Yoshiro is a fantastic guide who offered us great historical knowledge blended with cultural lessons. He tailored the day to our needs, so we received a tour of temples, shrines, and walking the streets of Gion in Kyoto. We highly recommend him and we were also grateful for Yoshiro's caring and kindness.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful comment. Due to the missing hotel shuttle bus, we chose the completely different route. So I am really happy that you said like that. And thank you for showing consideration for me during the tour.

Yoshiro is a great guide!! He is very king and he knows everything about Kyoto, every temple, shrine or street, everything about the culture and the history of Japan. We had a really beautiful day visiting many places. We truly recommend Yoshiro!! Thank you very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for praising me. I was surprised at your smart kids. When I was in their age, I did not show any interest in cultures so much like them. Due to your consideration for others, I spent a nice day. Thank you again.

This was the best tour I have ever experienced. We only had one day to see many sights and Yoshiro made that possible in a very organized, informative, and interesting manner. He should be your number one tour guide!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your histest compliment. Since you know a lot about Japan, I am really glad of your comment. Thank you very much.

My sister and I had a great time walking around Kyoto with Yoshiro! He was very informative and we learned some interesting things. He was flexible and offered to take pictures. He knew so many great restaurants and the top places to eat! Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Kyoto, Yoshiro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your favorable review. Actually we walked a lot, yet there are many other World Heritage site in Kyoto. So please visit Kyoto again with your sister. I wish you continue success and health. Thank you again.

Yoshiro was the perfect guide! He is very familiar with the city and is willing to tweak the tour however you like to make sure you get the tour you want. We loved walking through all the different side streets and he had great recommendations regarding the best places to purchase genuine souvenirs (many off the beaten path). He also had a ton of different food recommendations around Kyoto that were super helpful. My husband and I both really enjoyed our experience and would wholeheartedly recommend him!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice reference, Stephanie. I also enjoyed the tour due to the warmhearted character of both of you. I also felt relieved that you could find such a nice genuine kimomo. That kimono really suits you well. I hope that you will enjoy Japan more. Thank you again, arigatougozaimashita, and matane,too.
