“ Great experience! ”

We had a great experience with Makoto-san who was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout our trip despite it being a 38C day. Will definitely recommend to anyone planning a trip around Kyoto!

MAKOTO:

Dear Ling-san, Thanks for your sending prompt review message. Yes it was so hot yesterday, but I really enjoyed guiding Kyoto for you as you have keen interest on the culture and history of Japan. Still hot days will continue but please enjoy Japan and have a nice trip back to U.K. thanks for your choosing me of your guide this time. MAKOTO

“ A wonderful day in Kyoto ”

We didn't contact Mac until two days before we wanted a tour of Kyoto. He responded quickly and suggested a wonderful itinerary. He arrived early at our hotel and gave us an introduction to the activities of the day. We went to three sites, Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji, and Nijo Castle. We would not have been able to visit these places easily on our own as several different train lines were used. He took us to a wonderful restaurant on the top floor of a department store, somewhere we would not have found ourselves. Mac spoke excellent English and was knowledgeable about the historical backgrounds of the places we visited. The quality of our trip to Kyoto was greatly enhanced because of Mac. I highly recommend him as a guide!

MAKOTO:

Dear Summer, Thamk you very much for the nice review comments. I am so glad that you have enjoyed the tour. I also enjoyed being with you and guide you very much. It turned to be very very hot in Japan after your tour and I have recognized that we had a nice wheather in our tour. Please have a nice trip back to the U.S. and thank you for your choosing me of your guide this time. MAKOTO

“ Relaxed day in Nara Park with Mac! ”

Mac was an awesome guide for our day tour of Nara! He arranged a great itinerary coving the main sites of the park and even have us a printout with a map and some general history of Japan before we started the tour. We had an issue finding him when we got to Nara but it was no big deal. His English was perfect and he was quite friendly, and we would definitely recommend him for a day trip around Nara

MAKOTO:

Dear Juan Thank you for yoir nice review comments. I am so glad that you have enjoyed the tour and Nara. I also enjoyed very much being with you in the tour as you shows much interest on Japanese history and culture. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide. MAKOTO

“ Nara park and temples from a local ”

Excellent tour guide. He greeted us at the train station and helped us get a bus to the park. Taught us many things about local culture and even some basic Japanese phrases. Makoto lives in Nara so he knew the city like the back of his hand and took us through many beautiful roads and shops that we would not have known of. We were a family of 15 and he was very calm and patient the whole time. We were in Japan for almost 3 weeks and this tour was the favorite of many of us. Highly recommend the city and the tour guide!

MAKOTO:

Dear Ana, Thank you very much for your nice review comments. I am so happy that you have enjoyed the tour and Nara. You have nice and big family, and I also enjoyed much being with you.Thanks again for yoir choosing me of your guide. I hope that you visit Japan again someday. MAKOTO

“ Kyoto highlights in a day - Nijo Castle, Imperial Palace, Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion),Ryoan-ji & Ninna-ji ”

Makoto is a very well-organised guide who gave us an excellent insight into Kyoto. Having worked in the US and the UK he speaks excellent English and has a very easy-going manner which made his introduction to Japanese history through our visits to Nijo and the Imperial Palace very easy to follow. Unlike some guides who can give too much detail Makoto pitched it just right and left us with some excellent print-outs to study later. Before our trip I had expressed an interest in Samurai sword making and he would have been prepared to arrange a factory visit, although this proved impractical in the timescale of our visit. Nonetheless, on the day he gave us an superb print-out showing the production process which must have taken some considerable effort. Just one example of the efforts Mak i... read more

MAKOTO:
