“ A bit of a difficult day in Kyoto ”

Ai did a wonderful job. She took us to the Aquarium to meet the needs of the children. They loved this, but then one of the grandchildren became ill. Ai just worked it out, getting him to a hospital. As the doctor had no English, she stayed there to help which was much appreciated. The rest of us coped. We found a cab and off to kysiomuru dera. She helped us out with a difficult day. Thank you so much. Lyn Hodgson

Ai:

Thank you so much for having me. Yes, we had an enjoyable moment at Aquarium to see Dolphin Show and salamanders. I was very happy that your granddaughter looked excited and even said hello to dolphins. lol I hope your grandson will brag about his hospitalized experience at his birthday party next month with hilarious pics!(I wish I could follow the rest of your family as well.) Hope to see all of you again the next time you come back to Japan for watching Rugby World Cup, Tokyo Olympics, or studying at Kyoto University. See you later, alligator!(・ω・)ノ your friend & your guide, Ai

“ Superb tour of Kyoto highlights ”

Thanks to Ai, we had an unforgettable day at the Bamboo Forest, Kiyomizu-dera and other sites of interest along the way. Ai is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about showing visitors around Kyoto. We had fun chatting with her as we made our way from place to place. She also took and shared with us many photos and made sure we took breaks whenever we needed them. Terrific guide!

Ai:

Thanks! Davina and her husband not only came on time, but also they were smart, kind, energetic, and curious. Therefore, it was my pleasure to exploring my hometown, Kyoto, with such a nice couple. It was a hot day, for both in temperature and our passion! I will never forget about a "bodybag lady" talk! lol Hope to see you again in the States and/or in Japan! Thank you very much once again.( ´∀`)/ Your guide & your friend, Ai

“ Fushimi Inari Shrine, Bamboo Forest and the Shosei-En Garden ”

We had a wonderful day with Ai as we toured beautiful Kyoto. Climbing the steps of the impressive Inari Shrine, walking through the quiet of the Bamboo Forest and basking in the beauty of the Shosei-En Garden in the rain, Ai was a fun and interesting guide. Ai negotiated prices, got us into the Shosei-en Garden just before closing, and interpreted for our party. Thank you Ai for a wonderful day!

Ai:

Thanks for having me. It was my pleasure to guide such a wonderful parents with a nice daughter around my age. Although it was raining, you kindly allowed me to use a taxi, which was a prime reason for arriving Shoseien Garden on time. I appreciate your cooperation. (Please see my blog for the garden's pictures.) I hope you will come back to Japan with everybody, including an elder brother, who couldn't make it this time. Thank you very much once again. your guide & your friend, Ai
