“ Osaka Cruise port to Kyoto ”

Moe is a lovely young lady. We immediately felt comfortable with her. She took us on the train to Kyoto. We said we’d like to take the bullet train which we did for the experience. She got our tickets for us. Explained where we were going and listened to our request. Showed us all that we wanted to and understood our needs. Highly recommend.

“ Great guide for Nara! ”

Moe was fantastic! She met us at our hotel in Osaka and we were off to Nara. We took the train and lots of time to chat with her about Nara and the history of the area. She was very knowledgeable of the area and showed us some great sites. For lunch she took us to one of her favorite spots and it was delicious. A real locals joint. She was sweet and funny. Her English was impeccable. At the end of the tour she gave us a list of her favorite hot spots to visit for the rest of our trip. Her sake bar and restaurant recommendations didn’t disappoint. We like one Sake bar so much we went twice! A tour with Moe will be a great highlight for your trip!

Very grateful of the knowledge she has showed me. She explained well with all the history of the temples and such. Felt like hanging out with an old friend. Very kind and happy to share insights of Kyoto. Thank you Moe!

“ Kyoto 6 hour temple/ shrine tour ”

Great day with Moe in Kyoto! She kept us updated via the app before the trip, met us on the train platform to get the day started, and somehow helped us have a very relaxing and jam packed day! We saw many of the standard sights, and also some lesser known ones that weren’t so busy. Since we only had a day to spend, she really helped us take full advantage of our time. Perfect English, relaxed attitude, knowledgeable, easy going. Highly recommend.

“ Best guided tour ever! ”

We spent a day with Moe in Kyoto and it was everything we could ask for and more! She is very easy to communicate, was super friendly and got along really well even with our talkative 7 year old. She did not rush us but at the same time with the homework she had done, we were able to cover everything we had planned for in our 8 hour long sightseeing tour. We had super delicious traditional vegan lunch (that we had requested her) and several stops at local coffee/ ice cream and snack stores. We would highly recommend Moe to anyone visiting Kyoto. Thank you Moe for making our visit to Kyoto a memorable and fun experience. You are the best!

“ Smart, Informative, Flexible, and Very Nice! ”

I thought Moe was great. Very accommodating. She met me at the train station at the exact train and at the exact time of my arrival and took me around for a very enjoyable and personalized tour of Kyoto. She is not a slave to a required routine. For example, I get tired at times of overdoing temples and the standard spots, so she instantly adjusted to show me places "off the beaten track." Her perfect English was also a plus.

“ Excellent tour conducted by extremely professional and personable guide ”

Moe provided my wife Carolyn and I with the best guided tour of Osaka imaginable. It all started well before our tour date with excellent communication from Moe seeking our input in to planning our one day tour of Osaka. We had some specific objectives and Moe suggested others to compliment these and as result we felt that we were getting exactly what we we were looking for from a private tour with extras on top. Moe is a delightful and extremely talented young woman who knows her region extremely well and her communication skills are outstanding having a particularly strong command of English. She has an excellent sense of humour and is at all times attentive and sensitive to her clients needs as demonstrated by her caring shown towards my wife's difficulties with coping with stairs. ... read more

“ Amazing time! ”

We had the most amazing time exploring with Moe! She was very knowledgeable of the area, friendly and very good with kids. She took time to explain things and share her culture. She was like an instant friend and we were sad when the tour was over. You have to book Moe if you want to experience Kansai region with a local. Thank you Moe and we look forward to the next time!

“ Wonderful Day ”

We enjoyed a lovely day visiting sites with Moe. It was so much more meaningful to have Moe explain the significance of what we were looking at to us. Moe also took us to a delicious restaurant for lunch that locals go to. We certainly wouldn’t have found that place on Trip Advisor or Yelp.

