Chizuko is friendly, capable, and agreeable. We had a great day together in Nara. Chizuko navigated all the transportation without any issues, saving us tremendous time. She is also very knowledgeable of history and culture. Recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you for taking my tour yesterday and posting feedback with five stars. I really appreciate it. I enjoyed conversation with you and your lovely wife. I hope you will come back again! Many thanks, Chizuko
Wir haben zusammen mit Chizuko einen spannenden Tag in und um Nara verbracht. Sie verfügt über ein grosses historisches Wissen und ging auf unsere Bedürfnisse ein. Neben dem Big Buddha (todaiji temple) und den dazugehörenden Hirschen haben wir den schönen Kasuga shrine sowie nach dem Lunch noch sub Horyuji temple besucht. Der letztere ist das älteste Holzgebäude auf der Welt und erstaunlicherweise kein touristisches Magnet, obwohl sehr schön gemacht. Danke Chizuko für die tolle Führung.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrea, Thank you for taking my tour and posting feedback! I am more than happy to receive such a nice comment. I enjoyed myself with you and your husband. You are so enthusiastic about Japanese culture and seemed enjoying scenic landscape in an ancient city Nara. I hope we will meet again! Many thanks, Chizuko

Chizuko was an excellent guide, knowledgeable, and a good companion. We traveled by public transportation to Nara; walked miles through parks touring shrines and temples, and visiting sites of historical and religious importance. And as an added treat, back in Kyoto, we visited the Fushimi Inari Shrine. Nara is a must see, and I recommend Chizuko as your guide.

4.5 stars! Lovely guide & very flexible dealing with our large group in the extreme heat and humidity. We ended up skipping Nara because of the hat and instead visited more sites in Kyoto. She was able to make adjustments on the fly. She was a wealth of information but we did find her to be a bit shy & we sometimes wondered what we might be missing by not always knowing the right questions to ask. I felt that this was likely a cultural difference. Would happily hire again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dbra, Thank you for your feedback and high rating. I was happy to be your guide for the two days. I hope we will meet again! Many thanks, Chizuko
Robert BrackenUnited States
Chizuko is an excellent guide. She was punctual, knowledgeable about historical and religious history, and provided succinct responses to our many questions. Her tour covered several religious shrines; one of the edge of Kyoto and the others in Nara proper. A group of six was moved on public transit through large crowds and walked quite a bit and learned a great deal about the importance of Nara. All felt Chizuko provided an informative tour and was a person with whom we enjoyed spending our day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Thank you for your warm comments and five stars. We could proceed the tour smoothly with your cooperation, and as you are New yorkers! I enjoyed myself with your group in this tour. I hope we will meet again. Many thanks, Chizuko

Chizuko was an excellent guide and very helpful not only on the tour but also for helping us with a lost item she was able to track down for us. Chizuko's English is very good and we highly recommend her.

Elizabeth B.United States
We spent a delightful day in Nara with Chizuko who has an incredible knowledge of Japanese history and culture. She answered every question we asked in detail, including dates. We were able to cover a lot of ground mainly due to her knowledge of the city and the best way to get to the sites. She is a conscientious guide who plans her tours well. We highly recommend her to everyone who want an excellent tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, Thank you for your feedback and five stars to my tour. I enjoyed Nara tour with you as well. I hope we will meet again soon! Many thanks, Chizuko

Chizuko is very good, bring us to many places at the right time, so we can avoid the large crowds that make it easier to see things and to take a lot of pictures easier without waiting too long.

Chizuko-san is very knowledgeable about various attractions in Nara which are full of historical, cultural and religious info. We are thankful that she tailored-made our itinerary by including our request on Daigoji Temple which we were delighted to visit on our way back to Kyoto. Our tour of Nara and Daigoji Temple were great!

Nadav SelaUnited States
We enjoyed the tour to Nara very much. Chizuko San is a great guide and a great person! The tour was very informative and interesting and we also talked about many other things, from Maiko hairstyles to Zen Budhism. As we had a whole day, we asked Chizuko San if she could take us to a place of her choice in Kyoto. She chose Arashiyama. What a great choice! The temple grounds are breath taking and so is the bamboo forest. We highly recommend Chizuko San! Thank you Chizuko San for a wonderful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nadav, Thank you for your quick feedback and comments. I really appreciate your heartwarming words. I enjoyed our journey of Nara and Arashiyama with you, as I could tell you were pleased to see nature of our old capitals. Next time I will teach how to make Sushi and Miso soup. I am looking forward to meeting with you again. Best regards, Chizuko
We had a very nice tour with Chizuko today. She is a professional guide with good knowledge of Kyoto area and a nice and welcoming style. She answered all out doubts and gave us appropriate information in each location. I may also highlight that we asked her for a last minute change in itinerary and she handled it very well. I strongly recommend her as a guide to Kyoto. best regards C.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cesar, Thank you for your quick feedback and the highest rating to my tour. I am really pleased to hear such nice comments from you. I believe you will enjoy the rest of your journey. Best regards, Chizuko
We spent a lovely day with Chizuko. She guided us to two very separate locations in Nara, not once hurrying us despite weather delaying travel and our shopping requests. She answered our questions patiently and was informative where needed . We recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela, Thank you so much for posting feedback to my tour. I am more than happy to hear that. I enjoyed myself with your group. I hope you will be back to Japan and I will show you around again. Thank you again. Chizuko
William BrakeUnited States
Chizuko san was an exceptional tour guide, she has a vast knowledge of cultural significance of the rich history within the area (Kyoto and surrounding areas), she gave an amazing tour all around and even showed us a few areas not on the original plan. Her willingness to educate us in local history, and Japanese History (such as the Kanji lesson we received on the train) made her tour even more special. I give my strongest recommendation to anyone considering to tour the area to pick Chizuko san.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William, Thank you for sending feedback and rating so quickly. I am more than happy to receive such nice comments from you. I appreciate the time to share with you. I do hope we will meet again! Many thanks, Chizuko
