“ Knowledgeable & friendly guide ”

Moe was great. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our time schedule. She was waiting on the train platform when we arrived, took us to see some Kyoto highlights. Found a lovely place to eat that accommodated my vegetarian diet and directed us on how to get back to the train.

“ Afternoon in Osaka ”

We had Moe show us around Osaka for an afternoon and had a great time with her as our guide! She was very easy to work with in planning an itinerary and very flexible too! She was on time, spoke great English and taught us a lot about the city! Highly recommend booking a tour with Moe!

“ Touring Kyoto ”

Four of us, our first visit to Japan and no Japanese language skills, enjoyed a full day tour of Kyoto with Moe. All of us thought she was a terrific guide, highly fluent in English, easily understandable, and a delightful conversationalist on all topics. We enjoyed her willingness to engage in informed discussion with us on a wide variety of topics, both historical and current. It provided us an excellent first exposure to Japanese culture. She prepared a fun itinerary for the day, introducing us to so many highlights of the beautiful city of Kyoto. Her knowledge and skill in using the extensive local public transportation system allowed us to see the maximum number of sights in the single day we had available. Her fun and pleasant demeanor made the day a real pleasure for us all. ... read more

“ Osaka Cruise port to Kyoto ”

Moe is a lovely young lady. We immediately felt comfortable with her. She took us on the train to Kyoto. We said we’d like to take the bullet train which we did for the experience. She got our tickets for us. Explained where we were going and listened to our request. Showed us all that we wanted to and understood our needs. Highly recommend.

“ Great guide for Nara! ”

Moe was fantastic! She met us at our hotel in Osaka and we were off to Nara. We took the train and lots of time to chat with her about Nara and the history of the area. She was very knowledgeable of the area and showed us some great sites. For lunch she took us to one of her favorite spots and it was delicious. A real locals joint. She was sweet and funny. Her English was impeccable. At the end of the tour she gave us a list of her favorite hot spots to visit for the rest of our trip. Her sake bar and restaurant recommendations didn’t disappoint. We like one Sake bar so much we went twice! A tour with Moe will be a great highlight for your trip!
