“ We love Rio! Amazing host, very warm and welcoming! ”

We love Rio! He did a wonderful job showing us around Kyoto. He really took the time to explain everything and teach us more about the Japanese culture. We started the day off as strangers and towards the end of the day Rio became a good friend! Rio was so kind to help us order dinner at a restaurant nearby. This was a typical local spot with no English menu. Rio helped us order all the yummy things and we ate like kings that night, all thanks to him! Thank you Rio for showing us your home country! All of us really enjoyed it and will treasure this memorable day!


Thank you so much! I also enjoyed so much with you. Next time also please contact me when you come here. Arigatou!
