“ A great day in Kyoto with Toshiyo ”

We had a really good day in Kyoto with Toshiyo. She was very flexible when we changed the itinerary and very patient with my slow progress especially on the climb up the mountain to see the monkeys. After seeing the temple and gardens, and the bamboo forest in the Arashiyama area, we had lunch (Toshiyo had precooked a popular restaurant overlooking the Togetso bridge) and then went on the bus to the Gion area where we explored the fascinating streets and the temple. All in all a wonderful although exhausting day. Thank you again Toshiyo.

“ Exceeded our expectations! ”

Toshi was so very informative and relaxing to be with. Trips can be very hectic in large cities but she showed us more places than we expected and it was so much less stressful than when we visited places on our own. She gave us insight and details on the culture which we were really interested in. We had a very fun time, I would highly recommend Toshi!

“ Great day in Kyoto ”

We spent a very nice day in Kyoto with Toshiyo, we wanted to see a few specific places and she brought us there quickly and efficiently. In the evening she booked a very nice restaurant for us, with a gorgeous view over the city. Thank you!

“ Amazing, energetic and kind! ”

We loved getting to know Toshiyo. She is very energetic and a fast walker, which I loved. She is a hiker so can keep up with the best of them. She showed us all over Kyoto by bus and provided fast facts along the way. The restaurant we went to for lunch, owned by a tea company, was delicious. She also was a great photographer and got excellent shots of us. I would highly recommend her.
