“ Samurai trail ”

I don’t think we would have appreciated Kyoto without Masaki. He really helped us understand the history and the importance of Kyoto to the rest of Japan. Besides being very informative, he was extremely flexible and caring We were a rough crowd of five different personalities and ages from the United States and he was able to keep our attention and make sure that we got what we needed from the trip. If there was a downside at all, it would be that we spent a lot of time on buses and trains. I don’t know if the transportation we took wasn’t the best option available, But it seems like it would’ve been less wear and tear had we been in a van.

“ Outstanding tour of Kyoto ”

I simply can not say enough about Masaki and his skill as a tour guide. Not in a million years would we had been able to see so many beautiful sights in Kyoto without his ability to move us from place to place, purchasing entry tickets without hassle but also knowing the fastest ways in & out plus the timing of our arrivals & exits were spot on. Masaki & Steve had quite a long conversation about the Samari rock garden & breathing that we have continued to reflect upon. We also did some off the beaten path places that I loved but the absolute topper on Masaki’s resume was after the tour when I received 100 photos he took of us in Kyoto with his own camera. And may I say they are not only excellent photos but ones that I will treasure forever. I’m grateful for his touring skills & leadi... read more

“ Hiroshima Day Tour ”

Masaki was Awesome! He really lets us absorb and learn so much culture from our day in Hiroshima and Miyajima. My family really loved our time with Masaki and he was very enjoyable and easy to work with. Thanks Masaki for an enjoyable time!

Masaki:

Hi Trisha, Thank you for a wonderful review. Yes, it was a great day for me, too. I had some first experiences. Relaxed time and leisurely tours made me forget the time passing. Thank you again for sharing precious time with your family. Good luck in Japan!! Masaki

“ Gion and Philosophers Walk Kyoto tour ”

Masaki was a very helpful guide. Even before we started the tour with him, he gave us directions to get to Kyoto (as we were coming in on train) and helped me source a wheelchair for my Mum who needed it after she had a fall the day after she landed. He made the whole thing easier. I am glad we had him. He also provided in depth info about Kyoto through information that he put together in a booklet to make it more meaningful. And took heaps of photos of us. Thank you Masaki.

Masaki:

Hi Kirandeep, Thank you for a nice message. Very happy that you enjoyed Kyoto tour. Now you have already come back home. Hope your mother's recovery. Please say hello to all the members.
