“ Energetic, Informative and Fun ”

Had a wonderful tour in Nara. Tomoe took us to all the famous sites one can possibly cover in one day, first on the train from Kyoto, then lots of walking, and finally taxis in Nara as necessary or when I needed to take a break (not to mention to save precious time). Tomoe gave us a wonderful overview of the local history, the Shinto traditions and other important cultural notes. She also patiently answered all our questions. In sum, Tomoe made us feel right at home while providing us a rich experience.


Dear Ervin and Mina Thank you for a good review. Thanks to your pushing yourselves, we were able to have a good time even there are some upslopes and stairs. You two are so sweet and kind, which warmed my heart though it was cold outside. I hope you did a good shopping in Tokyo and safe trip home. Arigato Mimmy(^o^)
