I wonderful day in Nara

Msahisa (Mike) is a true professional and a gentleman. Despite living near Nara he travelled to and from Osaka to make sure we had no issues. He gave us tremendous history and whisked us around Nara via bus and taxi to insure we maximized the experience. Plus he took many wonderful pictures of our family that will be treasured. Arigato Masahisa-San We heartliy recommend him for others!

Chris A.

Chris I’m sure you're all tired from walking through the vast Nara Park after a long flight and not being able to compensate for the time difference. Wish you continue to enjoy your journey here, and return home safely with great family memory. Thanks Masahisa

Very Knowledgeable and Kind

Mike was a great tour guide whose attention to detail and kindness really made our trip. His knowledge of Kyoto and Japan made sure we left with a lot of good information. We went to many places, and he made sure our experience was streamlined and easy to follow. Thank you so much for the awesome adventure!

Jennifer Welcome from City of Big Hearts. I'm sure you are all probably tired from walking such a long distance today without recovering from jet lag. I wish adventure in the Far East for rest of days will be a memorable one for your family. Thank again for visiting us all the way. Thanks Masahisa

Great guide in Kyoto

Mike was our guide for 2 days in Kyoto. He met our cruise ship in Kobe on the morning of the first day and dropped us back off at the end of the 2nd day so we never felt like we wouldn’t be able to find our way. He worked with us to design the 2 days. We initially thought we’d spend the 2nd day in Nara but decided to stay in Kyoto. He was very knowledgeable and worked very hard to ensure we saw everything we wanted to. In addition to seeing many sights he explained a lot of Japanese culture and religion to us in a way that made the experience very enjoyable. We highly recommend him.

Marybeth S.

Marybeth Tight schedule as you had limited time in Kyoto. I'm sure Mark must be so tired from walking a long distance. Although Kyoto City is currently in a state of chaos by overtourism, I am glad that I was able to show you at least one that you could feel good old days of Kyoto. Thank again for visiting us from afar beautiful city and quick-stopover here. Thanks Masahisa
