Excellent guide; knows Kyoto very well

Toshiyo is an excellent guide. Her English is very good. She showed us some of the amazing temples of Kyoto and explained their history. My girlfriend wanted to try the traditional kimono dress, and she helped us make it work! :-)

Nice sightseeing guidance

Toshiyo san was hired for our one day sightseeing trip to Kyoto. She arrived on time at the agreed meeting point and was very friendly throughout the tour. Being a local, she was very knowledgeable about the places and its historical importance that was explained to us nicely. She was patient enough to answer our queries and assist us in all possible ways throughout the day.

IN PERSON Kyoto Shrine & Temple Tour

Kyoto

I pick you up @ your Hotel (or) Kyoto Station, we hit my favorite Zen Temple with an amazing history, then one of most prominent Shrines in Kyoto, then the Castle so we can see how a Shogun ran a Castle. We head to the famous Nishiki Market and I show you what are the foods you should try (with sake) and then off to eat a little Okonomiyaki and hit two Geisha (Geiko) Districts.
