Masaki (Makoon) is an excellent guide. Besides being so knowledgeable, he is charming and fun to be with. We had been to Kyoto before, but Makoon made it seem like a whole new experience. We enjoyed walking in the Gion area and seeing another side to the more formal sights in Kyoto. He was very caring and considerate as my husband has a bit of trouble walking and he made sure we took breaks and walked at his slower pace. I could not have chosen a better guide....just excellent in every way.
Dear Ellyn san, It's truly an honor for me to recieve words like yours. I'd like to thank you again for your decision to come to Kyoto. When you are on a cruise ship, going out for a tour is actually a challenge. Bus tours are not always flexible, public transportation is complicated, and more than anything, time restriction. We saw quite a lot in the limited time, and I'm especially happy to hear it was "a whole new experience"! There's always more in this ancient capital! I'm sincerely looking forward to seeing you again! Warm Regards, Masaki Makoon Mori
