Thank you Keiko for making our visit to Kyoto so enjoyable. We booked an evening tour in Gion with Keiko and had a very wonderful time with her. She is an insightful and a delightful guide. Her itinerary was organized and she has some wonderful stories she shared. We had a fantastic dinner with her and learned so much about Japanese cuisine. Highly recommended.
Hi, Alex-san and Girlie-san. Thank you so much for the kind review. I was happy that both of you liked Japanese Gyoza and Japanese SAKE, Junmaidaiginjoshu, as well as sashimi with some garnish. Hope you come back to Japan to enjoy another Kyoto! Please continue your lovely days. Thank you so much. Keiko
We had 2 full days and a cooking lesson with Keiko and she was fantastic. We were able to see and do so much during our time in Kyoto due to having Keiko design an itinerary that made the most of our time there. We had a group of 6 and I would thoroughly recommend spending more than 1 day with Keiko. The cooking experience was a lot of fun. We would do it all again and would not hesitate to ask Keiko to be our guide.
Hi, Scott and your beautiful happy family! Thank you for your warm comment and also for choosing me as your guide in Kyoto. I had great time, too. Please come back to experience another Kyoto as well as Nara and Osaka. It' d be my pleasure if you made sushi and other Japanese home-cooking back in your country with my recipe. Please keep having lovely days! Thanks, Keiko
