Important

At Gion District, you may find real Maiko & Geisya, however, you cannot take photoes with them

The Merchants in Kyoto are very proud of their goods, and then it is not a good idea to request for discount.

“ Trip was smooth ”

I was pleased with the day tour to Hiroshima with Eric. I traveled with my 6-year old daughter, and I was a bit anxious about the trip. Eric was kind, considerate, and pretty flexible with re: our pace, interests, and (ice-cream) stops etc. On our way back, my credit cards did not work on the (shinkansen) ticket machines, and Eric paid for our tickets and asked us to pay it back when we reached an ATM (that did take our cards). I would definitely seek him out for future day tours if/when I travel to Japan again.

If we were to have done all the excursions ourselves we would have spent much longer trying to use the public transport system and finding the attractions whereas Eric knew the shorter routes and saved us much effort. He provided an insightful view of the attractions and of Japanese cultu... read more

“ Excellent Guide ”

Eric has been most helpful in helping my family and me plan our stay in Kyoto.

He has provided us very detailed itinerary ideas along with the associated costs of each. Thank you Eric.
