Love it! Toshi and Tatsu was very nice and friendly. Even though we only did a short trip they were very informative and fun. It was our first time and will probably be going back and try and see if we can ask for Toshi (I think that’s what his name is) and Tatsu. Thank you for a good tour.

Dear Road17324988431, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with our two guides in Kyoto Arashiyama in June this year. Even on rainy days Arashiyama is a wonderful place to visit, especially when travelling on a rickshaw where you will stay dry. Even our shortest tour option are long enough to introduce you to some of the charms of Arashiyama and share tidbits of interesting information of the area. You can request specific guides and will be assigned to you based on availability that time and day. To be sure, just give us a call in advance or send us a quick email the day before to confirm if they are working that day! If you came back already, we hope you were able to request Toshi and Tatsu again and had a fabulous time touring and seeing more of Arashiyama! Best Regards, Larissa C EBISUYA Rickshaw

Dear Conny, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with us in Kyoto Arashiyama the other day. Thank you also very much for taking the time to write a review about our guide Mocchi! He was very happy to hear from you and to know that you had a great time on his rickshaw. Throughout the year the landscape of Arashiyama changes, but no matter if you come during one of the hottest days of summer or the coldest day in winter, our guides will show you the the many charms Arashiyama has to offer throughout the year. Here is a comment Mocchi wrote in response to your review: "Thank you for taking my tour and your nice review!! It was great time with you! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed and like the pictures I took!! If you have chance, please come back again!!" Best Regards, Guide: Taichi MOCHIZUKI (Mocchi) Staff: Larissa C EBISUYA Rickshaw

Leaving this review late, but wanted to thank Akihisa for the amazing tour received previously. He not only offered to take photos for us but provided great conversation, making the rickshaw tour very enjoyable and laidback. Would highly recommend this driver! Driver: Akihisa

relaxing way to see around the Kyoto Arashiyama area. Amazing how a person can lug two people around up and down hills as well as keeping us informed of the history of the area. Great little tour.

Dear Andrew, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with us in Kyoto Arashiyama earlier this year. We are very happy to hear that you had a good time exploring parts of Arashiyama with our guide. The guides all go through a long training period before becoming rickshaw guides. During that time they not only study and learn about the area, but they also train and practice so by the time they are done and pass the exam, they are not only knowledgeable but also have sufficient strength, endurance and stamina to talk and run at the same time without getting out of breath. We hope you will remember the relaxing tour of Arashiyama for a long time to come. Best Regards, Larissa C EBISUYA Rickshaw
