Shingo is an absolutely fantastic guide—so knowledgeable (he taught us a lot about Japanese history and culture), attentive to our interests and needs, and just a lovely person to spend time with. Our entire family really enjoyed spending the day with Shingo!

Thank you Miki! We had a wonderful tour with Miki in January. She customized our trip and was very attentive to our requests. She was an excellent communicator, and we enjoyed spending the day with her learning about Kyoto.

Fantastic tour with Kenya who ensured we saw the must-visits but also was able to customise and flex the tour so it was right for us. Kenya was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly - highly recommend !
