“ Great introduction to Kyoto ”

Yoshi was a great guide. He is very knowledgeable. He speaks English well and helped us accomplish our goal of being able to navigate 4 more days in Kyoto entirely on our own.

Yoshihisa:

Hi Rem, Thank you very much for your kind review for my tour in Kyoto. I hope you had a very pleasant tour for the rest of your stay in Kyoto. Be sure to get in touch with me if you have another chance of visiting Kansai region. I wish you the best of luck! With warmest regards, Yoshie

“ Great guide! ”

Yoshi was a great guide. We appreciated the stories he shared and how he gave us a feel for the city. Thoughtful, kind, generous man. We loved being able to be with someone who would focus on what we were interested in. Definitely recommend Yoshi!

Yoshihisa:

Hi Deborah, It is a great honor and pleasure to have such a superb review for my tour in Kyoto. I also enjoyed myself guiding you around the gardens, the temple and the shrine. It was good too to be able to see some cherry trees still in blossom. If there is another chance of visiting Kansai region, be sure to get in touch, please. With warmest regards, Yoshie

“ Nara Day Tour ”

Yoshie was AMAZING! We had such an enjoyable trip to Nara with Yoshie. He was an excellent tour guide who taught us about the culture. We really appreciate it Yoshie and my family had a wonderful time. He also is very flexible with schedule and time. Recommend him wholeheartedly for an awesome trip.

Yoshihisa:

Hi Trisha, Thank you very much for a wonderful review for my tour in Nara. I was pleased to see you and Mo enjoying feeding some deer a lot near Nigatsu-do Hall of Tohdai-ji Temple. It was also nice to be able to visit Asuka ni Imasu Shrine and Asuka-dera Temple. I hope you will return home safely with lots of good memory and souvenirs. With warmest regards, Yoshie

“ 6 hour Kyoto tour with 15 yr old grandson ”

Yoshie was at the well described meeting point, sign in hand with a gift of origami figures crafted by his wife for our grandson! As a former teacher, his English was good and he was very knowledgeable about the various sites we were able to visit in the short time we had with him. Knowing that our grandson was interested in manga, he arranged for us to visit the Manga Museum which was a big hit. Although we are very active and in good shape, we found his walking pace a bit too fast at times (guess he wanted to make sure we covered all the places we had asked to see)! Over lunch he wrote some very clear notes on suggestions for our next two days in Kyoto. Yoshie took some great photos of us during the day!

Yoshihisa:

Hi Skee, Thank you very much for writing a nice review for the tour in Kyoto. I am sometimes told that I walk too fast. I need to keep this precious advice in mind as a tour guide. Anyway I am glad that your grandson enjoyed visiting the Mnaga Museum. I hope your grandson will come to Kansai region and see me again when he grows older. With best regards, Yoshie
