Perfect day in Kyoto

Yuta was super in time to pick us up at our Hotel. He showed us shrines and Temples and he took care of our wishes concerning chocolate, lunch and Dinner.. We Can highly recommend him as a Tour Guide. He Spoke German very well because he is married with a german Lady.

Wolfgang  G.

Hello Wolfgang!! Thank you for your wonderful review. It was a memorable day touring Kyoto with you guys, just when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom! I will never forget the seafood bowl we had at Nishiki Market. We had fun visiting temples, shrines, street food, and every place while talking about each other's countries. It was a fulfilling and wonderful time! Please let me know when you come to Japan again! Thank you!

The BEST Path To Fushimi Inari

While in Kyoto, my wife and I wanted to visit Fushimi Inari Shrine. We also wanted to forest bathe. Yuta's "Secret Hiking Tour" to Fushimi Inari sounded intriguing. Yuta's experience was more than intriguing. It was enlightening! Envision entering a forest near a Kyoto residential area...passing intimate shrines, and stepping on moss-covered stones along a brook before entering a bamboo forest...Ultimate forest bathing!! At the peak of your hike, you reach Fushimi Inari Shrine. The Shrine is popular. Many people make the pilgrimage. After prayers at the Shrine, we descended down the voluminous stairs as throngs of people scaled the stairs from below. My wife and I would not have enjoyed taking a round trip on the stairs. Reaching the Shrine via Yuta's "Secret Hike" is the best path to Fushimi Inari. You arrive invigorated and forest-bathed! The descent from the Shrine via the stairs becomes a unique experience rather than a reverse duplication of one's ascent. Now that you know Yuta's "secret," engage him. Yuta is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. Wear comfortable shoes! And savor forest bathing beneath a canopy of soaring bamboo! Arigato gozaimasu, Yuta!!

Hello John! Thank you for joining for my tour. First of all, I am honestly happy to have received such a beautiful and wonderful review from you. My tour is not as good as it could be with my own efforts. It was a great tour because we have fun spending time and have friendly conversations, and create tour together. During the tour, you showed interest in various things and enjoyed many of Japan's local scenery and nature. I'm happy to be able to tour you and your wife. Please contact me when you come to Japan again. Thank you so much! Yuta

Super friendly and flexible!

Yuta was a pleasure to be around, well worth having a guide to bring you around Kyoto as it can be crowded and confusing when visiting. He was so patient with our very diverse group. He was knowledgeable and helpful. Such a friendly guy, I would recommend him to anyone visiting Kyoto!

Daniela A.

Hi Daniela!! Thank you for booking my tour! It was a great time as guide with you guys. I'm so happy to see you found a good hairpin Kanzashi and George always had a funny joke to tell me. I had fun talking with Lucas a lot about Nintendo and I had many conversations with Isabel about Fushimi Inari Shrine. I loved the mix of Brazilian and Irish in your family. Please contact me when you come to Japan again!

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.
