Katsura Imperial Villa is too beautiful to express! In the early Edo period, Prince Toshihito, who excelled in both literature and the martial art from childhood, built the Villa. That is both tasteful and simple. We need to apply for the Imperial Household Agency to get in. I will apply for you by postcard. It takes an hour to see the villa by the special guide of the villa. The fee is free.

What to Expect

Katsura Imperial Villa needs admission in advance. The number of visitors is limited. So visit to Katsura Imperial Villa is worth visiting. I am sure you will be satisfied with this artistic sensibility.

“ Travel with a guide as a local ”

Toshiyo was very patient and understood our needs immediately. The experience of using public transport was great too. We enjoyed going to the bamboo forest seeing the area the temples and then visiting the temple with 1000 gates

“ Wonderful day in sweltering heat! ”

Despite the hot temperatures it was a lovely day seeing the sights with Toshiyo! She was prompt, funny, knowledgeable and sweet. Her English is excellent and she adapted the trip as we went along given our needs and desires. I would highly recommend her and look forward to using her again on a return trip to Kyoto.


Thank you for the warm hearted review. I am very happy that you had a good pleasant time in Kyoto. Please say hello to your family! Maggi’s disappeared . Please tell her. Thank you . I am looking forward to seeing you again, Toshiyo

“ Excellent tour ”

We had a great time going around Kyoto. It was our first time in Japan really enjoyed the tour although it was very hot.


Thank you very much for the review. I was much impressed with your beautiful family. If it were cooler we could have visited more places. Please come back and see more. Best regards. Toshiyo

“ Nara with Toshi..... This girl can walk! ”

We booked four hours in Nara with Toshi. We missed our train so we were a little late getting to our agreed connection point at the train station but Toshi was there waiting for us. I think that Toshi wanted to make sure we got to all the previously identified locations, so off we went at a pretty quick pace which was right in step with my gate but a little too fast for my wife and daughters. Toshi's command of English was good so communication was not an issue. More often we needed to ask for explanations or historical background rather than having it offered. If Toshi didn't know the information we requested she would ask someone; so we always got answers to our questions. Toshi was happy to engage in conversation of any kind.


Hi Jim Thank you for the review. I am sorry to know that I had walked too quickly. Please apologize to your wife and daughters. It was a pleasant day and we could see most of Nara’s highlights. Thank you very much for being in my tour. Toshiyo

“ A patient guide ”

Toshiyo was punctual. I decided to get a guide as I was travelling with 2 elderly people, one who requires a wheelchair. She was very patient. She bought tickets for places we wanted to visit and suggested lunch places. She works with you to plan the itinerary, Highly recommended.


Thank you for the warm hearted review. I was very impressed with your manners. You care much about your each family member. I hope I did enough help for you. Thank you very much for choosing me as your guide.
