“ Enjoyable company ”

My daughter and I spent 2 lovely days with Tomoe. She is thoughtful, detail oriented and very sweet. We can’t asked for a better tour guide. Thank you so much Tomoe-San Hope to see you very soon 🥰


Dear Angelica, Thank you very much for your warmhearted review! I'm very happy to start 2020 with such nice people like you. (As I wrote you, and told you, the first three days of the New Year's Holiday are the very special days for Japanese people, and I'm very glad that I was able to spend such wonderful time with you on those days.) You are so nice and inspired me a lot as a woman, as a wife and as a mother! Please come to Kyoto again! I miss you a lot. Thank you very much for booking me as your guide! TOMOE

“ Excellent tour ”

Tomoe did an excellent job. Not only got us to the planned sightseeing locations and provided insightful information but also took the time and effort to help with some train arrangements. She is a very personable person and enjoyed visiting with her as much as seeing the sights. She only left us when we were securely on the train back to our hotel. As an aside, Nara is a great city to visit.


Dear Ron, Thank you very much for your warmhearted review. I'm glad that you enjoyed Nara on such a nice day in winter. I enjoyed talking with you and your sons, too. Thank you so much for finding me and giving me such a wonderful encounter! There are more nice places to visit in Kyoto. I hope that you will come to Kyoto again. TOMOE

“ Osaka Kuromon Market ”

We enjoyed our tour. Tomoe is a fanstastic guide! Friendly, patient and will go out of her way to make the tour enjoyable and fun. She knows our dietary restriction and that she helps with the food selection. We would certainly like to have more tours with Tomoe in the future should we be in Kansai again. To Tomoe - A very big thank you and our best wishes for you and your family for 2020!


Dear Zainol, Thank you very much for your warmhearted review. I had a very good time with you and your wife in Osaka. I was impressed because you have studied a lot and know a lot about Japan which is a foreign country for you. I hope that I can share time with you and your wife again. TOMOE

Tomoe is a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and kind, she took us to all the sites we wanted to visit and gave us many insights. I would recommend her services 100%.

I really want to see you again. I do hope that you will come to Kyoto and let me see you and your nice family again. Thank you so much for finding me and booking me as your guide. I miss all of you!

“ Day Visit to Kyoto - 25 November 2019 ”

We docked at Kobe cruise port on 25 November 2019 and then took the Shinkansen to Kyoto. Prior to arriving, Tomoe had been very patient with our enquiries and was very informative with instructions as to how best to get to Kyoto by public transport. We also discussed many options of places to visit in Kyoto especially to see the temple/gardens with spectacular autumn colours. Tomoe helped us achieve this major aim of visiting Kyoto and took us to the best spots for the excellent autumn views. We found Tomoe to be very fluent in English and her patience with our endless enquiries before and during the visit was greatly appreciated. Tomoe is highly recommended as a tour guide and her very pleasant demeanour made our Kyoto day trip a memorable one.


Dear Anne, Thank you very much for such a warmhearted review! We had exchanged so many mails before the tour to have the marvelous view of colored maple leaves during the day and at night, and thanks to you, I could also enjoy the brilliant view of the best night, which I will never forget. (You sent me your mail of inquiry and booked me earlier, and that is why I accept the night tour, which I usually don't accept.) I wish I could have spent more time with you...I hope that you will come back to Kyoto and I can see you again. Thank you so much for finding me and booking me as your guide. TOMOE
