Walking along historical trail between Nara and Yagyu where was used to be the mecca of swordsmanship "Kenjyutu" during Edo era. As Yagyu family was a leader of Yagyu Shinkage Ryu, one of the stile of Japanese swordsmanships, many samurais visited Yagu to learn the skill through the trail. You can enjoy such old trail thinking about samurai who were eager to improve the skill of swordsmanship.

I can guide you the tours in Kyoto and Osaka. However such tours will be prepared in customized manner in accordance with your request, if my transportation fees from Nara to either Kyoto or Osaka are paid by you.
As the tour is 4 hours walking in the mountain. you may need the appropriate wears and shoes. Total tour takes about 4 hours plus bus trip.
Yasuhisa speaks perfect English and knows Nara and the surrounding cities and towns backward and forward. But more important, there's nothing he can't do. We asked him for a custom tour with lots of planning, unusual requests, and long hours. He accommodated it all, in some cases beyond what anyone could reasonably expect. He has my highest possible recommendation.
Thank you very much for your kind words. I was also very happy to guide you in Nara.
Great at everything: English, knowledge of history, attention to customer and ability to navigate in Kyoto
Elena Thank you very much for your kind and nice comments.It might be difficult to arrange the tour in Kyoto that can be satisfied by both adult and children. Hoping to continue nice tours in Hiroshima, Osaka and Hakone. I could discuss more about the fisheries issues in US and Canada..
