“ A professional, pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable guide ”

I truly enjoyed my 2 days with Yasuna, she is a very nice person and professional guide. She planned very well all the things/places I wanted to see/do during my short stay in Kyoto and she is a pleasure to be with. She is very calm and can adapt easily to the changes of pace or interests during the tour. For me as a solo traveler Yasuna is the perfect personal guide. Thank you Yasuna ! Jc p.s. Kyoto was my preferred place of my Japan trip


Hi, Jean-Claude! Thank you for lots of kind words for me. You are a pleasant guest too! I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed 2 days with me, and Kyoto became your favorite city in Japan. I enjoyed too. It was nice to learn about your country. You should take your family with you next time, and we can try more different attractions! Merci! I'm looking forward to seeing you again in near future! kind regards, Yasuna
