Very knowledgeable , so thoughtful, the feeling of knowing when you say something or not and off course a very healthy dose of humor and perspective .Thank you once again! Highly recommended!!!

Kanako was a joy to spend time with. More than just a depository for the facts and figures of Osaka and Nara she brought the numbers and history to life through her story telling and even recited a relevant Haiku about the areas ancient rulers, try to get that from Wikipedia.. Dave N

Kanako is a fantastic guide : she is knowledgeable, flexible, generous and speaks excellent English. She is very adaptable so if you are not sure exactly what you want to do, or if you do not want to do specific things (eg have difficulty with steps, or like me want to do a lot of walking) she can make your day fit around this while still seeing and learning a lot. Thank you for a brilliant day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for such a kind feedback. I learnt a lot from spending a wonderful day with you. I hope to see you again and hope to find you better cheese cake!

Date: Oct 20/19

Kanako was a wonderful guide. Knowledgeable, considerate, and fun to be with. She was unbelievably helpful when I lost my cell phone in the ladies room and amazingly retrieved it for me. She also had wonderful suggestions which made our time in Osaka most interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a lovely day in Osaka and Nara! I am happy that you enjoyed the day with me. We were lucky to retrieve that phone because you were also very fast to notice:) Thank you again for the amazing day!

Date: Oct 16/19

Kanako is the best English speaking guide you could wish to meet. She is a great person with a bright personality and sense of humour. More importantly, she knows her stuff and the history of Kyoto's sites. Our whole trip was made easy and she adapted the tour to get best value away from the crowds, showing us her personal favourite spots away from the crowds. Booking Kanako will be the best decision you could make if you want to really experience Kyoto.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again for spending two days with me in Kyoto♡ And Writing 2 reviews for me. I hope you enjoyed the fancy dinner on the following day and had a pleasant trip back home and doing that fence arrangement. I hope to see you again!

A wonderful 2 days in Kyoto. Traveling with Kanako is like traveling with an old friend. She is attentive, knowledgeable, well travelled, has excellent English and a great sense of humour. She guided us, offered recommendations to avoid the crowds and produced a flexible itinerary to meet our needs perfectly. All the food recommendations met the mood of the trip and she had some great little tricks for getting the best photos of the sites and Geiko. Cheryl and I would wholeheartedly recommend Kanako.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David-san and Cheryl-san, Thank you sooo much for your lovely comments! I am so touched. Thank you for treating me like your old friend! That was wonderful meeting you!!! Your super sense of humour inspire me a lot! Many thanks, again.
