“ 2 days in Kyoto ”

We were on a cruise ship stopping in Kobe. Rather than take tours from the ship and spend time going to and from Kyoto we decided to stay overnight in Kyoto and take advantage of our time especially in the evenings to see the geisha district . Although we have the added cost of a hotel our outlay overall was similar to 2 days touring with the ship and we saw so much more and the benefit of travelling in and out of Kyoto only once on the bullet train which was actually quite expensive .Kashima Met us at the cruise ship as with no knowledge or experience of the Japanese train network we did not know where we were going we found Kashima as a guide to speak good English and have a great knowledge of his cities and culture. Getting around in Japan is not easy and again he knew the network very ... read more

“ Kudos for Kashima! ”

Twelve days, four tourists and Kashima! We (two married couples aged 61-72) had a wonderful experience exploring Japan by (per our request) railway, taxi, bus, cable car, metro and by foot! Kashima successfully led us through Tokyo, Kobe, Kanazawa, Hakone, Kyoto, and Osaka. Kashima was on time, was flexible with our schedule when we changed our minds or wanted to rearrange our day. Kashima met us each morning at our hotel and helped us navigate the public transportation systems, acted as translator, answered cultural questions and ALWAYS maintained a positive, helpful and friendly manner. Kashima worked hard to arrange a special evening with an apprentice Geisha (Maiko) for us. This was something we wanted to experience but didn’t realize how difficult to find or arrange a “real” ... read more

“ Wonderful and informative guide. ”

Kashima was my guide for two days in Kyoto, I appreciated his able guidance through the various temples and monkey Park. The document he prepared for me is very informative and customized for me, I learned a lot thanks to his excellent guidance. Kashima was kind to showing me how to take the bullet train and not get lost in the train station. Excellent guide! Silvia

KASHIMA:

Hello Silvia san, Thank you very much for your great and utmost review for me. I am very much pleased that you enjoyed a lot for two days Kyoto tour. We visited Arashiyama, Tenryuji temple, Bamboo forest, Moon crossing bridge, Fushimi Inari shrine, Nijo castle, Gion, Monkey park, Ryoanji temple, Kinkakuji temple and Sanjusangendo temple. Specially, you had a lot of fun for Gion watching with Maiko crossing in the dark night at late evening, to play with Monkeys, Kinkakuji temple with beautiful three stories Golden pavilion and Sanjusangendo with one thousand Kannon statue inside there. I would like to be proud that I could took a miracle shot of your photo in Gion with Maiko lady behind you clearly while walking through by chance.

“ Warm, knowledgable and accommodating ”

Kashima San hosted my wife, son and I on a days' tour of Tokyo. We had prearranged the itinerary to include some sites, some shopping and a museum. He met us at our hotel and talked us through the Tokyo Rail and Subway system which once you understand it is very efficient. We saw the Imperial Palace Bridges, Zozoji Temple (which is lovely), then we had time in Ginza including time in a quaint Japanese Print Shop Kashima San had identified for us. We finished in Shinjuku. Through out the day Kashima San let us take the time we wanted to see the sites, never rushing us, explaining the points of interest many you would miss without a guide. He also told us how to easily get to sights we wanted to see on the subsequent days We have no hesitation recommending Kashima San for yo... read more

KASHIMA:

I am pleased that you, your wife and your son (8 years old) enjoyed the tour a lot, specially you for the photos of various sight spots, your wife for watching various types of Kimono and shopping Japanese art prints (Ukiyoe paintings) in Ginza and your son to see tense Samurai play watching in Samurai museum. It was good for your wife to find lots of excellent Ukiyoe paintings and purchased them at S.WATANABE COLOR PRINT.Co. in Ginza. I hope that you also enjoyed your tour in Japan on following days. I am looking forward to supporting you again as a guide in the future. Thanks, Kashima
