“ Knowledgeable, kind and patient Tour Guide we’re luckily had. ”

We’re very happy to have Ms. Miwako as our tour guide on November 11 2019. She is very knowledgeable about Nara and its attractions. Best, she knows how to accommodate our interests. She’s kind, patient; she answered our questions thouroughly. After a day with her, we feel like we had a new friend. We are sure will recommend her to my friends or family members if they have a chance to visit Nara . Thank so much, Ms. Miwako, for you good service, we have had really good time with you, ❤️😀🌹 Nga Doan and Family,

Miwako:

Dear Ms Nga and her family Thank you so much for joining my tour and your heart-warmed review. I am very happy to have such lovely guests as all of you. I have the same feeling as you have. I feel like having important friends. All of your kindness have warmed my heart. Also, thank you so much for treating me persimmon juice and sweet Mochi as a souvenir. I had Mochi with my husband. I hope you will have a nice trip in Nara on the rest days. Horyuji temple, Yakushiji temple, Toshodaiji temple, Asuka village, Mt Yoshino in Nara are worth visiting. Today I guided my guests in Kyoto. Tenryuji temple and Kinkakuji have slight colored leaves. When you visit Kyoto, you will enjoy beautiful colored leaves. Thank you so much again. Please enjoy Japan. Be... read more

“ Miwako a.k.a. Olive was fantastic! ”

Miwako met us at our hotel with a sign and was so thoughtful about our trip. We only had about 6 hours, so she had carefully planned out our agenda so we could maximize our time in Osaka. She had a great suggestion to get a weekend/holiday subway pass and that saved us thousands of yen. She really knew the history of the area and was so kind to me and my family. There were several times when she talked to the merchants for us and secured better deals than we would have on our own. Again, such a great day in Osaka with a wonderful guide!

Miwako:

Dear Ms. Ambre Thank you so much for having taking part in my tour and showing a great interest in Osaka. Also, thank you so much for your sweet compliment. I'm reminiscing you, your mother, friend and son. All of you are so lovely and kind not only to me but also other foreign visitors and shop and restaurant clerks. When we meet up, you came to me in full smile and took pictures with me. At the moment I was so happy to be blessed with such lovely guests as you. I'm impressed with your son's knowledge about Japanese history as well. I'm glad to know you enjoyed the tour and soul food in Osaka. Next time you will try Kushikatsu, which are deep-fried skewers. I hope I will meet you again. Thank you so much again for giving me a wonderful opportunity to have guided you. Fr... read more
