We really enjoyed how Makoon could quickly adapt to our interests in needs on such short notice and keep us entertained all the while. This was represented by everything from showing up early because we showed up early to helping us understand little details for all the omiyage we bought. Since Makoon lives in Kyoto, his perspective and understanding of the city is very valuable if you are interested like we are on what life really is like for a Kyoto local. Thank you Makoon for spending so much effort!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's really an honor to receive your kind words. I'm really happy that our tour was a success! We experienced various local life, the modern / traditional / casual / classy.. various different perspectives. Thank you again for showing to respect to Japanese culture and history, and listening to and sharing opinions about Japan. I, too, learned a lot from our conversation. Sincerely looking forward to seeing you again. Warm Regards, Masaki
