“ We saw the Ninjo castle, and the Nishiki market. ”

We went to a local place to a sushi bar. The price was much more reasonable than the more tourist places.

“ An Excellent and Reliable Guide ”

We were with Mr. Kazu for 3 days; Nara, Kyoto, and Himeji Castle. In those 3 days, we were very happy to be with him as he is most helpful in everything that we needed. He even made lunch reservations for all 3 days for us. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Mr. Kazu again on our next visit to Japan. Thank you very much Mr. Kazu!

“ Enjoyed our Kyoto tour with Kazuhiko ”

Kazuhiko was a good tour guide for our group of 6. We were able to understand his English, appreciated his personal stories, and his knowledge of the areas we visited. He was flexible when we wanted to adjust the itinerary due to time constraints. He took us to a lovely, authentic Japanese restaurant for lunch. A pleasant experience all in all.

“ Fun filled day in Kyoto ”

Kazuhiko, or Kazu as he asked us to call him, was an exceptional guide who went above and beyond to make our experience truly memorable. Even before meeting us for our tour, Kazu was extremely helpful. Our group was rather large (17) and he not only planned a full day of site seeing but also made lunch reservations for the entire group at a delicious soba restaurant. Everyone in our group loved it! During our day, Kazu took us to four of Kyoto’s most beautiful sites and at each location had handouts with details and important information. He did so much pre-work to make the day run smoothly. I highly recommend Kazu as a guide because of his knowledge, helpfulness (a member of our group lost a phone at Konkani-ji temple and he helped us located it), attention to details and delightful p... read more

Dear Ms.Amy Hinds I appreciate your feedback. I’m very pleased that your group enjoyed their tour. I had great time as well showing your nice group around Kyoto. Moreover, thank you for your nice present. I have guided many groups for about 4 years. However, it is first time for me to guide a large group of people by public transportation. Thanks to your help, I was able to guide them smoothly. Moreover, your group was well organized and they listened to my explanation earnestly. Therefore, I was able to do my best. Thank you!! I'm sorry that I have made your group walk a lot. I hope that they remove tiredness. I sincerely hope this experience was memorable and many students become interested in Japanese culture, arts, history etc.. I sincerely hope you and your m... read more
