TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jack san, Thank you for your having me as your guide. I hope you had a good rest after the tour. Chatting with you was fun to me. Please enjoy the rest of the days in Japan!! During the daytime, it is warm but at night, it becomes cooler. Please don't get a cold gain!

Excellent 2 day private tour. Tomoko's historical knowledge is very entertaining. She knows the official facts and all the little spicy stories which makes a good legend. Her English is very good and she organized for us some superb restaurant visits. Very recommendable guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marco, Thank you very much for having me as your guide. I did the best and I hope you enjoyed very much. As you told me that you like history, I added the little more story behind the scene. I hope you also enjoyed the second day's dinner (Kyoto cuisine)

Tomoko was WONDERFUL! She is very friendly, kind and knowledgeable. Her itinerary was well planned and organized, and Tomoko was able to both guide us as well as be flexible / respond to our interests and needs. We had a full day tour of Kyoto our second day in Japan, and it was the perfect introduction to this beautiful country and it's traditions. We traveled by bus which gave us the confidence to continue to navigate public transportation on our own. Even our teenagers loved the full day tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynne Thank you for your having me as your guide and I am very happy to find you enjoyed the tour with me. Ohara is also my favorite place. It has different atmosphere from Kyoto. And I was very surprised to come across you at Nishiki food market And I was very happy to know you enjoyed Ramen lunch too!! I hope the travel to Japan will stay in your memories !

Tomoko changed her itinerary last minute for me as I didn't want to go to the crowded places being it the Golden Week. We rode the bus and it was great for me. Saw Ohara and the gardens. We had a lovely lunch. She even was so knowledgeable about things like where to eat and what to do. I loved my day with her. All done in a very Japanese calm manner. I recommend her absolutely,

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Fatti san. Thank you for posting the tour review. I am now wondering which indigo Shibori was the best... I also had a great time sharing the time with you. Please come again in Autumn, the colored maple season!
