Overview

Kyoto has many legends. I'd like to show you a couple of Shrines. Abeno Seimei, a yin-yang master, told pros and cons of official functions of Imperial Court. Wake-no-Kiyomaro was saved by wild boars, so the divine messenger of the Goo shrine is a boar. Near Gion area, there are some temples that have the boundary between life and afterlife. I'd like to show you those temples.

What to Expect

You know many legends such as Abeno Seimei, Wake-no-Kiyomaro, and Sugawara-no-Michizane. You kow the answers about next questions.
・Why was Wake-no-Kiyomari attacked by an assassin?
・Why do Japanese viisit Tenmangu shrine?
・Why do Japanese hold Bon Festival (Buddhist event)?
・What is the unique of Yasui Shrine?
and the like.

Please join my tour! Thank you.

“ Very unconcerned ”

When we first me Hideo the first thing he did was ask for $64 for transport from his house .. I said no and he said ok Did not like that thought it was rude Wherever we want I felt he did not know where we were going He never gave info unless asked and several times did not know answer and never looked up in google as several other guides did I felt he was rude by constantly walking ahead of us and not seeming to care His English was not very good On a level of 1-10 I would give him a 2 I would not recommend him to anyone Trip to Nikko was great in spite of him I just can’t imagine how much better it could of been if we had a good guide like several of our other guides at triplelights

“ Well prepared , knowledgable, and charming guide! ”

We were fortunate to have Hideo show us around the key sights of Kyoto. He organised the day very well to meet our requests , took us to a great lunch venue, and provided some great insights into everything we saw. Hideo has a pleasant and kindly manner and we appreciated his well structured tour. He also provided excellent tips for self touring on other days. Well done to Hideo!

“ 2 wonderful days ”

We really enjoyed our time with Hideo. He was very knowledgeable, took us to great places and got us back to our ship with time to spare. He took us to excellent restaurants so that we could try delicious local foods. I would definitely recommend him.
