Excellent Tour with Dr. Yasu

My family and I spent the day with Dr. Yasu who helped us tailor the day to our preference. Even during the day Dr Yasu was super flexible helping us take detours to see things we wanted to see and stop at stores to purchase souvenirs and snacks. Highly recommended.

Day in Kyoto

Yasu, Was to take us on a tour in Kyoto and Nara but due to a mistake on my behalf he could only do Kyoto with us. This did not stop him writing clear and prcise instruction on how to self guide ourselves around Nara. great service couldnt go past him if you want a good guiding experience. Yasu San thank you so much for making our experience in Japan something very special.
