What to Expect

Kyoto is an ancient city, which used to like be the capital of Japan for 1000 years. There are about 1600 temples and 400 shrines and beautiful gardens. It also has a lot of traditional crafts,such as kimono, fans, Japanese artistic sweets. There are a lot of things to do and experience. First of all I will take you to Gion area.I will take you to Yasaka Shrine and Kenninji Temple. Then let's move to the Nishiki market. and have sushi lunch in the market. Gion is the area of entertainment, where there are many bars and taverns. Some important business and political talks have been conducted. You may run across Maiko and Geiko, Japanese entertainers in kimono. If you want to wear Japanese costume in Gion, I can arrange with extra charge. NIshiki market is the kitchen of the Kyoro, where local people buy their everyday food. Fish stores, vegetable stores, pickles stores and so on. A friend of mine owns a Yuba shop in the market. Yuba is vegan, dairy-free ,gluten free,preserve-free, additive-free and protein rich. You can see the yuba making process.

“ 5 star guide ????? ”

Toshiyo was fantastic. We had a great time with her. As I was traveling with my husband and children (ages 13,11,10 & 1) I wanted someone to show us around so that we wouldn't get lost or frustrated. We followed her lead and was very happy with our tour. She was very knowledgable of Kyoto's history and extremely considerate of my family. We moved at our own pace and really took in the sights.

“ Full day guided tour of Kyoto ”

Toshi was great! She chose the best place to visit and we were extremely happy with her choices. Toshi spoke good English and was a pleasure to talk to and to spend the day with. We had a group of six people from 18 to 68 years of age, and from fit to very unfit. Toshi kept us going but at a pace that allowed for everyone in the group. Very understanding and very relaxed. A great day, great sightseeing, and a great tour guide. Highly recommended. Well done Toshi.

“ Great Kyoto tour! ”

Toshiyo was very helpful and knowledgeable. She was also accommodating with our plans. We were traveling with a toddler and we appreciated her patience during the tour. She also arranged for lunch at a local restaurant that we would not have experienced without her. The food was delicious. We highly recommend her.
