The private tour I chose with Katsuko was wonderful. I came to Japan during late November to experience the gorgeous autumn color and depended on her to select the best spots. She didn't disappoint. We visited two temples near one another and the maples were at peak. The colors were breathtaking. Katsuko met us at our hotel and took us via the public subway, which was an adventure, too. She was quite knowledgeable about the temples, patient with our endless photos, and her English was superb. Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ellen, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was really nice meeting you and I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. We were so lucky to see autumn color at its peak. I hope to see you again sometime in the future, probably during cherry blossom season next time. Best wishes, Katsuko O.

It was a pleasure to have met Miss Katsuko in my very rushed and short trip to Kyoto. Her knowledge and insight on airport transfer, public transport, locations of hotel (relative to tourist spots) was unbelievable. Her planning of my half day trip was spot on and even prior to that, the email communication between us was prompt. Great experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hong, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was really nice meeting you. I enjoyed the conversation with you about various topics and especially about Buddhism was lots of learning for me. I hope you'll have a safe trip back home and hope to see you again sometime in the future. Best Wishes, Katsuko O.

Katsuko tailored our tour perfectly to our tastes and personality. Our lunch at a Zen Temple was an additional bonus that just added to a magical day allowing us to immerse ourselves in all that is Kyoto. Arigatō gozaimashita Katsuko

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathryn, Thank you very much for your kind review. It was so lovely meeting you, and I'm pleased to know that you enjoyed the day and the lunch at a Zen temple.

Katsuko was very knowledgeable about Kyoto, and the areas we visited. Our train stopped midway to our meet-up destination because of the Earthquake, yet we remained in contact, and she waited for us to arrive in Kyoto to start our tour. She made a good suggestion for our lunch, where we were able to get to know each other. She was also able to help us find the only train that was running, so that we could return to Osaka. Thank you for a wonderful tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stefanie, Thank you very much for your kind review. Also thank you for the effort you made to come to Kyoto, in spite of the difficulties due to the earthquake. I'll always remember the day with you and your husband. Warmest Regards, Katsuko O. P.S. I found the macadamia nuts very yummy!
