“ Kyoto and Nara ”

We have traveled extensively and Toshiyo was the best tour guide. She was a most gracious and knowledgeable companion in visiting these historic sites. Toshiyo is very special and we are very grateful that we met her!

Toshiyo:

Dear Dorothy and Moses, Thank you very much for your warm hearted review. I appreciate you having me as your guide for your precious trip to Kyoto and Nara. I was much impressed and moved by your stories. I hope you had a great time in Japan and will come back again. Toshiyo

“ Nice Tour and Great Person ”

Prior to the trip, Toshiyo and I communicated several times to finalize what we wanted to see in Kyoto. We did a day trip from Tokyo and she met us at the train station and we were off to our sights. She showed each site very well and used public transportation and taxis if needed. Her English is very very good and she was able to clearly understand and effectively communicate with us. We would certainly use her services again the next time we are in the Kyoto area.

Toshiyo:

Dear Navendra Thank you very much for you having me as your guide. I enjoyed being with you. I am glad you had a good time in Kyoto because you cane all the way to visit Kyoto. I appreciate your visit. Please come back again in spring and autumn. Thank you again. Toshiyo

“ Great one day trip to Kyoto with Toshiyo ”

We had a great one day trip to Kyoto with Toshi. She was very prompt to reply to all my questions before booking the trip. We were taking the early morning bulletin train from a Tokyo and she met us at the train station. We went to 5 places (Inari Shinto shrine, bamboo forest, imperial castle, golden pavilion and one more place). I am so glad that Toshi was with us to navigate the city as these sites were spread all over. We had a great day in Kyoto- Thank you Toshi.

Toshiyo:

Hi Amna Thank you very much for your having me as your guide. I am glad you enjoyed Kyoto. And we had a relaxed time with fewer tourists in tourist spots. Please come back again in spring and autumn to see more beautiful places. Thank you. Toshiyo

Toshiyo was the greatest thing to happen to our group. My friends and I have been visiting Japan and have been trying to soak up the best elements. She was extremely flexible, punctual and professional, extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Not only did we see it all we learned it all. Thank you Toshiyo-San

“ Amazing Tour of Kyoto! ”

My colleagues and I were able to spend one day in Kyoto and greatly enjoyed our time and tour with Toshiyo! She tailored out tour according to what we desired. Also, as the tour went on, we were able to change some items to ensure that we were able to see those places which were most important to us. She was very informative and had a wealth of information about the city, the sites, and many other interesting facts. She brought us to an authentic small Japanese restaurant for lunch which we really enjoyed! I recommend Toshiyo as a guide for those coming to Kyoto!

Toshiyo:

Dear Jennifer Thank you very much for having me as your guide. To start early in the morning was the best choice and I am very glad you enjoyed Kyoto. Winter Kyoto has been warm and very pretty with calm atmosphere. Thank you very much for spending time in Kyoto. Toshiyo
