I booked a Fushimi Inari tour with Akiko. I’ve learned a lot about the local culture because of her. I’ve also booked other tours during my visit in Japan but her tour was by far the best one! She is friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated. You...More

It was very crowded at the bottom, but once the climb started, it thinned out. You could even take pictures along the way without people. Who loved it.

We had four food plates and three drinks: all were different and delicious, and all represented different types of Japanese food. Our guide, Deekay, was great. A gold mine of information about Japan and Kyoto, not just about food. Really fun evening.

This hike is to the famed Fushimi Inari Taisha (shrine). But rather than go right through the front, where all the other tourists go, you will take a back path through the forest and bamboo groves that is peaceful, serene and very beautiful. My tour...More

Thanks to Akiko today who was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and easy going and didn't push the pace so the group stayed together. She kept the hike interesting and informative throughout. The hike itself takes you away from the front of the shrine entrance...More

We had a hard time finding Ken. But the tour was really interesting with lots of background information. We learned a lot about how the Japanese live and where the things we see come from. The food was very good as well.

If I hadn’t done a tour the previous day, I would have thought it was just Japanese culture. Our guide was not forthcoming with any info. We had to ask what everything was. No history of the market, or insider knowledge into any of the...More

Quite a bit! We were impressed by his knowledge of the area and the history of the Gion tea houses. If you take this tour you will visit local restaurants that most tourists don’t get to go to. I highly recommend!
