“ Wonderful day with a thoughtful guide! ”

I was eager to see lots of Kyoto in the limited time I had there. As a former History teacher, Masaki helped me work out a great itinerary to make the most of my time, prior to my trip. The day of my tour, Masaki arrived promptly and immediately began pointing out places of interest from steps from my Ryokan. Masaki never missed an opportunity to point out the things that were of importance to me, and went out of his way to take busses & trains in order to navigate the city quickly. He was thoughtful and always eager to discuss traditions and customs that I was unfamiliar with. I enjoyed our time in the Temples & Shrines talking about religions and relations between our two countries! He was kind, patient, and always made sure we were moving a comfortable pace for me. If I returned to Kyot... read more

“ Amazing day ”

Masaki San was explaining very well with a clear and delicate voice: he makes you dive right into the stories as it was a movie ! With the homemade illustrated book that he carries around, you can picture it even more ! He is not only a good guide, but he is also an amazing human being ! Even if the day spent with Masaki San was rainy, he managed to make it sunny :) We recommend him 100% ! Thank you so much !!! See you next time hopefully !

Masaki:

Hi John and Jean, Thank you for sending a good review. This is the moment I feel happy to be a guide. Kyoto was a capital for 1000 years, full fo historical attractions. Wish this history experience could give you a hint to your business success. As I told you during the tour, I may visit New York in next or next next January. I am sure to visit your restaurant to enjoy delicious Japanese dishes. Looking forward to seeing you again in New York. Masaki

“ An excellent guide with a thirst for adventure! ”

Masaki was a wonderful and accommodating guide who was able to put together 2 days of off -the-beaten track adventures to Yuasa and Tsukigase. For us, traveling to a different country means meaningful interactions with locals and their way of life and this was encapsulated in our 2 days with Masaki. He was detailed oriented and meticulous. We couldn’t have asked for a better traveling companion!

Masaki:

Hi Sandra, thank you for a good review. Hear you are now in Europe. Take care of yourself there. See you!!!

“ Kyoto-Arashiyama, Ryoanji, Gion ”

We can’t thank Masaki enough for his personalized tour. He was knowledgeable about the sites we visited and led us through some very cool zen exercises while at Ryoanji temple. He provided us with some spectacular photos after our tour and when we are concerned about emergency alerts regarding flood conditions, he reached out to us to provide helpful advice. In the end he was more than just a tour guide but a friend.

Masaki:

John, thank you for sending a good review. Glad to hear your safe return. Hope God blesses you and your wonderful family. Masaki
