Great Itinerary

We had a very pleasant time being led around the city with Yoshi. He had an extensive 2 day itinerary and we could not have seen as much without his guidance.

Zeynep E.

Dear Zeynep Thank you for your evaluation. And I am glad you accepted my proposal and it did well. I hope you will travel to Japan again. Yours sincerely, Yoshi

Kyoto has so much to offer!

Yoshi showed us not only the sights but all the transportation modes in Kyoto. He was very well prepared, handing us printed information on different topics such as different eras and religions. He adapted the tour to our needs. The only negative comment is that his English is sometimes difficult to understand. We had a great day!

Guylaine C.

Dear Guylaine Thank you for your evaluation. I think you were very good company. So I also enjoyed the tour. When you come to Japan next time, I will guide you in many Japanese cooking knife shops. Yours sincerely, Yoshi

Nijo castle, a must !

Yoshi, as he likes to be called, was very well prepared for our visit. Nijo castle was the highlight of our Kyoto visits. Unfortunately, we were too tired from the previous day to walk Philosophers path. Thank you Yoshi

Guylaine C.

Dear Guylaine Thank you for your evaluation. Please come to Kyoto again to walk Philosophers path and other beautiful places. Yours sincerely, Yoshi

Nara Highlights from Kyoto or Osaka

Nara
10 hours

Nara is located about 40km south from Kyoto and 30km east from Osaka. It is an older capital than Kyoto and as old as Osaka. It was about 1300 years ago. There are ancient temples. Most of them are older than Kyoto and are not Zen temple. Nara is quieter than Kyoto and Osaka. More than one thousand friendly deer live with Nara citizens. And also Nara has a lot of local food like Sushi, Ramen and so on. You would be able to have unique experience.

Himeji : Hyogo Golden Route (one of five tours)

Himeji
9 hours

Hyogo prefecture is about 150km long in north-south direction. There are many sight seeing spots, not only Kobe, Himeji but also Izush-Toyooka, Tanba-Sasayama Awaji island. So Hyogo government decleared "Hyogo Golden Route" as recommended tours. I would like to guide those areas where tourists do not know well. Each area is one day tour. You can have a different experience from Kyoto or Osaka.

Fushimi Inari Shrine, famous for many torii gates like an orange tunnel. But most tourists just visit only the entrance. I would like to show you the deep inside of Fushimi Inari Shrine through tunnel and take you to the top of mountain. From Inari mountain, we will walk a part of “Higashiyama Trail” hiking course, then we will visit the family temple of imperial house and Sanjusangen-do temple.

Half-day Kyoto History and Culture Tour

Kyoto
4 hours

First and foremost, I do not want to provide a typical tour to the standard fair of tourist attractions. As with the majority of visitors to Kyoto, you do not really need a guide to visit such places. Instead, what makes my tour special is that I can show you the unique places of Kyoto with the addition of a historical and cultural background. Lunch at local restaurants, visit temples of the beaten path, go to local shopping arcades for unique products. Enjoy Kyoto without the crowds.

Half-day eastern Kyoto off the beaten track

Kyoto
4 hours

There are a lot of wonderful places in Kyoto, especially in the cherry blossom and autumn foliage seasons. But, because of that, such places are so busy. So I escort you to not busy, but still beautiful places. Sometimes I wonder why tourists don't visit those places. This tour is to visit such places and I don't walk on a busy road. In the end, I'd like to recommend a restaurant, considering your allergy or preference.
