Toshi is a great tour guide. She has a lot of energy and is very knowledgable. I enjoyed going to the temples/shrines with Toshi. She would come up with some surprising details that made the visit so much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Toshiyo as a guide.
Dear Prasanna Thank you very much for your warm hearted review. I appreciate your coming to hot Kyoto. I am happy you enjoyed very quiet Kyoto. I hope to see you again. Best regards. Toshiyo
Toshiyo was very knowledgeable of the Osaka area. With several places closed she was still able to provide a full day of visiting various sites.
Dear l Dennis Thank you very much for having me as your guide. I am afraid we walked a lot but I hope you enjoyed Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. I appreciate your kindness. Thank you very much. Best regards. Toshiyo
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!
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
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.
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
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.
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
