Yoshi is very enthusiastic and accommodating. If he doesn’t know something he makes a point of finding out.

Wonderful tour with some hidden gems of Nara. I would never guess how beautiful it is without our guide Yoshi - we really loved the shrine visit and a special place of the famous Japanese photographer. The deers were fun too!

Yoshi seems a little new to the English tour game, but was informed and helpful. He’s generous with his pacing and allowed for the slow pace of our photo taking and window shopping. He knows the path, Nara customs, and was extremely kind to us. He doesn’t do a ton of chit-chat like many of the other guru’s and tour guides we hired, but he made up for it by answering all of our questions and even took us shopping after.
