Dear Deborah san, Thank you so much for your kind review! I'm glad to hear you had good time in Nara and Kyoto. I wish I could make your trip more effective so that we could go to the rest of the places. I learned a lot of things that I've never thought of from you:) Thank you so much again for choosing me.
Ikumi has excellent English skills and has a wonderful bubbly personality. We spent a wonderful two days being shown round Osaka and Kyoto. She has lots of fascinating insights and is excellent company with a good sense of humour. We can heartily recommend her services
Dear Kalsom san, Thank you so much for your great reviews! I had so much fun with guiding you around Osaka and Kyoto. I'm happy that you had a good time:) Hope to see you again in the future when you come back here.
Ikumiis a wonderful guide. We have 7 and 10 year old girls who are usually quite shy but they warmed up very quickly to Ikumi's welcoming personality and sun had lots of questions for her ( thanks for being so patient Ikumi!) My kids had a blast. We visited some shrines/ temples and enjoyed hearing about the history of them in addition to the Japanese culture. There was rain forecasted in the second half off our day so she was flexible in changing the itinerary to be sure we would see the most important places on our list first. She never rushed us and let us experience each location at our leisure. She was prompt to pick us up and was wonderful with the kids. Thanks again for such a fun day!
Dear June san, Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity in the whole trip. I also enjoyed guiding you around the city and got chance to know about you and your family. We're so lucky to visit most of the places in the list despite of the weather. I wish I could take you to the Nijo castle but hope you'll have time to visit there. I appreciated the girls took interested in each historical sites and had lots of questions. I hope I can guide you again next time you'll be here in the future.
Though Ikumi is relatively new to the industry, she makes a lot of effort in identifying areas of interests to make our Kyoto day tour lovely and enjoyable. She researches the history well and shows us the local rituals, which greatly enhance our understanding and appreciation of Japanese culture. She's helpful and friendly. We have got to know Kyoto more in depth than previous trips. Thanks, Ikumi, being such a lovely companion showing us around!
