Great and interesting off the beaten path tour. Ken knows the area and can show you some great places that aren't populated with tourists. It's much recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for choosing my tour! Hope you had great days in Japan.
Ken was a fabulous guide, we learnt so much about history, religion and culture that we wouldn't have learnt if we simply visited the shrines ourselves. He also introduced us to a great local eatery and delicious okonomikayi. Would definitely him to friends visiting Japan and Kyoto.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Helen. I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed my tour.
We've had our tour on September 4th, excellent and Kentaro is a great guide. In addition to the tour, he gave us some great tips about what to see and where to eat out in Kyoto. Very helpful!

Ken gave a great tour of Gion. We learned all about the area history and the Geisha tradition as we walked down the back alleys and passed the various Geisha Houses. We spotted several geisha on their way to evening performances. Ken also mixed in some local food along our walk. We finished with him at an excellent local restaurant (about 10 seats total), Okonomiyaki. Plenty of walking but not too far. Ken is very personable and his charm is what makes ToursByLocals such a great way to enjoy new places.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for coming Chris. I’m very glad to hear you enjoyed and learned a lot. If you come back to Japan again, please let me know again and next time we could do different place to explore!
