We had a really excellent time with Shinya and Anna. Shinya was energetic and friendly, and created an excellent itinerary based on our interests (went to a beautiful garden and then to Nishiki Market). Both Shinya and Anna were very kind and keen to answer all of our questions about Japan and Japanese culture. It is always nice to navigate parts of Japan with locals and get a more in depth view of the every day life. Would definitely use Huber again and strongly recommend Shinya and Anna!


It was amazing to meet such friendly locals and make new friends! They do speak english very well and maybe someday they can learn spanish and come to Mexico ( where I am from) so I can be the guide.

Best regards amigos!!


Shinya-san and me have a long discussion until we realizing this tour. He have showed his patient and attention to what the client needed and interest.
With Ami-san, even we just met this nice and sweet girl on the day of the tour, she can mingle with with us as if we already be friends for quite a long time.
Eventhough the time quite tight when we do the tour together as that day is our last day in Kyoto and have to go to Tokyo in the afternoon, Shinya-san and Ami-san can make the trip become an enjoyable and unforgettable memories for us to see and feel the authenticity of Kyoto city which we love very much.
Thanks also for showing us a new experience of eating tonkatsu with grinding sesame as part of preparing the gravy. Really nice taste of tonkatsu restaurant, we love it!!
Hopefully we can come back to this beautiful city again.
Thank you Shinya-san and Ami-san


It was so great! We learnt so much more informations about the local city and the feeling was really confortable,friendly.


Thank you for that day at Fujimi Inari ! It was great to meet you and you gave us top information about the place. And most of all, you're nice people. A great experience.
