Very enjoyable day in Nara

Shin knows the Kyoto and Nara region very well and we spent a very enjoyable day travelling from Kyoto by train to Nara and then meandering our way through this historic city, visiting the deer parks, main temple and a beautiful shrine in the foothills. We wandered through the shopping and market area and visited a fascinating toy museum. We enjoyed every trip with Shin as our guide! Thank you, Hedi and Bruce.

Shin Y.

I am so glad to be able to guide you in Kyoto and Nara, blessed with good weather. And I am very happy that you liked the Japan you saw for the first time. Temples and shrines, Japanese gardens, Japanese food, Japanese sweets, and Japanese people. I will never forget this wonderful memory I had with you. Furthermore, we were able to see Mt.Fuji capped with silver snow on a clear day from the Shinkansen. It is said that the probability of seeing Mt.Fuji is just 30%. We were very lucky travelers. I wish you happiness and good health from Japan. Thank you very much. Hedi-san and Bruce-san. Shin.

Tokyo Up-to-You Tour

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see. We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests. (The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.) Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.
