Tadashi-san was awesome! He explained the history and "fun facts" about the places we visited. We had a full itinerary of places we wanted to visit, including a restaurant called Shoraian where we all had lunch. Because lunch would take a long time, he explained at the start of the tour that we weren't able to visit the Suirokaku Aqueduct which was on our list. He surprised us and squeezed in the Aqueduct AND Gion before the end of the tour! This tour was the highlight of our Kyoto trip. Arigato Tadashi!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You so much for your comment !!! I just tried my best ever . I always try to do what for my guest's satisfaction . Thank you so much again !!!

Tadashi was very good. I told him what we wanted to do and he staged it out perfectly ending up at the Golden temple at the perfect time of day to get the best light. He knows his history; he taught us a lot about the culture of the people in Kyoto, the ties between shintoism and the various temples, and he has a good sense of humor. We enjoyed his company and he did a great job marshaling the family around and took us on paths that were beautiful and only a local would know about. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments !!! I will work and study more !!! Thank you so so so much again !!!

As our first day in Kyoto, Tadashi gave us a very profesional tour that provided my family a lot of knowledge about the city. Tadashi did a great job by giving us a very detailed explanation about all of the sites we visited. He also did a great job on monuvering us through the city in a very efficient way. Tadashi knew his way around the city and chose a great local restaurant for lunch. We appreciate everything he did for us and we would definitely recommend him for any first timers in Kyoto.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review !!! I am so glad read your review . I will try my best ever before !!! Thank you so much !!!

Tadashi K is an extremely knowledgeable guide. He gave us time on our own and arranged pickups and drop offs with his own vehicle. He provided umbrellas for the rain and made sure we saw all of the popular Kyoto sites even though the weather was uncooperative. He chose a restaurant for lunch based on our preferences. He made sure we were well taken care of with his polite demeanor and caring attitude. He also was able to answer all of our questions about anything related to our tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your the most kindness comment of me . I will study more and looking and walking for something in Kyoto . Thank you so much again !!!

Had a very nice day with Tadashi while visiting Kyoto. He had an excellent itinerary planned for us and we were able to cover all the main sights of this beautiful city. His knowledge of the city was superb and use of public transit/taxis was so efficient. We would not have been able to cover so much ground on our own. I would highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You so much !!! I will try my best more ever !!! Thank you so much for comment !!!

We had an excellent experience with Tadashi and would highly recommend him. My husband and I and our two children (aged 6 and 4 years old) spent 2 days with Tadashi visiting places in Kyoto and Nara. Tadashi tailored the tour to our requirements and even during the tour itself he was very flexible, which was great given the unpredictability of the children! Tadashi was very knowledgeable and was lovely company. The use of his van was a definite bonus too! Thank you Tadashi!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the most kindness comment from you ! I could spend very enjoyable time with your children . Thank you so much again and please come again!

I wish I could give him 10 Stars! Really one of the best tours I've had! We learned SO much & had a perfect day! He is a Kyoto expert! His car was roomy & immaculate! We hit so many major sites, he had wonderful information as a Kyoto native & shared wonderful tips & trivia all day! He was funny, kind & interesting! I only wish we could have done 2 full days with him! He made each site visit more valuable with his knowledge & experience. The funniest surprise, he lived in the Bay Area (CA) right by us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You so so so so Much !!! I could enjoy full one day !!!! I wish I could take you restaurants and bars in Kyoto at the somewhere in hiding !!! Thak you so much !!!

We had a great tour with Tadashi! He let us customize our itinerary and pick everything we wanted to see on our four-hour tour, and he made sure we fit everything in! He kept us moving at a good pace, but also made sure we had time to stop for coffee and souvenir shopping, and pointed out so many interesting things that we totally would have missed without him! We'd definitely recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Katelyn Allen Thank you so much for your comment . I appreciated so much . I was very sorry for you that you could not take a lunch . I will try to study more and work harder more for my guest . Thank you so much !!! Sincerely Yours Tadashi K.

Tadashi-san was perfectly on time for our one-day tour of Kyoto (we specified the sights we wanted to see beforehand), and he was quite friendly and informative in giving historical details regarding the different places we saw. His vehicle was impeccably clean; and we had a great time conversing with him and were extremely satisfied with his services. Will recommend him definitely.

Tadashi gave us a great tour of Kyoto! He was able to show us a great deal in the short time we had on both our days in Kyoto including many beautiful temples and shrines. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. He gave us very useful and important information regarding our travel on the trains in Japan and even helped us make our train travel plans to leave the area. He accommodated our tight schedule and spent extra time with us on both our days touring with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much again !!! Yes It was very tight schedule but we could make it . I hope you could spend good and reasonable time in Japan . Please come to Japan in winter season and visit snow resort and hot springs area . Thank you so much for your comments again !
