“ great experience! ”

Mitsuyuki gave us a great day. He let us choose the places we wanted to visit and was very accommodating when my wife made impromptu changes. His English language skill was surprisingly good. He was knowledgeable and personable and we were very comfortable to share our day with him. I think we were fortunate to find him! At the end of the day I was unable to find the lens cap for my camera and surmised that I must have left it in his mini van. I did not contact him about it ( our schedule was tight and lens caps are inexpensive to replace) but I was truly surprised to learn the following day that he had discovered it and made a special trip back to return it to our hotel front desk staff!! That's superior service!!! Thanks Mitsuyuki!!!

“ Great ways to see Kyoto in a short time ”

Mr. Mitsuyuki was pleasant and on time picking us up. It rained all day when we toured Kyoto so it was great having him drive us around instead of taking the subway. In one day, we went to the Golden Pavilion, Bamboo garden, Tenryuji Temple, Gion, and Nara. We couldn't habe done that much on our own. Thank you Mr. Mitsuyuki for showing us Kyoto.

“ Kyoto by Day ”

Thanks to Mitsuyuki for making our trip to Kyoto memorable and easy breezy! It was raining hard and I couldn’t imagine we had to ride the subway and walk to different tourist destinations if we didn’t book him. Thanks Mitsuyuki, we had a great time! We’ll be back for more soon! We’re sorry if we got tired at the end. 😁👍🏻 🇯🇵
