Masayo is more than I’ve could have asked for. She was super supportive with all my wishes and she adapted all places which I wanted to visit. She almost knows everyone in Kanazawa, which is great as the locals recognize her and obe time we could enter a Geisha house eventhough it was closing in 5min… She also took a lit of pictures of me with my phone so i could upload them on my instagram. She loved it to support. She has a great knowledge of all the places we’ve visited. I highly recommend a Kanazawa tour with her! Much love, Sandra

Shirai-san is a local guide that speaks English well and was very knowledgeable about her home city. We learned a lot about how the Kenrokuen gardens were created, and could easily imagine how things were like in the Samurai era. Highly recommended.
