Yoriko did a wonderful tour for us and everything worked like clockwork. We have some physical limitations and didn't want to walk any more then necessary so she arrange a great private driver for us with a very comfortable vehicle. We enjoyed our day in Koyoto and would highly recommend Yoriko.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pauline, Thank you so much for wonderful comment. I am really glad you enjoyed a day with me. I also enjoyed your company. Thank you for visiting us. Bon voyage! With love, Yoriko

Yoriko is excellent. We had a wonderful and very educational tour of Kyoto. Yoriko met our train from Tokyo, we bought a 600Y one-day subway pass and we were off to several World Heritage sites in this incredibly historical city. Yoriko is very knowledgeable, her English is excellent and it was our pleasure and good fortune to spend the day with her. Don't wait to book your tour with Yoriko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael and Jose, Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I am so glad and proud as a tour guide for you. I enjoyed your company and I am looking forward to welcoming you again. Thank you for visiting Japan. Sincerely, Yoriko

We had a wonderful, jam-packed day with Yoriko. She was incredibly knowledgeable about Kyoto history and what's happening in the city. We did her tour off of a cruise ship which docked late, quite worried that we wouldn't make it to the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji) in time, but just made it! Yoriko gave us a fast but detailed tour. She also recommended taking a unplanned tour at a nearby castle which was a great surprise! Also found an amazing hole-in-the-wall restaurant! Best Kyoto day imaginable! Thanks!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joseph, Thank you for giving me such wonderful comment. I am very glad we have a great time in Kyoto and Osaka. Especially Golden Pavilion - highlight of your trip to Kyoto. It was quite thrilling to slide into the temple last minute, though. Thank you for visiting us! Sincerely yours, Yoriko

Yoriko planned a very informative and interesting tour of some of the lesser known temples in Kyoto dedicated to members of the 47 Ronin, and then a visit to a private garden where the family had built 2 water harps over many generations. She is a wonderful guide and I highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill and Amanda, Thank you for wonderful comment. I am very gald that you enjoyed a day with me visiting 47Ronin related places and a cozy private garden. Sincerely, Yoriko

Yoriko organised a great tour for my parents and I. We asked for something a bit different as we had visited Japan many times. Yoriko took us to a private garden that was really special. She also organised a private car for us as my parents couldn't walk too far. The driver was amazing and even drove us up what looked like walking tracks so we could get as close to the entry to the gardens as possible. This made it so much easier for my parents. Yoriko's knowledge was great. Thank you

We visited with her some of the most remarkable places but we also got out of the bitten path. She also kindly helped us to plan the rest of our days in Kioto and Osaka. It was an excellent day!

Yoriko was great. As I said in my other review, my family is high maintenance and she too was patient and understanding. She took us to the cool sites in Osaka and Kyoto, was kind enough to coordinate with a friend of mine from Japan so that we could all meet up at the end of the day and see the Golden Palace in Kyoto together, and was happy to help with the bunch of questions I had while preparing for the trip. I highly recommend her.

On our second trip to Kyoto with Yoriko, she provided a carefully planned excursion to 2 sites about 1 hour away. We visted Daichi-ji gardens which are unique and beautifully scupltured in a park and pond setting. They are beautiful and provided some of our best photographs. Then we visited an authentic Ninja residence and museum. It is totally authentic and is a drawcard for school children and curious visitors alike. Yoriko is good company, knowledgeable and interested. She is the perfect tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill, Thank you very much for your wonderful comment. It is my great pleasure that you and David enjoyed our trip to Koka City with beautiful scene of countryside and Ninja. I also appreciate your understanding of our culture. Hope to serve you again. Sincerely, Yoriko

With the three days we spent with Yoriko touring around Osaka, Kyoto and Nara, we enjoyed every single moment with her. She was very flexible with our schedules - customizing it in a way that we were able to do and see exactly what we wanted. The best part for us was probably the restaurants she brought us to. The restaurants were very delicious and authentic. To sum it all up, Yoriko was a gracious and wonderful tour guide. Our trip was enjoyable and memorable because of her efforts.

Yoriko was an amazing guide . She knows a lot of history, knows the area and I could tell she did a lot of prework. She listened and tailored the tour to geisha, samari, and ninjas. She even found a ninja restaurant that will be one of the highlights of our trip. She was very understanding of my two boys ages 6 and 9 and helped keep their interest and share the beautiful area and history. Now we want to come back and will contact her again. Thank you. Unforgettable.

Yoriko went to a lot of trouble to locate and book unique gardens for us to visit . She had researched the histories and families involved in the homes and was able to provide helpful and entertaining information about the gardens. She also interspersed the tour with a running history of the "47 Ronin" which was fascinating. Yoriko is a valuable asset of your company and excellent value for money for a walking tour.

Kyoto is beautiful city with much history. You need a knowledgeable guide to enjoy the full flavor of the history. Yoriko was such a guide that provided us with insight on the major points. She went out of her way to book us a Geisha show which further enhanced the mood of ancient Kyoto for us. She assisted with everything that we needed. Her language skills are excellent and she has that "can do attitude". We highly recommend her for those who need an English speaking guide.

We had a wonderful day in Kyoto with Yoriko. She is very knowledgable, professional and sensitive. She went out of her way to pick us up at the pier in Kobe to accompany us to Kyoto knowing that we were anxious about traveling on the train alone. She made every effort to make sure we were enjoying our day. She took us to a noodle restaurant for lunch and made sure to communicate our wishes to the waiter. The four of us had a great day because of Yoriko. We would give her the highest rating possible.
