What to Expect

This tour is the one and only for you.

Kyoto was an ancient capital of Japan for over 1200 years. Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it offers too much to see in one visit. Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern.
The phenomenal concentration of history and legend coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life.
Please tell me your interest, and I will make an itinerary exclusively for you!
*Please note that we use public transportation.

For example, you would like to experience
-Cherry Blossoms in Late March-Early April
-the main attractions of Kyoto
-nature and animals
-a traditional pottery workshop and make your original gifts
-new style stage show only in Kyoto
-ramen street

“ Extensive visit to kyoto ”

Masaki made our visit to Kyoto memorable. He was flexible with our itinerary, had great presentation skills and spoke fluent English. He helped us make restaurant reservations for my birthday. We enjoyed learning about the culture and history of Japan from him. If I go back to Kyoto I would hire him again.

“ Knowledgeable and Friendly ”

It was my husband and mine’s first trip to Japan and it was our honeymoon. We were fortunate to have booked Makoon. From day 1, it was easy to plan our trip. Communications were clear and prompt. He was knowledgeable and friendly throughout the trip. He was respectful of us Muslims and ensured every food we tried was halal. He also suggested places to eat as well. We were able to explore Japan in 2 days and he the planning was precise. We hope to book Makoon again on our next trip.

“ Thank you Makoon! ”

Makoon did an amazing job from start to finish. He was great communicating with us prior to our visit. Once we got there, he was easy to understand and showed us a great time in Kyoto. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the city and the Geisha culture. He also brought us to a fantastic Ramen spot for lunch. Anyone coming to Kyoto and looking to have a guide should book Makoon!

Masaki:

Dear Zack san I'd like to express my sincere appreciation to your kind words. It was great to see quite a lot of sites in one day! I really hope you like some of the photo, and it will bring back the good time you spend in Kyoto! Please enjoy the rest of your trip, and I'm sincerely looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Warm Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori

“ THE BEST TOUR GUIDE IN KYOTO! ”

Makoon is simply THE BEST tour guide in Kyoto! We had a wonderful time with Makoon. He was amazing not only with my 10 year old daughter but also my 70 year old parents who traveled with us. We learned so much about Kyoto with our limited schedule. He was engaging, funny, kind, thoughtful and fun! We are thinking of visiting Kyoto again so that we can tour more with Makoon - that's how great he is! He is extremely organized and our tours were very well thought out and planned. We would most definitely recommend Makoon to all our family and friends.

Masaki:

Dear Edwina It's truly an honor for me to receive review like yours. It was great to spend time with you and your bright family, parents like your best friends and super smart daughter! I really hope my daughter will grow up like her! Even though we did a lot in limited time, but there are always more to offer in Kyoto, next time we will have even more in depth tour!! Warm Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori
