Kyoto Tour Reviews

Great experience

Yoshie was great. I spent 2 days with him, one in Osaka and one in Kyoto. He customized a tour for my wife and I. We enjoyed spending time with him and he customized the trip for us. We told him that we love great food, see great sites, and wanted to experience the culture. He did a great job with all of that. Also, the first time we met was in Osaka and he gave me very clear and easy directions to meet him.

Hi Brian. I appreciate your kind words of thanks for my tour in Osaka and Kyoto. I am pleased that you liked the kushi-katsu in Osaka and the yakitori in Kyoto a lot. I hope you have returned home safely with lots of good memory of Japan. Ichigo Ichie Yoshie

Yoshie San was fantastic!!

We had the best day with Yoshie! Not only did he take us to so many fantastic places, but he wonderfully catered our day to make it kid-friendly. His English is great and his knowledge of the region and history helped make the tour top notch. Thank you so much for your help, kindness and understanding Yoshie San! We really appreciate you and hope to come back someday and visit again!

Hi Shayna. Thank you very much for giving me a wonderful review for my tour in Kyoto. I am glad that you all enjoyed the tour, and that your children liked the monkey park in spite of the tiring walk up the hill. I hope our paths will cross someday soon, too. Best wishes. Yoshie

Excellent Tour

We had a great tour and saw many sites in Kyoto very quickly. It was an excellent mix of history and local culture. As a wonderful treat Yoshi gave us each origami items that were made by hand by his wife. Our biggest compliment was that Yoshi kindly adjusted the tour to fit a what our family needed and even made day of adjustments when we needed to further tweak our plans.

I from Arashiyama to Sagano, one of the finest spots in Kyoto. In particular the view form Togetsukyo Bridge crossing over Katsura River is very impressive. Arashiyama is populary known for cherry blossoms in spring and beautifully changing colors of autumn leaves in autumn. You can enjoy walking through bamboo forests. They give us a sense of coolness, especially on May and June they grow lushly.  We visit Otagi and Adashino Nenbutsuji Temple with many small unuque statues.
