Awesome tour of Nishiki Market with Yuri

Found the meeting point with ease and Yuri was there waiting for us right on time. She has a lovely warm personality and a wealth of knowledge to share. Her English is excellent and she managed to keep 4 teenage boys engaged throughout the whole tour. She helped us try all the things in the market on our checklist and more...explaining things as we went along and helping us with our Japanese (or lack there of). We had such a great time and would highly recommend Yuri to anyone wanting to venture out in Kyoto. She even sent us a message after our tour had finished with a picture of us all together and some good ramen restaurant suggestions (we went to one for dinner and it was fantastic). Thanks Yuri for a wonderful tour together and making our stay in Kyoto so much more special!!

We met Yuri and she greeted us gracefully. Yuri was knowledgable, helpful and accommodating to our requests to stop at different stalls/shops. Nishiki market had a buzzing atmosphere. Very busy, with locals and tourists, but that was to be expected. We tasted different and unexpected foods and bought a few items to take home. We even spotted a famous Japanese actress! (Yuri if you see this please remind us of her name, we forgot!). My Dad and I very much enjoyed the company of Yuri and her expertly given tour. Okina :)

Tatsuya was a fabulous guide. We walked every inch of the Nishiki market. Tatsuya made sure we got to sample numerous local specialties and also tailored the tour to our tastes. We would never had known what to try without his expert guidance. This was my daughter's favorite tour of our 2-week trip!
