Nagata-san,
 I hope you are fine when you receive this e-mail.
 I want to thank you for your excellent guide services provided  to me and my wife on March 9 and 10.I have made a couple of recommendations to my partners regarding your guide services.I believe they have already made the corresponding reservations with you. I wish they enjoy as much as we enjoyed your company as well as the valuable information provided.

Hi Nagata san,

I wanted to pass along the great feedback I received from the Schuleman couple you guided for me.  They *loved* their time with you, and here’s what they said:

Gil: “I have to say that Nagata-san in Kyoto was simply phenomenal – he is someone truly focused on ensuring his clients enjoy the sights, and he clearly takes pride in his role as guide. ”JoEllen: “As Gil said we were super impressed with Nagata San. He had the restaurant he loved stay open just for us.  We had a great lunch with him.  He made sure we saw double what we expected just at a very fast pace.  Which was fine by me.”

This trip was quite a challenge for me to set up due to all their requests and questions, but it was hugely successful due in no small part to your efforts!  You were the first part of their trip they mentioned to me!  Thank you so much.

Hello, Nagata.
Thank you so much for being such an excellent guide for us in Kyoto.  We enjoyed your company, and appreciated your knowledge and attention to details.  We especially enjoyed the stone gardens and the special view inside the temple. Sanjusangen-do was awe-inspiring, as was the Golden Pavilion.  The gallery was an extra treat.
Thank you for the beautiful photos and the map to help us on our walk through Gion.I am copying our wonderful guide in Tokyo, Ms. Y.M on this e-mail.  Since you are both excellent guides in different cities, perhaps you might want to refer each other to future clients.
It was a pleasure meeting you.  If we come back to Kyoto, we would like to have you as our guide again!

Dear Nagata-san,
 Now this is a month since you were my guide in Kyoto.
 Looking back, this was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan.                                                     

I learned much and I saw many new things.    Your explanations and information in general gave me insight, I think, in the fascinating world of Japanese Buddhism and Shintoism.

There is still much to remember and to think for me,Looking back to this day in Kyoto. Very moving was the story of the  young painter you told me, and also these moments in Ryoan-ji garden and in the Sanjusangen-do temple.
 So today I just want to say once again thank you to you, thank you for everything. I will always remember your guidance. I got impressions and ideas about Japanese culture and thinking which made me interested in learning more someday later.

Dear Nagata-san,
Thank you very much for providing me and my parents such an incredible expert tour of Kyoto including Roanji and Kinkakuji, as well as Nijo-jo Castle. We so enjoyed our time with you and you are so smart! Your English is also perfect。
Unfortunately, our time in Kyoto was too short. We look forward to planning another visit soon and hope to see you again for some more expert guides to Arashiyama.
If I can be of any assistance to you in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to sharing your amazing tour with my clients and my colleagues as well. I will also practice my meditation according to your advice.
Thank you again and take care, Nagata-san!
Warm regards,

Nagata-san,
I wish to drop you this quick email to thank you for a totally enjoyable tour of Kyoto. While I have been there before, your tour was most excellent and memorable. Your English ability is very good, and I cannot think of any moment during our tour where I was confused or failed to understand your point. My French manager was very impressed with not only the beauty and culture of Kyoto, but also your performance as a certified guide.
While my time in Japan is now very short, I have passed on your business card to my manager with a very warm recommendation for your service in the future. My company is totally international, and there will be future visits by others with no previous touch of the Nippon Culture. My wish is that he will reach out to you to be the “Kyoto Ambassador” in the future.
Please feel free to use this email as reference for others who may consider your excellent service.

Dear Mr. Nagata,
Thank you for serving as our guide and mentor during our recent visit to Kyoto!  We had a wonderful time and your skills exceeded our expectations on every dimension.  You have an impressive knowledge of Japanese history and culture, your language skills are excellent, you have a beautiful and comfortable car, and (most importantly) your humor and hospitality made our family feel very welcome!  My children commented on how much they enjoyed your explanations, which greatly enhanced their understanding of the various cultural sights we visited.  Lunch was also a real treat for everyone.
Thanks again for a very special day of sightseeing.

Letter  for Nobusan

Hello Nobu-san,

My family and I all agreed that you were an outstanding tour guide for our stay in Kyoto!  We were also impressed that you are only one of 5 people in Kyoto who has a license in being both tour guide and taxi driver. We hope you will continue to give people such a wonderful experience in learning about your city.       I will refer your name and email address to any possible friends and family who plan to travel to Kyoto and might be interested in getting a taxi tour like us.

And remember that if you and your family ever have a chance to visit Honolulu, please let us  know.  We would enjoy meeting you again.

