Kenji was very helpful and he came really prepared. He listened to all our requests for our customized tour and gave us quite a memorable day! :) He also assisted us in procuring Japanese souvenirs/collectibles that we really want to bring home. He even went beyond and gave us helpful information about some other places we want to see but cannot fit into our day anymore. We highly recommend Kenji to anyone who needs a guide in this area. :)

Dear Jingle Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm very happy to have been able to help you and your nice family enjoy at each destination. It was one of the most memorable thing for me that your two daughters both could be surprisingly selected from audience and experience sword fighting lesson at Kyoto Studio Park. As you know Japan has lots of sightseeing spots and attractions Please contact me any time if you have any other chance to visit Japan. Thanks, Kenji

We very much enjoyed our time with Kenji. We especially appeciated his written summary of Japanese history which helped put our visits into perspective. And his understanding of history, which was greater than other guides we have used, made each site more meaningful. He was very flexible and focused on sites most meaningful to us. He also took us to lunch at a wonderful traditional Japanese restaurant. I would strongly recommend Kenji if you want to see and understand Kyoto.

Rod, Thank you for your compliment. It was my great pleasure to have guided you and your family. Your comments encourage me to guide next guests with confidence. As Kyoto has various spots to visit and attractions to enjoy in each season, I expect your next visit in future. Best regards, Kenji