“ a taste of japan ”

due to customs we had a very short day with Moe we had a prearranged cattame mat cutting experience which she setup for us that was brilliant unfortunately by the time we got finished with this there was not time for much else but we had a great meal together with lots of different tastes she was a lot of fun Moe stayed with us until very late, much later than we had first arranged which says a lot about her nature we are sorry we could not spend more time with you as we think this would have been really fun day with a lovely guide thanks from Martin & Jane and the group from the UK

“ Excellent guide, fun and flexible! ”

Our day with Moe was fantastic and lot of fun! We spent the day with Moe in Nara. She met us at our hotel and helped us navigate the trains to get to Nara. Even though basic movement through the train stations in Tokyo are relatively simple, if you need to transfer to subways or make fare adjustments, a little help is really appreciated. She helped us see the sights in Nara and was very knowledgeable about the temples and shrines (and the deer!). Her pace was good and she checked in with us often on what we wanted to do or see. She was a wonderful translator with local shops/restaurants. Moe made sure we made it back to our hotel since it was dark/early evening. We recommend Moe highly!

“ Great day touring Kyoto ”

Moe was a fantastic guide for our family of four (two kids 10 and 12). We were only doing a day trip from Tokyo so wanted to see a few different things in one day. More made the trip effortless, getting us to each of the sites with ease. Her ability to explain the cultural significance of some of the traditional Japanese sites made the trip that much better as there is limited English signage and you just wouldn't know what certain things were about otherwise. Highly recommended.

“ Family half day waking tour ”

We asked Moe to organize a half day tour of Kyoto for a family with two children 13 and 11. Organization of the tour was easy and Moe met us at our place of residence. Everything went very smoothly, we visited a number of sites and finally ended up in Gion. Many thanks Moe

“ Wonderful day trip from Osaka to Kyoto and Back ”

Moe is wonderful- we instantly felt comfortable with her. She guided us confidently through the subways, took us to the beat spots in Kyoto and showed us some surprises in Osaka. Our 10 year old son loved the day spent with her and still misses her.

“ Delightful company for a day in Osaka ”

Moe provided us delightful company and guide service during our second visit to Osaka, sharing with us her insights about the city that we did not gain during our first visit traveling on our own 8 years ago. That included her perspectives on Japanese demographics and culture as a local. She showed us to one of her favorite restaurants for a delicious lunch and tipped us off to her favorite sushi joint where we had some unexpectedly good sushi, despite it being more a hole in the wall, that we would have never found on our own.

“ Excellent Guide for Kyoto ”

Moe exceeded my expectations as our guide in Kyoto. She was fluent in English. Moe was extremely knowledgable about the sites that we visited. Moe traveled with us to the Pug Cafe and made sure that we would were able to get back to Kyoto. Wish we had reserved her for a few days!!! She made our trip to Kyoto a memorable one.

“ Our day with Moe in Kyoto ”

Moe was the perfect guide for me and my 9yr old granddaughter. She was most suitable for our needs as first time visitors to the city. Moe guided us with ease and her local knowledge to the most interesting places. We loved the Bamboo Forest and Monkey Mountain. We even managed a Rickshaw ride. So many great memories to take home. Her punctuality, English language and fun outlook made for a fabulous day. We highly recommend Moe to anyone who wants to have a memorable day in Kyoto. Thank you Moe

“ Fun Day in Osaka ”

With only 1 day in Osaka at the end of our two week trip, keeping us enthused and energised with a fun itinerary was a tall order. But Moe was more than up to the task, with a packed itinerary that was well organised and researched. Moe was great fun to be with and was happy to include lots of our quirky requests along the way (tuna tasting from the market, a pachinko visit to name just two). Moe's character is easy going and her English is excellent. Would have no hesitation in recommending her as a guide for those looking to get a real immersion into the great city of Osaka. Thanks again Moe

“ Walking the streets of Kyoto with Moe! ”

Firstly, Moe arrived right on time! Her English is excellent and her knowledge history of the Shrines and Temples, Kyoto in general, good places to eat and shop was exceptionally good! She was a mini pocket of information, laughs and has a great sense of humour! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Moe, and will see her again in two days for another adventure! I would highly recommend Moe!!

