I had been working as an English-speaking taxi driver in Kyoto for about 4 years from March 2012 to May 2016. During that time I guided many visitors from abroad around Kyoto. In June 2016 I decided to quit working as a taxi driver and become a self-employed English tour guide. As I'm a licensed English tour guide and a professional driver, I can guide visitors from abroad around Kyoto, Nara, and other places in my car. 6 passengers maximum. English guiding is 4,000 yen/hour. No extra charge for carfare. As I'm not a taxi driver, I cannot receive any money for carfare. I will take you anywhere you like in my car mainly in the Kansai Region. read more

“ Nara and Kyoto ”

Our tour of Nara was very disappointing. Mitzuyki is a very nice man, but he did not seem to have experience or extensive knowledge about the sights of Nara. He had very little information or knowledge to share with us about the history or culture of Japan and the sights we visited. We relied on our guidebook more than we would have wanted to. When we returned to Kyoto from Nara, Mitsuyuki seemed more knowledgable of the city and its sights. We enjoyed our visit to Roanjii Temple tremendously where he was able to provide valuable information. Although we were aware that we would pay for tolls and admission tickets, we were surprised by the amount. The tolls and parking were an additional $50. It might be a good idea to provide this information to your clients in advance.
