Kenji was very personable and very accomodating. He went out of his way to research in advance details on how to accomplish what we wanted. Had a little difficulty in getting lockers for our luggage. Probably needed to know how much walking our group was comfortable with. Could have adjusted timetable a little better. Very pleasant experience.
Dan-san, Thank you for your great review of my tour. I'm very glad that you liked my guiding. I'll make next tour better referring to your comment. Thank you. Kenji
We had a lovely half day with Kenji who showed us some of the major spots we wanted to see in Kyoto and he took us to a wonderful sushi and tempura restaurant for lunch. Highly recommend.

Kenji was an engaging and informative guide and we all had a lovely day with him. It was very hot but Kenji came well prepared and took us to all the sites we wanted to see and patiently explained them as well as all the history in Kyoto. I would highly recommend Kenji to anyone who wants an excellent guide who spoke very good English. Bonus points for taking us to a fantastic restaurant in Gion where the food was sensational! Thanks Kenji
Thank you for your great review of my tour. I'm very glad that you and your party could enjoy my guiding and nice lunch I recommended. I hope you will be able to visit Japan again in future. Thank you again, Kenji.
Kenji is very well knowledge about Osaka and Japanese history and culture. He had a document that shows the history of the various emperors and shoguns, he also illustrated the main points of the various sights and places we have visited. He brought us straight from one location to another quickly and efficiently. He went along to his agenda. Kenji works on the agenda as a checklist and we could close the tour on time.
Thank you for your great review of my Osaka tour. I'm very glad that you could enjoy the tour and I could also enjoy spending a wonderful time with you and your wife. Your review is a very good incentive to my next tour.
