I needed help with navigation and language in Osaka and Kyoto for two days, and had very specific ideas of what I wanted to see and do in a very tight timeline. A few places I wanted to go were not typical tourist destinations, and a few places involved arriving very late night or early morning. Kaori seemed happy to take on the challenge of guiding me, even if she had not taken other tourists to some of the places I wanted to go. She even went out of her way to learn more about the things I was interested in, and was able to suggest additional stops that enhanced my trip. Kaori was very organized and knew the Osaka and Kyoto areas very well. Her conversational English is exceptional - she is very easy to understand and communicate with. She has a high level of energy and is very friendly at any time of the day. She was also able to be patient and accommodating with a tired tourist who completely wore himself out! Kaori is an excellent guide, and I highly recommend her.
Hello Leigh! Thank you for leaving great comment! Your wishes are not same as most of other my guests so it was a bit of challenge for me. I was worried that I can make you satisfied or not,,,, I am so glad you could enjoy your time in Osaka and Kyoto in super tight time! It was very good experience for me to visit Bamboo grove at 6am,,, in silence, so people,,,, amazing view! We had a bit scary experience after that, still the day with you is unforgettable :) I wish you had good time in Tokyo, too!! Please come back to Japan with a bit more free time! I’d love to show you more and more ;)) Thank you very much! Kaori
