Mitsuyuki N.

Kishiwada City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan

I had been working as an English-speaking taxi driver in Kyoto for about 4 years from March 2012 to May 2016.

During that time I guided many visitors from abroad around Kyoto. In June 2016 I decided to quit working as a taxi driver and become a self-employed English tour guide. As I'm a licensed English tour guide and a professional driver, I can guide visitors from abroad around Kyoto, Nara, and other places in my car. 6 passengers maximum. English guiding is 4, 000 yen/hour. No extra charge for carfare. As I'm not a taxi driver, I cannot receive any money for carfare. I will take you anywhere you like in my car mainly in the Kansai Region.

A Recent Review of this guide

Mitsuyuki was an excellent guide. He communicated clearly pick up times and organised a day based on places I requested to visit. His driving was excellent and travel by his air conditioned car made the heat of July bearable. He took great care in researching a fantastic restaurant to visit in the Arashiyama area for my 12 year old daughter who is vegetarian. It was off the tourist trail and absolutely delightful. The day was better than I had anticipated. Melissa Nicholson Sydney, Australia
