Excellent! We highly recommend this tour. Masaki San showed us Nara during a one day tour. He picked us up at our hotel in Kyoto and together we took the train to Nara. Being a former teacher in history the tour was even more interesting. Very patient, very kind he even showed us the dubious natto in a supermarket. After a long day full of historical insights, we ended up in a typical Izakaya were we sampled local pub food and different sake. Fun indeed! Arigatōgozaimashita and greetings from Switzerland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sandrine, Thank you for sending a good message. Glad to hear that you and your mother are doing well after coming back. How about spending two weeks in Japan? I think dreamy days went by so quickly. Nothing gives me more exciting, thrilling pleasure than the first experiences. Izakaya dinner was an unforgettable memory for me. Thank you for wonderful memories. Please say hello to your mom.

What a great experience! Masaki San was the perfect guide and helpful in every way from guiding me thru the tours with an abundance of historical knowledge on every topic along the way and taking the time to explain the historical significance at each site as well as it's importance in today's society. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about each subject but he went out of his way to ensure that I would be able to find my way around Nara and Kyoto by providing all the train and bus info I required.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello John, Did you come back home safely. It was only one day encounter for us. But I think we had a good friendship, spending ancient time together in Nara. Remember you are not alone. You are related to each other in this world. Practice the breathing method and meditation if you have time. Hope to see you again.

I cannot say enough nice things about Masaki! My family and I booked him while our cruise ship was docked for the day. From the first email, he was great in helping us decide on the best things for us to do on our limited time in Kyoto. We spent a very fun day together learning so much about Japanese culture and the Kyoto area. We were lucky enough to be there during the beautiful cherry blossom season, and he knew the perfect spots to take us to enjoy them! I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you fro a warm message. Cherry blossoms came earlier than usual. You were very lucky to be surrounded by beautiful flowers. Arashiyama Tenryuji is very famous, the best season around this time of the year. This time we walk the westside of Kyoto. The eastern Kyoto miss you. Hope to see you again. Hope God blesses you.
