amazing experience with mari

Mari is a wonderful, cheerful and informed guide. We very much enjoyed our time with her. She did a great job tailoring an itinerary that really maximized our time yet catered to our individual interests. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to visit Kyoto and wishes to use their time efficiently to see all the wonderful and beautiful things to see there.

Thank you so much for your comments. Today I received a new message from your friend and I thought about you. I am very grateful to your recommendation. (Especially at this moment, the number of tourists is decreasing because of coronavirus. It is not very harmful as flu though.) I will remember you when I guide your friends. Again, thank you so much!!

Amazing tour guide

She was so sweet and knew exactly what I wanted. Not a lot is sight seeing. But more seeing the way of life with Ōsaka

Mari I.

Thank you so much Gillian. I am writing to you remembering the nice moment with you. The time was short, but it was very nice to know you! I am always looking forward to meeting you again in the future. :)

IN PERSON Kyoto Shrine & Temple Tour

Kyoto
8 hours

I pick you up @ your Hotel (or) Kyoto Station, we hit my favorite Zen Temple with an amazing history, then one of most prominent Shrines in Kyoto, then the Castle so we can see how a Shogun ran a Castle. We head to the famous Nishiki Market and I show you what are the foods you should try (with sake) and then off to eat a little Okonomiyaki and hit two Geisha (Geiko) Districts.
