Overview

There are two distinct Japans coexisting in one fascinating country. One is the fast paced, packed train, high tech modern Japan. The other is ancient Japan, full of tradition, a strong sense of community and a deep connection with the land and the changing seasons. Miyama is a region 50 kilometres to the north of Kyoto city surrounded by mountains(About Miyama by Max Whittle)

Miyama is a region 50 kilometres to the north of Kyoto city surrounded by mountains. Thanks to this geographic isolation the old Japan has been kept alive here and is flourishing in a country now trying to reconnect with its roots.

  • English ( License )

I had been working as an English-speaking taxi driver in Kyoto for about 4 years from March 2012 to May 2016. During that time I guided many visitors from abroad around Kyoto. In June 2016 I decided to quit working as a taxi driver and become a self-employed English tour guide. As I'm a licensed English tour guide and a professional driver, I can guide visitors from abroad around Kyoto, Nara, and other places in my car. 6 passengers maximum. English guiding is 4,000 yen/hour. No extra charge for carfare. As I'm not a taxi driver, I cannot receive any money for carfare. I will take you anywhere you like in my car mainly in the Kansai Region. read more

“ Highlight of our Kyoto Trip ”

Mitsuyuki is a mature guide with fairly good working knowledge of English. Punctual in picking us up from our hotel, the guided tour came with his own personally driven car. Flexible and was generous in offering travel suggestions. We paid for parking, lunch and admission fees as stated on the website. Mitsuyuki was also culturally sensitive to our food preferences and did his due diligence when he selected the appropriate place to take us for lunch. All in all, a day and money well-spent guided by a knowledgeable man and good driver with a wealth of information and history to share of his beautiful country.

“ Excellent guide ”

I am an experienced world traveler who often hires local guides to introduce a city or geographic attraction with which I am unfamiliar. Having never visited the Osaka region in Japan I searched for guide options and selected Mitsuyuki based on reviews from other travelers. I was not disappointed. Mitsu-san not only has a great deal of experience, but an excellent command of English and a warm personality. If you are seeking a guide for Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, or adjacent areas, I strongly recommend Mitsuyuki.

“ Kyoto and Nara Tours ”

Mitsuyuki san is an excellent guide. He is flexible and plan well for the tour. In fact, way before the tour he contacted us to finalize the itinerary and to accommodate any special request. In addition, his command on English is excellent and we can communicate well. We do enjoy our trips! Thanks Mitsu san! Would definitely sign up for his tour when visiting Kyoto and Nara again.

Mitsuyuki is a wonderful driver who guided us to Nara for half day tour. He is punctual, friendly and speaks excellent English. He drove us to the entrances and we were able to see more in the time we had. His car is very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend him!
