Six hour in Kyoto with Haruka

We only had a little over 6 hours in Kyoto on a rainy day, so I turned to Haruka to help us to see as many places as we could, and he did it perfectly. Haruka arranged a car for us, and took us to all the main attractions in Kyoto. Besides perfect English and his knowledge about Kyoto, Haruka can also tell you anything about Japanese history and culture. We had a really nice tour of Kyoto, thanks to Haruka.

Dear Louis, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a great review for me. It was a pleasure to meet you and host your tour. There was a lot of crowd and traffic than I anticipated, so we couldn’t see as much as we could have seen on a less crowded day but I’m glad that you enjoyed my tour. Hope to see you again. Thank you and with best, Haruka

An afternoon introduction to Kyoto

Haruka is a charming, friendly and kind young man with and excellent knowledge of the sites and history of Kyoto. He took us to sites which matched our interest, some of which we would not have found on our own and suggested changes to our proposed itinerary, as we went along, to match our interests. He navigated us around Kyoto expertly using local buses which added a flavour of local colour to our experience. His english is excellent and I would recommend him highly.

Dear Chris, Thank you very much for taking your time to write a great review and I am glad to hear that you’ve enjoyed my tour. It was a pleasure to show you and everyone around Kyoto. I myself enjoyed seeing those beautiful gardens at that special time, especially with someone who appreciated the things we’ve seen. Thank you also for the gifts and I’m hoping to see you some time again in your country. Thank you and with best, Haruka

Perfect Day Kyoto

My mom, aunt, and I had a full day tour of Kyoto with Haruka. We customized it and were able to squeeze in everything we wanted to do. He picked us up from the train station and dropped us back off there, making it much easier for us. Haruka spoke perfect English and was very knowledgable about Kyoto and it's culture/history/food/experiences/etc. He easily answered all of our questions. We had a wonderful and fun day. I highly recommend Haruka!

Dear Ashley, Thank you very much for taking your time to write a great review. It was a pleasure showing you and your family around Kyoto. I, myself enjoyed the experience as well and those sakes were really good. I’m glad that you enjoyed as well! Thank you and with best, Haruka
