“ Super day in Kyoto with Yasuo ”

Yasuo was an excellent tour guide. With an experienced local guide like Yasuo, we were able to see more sights than if we had toured Kyoto on our own...with the additional benefit of Yasuo’s insights about the places we visited. We also had an excellent lunch at a cool restaurant that we would have never found on our own. Also, Yasuo was very responsive to questions prior to our tour date. Feel comfortable that you will have a great tour experience with Yasuo.


Mr Don Wind Thank you very much for your kind compliment. I hope you have had and will have a good impression on Japan. Please continue your pleasant trip from now on. I hope we will meet again on your future trips. Thank you. Yasuo

“ Excellent. Highly recommended. ”

We spent the day with Yasuo on our day trip from Osaka to Kyoto. We had a really fantastic day with him, he was great company, friendly and extremely knowledgeable of all the places we visited. He also took us to a really nice place for lunch which we really enjoyed. We spent 10 days in Japan and this was by far the best day. If you are looking for a punctual, friendly guide with Good English then Yasuo is a great choice.
