We spent a day this past January touring Kyoto with Nobu.
This was truly one of the most memorable days we spent in Japan.
Nobu was kind and open, and helped to craft the tour around our areas of interest.
He even adapted throughout the day so we could learn more about things that we found compelling along the way.
It seems that there is no subject that is out of reach for Nobu!
He is deeply knowledgeable about history, art, culture, religion, even gardening and landscaping.
We visited a mix of sites, from very famous locations to tiny, seemingly secret gardens and temples around Kyoto. From a practical side, Nobu was very organized, communicated promptly over email, picked us up at our ryokan, spoke English well, and was enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge.
I wholeheartedly recommend this tour and Nobu – you will not be disappointed!
