“Kyoto Tour” We had an amazing day with Mr Nobuaki visiting Nijo-jo Castle, Golden Pavillion, Ryoanji Temple, Kiyomizu Temple and a secret gem away from the tourists recommended by our guide. Nobuaki was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor keeping all of my family entertained throughout the day. He organised our itinerary with great detail ensuring we had plenty of time had each location. I thoroughly recommend this Tour. From Mr. and Ms. Thomas in AUS

Great day with Nobuaki Nagata” We had a really really good christmas day in Kyoto and had lots of fun with Nobuaki Nagata. Nobu was in the train station platform the minute we stepped out of the shinkansen from Osaka; and without a minute to spare, we started going around Kyoto, based on the list we agreed on. Nobu knows a lot of the history of Kyoto, and also shared wonderful and interesting tidbits to us, about each place we visited. No questions were left unanswered. Kids had fun, and...

He was flexible and had great suggestions about off-the-path temples and shrines to visit that were beautiful. We would...