Letter for Nobusan

Dear Nobu,

Thanks for the wonderful tour of Kyoto.

We enjoyed everything we visited with you and will cherish our memories of your lovely city. Our only regret is that we did not have more time to spend in Japan- so we will need to come back one day.

Thank you for your recommendation of Itoh(steakhouse) and helping with the reservation. When we arrived they were turning away a lot of people because it was fully booked but we had a wonderful river side table and view thanks to your help and

 

connections. The dinner was very special, too.

Best Wishes,

Thank you for making our visit to Kyoto so enjoyable.  We cannot predict the weather.  I think we tried our best even though we did get soaked.  You will always remember us because of the weather.  I will be in touch with anyone I may know that may be inteested in traveling to Kyoto.  In fact, I let Bobbie(travel agent) know.  I will also give your name to our friend, who is a travel agent.

All the Best.

Letter for Nobusan

As my partner and I only had a short time in Kyoto we decided to hire a guide. We gave a summary in advance of the places we wanted to see and allowed Nobu San to make the best agenda. We had asked for Sake tasting, which he was not familiar with, but he researched this and returned with a wonderful recommendation that we would highly recommend for anyone to add to their visit. The brewery was 15 generation family run and they spoke perfect English. The grandfather was so pleased to have visited and was highly engaging. Our travel plans changed slightly in advance as Nobu San was very accommodating and picked us up from the station in the early morning and brought us back to our apartment at the end of the trip. We are so pleased that we decided to have a guide and very happy with our guide.

Thank you very much for your great review.

Normally sake brewing starts from Autumn, fortunately we could see inside the brewery

and you could taste good local Sake.

Please give my best regards to him.

Dear Mr. Nagata,
Thank you very much for your services! We had a great time and saw and learned more than we would have if we'd been on our own.
To let you know, we saw several maikos on the route you showed us and one geisha, who got into a Rolls Royce!
Once Scott puts together a video of the footage he recorded with his drone on Mt. Hiei, I will send you a link so you can view it.
どうもありがとうございました!

Dear Nobu-San,

 

I am sorry it has taken so long to write. We have been so busy with the holiday season, and to be honest, I am still recovering over the most magical and wonderful time I had in Kyoto. 

 

My partner and secretly arranged for you to take us around and I had no idea why he had made such elaborate preparations, but it was because the day after you had taken us around he had asked for my hand in marriage!

 

Thank you for making our trip a very special one. I would be delighted to recommend you to all my friends. They don't make people like you anymore. Your kindness, sense of humour and professionalism all throughout were much appreciated.

 

Happy Holidays to you and your family, and hoping to visit Kyoto again in the not to distant future. We will definitely give you a call!

 

All the best,

Thank you very much for your kind review.

How have you been?

I am  very happy to hear that proposed marriage to you.

He is surely happy to marry you, you are beautiful, cute and smart.

 

I appreciate you recommending all of your friends to me.

It is so honorable for me.

I will do my best to live up to your expectations.

 

I look forward to receiving your call in the near future.

Please give my best regards to him.

Hello Nagata-san
Thank you very much for the service you provided to us today and yesterday and for getting the wheel chair for my mum and pushing her.  Without you, we would not have been able to see so many places. It has enabled my mum to see so many places without stress on us.  We also enjoyed our lunch today, it was very worth it !
I have passed on your details to my friend, Set Pew, who will be visiting Kyoto one day next week.  I believe she has communicated with you.  thanks again.

Dear Mr Nagata,
I just read your email as I had no access when we were on holiday.  Yes, we enjoyed your tour very much, it was wonderful having you show us Kyoto and giving us so many insider tips!
I shall write a review soon, but we have just returned so I shall be busy for a little while.  Shiraume indeed perfected our stay and I shall not hesitate to recommend you nor Ms Tomoko to friends.
We had a wonderful stay in Japan – Teshima Art Museum is something which I have never experienced anywhere else in the world and the architect Ryue Nishizawa and artist Rei Naito are truly talented to have come up with such a breathtaking creation.  My son loved it and especially enjoyed biking uphill and downhill on Teshima and Naoshima – he SMILED all day and I got my lovable son back once again! J
I hope to bring my sisters to Kyoto one day as they have not seen Kyoto in Autumn, and shall be in touch with you.
Thanks again SO much!


Warm regards

Please give my best regards to your husband, son and your sister.

