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.

“ Customized tour in Eastern Kyoto ”

We started our tour at the Silver Pavillon, and then moved south towards Kiyomizu-dera. Toshiyo showed us to many beautiful places we would not have found on our own, explained and pointed things out. It was a nice experience, and for us as non-native speakers her english was clear and easy to understand.


Hi Thank you for warm hearted review. I am glad you had a good time in Kyoto. I was a bit worried you could make it to Kiyomizudera temple. If your nephew and you will have a longer time in summer I will give you accommodation at my place I really want to visit Berlin. Please let me know. Best regards.

“ Amazing and Unorthodox Tour of Kyoto ”

We wanted to go to antique and craft stores around Kyoto which caught Toshi off guard but she brought us to the exact kinds of stores we wanted to go to. As we walked around Kyoto, Toshi made sure to teach us about the history and quirks of the city. For lunch she brought us to an amazing old noodle house which itself was an experience. An overall wonderful day with a very knowledgable guide.


I am happy to know that you were satisfied with the tour. You are much artistic minded and refined. There are more to explore in this ancient capital. So I really hope you will come back again. Best regards. Toshiyo

“ Great Tour of Kyoto Sights ”

My wife,Daughter (11) and myself had a very nice 1 day tour of Kyoto.It is impossible to see everything that Kyoto has to offer in one day but Toshiyo was able to take us to both beautiful shrines and temples and older parts of Kyoto but also parts of modern downtown.For us a nice mix of everything. Toshiyo is very knowledgeable and patient so our tour with her was a perfect introduction to Kyoto and was a big help in the 2 days that we spent getting to know Kyoto by ourselves. Many thanks for all your help Toshiyo


Dear Kevin Thank you very much for your warm hearted review. I am happy to know you and your beautiful wife and daughter had a good time in Kyoto. I appreciate the pretty cloth brought from Indonesia. I hope I can visit Bali with this. Thanks again. Toshiyo has

“ Amazing day in Kyoto! ”

Toshi was a great guide for my first day in Kyoto. We went all over the city, which allowed me not only to take in some amazing sights but also to get to know the bus and subway systems so I could use them by myself the rest of the trip. Toshi also gave me tips on additional places to go and the best timing to avoid the crowds. For example, I was planning to go to Kiyomizu-dera on the 2nd day but as she and I ended at Kodak-ji which was pretty close, she suggested that I go that same day as there would be fewer people later in the day. And she was right! I appreciated that Toshi provided lots of facts and insight about the places we visited, without making it feel like a lecture. We had a good time chatting and getting to know each other a bit throughout the day. Toshi also picked a... read more
