A great use of time and a very professional guide.

We were in town for a conference and our sightseeing time was somewhat limited. I am so glad we were able to find Fuhito, as he made the full day packed with some of the best arts, culture, dining, history, and just a great day. Fuhito was able to add tremendous value by sharing the whole story of the many sights we visited. We felt like we were getting the inside scoop as he toured us around.

Perfect way to spend a day at Kyoto - getting around with Fuhito san

Fuhito san speaks perfect English, and is a very professional, friendly tour guide with a deep knowledge about the area. I highly reccommend to book his time slot if you are planning to spend some time in Kyoto, especially if your visit is for the very first time like us - Even though we contacted him on the day before the arrival, he was able to schedule and manage the perfect sightseeing plan which we truly enjoyed. Thank you so much Fuhito san, we look foward to seeing you by chance again!
