We had a most enjoyable and memorable day with Takaaki who was absolutely professional and serious in what he did. He was knowledgeable and passionate about the history and background of the places he took us to visit. He was pleasant, courteous and spontaneous. Above all, he was most accommodating with what we needed. In fact, he's one of the few good guides we've come across in the last 30 years. I would give him a rating of 5 out of 5.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Ariana! It’s very rewarding to hear compliments from my guests. I always give 100% energy to every guest during the tours! Next time you are around Kyoto, I’ll suggest some traditional course meal “Kaisei” for you :)
