Chizuko met us at the train station for a private customized tour of western Kyoto and Gion. Chizuko is very knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful. Pace was just right - not rushed at all. Chizuko's English is good. I learned a lot about the Gion district, the Geikos, Maikos, from Chizuko. We were very lucky to see the Maikos on their way to work. (This is my 2nd tour with Chizuko). Thank you Chizuko!

We had the pleasure of having Chizuko as our Guide for this Kyoto Highlight Tour and what an amazing experience , we learned so much about Kyoto and she managed to fit in as much as possible in one day. We visited some of the most important places by using public transport which was a lot of fun, she is very knowledgeable on the history of the various sites and Japan. We also enjoyed a very interesting introduction to the Gion Area which was fantastic. We highly recommend Chizuko as a Guide in Kyoto.

I had a second very full and wonderful day with Chizuko! I loved our time at the Raku Museum, seeing the Bamboo Forest and the extended time that we spent in the traditional Gion Quarter of Kyoto. She knew alot about this neighborhood and about the Geisha culture. We walked a great distance but had a delicious lunch at what must be one of Chizuko's favorite restaurants frequented by locals. And we were warmly welcomed. Chizuko did her best to bring Traditional Japan to life for me.

Although she is very well dispose to help and to give explanation, she does not speaks that well english and some time the lack of fluency affected the explanation and we missed crucial information.

4.5 stars! Lovely guide & very flexible dealing with our large group in the extreme heat and humidity. She was able to make adjustments on the fly. Chizuko knew her way around & came prepared with our one day busy passes so that we could get right to sightseeing. 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 Debra, Thank you for taking my tours and posting feedback. I strongly hope we will see again in different seasons. Best regards, Chizuko

We had Chizuko as a guide for our day in Kyoto. She was fantastic and a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable with very good English and a rich knowledge of Japanese shogun history. She was very eager to help and was extremely friendly and made sure all our questions were answered well and requested were met. We had minimal time in Kyoto and she enhanced our tour of Kyoto and left nothing to our imagination. I would recommend anyone coming to Kyoto to have Chizuko be their tour guide. She truly is wonderful

We were lucky. On the day of arriving we came across Chizuko's agenda and she was fully booked except for the next day. Perfect! We met at our hotel next and we took of immediately. She showed us some of the nicest places in Kyoto explaining history, function etc. Altough temperature was very high she kept going. Friendly, helpful, understanding.

We had a great time with Chizuko as she took us around many of the major sites in Kyoto for our first visit here. She's very knowledgeable about both the historical and cultural significance of the palaces and shrines we visited and shared that knowledge in a very thoughtful and easy to understand fashion. And she also gave us insight into what it's like to be a native Kyoto resident. We were very happy to have her as our guide and would recommend her without hesitation!

This was a great private tour of Kyoto. Chizuko worked with us to adjust the tour on the fly to our preferences and offered suggestions for additional sights that were near the top sites on our list. Her knowledge of the area and its history were invaluable to us since we only had one day in Kyoto and we wanted to see as many of the top sites as we could and she delivered more of a tour than I had hoped for. I highly recommend Chizuko.

If we are ever back in Kyoto, which we hope to be back as soon as possible, we will undoubtedly hope that Chizuko is available. Thank you so much for making our trip extra special!

Scizuko was excellent guide, professional, polite, caring and knowledgeable. She answered our questions and showed us beautiful Shinto and Buddhist temples. She did not hurry us as we took our time taking pictures and enjoying the scenery. She took photos of us both. We ended in Gion where my wife wore a kimono and pictures were taken with cherry blossoms in full bloom. We had lunch at a quiet Resturant with good food I highly recommend Scizuko and will definitely ask for her again when we come back

Chizuko was an amazing guide. In just one day we went all over Kyoto, hitting all the highlights. She really knew the bus lines so everything was efficient and we made the most use of our limited time. Chizuko could answer even the most obscure historical questions and was a delight to be with. Lunch was delicious and affordable. We even saw a Maiko (apprentice Geisha) in Gion which is a rare sighting. We would highly recommend her!

Three of our party were new to Kyoto and one had been before- Chizuko gave us all a wonderful day and many of the things she taught us as we explored made not only the time in Kyoto better but the rest of our time in Japan- it allowed us to get so much more out of all the shrines and historical places we visited- very grateful and would totally recommend.

Great way to see some highlights along with valuable insights into Kyoto and it's culture. Chizuoka was knowledgable and friendly and we had a great lunch stop after visiting the Inari Shrine and Arashiyama. We then moved on to the Imperil Palace and finished with a stroll around the famous and also less well known streets of Gion. Highly recommend you organise a day tour with Chizuko.

Chizuko was a wonderful guide for our family in Kyoto. She was able to explain Japanese culture, history and all about all the sights she took us to. Chizuko was more than happy to either organise our whole day or to have the day planned by what we wanted to do. She took us to a wonderfully delicious local restaurant for lunch, interacted with the kids and made origami, and she taught us all about the temples, shrines and castles we visited. Thank you so much for a fascinating and wonderful day. A+++++

We only had 2 days in Kyoto, and as we wanted to see as much as possible, we booked a guide - we RECOMMEND others to do the same. Not only did we see all the attractions we wanted, our guide also told us about Japenese traditions and historical facts - things that we could not get to know ourselves. We had a few things on our "bucket list" and Chizuko "picked" the rest. Chizuko, was the best guide; everything was on time, she had preparred maps, bus cards etc. and she took us to local restaurants.

Chizuko was a friendly and very knowledgable guide, who knows Kyoto very well having lived there her whole life. We were able to see many of the main sights across the city, and we covered much more ground with Chizuko than we could have by ourselves. She helped us to use the local buses which are excellent and often quicker than the metro. For 500 Yen a day the bus pass is great value! The lunch stop was fantastic and such good value! We would happily recommend Chizuko to anybody touring Kyoto.

Chizuko is an outstanding guide. Her English is excellent. She is exceptionally organized (buying bus tickets ahead of time for us, for example). She could sense when we wanted to know more, or less, about a topic, and she adjusted her narration and itinerary to suit us. We've used guides many times, and sometimes it's felt intrusive to have another person along. Not with Chizuko; she is very personable, friendly, and down to earth. We would highly recommend her.

We had some time left at the end of the day and she took us the Gion area and educated us about the teahouses in the area. It was a great day! I would highly recommend her. Her pace is also comfortable and yet we saw alot of sites.

This tour was the BEST and one of my favorite days spent while in Japan for a 9 day trip. I can't say enough good things about Chizuko either - we had such a good time walking around with her, and she was so knowledgeable and had answers to everything. She seamlessly took us to all the highlights in Kyoto we wanted to see and each stunned. There is no way we could have covered that much ground on our own, or gotten so much history. This is the first thing I would recommend to someone visiting Kyoto.

Chizuko was awesome! We went to the lobby of our hotel and she somehow picked us out of the crowd and asked us a few questions about what we wanted to do/see - our interests and what we had already seen. Off we went. She filled our day with the cultural and historic sights we were hoping for. Navigated the city flawlessly, was engaging and made us feel very comfortable. By day's end, she was more of a close friend than a guide.

We had the most wonderful day with Chizuko and would give her the highest recommendation. The trip was perfectly organised, and we could not have planned this itinerary by ourselves . We visited four of Kyoto's major attractions - a fort and three temples and gardens - and ended with a walk round the geisha quarter. Chizuko's knowledge did not just cover the broad picture - there was so much intriguing and detailed information which we could never have discovered for ourselves, or from a guide book.
