What to Expect

"Be a Monkey!" Experience

Tired of temples and shrines?? Then how about surrounding yourself with wild monkeys?

In this monkey mountain, you can enjoy monkeys right beside you with no cages!! It is common to sit on a bench and monkeys will come join you.
It takes about 15-20min. walking to get to the top of the mountain, where you can buy treats for monkeys and feed them by hand!!
There's no place like Monkey Mountain on Earth!!

In addition to the monkeys, the harmony of Kyoto city and the colors of the mountains are breathtakingly beautiful especially in the spring and fall.

Beside monkey mountains, a stroll around Togetsu Bridge shopping and enjoying local street food, and the famous Bamboo Groves is so relaxing, it will make you forget about your hectic everyday life.

“ Amazing day in Kyoto! ”

We asked Masaki /Makoon for his services at the last moment. He was very responsive and quick with his answers. He drove us around in his own car, which was very convenient. He knows a lot and his english is perfect. He is a great guide and you wouldn't go wrong in hiring him.

Masaki was AMAZING !!! A "not to miss" if you are in Kyoto !!! He was a true gift during our trip. His command of the English language is excellent, and understanding of both cultures unparralleled. His knowledge of the area is vast. He is very accommodating with the age range in our group (16 yrs old - 56 yrs old) and his planning and follow through are impeccable!!! He even helped us plan the rest of our trip and assist with purchasing our train tickets. Riding in his private car with air conditioning was a real treat!!! If in Kyoto again will defiently plan with Masaki !!!
