“ Great 2 days in Kyoto ”

Kenji was an excellent guide and although some sights were closed on New Years eve we still had a great time and ate some great food.

Kenji:

Dear Johan, Thank you for your great review. I could show you off the beaten path sights in addtion to popular tourist spots as you requested. So we could luckily enjoy snow-covered scenes with a welcoming snowman in rural area of Kyoto which are very rare scenes in its central area. I'm very glad that you liked some typical Japanese food for lunch. I look forward to next your visit to Japan. Regards, Kenji

“ Great Insight into Osaka and flexible ”

Kenji was a great tour guide. He explained the history and culture of Osaka to us and was able to amend the tour where and when needed. Kenji also helped us to sort out our JR pass for our travel in Japan and was a great help. Kenji took us to this awesome Sushi train restaurant where no one spoke English so we would not have been able to go if it was not for Kenji. Overall a great experience! Thank You Kenji

Kenji:

Dear Vash-san, Thank you for your wonderful review of my guide tour. I'm really glad to hear that you could enjoy my tour and reasonable and tasty revolving sushi sushi with sophisticated system. As we had to skip to visit a famous shrine due to incredibly long queue of people on new year holiday I will guide and explain you more about Shinto and other Japanese culture in next time. I look forward to your next chance to visit to Japan, especially to Kyoto (my hometown) ! Regards, Kenji

“ Trip to see Hemiji Castle (1) Himeji Castle + Engyoji-temple on Mt. Shoshazan ”

We booked trip with Kenji for half a day when our cruise ship arrived in Kobe. I initially asked Kenji for a tour to Nara but at the last minute we decided that we would rather see Himeji Castle. I asked him to change itinerary at the last minute. He was very positive about the change and suggested to go to see additionally Engyoji-temple on Mt. Shoshazan that I did not even know about. Our trip was great! We really enjoyed beautiful temple and fall colors on Mr. Shohazan. Kenji met us exactly on time at the ship terminal. The trip was well planned, so we were able to see both places in very short period. Kenji provided a lot of information about the sites. Answered al our questions. We really enjoyed conversations about history of Japan and learned a lot from him. Thanks Kenji! Highly rec... read more
