Yoshie was absolutely fantastic. He was very nice and accommodating, and helped specialize the tour and sites to meet our individual wants/desires. Yoshie was very informative and provided insight to details that we would not have noticed without him. It was a pleasure to spend the day with Yoshie and we would recommend him to anyone visiting Kyoto.
Yoshi was wonderful showing us around Nara on a very hot day. Very knowledgeable. Lovely day. Would strongly recommend him. Traveler's tip: because it was so hot, we took a taxi twice while in Nara. Each time under 1000 yen so very much worth having the air conditioned ride as a quick rest!
We only had one day in Kyoto so we asked Yoshi to move quickly through the city and still see all the sites and that he did. We saw everything that we wanted to see but never felt rushed. Yoshi was great- we recommend him!
We spent a wonderful day in Kyoto chiefly thanks to our knowledgeable guide. He met us At our hotel in Osaka and guided us through the public transportation. While we had several sites we wanted to see, we also took a couple of suggestions from our guide, Yoshie. Two musts for us were the bamboo forests and Fushii Inari Grand Shrine. we visited several other shrines and a monkey park. Yoshie suggested where to eat lunch and stayed with us through dinner and both restaurant suggestions were excellent. We were visiting from San Diego and would highly recommend Triplelighs and Yoshihisa as a guide. They in regular contact with us as our trip neared. We were thoroughly satisfied.
We had a lovely time touring with Yoshie-san along the shrines and temples of Kyoto. Yoshie-san is very informative with every places we've visited. At the end of the tour, we ate in an izakaya place. Being a tour guide is a tiring and challenging job, but Yoshie-san told me that it is a fulfilling one as he gets to meet other people and tell them about Kyoto's vibrant history. My friends and I wish to return the favor of touring Yoshie-san and his wife should he visit the Philippines someday!
