“ Perfect day in Uji and Arashiyama ”

Mana took care of everything! We took a number of trains and subways to get to our destinations and Mana navigated our trip with ease. It would have taken us all day to get to just one of these areas so having Mana saved us both time and money. All the while she shared interesting facts about the places we visited and also taught us some interesting points about Japanese writing. When we wanted to stop for coffee, she took us to a specific shop that was charming and had a small Japanese garden just outside the window. On the spur of the moment she saw an opportunity for us to attend a tea ceremony that was just about to begin. For only $5, we experienced the tea ceremony that included the most delicious chestnut sweet and a healthy matcha tea made ceremoniously for each of us. Mana is the perfect example of this wonderful culture that serves their guests with dedication and strives to do their best. Thank you Mana for a perfect day in Uji and Arashiyama. The fall colors were spectacular!


Dear Sharon. Thank you very much for such a warmhearted review. Thanks for the multiple visits to Japan. It was great to have you around and I really enjoyed the conversation with you, as you have vast knowledge about Japan and are even eager to learn more about her.Please come to Japan again. I'm always waiting for you!
