Hi.I was born in Kobe city famous for Kobe beef. So I grew up eating Kobe beef.No way! It is only a joke.
I like music especially jazz.Actually I can play jazz piano with my jazz band.But when I was younger, I was crazy about rock music. My other hobbies are cooking, oil painting, and calligraphy.

“ Hot day in Kyoto ”

Toru gave a fantastic tour for us on one of the hottest days of the year. He was easy to work with and accommodated all our requests. While on the tour, he used JR Rail lines as much as possible so our transportation costs were low. We learned a lot of interesting facts from him. We highly recommend Toru for your tour.

Toru:

Thank you so much. I enjoyed too in spite of the hottest day. Please take and have lots of fun in Japan.

“ Great guide with a sense of humour ”

Toru is really an amazing guide. He is helpful and super funny- we went for a hike up mount kurama with our 5 months old baby and he was very considerate and accommodating. He is also a very genuine person and we enjoyed spending the day with him Would definitely recommend Toru to friends and will definitely use him for our next trip in japan!

Toru:

Thank you so much. Please come back again!

“ Around Beautiful Kyoto ”

He shown me around the major shrines, temples, smaller shrines and explained the history of each of them. Very friendly, very knowledgeable, and it was fun. Even took me to the Nintendo headquarters but to look from outside the gates, not to go inside(after all, it is a business). It was memorable. Thank you very much.

Toru:

Thank you . Enjoy Japan!
