“Kyoto Tour with Nobu was our Japan Highlight”
Mr. Nobu Nagata with his email. Set up a six hour tour where Nobu met us at the Kyoto Train Station platform with our name on a sign outside our train door.
He showed us where to obtain the famous train station Ekiben Bento lunch boxes for our return trip back to Tokyo.
We had given him a list of sites we would like to see and he worked with us for finalizing what would be realistic for the busy day's traffic.
We visited first Tenryu-ji Temple complex which lead to the Arishiyama Bamboo Forest. He provided a folding wheel chair for our 83 year old mother in law. We next saw the Kinkaku-ji Golden Pavilion complex, Chiskaku-in Temple complex - Kodo Hall painted gold panels and garden, and lastly, Tofuku-ji Temple complex and South Zen Garden.
His mini-van fit our group of 5 really well, and he helped with information as we drove throughout Kyoto.
He is very good at providing places to see or making your list of places to visit a reality.
Mr. Nobu Nagata made Kyoto one of our favorite places to visit while in Japan.
We paid less than half for a much better experience, had we arranged the online tour groups with busses who take you where they have chosen.
We had nominal fees of 400 - 500 yen per person to enter each Temple complex location.
We also paid for Nobu's parking fee only a couple times.
He dropped us off back at the Kyoto Train Station with time to spare for our Green Car trip back to Tokyo.
Very little stress all day. Thank you Nobu.
