Overview

San- in District (Tottori and Shimane prefectures) is rich with virgin nature, historic sites, newly established facilities and marine activities. This tour is designed for visitors who have interests in traditional Japanese culture in the countryside. My special recommendation is Adachi Museum and Matsue Castle.

What to Expect

★ You can see the ultimate and enchanting Japanese garden at Adachi Museum. The garden has been ranked as No. 1 Japanese garden by an American garden magazine.
★ You can explore various historic spots in Matsue City which is also called "small Kyoto".
★ You can experience a real tea ceremony at a historic tea house built 200 years ago.

“ The Director of an incredible day ”

Before arriving Mr. Shun very communicative and made an effort to learn our preferences, so we could maximize our day in Kyoto. He picked up at Kobe Cruise Terminal and travel with us to Kioto. On the way he handed a printed itinerary to every person as well as a timeline with the history of Japan with the important sites that we were going to visit. Mr. Shun walks fast and was tireless, took us to the best places, told us funny stories and interesting facts about Japan culture, history and his own life in Japan. We learned a lot by using different means of transportation. We spent 10 wonderful hours with Mr. Shun. An unforgettable detail, Mr. Shun received us with a bag of Japan sweets. We recommend him 100%, and we definitely will hire him again, he also tours others cities in Japan.

“ Kyoto Customized Private Tour ”

My friend and I booked a 6 hour custom private tour to specifically visit the Sagano bamboo forest in Arashiyama, Tenryu-ji Temple, and the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. Shun met us at our hotel and we made our way to each spot via the train. At the Sagano bamboo forest, he mentioned that there was an option to see Okochi Denjiro's (famous past silent film actor private villa. We decided to do that and the views were great! The experience also included matcha tea overlooking the bamboo forest. Overall, it was super helpful to have a professional guide navigate the way, which in turn, creates a stress free experience. I highly recommend Shun. Prior to the tour, we communicated through email and he was very accommodating. He also took great pictures for us and picked out a good lunch spot. The tour was definitely worth it!

“ Customized tour to kyoto and nara ”

Our trip to osaka, kyoto and nara was made memorable by Shun-san. He was very accomodating with all our requests... from meeting us at a place in osaka so we wouldnt get lost to arranging our itinerary to fit all the places that we want to visit in kyoto and nara for 2 days. Happy and grateful to have him as our guide. We wouldnt have covered a lot of places in 2 days without him... He was also very knowlegable about the places we visited and constantly provides us with great insights on japanese culture and language... hope to get him as our guide again on our next visit to Japan. :)
