Wonderful tour of Kobe and Kyoto

We had a fabulous day with Natsuko on our recent trip to Japan. She planned the day with us ahead of time to make sure that we had a great experience. She was in constant contact with us from the time of booking and gave us a lot of choices. She met us at the Kobe port and gave us a wonderful walking tour of Kobe. She told us the history of Kobe as we walked. We asked her to choose a Kobe beef restaurant for lunch and she chose a great spot that we enjoyed very much. After lunch, she traveled with us to Kyoto by train and reserved a Kimono experience for the four of us. It was a fabulous day because of her. I addition to being a very nice person, she spoke very good English. We highly recommend her and consider her a friend now. We look forward to seeing her again.

John P.

To John, I am truly delighted to read such a wonderful review from you. I feel very lucky to have met you and your family. Your family is so kind and wonderful. As we walked around the Kobe Bay Area, local children approached you and looked at you with admiration, making me feel like I was escorting a celebrity. I am glad that you enjoyed the Kobe beef restaurant I chose for you. It was a local spot where you could savor authentic Kobe beef, and I was happy to share that time and happiness with you. Thank you for sharing the details leading up to the tour as well. It was enjoyable discussing the itinerary with you before we met in person. And even more so, it was a pleasure to meet you on the day and take your family on the tour of Kobe. I look forward to the next time we can meet as friends. Natsuko

Private Tour to Hello Kitty Smile Awaji Island

Had a great day with Natsuko whom is very good with kids. Traveled with a party of 4 adults and two toddlers and Natsuko was amazing singing nursery songs and helping us find formula. Had an amazing time at Hello Kitty Smile allowing us to go back to shop more at Hello Kitty Smile and Apple. Kept us on schedule, held one of my infants to sleep on the bus. Also reached out to bus company as I lost my diaper bag on the bus. Really a fantastic time especially since we took public transportation where as Natsuko normally drives to Awaji island

Wilson L.

Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have your lovely family join the Awaji Island tour. I had a great time singing songs and taking care of your adorable twin children. It was delightful to see your wife enjoy interacting with Hello Kitty, shopping, and participating in the stamp rally. You truly value your family, and I appreciate how kindly you treated me as your guide. Please come visit Japan again. I am grateful for choosing me as your tour guide. Thank you so much.

Osaka

Impressive temple tour

Natsuko was very friendly and professional tour guide, she was very knowledgeable about temples as well as Japanese Buddhism and Shintoism and I learned a lot. Nakayama-ji is a less visited, quiet and memorable ancient temple with impressive blue five-storied pagodas and cherry blossoms in spring. If you like Japanese temples and want to avoid the crowds of tourists, choose Natsuko's temple tour!

Yuchen S.

Thank you for joining my tour today. I was very happy during the tour because you were so kind. Even though you were a customer, you felt like a friend. It was a great time to be able to visit while seeing beautiful cherry blossoms in the good weather. Thank you for showing interest in Japanese culture and history. Despite it being cherry blossom viewing season, being able to visit a temple with few people and feeling warm and calm with you was a great experience. I look forward to guiding you on another tour. Thank you.
