“ Excellent toue guide (& great photographer) ”

Kosuke is an excellent toir guide. My family and I - with an elderly mother - had a day trip in Kyoto from Osaka. He fetched right at the train platform right on time, so we didn’t have to walk around the starion looking for him. We only had a few places in mind, and left the ret up to him. He was able to bring to the few places we asked and to other places as well that were away from the tourist crowd. We had relaxing lunch - also away from the crowd - good food and quiet. And he is a good photographer. If you don’t want photobombs on your photo, Kosuke is the guy you should go to. It’s magic how he makes all those crowd disappear from your photos. Highly recommend him.

“ Important Kyoto/Nara cultural sights with awesome lunch ”

Great time with Kosuke - definitely recommend! Kosuke’s private tour allowed us to visit important sights in our short time in Kyoto that we would never have been able to do on our own. He shared valuable cultural information and took us to an impossible to find neighrhood restaurant run by a master sushi chef.
