“ 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.

“ Fun day in Kyoto ”

We had a very nice day with Toshiyo. She made sure to take us to all of the places we requested and was flexible with our schedule. She is from Kyoto so she is knowledgable about the area. We hope to return one day!

“ Lovely day in Kyoto ”

Toshi was a great help in helping us see a few of the highlights Kyoto had to offer. We enjoyed our day with her very much and would recommend her as a tour guide to others.

“ 2 Days Kyoto tour. ”

Toshiyo is a pleasant and knowledgeable as a private tour guide, and ultimately made our Kyoto stay very memorable. We had a great time visiting the must see places as we only spent 2days there. And also brought us to the nice restaurant at Arashiyama. Thank you.