“ Great day in Kyoto with Moe! ”

We really enjoyed our day with Moe in Kyoto. She met us at our hotel promptly in the morning. She was so friendly and prepared for our day. Moe took us to visit the Yasaka shrine, Fushimi Inari shrine (Thousands of Torii-Gate) and the Arashiyama Area Bamboo Forest. She is very knowledgeable and shared so many interesting historical facts as well as Japanese customs. She always had the best suggestions on the perfect spot to take photos and was willing to accommodate us in any way. Moe's English is very good as she spent time in Australia as a college student. We ended our day before Moe went on to give a good tour at the Nishiki market. We're so happy we got to meet Moe and would recommend her for your visit!

“ Memorable trip to Kumano, Owase and Uji ”

Moe is energetic, extrovert, friendly and easy to be with. She was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and I was delighted how easily she led us to Kumano and back by several trains even though it was very crowded because of the Kumano Fireworks Festival. Thank you Moe.

“ Our greatest, funny, reliable, friendly tour guide ”

We are so please to meet Moe-san as our tour guide to Kyoto and Osaka. She did her very best to stay with us for a very long time. Eventhough we didnt got to see the places we originally discussed we had a great time with her very much! She is a very sweet lady and she loves kids too. We didnt have time to see the other kyoto/osaka places due to traffic. She brought us to the great Kimono rental in Kyoto to walk around the Bamboo Forest. She knows a lot of history of the places we went to. She introduced me to Soy/sesame ice cream and soy donut! Its the best ever.. we also stop by to get some me a Yukata. Shiba Ino shop, my little side trip to pharmacy to get cold wipes for us.. the best sixy ramen ever! We went to namba place and took some pictures saw glico man, eat takoyaki and okonomiy... read more

“ 1 day in Kyoto ”

My teenage son and I had only one day to spend touring Kyoto and wanted to make the most of it. Moe is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable of the Nijo Castle, Temples and Shrines that we visited. Moe’s knowledge of the public transportation system was a huge help and it gave us the confidence to navigate the trains and subways of Tokyo on our own. Thank You Moe

“ Japanese ear cleaning ”

Moe was so helpful in every step of making our ear cleaning appointment since I do not read or speak Japanese. She always responded quickly with the tedious task of coordinating the appointment for three of us. She met us at our hotel at our request; and I am so glad she did, for we would have never found the place! She accompanied us to our appointment to help us complete their consent forms and made sure everything ran smoothly before she departed since the establishment did not speak English. I would definitely recommend her and will also tell my friends who plan to visit Osaka!

“ Moe is GREAT! ”

Moe is the best! This was just one day trip in Osaka after a group tour in Tokyo for my family of 5 people. We had a great communication prior to arrival and she showed up on time to meet us. Her English is perfect and she is very polite and knowledgeable. We spent 5 1/2 hours with her and we saw “a lot of” Osaka especially Dotonbori, Shinsekai, and Namba area. My sons wanted to skip castle/temple/shrine but we experienced great amount of true Osaka. Moe had smile on her face all the time and she was very flexible and was accommodating and she was willing to take us to where we wanted to go. For example, we went to one Tuna sashimi place and we had THE BEST tuna sashimi ever!!! We also stopped by several informal places to eat and they were great!

“ Highlights of Nara and Osaka ”

We booked 1 day to Nara and 1 day in Osaka with Moe. Both days we spent with her were very fun. We brought our 1 yr old daughter and she was so good with her. Traveling with young kids is always a bit more work and slower, but Moe was so patient and helpful! Her spoken English was excellent because she has studied in Australia, so nothing lost in translation. She was able to help us navigate the public transportation system to see so many places which we would have gotten lost on our own. She is also a foodie expert and does a food tour! She introduced us to the popular foods during our days with her. We had an amazing time with her! We would definitely use her again if we are in the area.

Moe:

Thank you so much for taking my tour & your kind comment. Great to see all of you, and I also had amazing time with you. I hope you can come back to Japan soon (there are still so much things to see!!!) and have safely arrived home.

I can guide you Hiroshima if you could pay my round transportation fee to the area from Osaka and accommodation (around 16000 yen in total) in addition to the usual guide fee, transportation and meals during the tour. I used to live in Hiroshima, so I am quite familiar with Hiroshima as well!!
