“ Sight seeing and hiking ”

We are so grateful to have met and spent time with Kiyoko who was a terrific guide. As we traveled and achieved all our goals in our 3 day stay in Wakayama. Her knowledge was great and assistance with our 2 year olds needs was super helpful.


Bailey, thank you very much for your kind comment! I am very happy to hear that. It was my great pleasure to have guided you here. I guess you had a great time in Tokyo and Nagano. Thank you again.

“ Memorable Day ”

Our day with Kiyoko was amazing. She gave us a lot of historical information on the Kumano Kodo while hiking. I loved that she had us do a few stretches before we started and hiked at a good pace. It has been something on my bucket list for years so it was nice to experience a portion of the Pilgrimage and I now hope to do more of it in the near future. Kiyoko was easy to talk with and was very knowledgeable regarding the area, plant and arbor life and was well prepared with literature and pamphlets.

Thank you very much for choosing my tour. I appreciate your review. Thank you so much for your kind words. I was sorry for taking time to get stamp and send it back to you. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour and pilgrimage. I hope sometime in the future you can come back to Kumano and find out something that you did not see this time. I will try to train myself to be a better guide. Thank you.

“ Lovely hike despite the heavy rain ”

Kiyoko was proactive, weeks before our trip, she’s in touch and making sure we are prepped. During the hike, it was raining, she was very patient with us and being very accommodating. Thank you so much.


Thank you very much for your kind comment. It was great to walk with you. I will practice more and cope with any situations including rain.
