“Mission completed within 5 hours” I contacted Nobu (Mr. Nagata) for a day tour on Jun 2. I let him know my itinerary and he helped to further customize my itinerary so that we could visit those essential attractions within 5 hours. He is really friendly, flexible and gives lots of information about the sites (Nijo Castle, Bamboo forest etc.). My family really enjoy the tour and we will definitely return when we got more time to spend in Kyoto. Really appreciate the hospitality offered by...

“Excellent in every way” We are a family of 5 (kids aged 10-16) visiting from the US. We do not know any Japanese. We wanted to spend just a day or two in Kyoto and had originally looked into booking a tour through a travel agent. Contacting these guys directly was so much better. They are honest, easy to do deal with, and very flexible. A few emails prior to the visit is all you need to arrange a meeting time/place and to let them know if there are any specific places you want to see. As...

“Wonderful experience!” Mr. Nobuaki ( Nobu ) was a guide for us. We discussed through email the places in Kyoto we prefer to visit, given we just have one day for Kyoto, and there are so much places to see there. The exchange of email was quick, simple and direct. The day of the tour itself went on smoothly, Mr. Nobu was very courteous, informative and kind. The tour went on smoothly and it’s like we covered so much in such a limited time. We will definitely recommend him to our family...

“Kyoto - 1 Day Tour” We were 6 of us and Nobuaki Nagata-San (Nobu-san) picked us up from our hotel in Kyoto in his very clean and comfortable Toyota van. Nobu-san was very professional, knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. We spent nearly 6 hours very effectively in spite of the rain. Nobu-san was well prepared for the rain, had umbrellas for all of us. He was efficient in his driving and was always able to find parking spots near the sights we were visiting. We saw the Fushimi-Ku...

天龍寺。臨済宗天龍寺派の大本山。足利尊氏が後醍醐天皇の霊を慰めるため、1339年(暦応2)夢窓国師を開山として創建。室町時代の京都五山の第一位の禅寺。 今の季節、梅雨を前に竹林の青が冴えています。 最近、嵐山の竹の道では、孟宗竹への心無い落書きが問題となっています。自然を愛する日本人の心の理解からアプローチする必要があるかもしれません。...
