering north-western Kyoto. Firstly he obliged with a change request to the itinerary, and he helped us all day across the different transport options to get to the various sights and eventually back to the hotel. Yoshie also recommended other sights in our remaining days in Kyoto that we would enjoy (and we certainly did). His knowledge of the sights and local history was great, his English was excellent, and we really enjoyed his happy, relaxed and engaging manner. He even helped and motivated some of the more lethargic members of our party up the hill to see the monkeys in Arashiyama (one of our itinerary change requests)! All in all, we had a great day visiting some beautifu sights and we would definitely rec... read more

Yoshihisa:

Hi Grant. Thank you very much for your heartwarming review. Thanks to the beautiful autumn day, I also took in the amazing scenery of colored leaves in Arashiyama. I had a wonderful time guiding you and your nice family around the north-western part of Kyoto. I was deeply impressed by your strong affection toward your children, too. Next time you visit Kansai region, be sure to get in touch, please. I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. With warmest regards. Yoshie

“ Tour of Nara ”

We had a great experience with Yoshi. He is a lovely person and a very knowledgeable guide. After the tour, we have a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and traditions. Every detail of the tour was perfectly planned out, he even showed us the best spots for taking photos. Thank you Yoshihisa!

Yoshihisa:

Hi Julia. Thank you very much for your kind review. I also had a pleasant time guiding you and your husband around Nara. I wish he had had an experience of sake tasting at a sake brewery in Nara Machi, an old quarter of Nara. I sincererly hope you will return home safely with lots of nice memories and souvenirs. Be sure to get in touch with me next time you come to Kansai district. With best wishes, Yoshie

“ Great time visiting Kyoto and Osaka ”

We truly enjoyed spending 2 days touring Kyoto and Osaka with Yoshi. He is professional, knowledgeable and is a very nice person. We had some personal issues during the first day and Yoshi was very helpful in helping to overcome those obstacles. He arranged the day in a very organized fashion and managed to get a lot of sights into a relatively short period of time. I would definitely recommend Yoshi for touring Osaka or Kyoto.

Yoshihisa:

Hi Alex. Thank you very much for your heart-warming review in spite of your personal issues. I am still wondering if there was a better way to help you more. I sincerely hope you will have a more pleasant time in Shimizu and Tokyo and return home safely with lots of souvenirs. Be sure to get in touch next time you have a chance of visiting Kyoto again. With warmest regards, Yoshie
