Great tour of Gion and Pontocho

Yasuna took us (family with teenage boys) through Pontocho and the beautiful Gion for the evening, pointing out good restaurants along the way. She has a wealth of knowledge about Japan and it’s history and her English is great. We thoroughly enjoyed our night and were lucky enough to see a Geisha and her Maiko hurry along to an appointment. Would highly recommend Yasuna to be your guide.

Thank you, Marie! I enjoyed walking around with you. I hope it'll be wonderful memory of your family trip. We have lots more things to see here. I'm happy to welcome you again anytime. Have a safe trip and wonderful holidays! Best wishes, Yasuna

One day in Kyoto

I was treated to an awesome day around Kyoto provided by Yasuna From the start of the booking process to the end of the tour Yasuna made the process very easy through being very organised and knowledgeable. On the tour she was very friendly and nothing was ever a problem. Yasuna was open to tell me about her lifestyle and how the Japanese lived. Yasuna’s english was excellent so was very easy to communicate with. I needed gluten free food and she made sure this was provided and there was no isuues Yasuna has a warm colourful personality and i recommend her for anyone wanting a fun and interesting day

Dear Wayne, Thank very much for the wonderful review. I enjoyed guiding you around Kyoto! It was such a short visit but I hope the day will be a memorable part of your trip. You should take your wife with you next time and stay in Kyoto longer. I'm looking forward to seeing you again! Best regards, Yasuna

Extremely good tour guide

Yasuna was energetic and showed us everything and more that we wanted to see in the time allowed. She took us to Nara and Kyoto to kid friendly places. We had 3 kids ages 9 to 14 and Yasuna accomodated them very well. She knew where to go to please both the kids and adults. Even though the schedule time was aggresive she maintained the time very well such that we could see everything we wanted to see.

Hi Larry, Thank you very much for the good review! I'm happy to hear that all of you could enjoy your time. I enjoyed exploring around with you too! I hope your family trip became a memorable one. See you again! kind regards, Yasuna
