Half day special customized tour in Kyoto

1.5 days of tours of Kyoto with Toshiyo

We had a four hour tour the first day with Toshiyo on Monday and 6.5 hours the second day. We got to everything we were supposed to see and Toshiyo is a very nice person who goes out of her way to help people. We saw everything on our itinerary except for the Fushimi Inari shrine, which we will have to do on our own. The only odd thing on our 7 hour tour is that we didn’t break for lunch. We did ask a couple of times, but went 6.5 hours before stopping for ramen, and everyone was admittedly a little “hangry”. The tour started at 8:30 and finally got some lunch around 3 pm. Both tours were still very good and we would recommend touring with Toshiyo O.

Len B.

Thank you for having me as your guide and writing me the kind review. It was hard to find nice places to eat for lunch on our way without wasting time to visit important sites. So finally I found a place but the place was hard to please your wife. I hope you enjoyed Kyoto very much. Toshiyo

Special day in Kyoto

We would like to thank Toshiyo for spending the day with us in Kyoto. We traveled from opposite sides of Kyoto and saw multiple sights that we wouldn't have been able to accomplish without Toshiyo. It was an impactful day with 15,000 steps worth of sights and knowledge. We would recommend Toshiyo for future travels.

John M.

Dear John, Thank you very much for having me as your guide and the warm hearted review. I appreciate very much. I really hope you enjoyed Kyoto and you will visit Japan with your lovely daughter officer. Thank you. Toshiyo

Kyoto is an ancient city, which used to like be the capital of Japan for 1000 years. There are about 1600 temples and 400 shrines and beautiful gardens.

Gion is the area of entertainment, where there are many bars and taverns. Some important business and political talks have been conducted. You may run across Maiko and Geiko, Japanese entertainers in kimono. If you want to wear Japanese costume in Gion, I can arrange with extra charge. NIshiki market is the kitchen of the Kyoro, where local people buy their everyday food. Fish stores, vegetable stores, pickles stores and so on. A friend of mine owns a Yuba shop in the market. Yuba is vegan, dairy-free ,gluten free,preserve-free, additive-free and protein rich. You can see the yuba making process.

Why don't you make a one-day trip from Kyoto to Koka Ninja's hometown. Koka City is home of Ninja. Koka is a quiet, peaceful and beautiful rural town, and the best to go with a bicycle. You will feel the atmosphere of Ninja while riding through the heartland of Ninja. There is no tour to visit real Ninja places guided by a Ninja/local Samurai descendant who can speak English. You can experience a very unique tour from this.
