“ Wonderful. ”

Mari was a super guide with excellent English who had a very rounded knowledge on all the sites we saw and who gave insightful explanations to all of our question. The plan presented to us for the day was thorough and included all of our resqests. Marie was a pleasure to be with and made our day a wonderful experience, we can only highly recommend her. Thank you again Mari. Kim and Ben.


Thank you Kim and Ben for having me. You were very kind and respectful to me and local Japanese. It was very pleasant to re-discover the good points of Japanese culture with you, as well as talking randomly about social issues, history and customs. Your smile was contagious and made everyone around happy. I would never forget what we experienced in Nara. I would be a pleasure to see you again in the future. Thank you so much again for the great day! Mari

“ Nicely planned tour, lots of highlights in Kyoto ”

Good experience with Mari, the tour was planned well. Just sometimes the communication was a little bit hard. All in all a good time


Thank you for your comment, Robert. I am happy to know you had a good time in Kyoto. Hope you have safely gone back to Germany. I am looking forward to seeing you in the future!

“ She was awesome ”

Mari was very caring and friendly. She taught me where to get the one day passes. We saw the tourist areas and non tourist areas. My kids and I did food samples. She was great. My kids and I loved her energy and vibe about her.


Thank you for joing my tour. You and your kids are both very respectful to me and the Japanese manners. I was happy to guide you all in Osaka. I hope we will see you again in the future when your baby grows up and becomes interested in Japanese anime. :)

“ Morning in Osaka ”

Our party of four met Mari for a personal tour. While Mari was good at ensuring that we saw the very best of the Cherry Blossoms, we were disappointed with her overall lack of knowledge for our questions about Japanese culture and what we were viewing.
