“ Excellent guide and interpreter. ”

I highly recommend Mac as a guide and translator. We spent two days with Mac who very efficiently handled transportation and time schedules for us. After describing what we wanted to see and do in Kyoto, Mac came back with detailed itineraries, explaining what was possible to accomplish within our time frame, and then was flexible with our unexpected schedule changes. Most wonderfully for us, he kindly contacted a second cousin whom I had never met and translated Japanese to English and back again during our meetings. This meant so much for us and was a highlight of our time in Japan. Thank you, Mac!

MAKOTO:

Dear Grace, Thanks so much for the nice review comments. I have not learned Buddhism seriously before but this time I have learned much especially about the human bond,and the importance. I hope that your relationship with your second cousin and her family to be continued in the future including your children. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide. I really enjoyed the conversation and visit of Arashiyama with you. Mac

We really enjoyed our day with Makoto. We would thoroughly recommend him. He was prompt, well prepared, well organised, helpful, friendly, flexible, very knowledgeable and speaks good English. He was also great company. We could not fault him!

MAKOTO:

Dear Martin, Thanks for your nice review comments and I am so glad that you have enjoyed the tour. I have enjoyed very much being with you and guide the spots in Kyoto. There was unexpected surprise at Arashiyama, where autumn festival is being prepared. We could take pictures with many ladies costumed for the festival. That was really surprise to me and I enjoyed the atmosphere of the festival. Thank you very much for your choosing me of your guide. MAKOTO

“ Koya-San- Historic/beautiful and what Tranquil. ”

We spent a full day with Makoto (Mac). He got to our hotel for pickup early as we needed to get a very useful KOYA-San Heritage Pass at the station prior to the touring. It was a great way to get the transportation needed as well as discounted entrances to our sites. Good value and definitely saved us money. As far as the tour, we saw what we had wanted to do, lead by a mature, very professional and pleasant guide. He used the time we had efficiently and he got us to every locale in an very timely manner. He knew what the sites and areas had to offer and explained them to us. His command of English was superb and there was never a communication problem. We had a very good traditional lunch near the next site we were to visit and when it came time to leave, we were escorted back to our ... read more

“ Excellent tour with Makoto ”

We spent a day with Mak in Kyoto yesterday visiting Sanjyusansendo Temple, Nijo Castle, Kinkkuji Temple and Fusimi Inari Shrine. Mak is fantastic – friendly and helpful and full of insights. What was I particularly impressed by was that he brought some useful background charts of Japanese history which were very helpful as we visited 800 years of buildings in a day. I would thoroughly recommend Mak to other visitors to Kyoto.

MAKOTO:

Dear Hamish. Thanks for your prompt review and nice comment. I am so glad that you have enjoyed the tour. I also enjoyed being with you and the conversation as I have so much good memory in England. This is my "Ikigai" to support the guests from foriegn countries and receive good feed back. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide and we will see again when you bring your family to Japan.
