This is a private car tour. I'm a Kyoto local and getting famous for the most friendly tour guide in Kyoto. Let me take you anywhere at your requests and also offer Kimono tour and Nara tour. I'm also working as a drone pilot in Japan and love to send you beautiful landscape of Japan after a tour! Please feel free to ask me any questions! Thank you very much

My partner and I went on a day trip with Kosuke around many sites in Kyoto. It was during the heat wave in Japan so his clean, modern air conditioned car was a fantastic break from the unrelenting heat! Kosuke was an excellent guide. He...More

Kosuke was an amazing tour guide. Positive Notes/High Points: -He was able to squeeze a ton into our one-day tour (Nara, Nishiki market, and four temples/shrines that were scattered on opposite ends of the city), without making it feel like a rush at all. -He...More

When you book a private tour you hope for a friendly, knowledgeable driver, a clean comfortable vehicle and an experience you will remember forever. Kosuke delivers and exceeds on all levels!! It felt more like a friend showing us the sights than a tour operator....More
