Overview

This tour takes you to the two areas, Fushimi and Arashiyama. Both areas are a little away from central Kyoto and have the serene atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable. Please enjoy another Kyoto with classical boat riding, playing with monkeys, etc.

What to Expect

In the past, Fushimi area was a port facing to a large lake. Now you can enjoy riding the classical boat through the river and also enjoy visiting classical Sake brewery where you can feel the old days and even try tasting various Sake.
Arashiyama is the area where still keeps atmosphere of ancient Kyoto. In addition to the Bamboo groove walk, you can enjoy the garden of Tenryuuji temple or playing with monkeys in the monkey mountain park.
I am sure this tour makes a memorable day in your stay in Kyoto.

“ Fantastic!! ”

I highly recommend Rick. He made our visit to Kyoto the highlight of our Japan visit. Since we were first time visitors to Japan and a diversified group of senior ladies, I let Rick plan our itinerary. He did a wonderful job making accommodations for our group; picking wonderful sights, shrines, temples, gardens, etc.; very informative, punctual, friendly, etc. Each day was a new and wonderful experience. Everyone in our group enjoyed Rick as our tour guide. Rick, thank you very much for a great time.

Rick:

Dear Marsha, Thank you very much for your nice review! I suppose you are back home safely. It was my pleasure to have showed you the best spots in Kyoto and you liked them. I also enjoyed talking with all of you very much during the tour and it will be my nice memory. I hope I can see you again in future. Best regards, Rick

“ Friendly, expert guide in Kyoto ”

Rick gave us an excellent 5-hr tour of several sites in Kyoto in March 2019. We thoroughly appreciated his engaging descriptions of the fine details of the buildings we visited, as well as his knowledgeable explanations of relevant historical events. Rick is very personable and provided thoughtful answers to our many questions about what we were seeing. Thank you, Rick!

Rick:

Dear Michael, Thank you very much for your nice review! I was glad to have had the tour with talking various things with you two and had a nice time. I think you loved this nice city Kyoto and please come back in future. I hope I can see you again. Best regards, Rick

“ A wonderful time in Kyoto ”

We spent two days with Rick seeing wonderful things in Kyoto. Our tour spanned the things that I expressly asked Rick to see and do, such as visiting the most important historical and cultural sights, visiting out of the way gems, shopping for artisanal chocolates, seeing life as a native would and experiencing the many crafts that the area is known for. We truly enjoyed our two days with Rick- the time flew by, and we are very thankful for all of his knowledge and guidance in learning about this most special place.

Rick:

Dear Debra and Steve, Thank you very much for your nice review ! I am very glad that you enjoyed the tour and had a nice time. It was also nice time for me especially visiting Kyoto museum of traditional crafts where you found the nice thing by the artisan. I am glad that you enjoyed other spots and I understood that you really love the Japanese culture. I hope that the tour will be a nice memory for you and I can see you again in future. Best regards, Rick

“ Kyoto Native ”

Rick came prepared with a plan and information that made the day more enjoyable and informative than we expected. Having lived in Kyoto most of his life, but also having worked in the US, Rick was knowledgeable and was someone you could relate to. We had an enjoyable day.

Rick:

Dear Thomas and Carole, Thank you very much for your nice review ! It was also enjoyable time for me to have had the tour with you two. I had a nice time talking with you and I am glad that you liked Kyoto. I hope you will come back in near future. Best regards, Rick

“ A full day in Kyoto ”

We (four of us) spent a full day with Rick in Hakone. The day was a little rainy but the sights were fabulous. What a wonderful city. Rick was very helpful in terms of getting places quickly and efficiently as well as informing us of things we would not have otherwise been able to find out. I would recommend using Rick to anyone visiting Kyoto or Osaka.

Rick:

Dear Greg, Thank you very much for your nice review. I 'm very glad that you found Kyoto a wonderful city. I also had a very nice time talking and walking with you all. All of you are so nice people and that helped me a lot in touring Kyoto. I hope you will have nice time during the rest of your stay in Japan and hope I can see you again in future. Best regards, Rick
