“ Fun and knowledgeable guide ”

Kosuke was very knowledgeable with all the key sight seeing places we visited. It really made our trip that much better. I.e. when we visited a few shrines, we got to do a few fortune telling the way Japanese people do it, which we wouldn't know how to participate without him. We also got to experience parts of Kyoto that was not known to tourists - quirky coffee shop and non-crowded Japanese rock garden. Car travel also allowed us to conveniently cover more grounds and fit more of Kyoto into our day. We really enjoy our day with him and really highly recommend spending the day with him. (He also speaks English very well too)
