“ Best Guide! Personal service in and around Kyoto ”

With no local language skills and short time to see so much, we are so glad we found Kazu online! Excellent English! On time meeting at our hotel, with personal stories and notes about the chosen sites, the culture difference between temples and shrines and a bit about living in Kyoto. (also pictures on his tablet) Great to get some history and culture ahead and during day (he gave us details before we started and on the trains & busses, not to loos any time) He is so knowledgable and it's obvious he loves his job. With good prior correspondence, he helped us choose between so many wonderful sights (we choose the bigger, busier shrines & temples, further from our hotel where we needed more guidance. we were even able to make a change during our day when we asked about a beautiful Bamboo... read more

“ Kyoto Highlights ”

We spent our first full day in Kyoto with Kazuhiko for a Kyoto highlight tour. We were staying at an Airbnb in the Higashiyama neighborhood, but we ended up meeting Kazu at a hotel near Kyoto station as it was an easier meeting place. We used public transportation to go to Fushimi Inari Shrine, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest and Monkey Park, Nishiki Market, Gion District (and spotted some geiko and maiko!). We had seven in our group, including our children (ages 5, 8, 10) and my parents. Kazu was very flexible with us as we altered our plans a bit based on everyone's interests, physical ability and the heat (it was 100 degrees). We added the monkey park to the itinerary while we were in Arashiyama, which required about a 20 minute walk up the mountain to the park (my parents stayed in the t... read more

Kazuhiko:

Dear Ms.Andrea I appreciate your feedback. I’m very pleased that your nice family enjoyed their tour. I had great time as well showing your nice family around Kyoto. I'm sorry that I had made you walk a lot, and I'm sorry that I walked fast. Moreover, I'm sorry that I did not use a subway, though you had 1-day subway pass. Because, there are only 2 subway lines in Kyoto. I have guided many foreign tourists for several years. However,that was the first time I had guided guests in a record-braking hottest day, and that was the first time I had gone to Monkey park 4 times in a month. Therefore, I could not guide you enough, though I had tried to do my best, because I was also slight tired, Sorry!! I sincerely hope this experience was memorable. Moreover, I sincerely hope ... read more

“ Efficient, professional guide ”

Kazu is a very efficient and professional guide. He took care of my family of 11 in Kyoto as part of a shore excursion from Maizuru port. Correspondence with him prior to the trip was a breeze and he replied promptly to my queries. We appreciate his being organized, knowledgeable, and flexible as we visited must-see places in Kyoto. Overall, a very enjoyable and memorable trip! Thanks Kazu!