Dear Nagata San
We are on the train to the airport and are sad to leave Kyoto. Thank you so very much for the excellent tour of Kyoto. We learnt a lot of the history ofJapan and loved the tips, like where to spot geisha and where to eat. We enjoyed the route you recommended for Kiyomizu Dera temple yesterday and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! We will certainly contact you next time for a tour of your secret places :-)

We had a wonderful day with you as our tour guide and enjoyed all of the places that you took us – including Ryoanji.  Kyoto has so many places that we could have visited it was wonderful to have  a variety of styles in the one day. We even saw a few Geisha that night on the streets in Gion district that you recommended.

The following day before heading back to Osaka we had time to visit  Nijo Castle and the Manga Museum where we had our portraits drawn. 

Thanks to you we also know that there are many more wonderful places for us to explore and visit should we be fortunate enough to visit your beautiful Kyoto again!

Until we meet again, the kindest of regards to you and your family,

Dear Nagata,

This is my review of our tour.

We had 4 days sightseeing in Kyoto and were lucky enough to have a whole day (6 hours) with Mr. Nagata who was an excellent guide. He picked us up from our apartment door and his car was comfortable, warm and spotless! We asked that he take us to the sites out of the city center and he suggested a fantastic full itinerary. He was so knowledgeable about the history and customs (ancient and modern) and had a good sense of humor, which all in all made for a fun day. We would never have seen so much without his help.

The sights of Kyoto are fairly spaced out so engaging a guide/driver is a great way to get the most from your trip and way better than any bus trip. We had email contact with him prior to the trip and he was prompt in his responses so we were always clear that everything was booked as planned. 

We would have liked to have had Mr. Nagata for another day but he is booked up well in advance - so book now! 

Thank you Mr. Nagata

Nobu was very helpful in helping customize a six hour tour for all the sites I wanted to visit. Upon arrival in the Kyoto station, Nobu was there to greet me as I stepped off the shinkansen. Nobu speaks English very well and was very informative at all the sites. At my request, Nobu was able to fit in a visit to a handicraft store so that I could buy some kimonos. At the end of our tour, Nobu escorted me back to the Kyoto station and helped me purchase my return ticket.

Thanks again for a wonderful tour Nobu!

It was our pleasure to have you guide our tour in Kyoto.  Our entire family enjoyed it very much, including our three teenagers.  Even though the weather was hot and humid, you made us feel comfortable and welcoming.  Thank you so much!  We would definitely use your service again when we return to visit Kyoto.

Dear Nobu-San

Thank you for showing us around today in your ultra-comfortable and cooling car. It allowed us to survive the 35 degrees heat today. 

Your explanation of all the sites was very informative and made it much more interesting for all of us. I think our favorite temple was the last one with the 1200 Buddhas. 

Thank you again.

I had a great pleasure of spending one day in Nara, Arashiyama and Kyoto with Mr. Nobuaki Nagata . Nobu is a great English speaking guide, has a great sense of humor and is a fantastic host overall. I had a great time and Nobu made this possible (thank you again Nobu). I would love to come back and spend more time with him exploring Kyoto in the future and I highly recommend him.

Mr. Nagata gave us a very organized and well run 6 hour tour

he was polite professional showed us sites that were not covered by other arrangements

considering his personal attention and the cost of taxis which we used later in our stay in kyoto his services were an excellant value

Little bit late my review... but all I can tell you is that our Kyoto tour with Mr. Nobu was awesome. He spoke very fluent English, the car was great, he knew a lot of history and took us to amazing places! He even took his time to take me to buy a special gift. The restaurant he recommended really had the most wonderful rice I've ever eaten!! Mr. Nobu gave us one of the most wonderful experiences in our lives!! He is a 5 star +. We were a party of 5 from the island of Puerto Rico and we highly recommend this tour. It Really exceeded our expectations! Thank you very much!!!

Our tour was with Nobuaki Nagata. The van was spotless and he was on time. My son (11yrs old) and I were treated to interesting religious aspects of each site we wanted to see and also taken to the best photo sites. When my son wanted a matcha soft cream, we were taken to perhaps the best place in Kyoto for matcha(Powdered green tea.) ! All in all, it was a great day if you want to gain insight into Kyoto's sites beyond the guide books.

Dear Nabu,

    Thank you for your email and thank you for spending the day with us yesterday showing us so much of what you love about Kyoto. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you. 

    We took your advice and this morning we walked to the Sanjusanden-do. We were so impressed by the sculptures from 600-700 years ago. They were far ahead of the Europeans of that time although the ancient Greeks were experts in 500 BC already. This shrine was very moving. 

    This afternoon we visited Daitokuji Temple and then met with s maiko for tea and a dance demonstration in a tea house in Gion. 

    Tomorrow we take a day trip to Nara. 

    You have a beautiful city. Thank you again.
