We're a group of 9 people with 4 elderly so using the bus on our tour around Kyoto wasn't an option especially if your trip falls on a weekend. Good thing I stumbled upon Masa's n-quest private tour website. We exchanged mails and I was...More
We were picked up from the Kyoto Shinkansen station in a large, air-conditioned van that smelled like flowers and had wifi. We knew from that moment that we were going to have a great time during our tours with Masa.
Masa knows Kyoto like the...More
We booked a Day tour to Kyoto on our tour of Osaka online. And paid online months before the tour. On day of tour we were greeted by Mr Masayuki himself with a van for 9 even though we have 6 persons. The drive was...More
While staying in Tokyo, we wanted to spend a full day in Kyoto. Traveling with three children (ages 12, 8 and 5) in the summer heat makes it difficult to visit more than 1-2 sights, especially those that involve a lot of walking. Masa scheduled...More
There are some sights in Kyoto that are just not easily accessible by train or subway. Masa was able to take our family of 5 to the Golden Pavillion, the Ryoangi Temple and the Bamboo Forest as well as drive by multiple sights in Kyoto...More
my family (7 people) wanted to explore kyoto and Nara in one day. I was glad that i had booked Khono Taxi. Instead of all the fuss of walking and changing train, we were picked up at our hotel. Mr. Masa, our driver and tour...More
Our family of six wanted to go on a day trip to Kyoto and Nara but didn't want to travel with a bus-full of fellow tourists, so we decided to book Masa/N-Quest Tour as our private transportation and guide.
From our initial email exchanges, I...More
I was travelling with my family (5 persons) to Japan and needed assistance on transport services in Kyoto. Mr Masa was excellent. I wrote to him and although he was fully booked due to the Sakura season, he managed to arrange english speaking drivers for...More
We were 4 persons booking Kohno Taxi when we arrived in Kyoto in the end of October 2015 and that was the perfect way of seeing Kyoto in the short time we had. Mr MASAyuki KOHNO were waiting outside the trainstation as agreed and drove...More
My husband and I were traveling with three elderly family members in their 80s, one needing a wheelchair. Therefore, sightseeing by bus or on foot was not an option. Most taxis only accommodate 4 people, so our only option was finding a tour guide with...More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
