I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Chizuko. She was very knowledgeable about the landmarks and the interesting story that each had to offer. We spent the whole day travelling around Kyoto's main sights on public transportation. It was great covering so many spots and so efficiently. I definitely will return. Thanks!

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!

Great Tour, Chizuko San was dot on time at the Shinkansen platform waiting for us. She is very personable and fitted in in the five hour tour we asked for, what we wanted to do Fushimi Inari, Nijo jo Castle, Arashimaya, Kinkakuji and she wanted to do Gion to end the tour however we were too exhausted to continue, she seemed full of energy when none of us could walk any longer. We wanted to take taxi's And she was v cost conscious and tried her best to find a 5 seater taxi everywhere. Awesome person.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Divya, Thank you so much for your having me in Kyoto and posting heartwarming words here. I really appreciate them. I enjoyed myself with your family in this tour. I hope we will meet again soon! Thanks again! Chizuko

After taking our Kyoto Highlights tour with Chizuko we took another day tour to Nara with her, we started in Kyoto and had a fantastic trip, we first visit the Fushimi-Inari-Taisha Shrine and thereafter we enjoyed Nara with the fantastic Todaiji Temple with the famed Great Buddha ( Daibutsu) and the nearby Nara garden with the beautiful sight of so many holy deers wandering around. Chizuko is very knowledgeable and explained us all the history of the of the various sights. Overall we had a wonderful time

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Claudia, Thank you so much for taking my tours and posting feedback to them. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed our two days in Kyoto. I enjoyed myself with you as well. I am sure you had memorable time in the rest of your long journey. Take care and I hope we will meet again! Many thanks, Chizuko

Chizuko is a wonderful guide and a lovely and fun person! She was a perfect Japanese person for me to spend time with soon after my arrival in Japan. After her prompt arrival at my hotel, we reviewed our plans for the day and a half that we would be together and then we were off..... I loved the Imperial Palace, the Heian Shrine and the Museum of Folk Crafts, a museum that Chizuko particularly suggested we visit. She was knowledgeable and helpful at all times.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Claudia, Thank you so much for posting feedback to my tours. I am happy to hear from you again! I enjoyed our 4 hours in Kyoto. I was delighted we covered all sites you would like to visit and you looked happy. I hope we will meet again! Best regards, Chizuko

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

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

Chizuko is a great guide with a wry sense of humour, and we really enjoyed our tour in Kyoto with her. We had missed our train to Kyoto and were terribly late and flustered when we finally arrived. Chizuko had waited patiently and did not make us feel rushed in the least. Despite the shortened time, we were able to visit the two key areas of interest to us and, through her extensive knowledge, learn a great deal more of Japanese culture and history.

Chizuko was our tour guide. She guided us to the Fushimi Shrine and to the Arashiyama area where we walked through the bamboo forest. The tour continued to the Golden Temple and other sites in the city. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot of things that were beyond the obvious that she was able to point out and explain. We had difficulty communicating at times due to language issues (her level of English was conversational, not advanced), and her pace was slower than I wished.

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!

It was a rainy day in Kyoto when we took our tour to Arashiyama with guide Chizuko H., but we still had a wonderful time. She was friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that we were able to get a lot of great pictures in the bamboo forrest.

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.

Chizuko was a wonderful tour guide to have! Not only was she willing to adapt the tour to fit our schedule, but she was also very patient with us--especially when we were running late. She was also very friendly, and it was easy to ask her questions and make conversation with her. In fact, once we had told her which aspects of Japanese culture we were interested in, she made sure to point out related fun facts while we toured Kyoto together! I would definitely recommend her as a guide to Kyoto.

We (family of 2 adults and 2 kids-age 5 and 7) went on a comprehensive tour of Fushimi Inari Shrine and Nara. Chizuko navigated us through bus, taxi, and trains.

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 spent two days touring with Chizuko, one touring Kyoto and one going to Nara. She is a wonderful tour guide and a very nice lady. She got us to Nara, the Fushimi Inari Shrine and other places on subways and buses so we could see the most in a day. Her English is very good as she explained the history and culture of each wonderful place we visited. We had a terrific "locals only" lunch with her. She also taught my wife some Japanese and Chinese words and symbols as we travelled. Chizuko is great!

We were very fortunate to have Chizuko. She took us on a visit to the Inari Shrine in Kyoto. The other was a visit to a family-owned restaurant in the general area where we lunched on tasty okonomiyakis (Japanese pancakes). Chizuko speaks English quite well and she taught us many things about Japanese customs and culture. For us, she was both a tour guide and a friend and we enjoyed her companionship immensely. I recommend her highly for tourists who visit the Kyoto area

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.

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.

We had a really interesting tour with Chizuko and had a chance to learn more about the city and Japanese culture and history at the same time. She took us to the Nijo-jo Castle (Shogun Palace) and commented the tour with additional insights. We continued our tour to the Fushimi Inari Shrine but the rain started and we had to wait to see it. She took this waiting time to inform us about Gion and Geishas as it was supposed to be our next stop. Sadly the rain cut our tour short but it we enjoyed it!
