“ Tour of Osaka & Kyoto ”

We had a great time with Shin. He was very thoughtful, considerate of our time and was very knowledgeable. He gave us a background on each of the site was saw. I would highly recommend Shin to anyone that is looking for a tour guide.

“ Great tour of Kamakura with Shin! ”

I did a full-day tour of Kamakura with Shin. From the minute I reached out he was very responsive and helpful in planning the day. Even with a 13-hour time difference, I never had to wait more than a few hours for a response to an email. Shin was very flexible in planning the itinerary and made some helpful suggestions. He sent me an illustrated itinerary and some information ahead of the tour. He arrived at my hotel right on time. He's very knowledgeable and open and easy to talk to and I enjoyed getting to know him. We had a few transportation challenges getting from place to place, but we still managed to not only see everything we planned - we had a little extra time. Instead of sticking with the plan and just going back to Tokyo, Shin suggested we use the time to visit another shrine ... read more

“ Wonderful day in Kyoto ”

Our family had a wonderful tour of Kyoto with Mr. Shin. He is an excellent tour guide. He fetched us in our hotel in Osaka and brought us back to Osaka after the tour in Kyoto. He gave us details of our tour right after booking, then gave us update a month and then, a week before our arrival in Japan. Even with other places we visited, we would just ask him thru ******* for directions and he answered promptly.

SHIN:

Hello Ema san. Thank you very much for your warm comment. I feel so happy your family had a wonderful time in Kyoto. I think you could enjoy two places, Osaka and Kyoto. These towns are closer but having a different colors with gourmet and culture. Our tour schedule was packed with plenty of activities. But I would appreciate we could complete all plans owing to your great cooperation. In particular I remember your beautiful Kimono dress style and memorable scene of walking down the Nishiki street in the evening. I really hope this is one of the great moments on your life. Thank you and maraming salamat ! SHIN

“ Shin is a MUST for your trip to Japan! Best thing you can do! ”

If you're going to Japan, Shin is a must hire! Shin is THE BEST! From the start, he was so easy to communicate with, responding to emails super quickly. He is so organized and will bring you maps for your trip and spend time actually crafting a completely custom tour based on your specific interests and requests. He goes ABOVE AND BEYOND to be the best tour guide, he truly loves being a guide. On our day in Kyoto, we saw top sites and also had once in a lifetime experiences we never would have found on our own. We saw famous Temples and Shrines and for the first time on our trip, we fully understood what we were looking at. Shin also took us to lesser known Temples that were breathtaking, amazing and off the beaten path. I'm glad we didn't miss them. We ended the day at an Autumn Festiva... read more

SHIN:

Hello Liat san and Gill san Firstly I’d like to say thank you from my heart. It is nice review comment for me. I really feel happy to have been in Kyoto together on such a lovely blue sky day. Yes as you state, I love my job, tour guide. My work is not only just a root guide but like an introduction player to have tourists feel once in a life time memories in Japan tour. And I want them to touch an ordinary life in local people, different culture, fresh seasonal ingredients and everything aside from famous sightseeing places. Candidly speaking, I was thinking about which places and activities would be the best for you over and over again. So,, finally I’ve made up my mind to take gem-like off the beaten tracks near my villa, called Eastern Mountain, called HIGASHIYAMA, to rather k... read more

“ 3 wonderful days seeing Shin’s Japan ”

Shin is the most beautiful and helpful guide who made sure our trip to Japan was easily enjoyed by our family. We are a family of 4 (16 year old boy & 13 year old girl) from Australia. When I initially booked with Shin, he gave us some ideas and then about a week before we left for Japan he emailed through a detailed itinerary and maps. I found this very professional. We arrived in Kyoto the day before typhoon Trami was to hit. Shin was so kind to us in phoning to make sure we were OK and met us the next day to prepare. I appreciate this as there was no news in English and we had no idea what was going on or what to do to prepare. We had a full day with Shin in Kyoto – he magically got us around the city to see the sites we wanted to see and explained about their history and oth... read more

SHIN:

Thank you very much for giving me wonderful days to be with your family. What’s more, I really appreciate your kind review message to my services in Japan tours. Each of your words definitely encourage me to be a nicer guide in my life. I am truly one of the happy guides who could meet wonderful tourist like you. As you state, in Kyoto, we had experienced stormy day by Trami typhoon. But luckily it quickly passed away during night time. I am prioritizing to provide the timely information 24/7 to the guests under any situation. A tourist planning overseas travel needs useful tips of the countries, as well, a guide needs to get an useful information about travelers’ wishes and likes in advance. Thanks to your suitable information and request given to me, I could smoothly create the ... read more
