Misaki is a very warm and considerate guide. Most importantly, he provided us with very useful information which greatly enhanced our time with him
I simply can not say enough about Masaki and his skill as a tour guide. Not in a million years would we had been able to see so many beautiful sights in Kyoto without his ability to move us from place to place, purchasing entry tickets without hassle but also knowing the fastest ways in & out plus the timing of our arrivals & exits were spot on. Masaki & Steve had quite a long conversation about the Samari rock garden & breathing that we have continued to reflect upon. We also did some off the beaten path places that I loved but the absolute topper on Masaki’s resume was after the tour when I received 100 photos he took of us in Kyoto with his own camera. And may I say they are not only excellent photos but ones that I will treasure forever. I’m grateful for his touring skills & leadi... read more
Hi Kelly, How are you? Is everything going on well? Thank you for sending me a review. Your review encourages me to work hard and continue this job. It is a wonderful thing that you have a good memory in Kyoto. Please visit me again. Next time I take you in the norther part of Kyoto. See you. Masaki
Masaki was Awesome! He really lets us absorb and learn so much culture from our day in Hiroshima and Miyajima. My family really loved our time with Masaki and he was very enjoyable and easy to work with. Thanks Masaki for an enjoyable time!
Hi Trisha, Thank you for a wonderful review. Yes, it was a great day for me, too. I had some first experiences. Relaxed time and leisurely tours made me forget the time passing. Thank you again for sharing precious time with your family. Good luck in Japan!! Masaki
Masaki was a very helpful guide. Even before we started the tour with him, he gave us directions to get to Kyoto (as we were coming in on train) and helped me source a wheelchair for my Mum who needed it after she had a fall the day after she landed. He made the whole thing easier. I am glad we had him. He also provided in depth info about Kyoto through information that he put together in a booklet to make it more meaningful. And took heaps of photos of us. Thank you Masaki.
Hi Kirandeep, Thank you for a nice message. Very happy that you enjoyed Kyoto tour. Now you have already come back home. Hope your mother's recovery. Please say hello to all the members.
We experienced a most relaxing yet educational day with Masaki, touring the sites of Uji, home of matcha. Because my husband’s mobility and energy was compromised, Masaki chose this outing for its length and flat terrain, plus he is very atuned to the history there. He was most patient with our challenges yet delivered a wonderful tour.
