“ A full day of many new and wonderful experiences ”

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our day in Kyoto because of Yasuna. She understood our desire to see a mix ancient and modern Japan and balanced the day. We had a full day of activity and was amazed by the variety of new experiences. Our day included many Buddah and Shinto shrines, street shopping and different experiences to include Green Tea and Cherry Blossom ice cream. All six of my family and friiends enjoyed having Yasuna as our guide. I highly recommend you engage her services to fully experience and enjoy Kyoto.

Yasuna:

Thank you very much, Zevie! I enjoyed your company a lot :-) It was great meeting you all! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Kyoto with me. I thought it's so sweet that you, your family and friends gathered all together and you are travelling around together. I hope this New Year will bring you lots of happiness and joy to all of you. You should stay here longer next time! I welcome you anytime. See you again. kind regards, Yasuna

“ Good visit of Kyoto’ ”

Yasuna was a great guide who accommodated our request to start our tour earlier and avoid crowds. She took us to 3 temples and told us the history and information about Kyoto. She was kind and knew her way around the city. She gave us directions on how to navigate the public transit and answered all our questions. Plus she gave us the cutest origami leaves with our names on them! Great day in Kyoto!

Yasuna:

Hi, Erin! Thank you very much for the great review! It was lucky that we had the perfect weather, and we could see some autumn leaves. I hope your stay in Kyoto became a memorable part of your trip! See you again someday. I welcome you anytime! kind regards, Yasuna
