“ Exciting tour of Nijo Castle ”

My mother and I had a wonderful tour of Kyoto with Toshiyo this month. Toshiyo was very personable, organized and accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. In particular, we really enjoyed touring Nijo Castle and Toshiyo was able to bring the castle to life with her stories and unique background information. Another highlight from our tour included a visit to Kiyomizu Temple which had incredible views and was a very enjoyable walk. She went out of her way to answer any of our questions and took several photos so that my mother and I would have very special memories from our visit. Toshiyo also took us to a delicious udon and tempura lunch which was a lot of fun. Thank you for a memorable day!


Dear Erin Thank you very much for your warm hearted review and having me as a guide. I am very glad you had a beautiful day and enjoyed Kyoto. I hope you could have a chance to come back again in autumn to see more beautiful nature. Thank you. Toshiyo

“ The best! ”

Toshiyo is an excellent guide! She is knowledgeable, energetic, and interesting, along with being kind, witty, and a lot of fun to be around. The perfect combination! She gave us a wonderful day in Kyoto, which we appreciated. We wish we had more!


Dear Julie Thank you very much for warm hearted review. I am very glad we could see the beautiful double petaled cherry blossoms. I will always remember white snake band with Ron’s performance when visiting Kinkakuji. Thank you for having me as a guide. Toshiyo

“ Amazing day with Toshi ”

Toshi took us on a day trip around Kyoto and we were very happy with her. Toshi is extremely knowledgeable about everything we asked. We also liked that she took us to places that were just as beautiful as the main tourist sites but less crowded (as we asked). We couldn’t recommend her enough!


Dear Adam Thank you very much for your warm hearted review. I am very glad you enjoyed Kyoto. I hope you could come back in autumn,which shows another natural beauty. Thank you. Toshiyo

“ Disappointing ”

1. Walked too fast despite multiple requests. Our group couldn't keep up.. 2. Did not give any information voluntarily . Only answered when we asked questions 3. Did not know that imperial palace will be closed ! We went all the way there to find out that it was closed. Guides should at least know that much.. a lot of time and energy was wasted because of that.


Some of your people didn’t understand English enough and I mentioned that my tour is for less than 8 and the leader didn’t organize your people. The present emperor visited Kyoto secretly and it was hard to know in advance.

“ Wonderfully Informative ”

We had a fantastic 4-hour tour with Toshiyo during our first day in Kyoto! Before meeting, I sent her our itinerary and she helped outline the best things we could accomplish during our time together. She met us promptly at our hotel lobby and helped us take the bus to the Silver Pavilion. From there we walked the back roads to the Philosopher's Path, all the way to Nanzenji Temple. Along the way Toshiyo was filling us in on the historic significance of every site, adding so much richness to the sites that we wouldn't have had other wise. She also happily answered a lot of our cultural questions. We had some extra time afterward so she took us to the Inari shine and then helped us buy our bullet train tickets. We'd happily book Toshiyo again and highly recommend her!


Dear Casey Thank you very much for having me as your guide and warm hearted review. I am very glad you got interested in our culture and had a pleasant time here. I hope you can come back in autumn. You will find different aspects of Japan. Best regards. Toshiyo
