Toshiyo san was hired for our one day sightseeing trip to Kyoto. She arrived on time at the agreed meeting point and was very friendly throughout the tour. Being a local, she was very knowledgeable about the places and its historical importance that was explained to us nicely. She was patient enough to answer our queries and assist us in all possible ways throughout the day.

Toshiyo:
