In case of the day when Kaboku or Horino memorial museum are closed, we exchange the itinerary a little. Pleas ask in advance.
One of my visitors from abroad said to me, " If you want to know the culture of the country, tasting and learning about the food is the best way".
Nishiki food market is called the kitchen of Kyoto's citizens. Walking through the market with a guide, having the food explained and trying samples will be much more interesting than visiting the market alone!
In addition, this tour takes you to a traditional tea shop where you can enjoy learning how to make Japanese tea usually drunk at home, as well as to a traditional Kyoto house which used to be a sake brewery.
If you are more interested in a traditional tea ceremony than enjoying tea at a tea shop, you can change the itinerary from the tea shop to a tea ceremony, though an additional charge is required.
Let's enjoy a 4 hour food culture encounter!!
Tomoko was the perfect guide for our visit to Kyoto. She met us at the Port in Osaka and we made our way by train to Kyoto. We managed to visit, Inari Fushimi, Golden Temple, Bamboo Forest and Gion in one day. She took us to a fantastic small local restaurant for an authentic Japanese meal, sooo good. Tomoko has so much patience and was very knowledgeable with her information and history. My husband was very impressed, as he has a knee injury and sometimes struggles to get around, Tomoko made the perfect itinerary to suit his mobility, this was much appreciated. We experienced local trains and taxis and everyday life in the community. She even accompanied us back on time to the Terminal Port. We loved our tour with Tomoko and told all our ship friends about our wonderful experience. Thank you Tomoko.
Tomoko-san took all the worry and trouble away from what could have been a complicated and stressful day. She organized visits to many different locations and helped with the most convenient way to get from one place to another. Additionally it was very interesting hearing her stories and descriptions of the places we visited.
Tomoko was an excellent tour guide. She always has a smile and a wonderful attitude throughout the entire day and some of our days were long. She definitely knows her way around the cities and all the trains, buses, subways etc. You will have a great time and she knows fabulous places to eat the local specialties in each city without breaking the bank. You will be very happy with her guide services.
Very good tour where I saw all the highlights of Kyoto and a couple of hidden pearls which I appreciated very much. Very good Japanese lunch in a small, non touristic restaurant. Tomoko was also very helpful with information reg. restaurants and upcoming events.
We had a wonderful custom day tour with Tomoko. She was very knowledgable, friendly and flexible. We would recommens her services.
