Nobu guided me in Kyoto and Nara over the course of three days.
I highly recommend him, and would be glad to make use of his services should I return to Japan.
He is a consummate gentleman, well-informed about the places we went, and highly responsible.
He responded very quickly to emails, speaks English well, and takes a lot of pride is showing visitors the treasures of the area.
As he got to know me, and the kinds of things I am most interested in, he took great interest in finding off-the-beaten track spots he thought I'd like to see.
He navigated everything from traffic to loud tourists in sacred spots with humor and aplomb.
I recommend him without hesitation and hope to see him again soon!
