“ Outstanding ”

An outstanding tour experience of Kyoto. Mr Tohru had arranged a thoughtful itinerary. He was very knowledgeable, an excellent host who was very considerate. Mr Tohru has an excellent command of English as well. Highly recommended.


Dear Moe-san, Thank you very much for joining my tour! I'm glad that you have enjoyed one-day tour too much. You are so friendly, open-minded and kind-hearted that I could spend a wonderful day guiding you around Kyoto. You are one of the most delightful guests, so I would like to show you around Kyoto again. Thank you so much! Best regards,
