What people are saying about Kyoto

if you are the sort of person who likes individual characters, then i think you will not be disappointed with this tour. Samurai Joe will introduce you to his friends as you stroll down the streets of kyoto, immersing you in a little japanese culture and tradition. With wit as sharp as his sword, Samurai Joe will convey you on a journey from times when the japanese slept in unheated homes on thin mats, to present times, now the japanese sleep in heated homes, still on thin mats. Then if you put that sword into someone's hand, the facial grin becomes indescribable! Thank you for the memories samurai joe

As a man, this was such a fun experience. When I checked in, I think the (male) receptionist was a bit shocked to see it was only me, but he handled it with care and I didn't feel embarrassed at all. The photoshoot itself only lasted about 10 minutes, but they do offer to take some personal pictures with your cell phone. (So you don't only get the professionally shot photos advertised!) They also have an option to go to a private shoot in a home, but the cost was like $400 or something. Something to consider if you really want to have an extra special experience.

Kyoto: 2-Hour Maiko Makeover and Photo Shoot Reviewed by Nathan, 26/03/2020

A quirky and enjoyable tour with ‘Samarai Joe’. He is a 91 year old who would put us to shame with his vitality and enthusiasm. No other guide would give a Samarai sword wielding exhibition as part of their tour, with audience participation! Some great tasty treats throughout the tour and some unique shops visited for food and viewing of exclusive Japanese items. It is clear that Joe is held in high esteem within the Kyoto tour industry through his interactions with staff at the venues. Overall, a very good tour.

Had an amazing Tim with just a small group of people. The English translator Elle, was so lovely and so were the other workers. Our instructor was really encouraging and helpful and we learnt so much about the samurai and how they came to be and lived in japan.

No one else arrived, so we ended up with a private tour. The guide was very kind, and very knowledgeable. It was a great, authentic-feeling experience! Great value for money. I would recommend for those seeking a cultural experience.
