Dear Naoki-San

We wanted to thank you for your kind assistance in touring beautiful Kyoto! We had a great time, appreciated your knowledge and hope to return. If you and your wife ever travel to Southern California, please let us know so we can host you and show you around Newport Beach! Once again, thank you.

Hello Naoki-san,

I just want to thank you for the outstanding service you provided to Gayle and I and our friends. We all had a wonderful day with you. I feel lucky that you were available to show us Kyoto. I only wished we would have had more time to spend with you. Perhaps Gayle and I will be able to visit Kyoto some day in the future. You are an exceptional person, very kind and thoughtful. I hope one day we will meet again. If you like, please feel free to use me as a reference. Thank you again Naoki-san. I wish you good health and all the best in the future.

Your friends,
B and G

Dear Doi San,

Thank you so much for your wonderful service today.

My family and I had the privilege and pleasure of a guided taxi tour by Doi San of Doi Taxi Limousine service. Not only is Doi San highly knowledgeable, he is also very professional, kind and thoughtful. He has great recommendation of both places to visit and eat. He speaks English well and we will able to communicate effortlessly. Being ferried around in his luxurious car makes the entire experience highly enjoyable. We highly recommended Doi San and would certainly engage his service the next time we are in Kyoto.

All the best and wish you success and great health.

Mr. Doi

Thank you for a wonderful tour. We enjoyed your company and appreciated your knowledge. You were very accommodating in working the tour around our lunch reservation. We enjoyed your friend's coffee shop as well. All weather reports said rain, and you managed to get us a beautiful day. It is also rare to find a knowledgable tour guide who also has a car and is an excellent driver. You even spent time to take us shopping for a gift.
We recommend Mr. Doi to anyone going to Kyoto and surrounding area. It will make the difference between a good trip and a great trip.
Thanks again.

Dear Mr. Doi,

Cheryl and I have just returned home again last night. I wanted to express to you our thanks and appreciation for your wonderful service and excellent hospitality!!! We had such a lovely and memorable trip made possible by your good nature and wonderful service! Your knowledge of the sites and history surrounding them is exactly what we wanted to experience and there is no way that we could have seen so much in such a short period of time without you. Your English language is very advanced and this also provided a higher level of appreciation and understanding for all you showed us. Your service is an excellent value for all you do! We will enthusiastically recommend you to anyone that is considering a visit to Kyoto, and would be happy to be a reference for you in the future should you need one. We look forward to seeing you again on our next trip to Kyoto!

Thank you so very much again!!!

Warm Regards

We used taxi driver/tour guide Naoki Doi during our recent trip to Kyoto. I want to echo how great he was. His English and his knowledge of the places he took us was excellent. He kept my 2 teenage girls engaged for the 6 hours we booked with him, no easy feat. I highly recommend him to anyone considering a guide in Kyoto. We found having a guide very helpful as our time was limited and public transportation, while available, is not as easily accessible or user-friendly in Kyoto as it is in Tokyo.

Best regards,

Dear Naoki-san,

I wanted to say thank you for the tour you provided to my family and I during our recent visit to Kyoto. We very much enjoyed our time with you and have talked often about how much we learned. Your guide services were very interesting and educational, and we all enjoyed them. It is not easy to keep two teenage girls interested in much of anything, but your tour kept them interested the entire six hours. We highly recommend your services to others. Thank you again.

Dear Mr. Doi-san,

We are now on our flight back to Chicago, and we wanted to send you a belated but heart-felt domo arigato for your services. We thoroughly enjoyed our day of touring four of the most beautiful temples of Kyoto with you. Thank you for driving us around and providing a fun and memorable experience. Thank you also for making the advance reservations for us at Saihoji Temple. The moss garden was our favorite garden that we saw in all of Japan, and we are grateful that we had the chance to see it. We also loved the udon noodle shop for a quick but satisfying lunch. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family should they ever need a wonderful driver and guide of Kyoto!

先日は、京都の観光でお世話になりました。 一緒に回ったアメリカのみなさんも本日帰国しました。 昨夜まで一緒に仕事でしたが、本当に皆さん京都の観光は本当に素晴らしかったし、 土居さんのご案内や将軍やいろいろな歴史の説明が大変印象深く、 大変感謝しておりました。私も本当に今までで一番充実した京都観光でした。 素晴らしいお仕事ですね。 私もいろいろとアドバイスをいただきまして、ありがとうございました。 通訳ガイドの勉強も 早速勉強を少しずつしてみたいと思っております。 以前から興味はあったのですが、今回土居さんとお会いして、 お話を伺って、私ももう少し新しいことも勉強してみようと思いました。 息子と一緒に歴史や地理を勉強してみようと思います。 今年のテストは間に合わないかなと思うので、来年に向けて、 頑張ってみようかなと思います。 また是非土居さんにご案内頂く機会を楽しみにしております。 11月の件はまたご連絡させていただきます。

We have been meaning to thank you again for not just your excellent driving, but also for your wonderful guidance and interpretation! Our two days with you were a highlight of our trip to Japan. Arigato gozaimashita!! We have passed your name to a friend who will be in Kyoto is a few weeks.

We have been sorry that we did not buy a very lovely fan that was on display in that "bamboo shop" in western Kyoto you kindly took us to after the gardens. Would you have some way to get us the name and address or e-mail of that shop?

Looking forward to seeing you on our next visit to Japan,

I just wanted to thank you again for your wonderful taxi tour around Kyoto on the 26 May. My family and I learned so much more about Japanese history and also modern Japanese culture than we would have alone.

Dear Mr. Doi,

Thank you for a wonderful tour, Mr. Doi. We all got back to the room and talked about how much fun we had. You are a great teacher and we learned a lot about Nihon through you. We understand a little bit more about the area between "Yes and No" as well as about Buddhist and Shinto religions. Your knowledge is respectable and impressive. And we especially enjoyed lunch at the cafe, tell your friends "Mahalo" for us.

I checked TripAdvisor.com and they have a few references to your business, but there is not an article yet. I will write an article about your company when I get home. Once you have an article, people will be able to write reviews about your service and hopefully it will generate more business for you. We will also tell the concierge staff at Brighton Hotel that we really like your service.

Dear Mr Doi

Having just arrived back in Australia after holidaying in Japan, I just wanted to write and say what a wonderful day we spent with you touring Kyoto. You made our day so enjoyable, memorable and comfortable. Your knowledge was outstanding and we got to see so much more of this beautiful city with you than if we had been on our own. The little extras like stopping for us to see a fashion parade and the drive out to the Bamboo Forest via the Emperor's Memorial were real highlights.

Thank you again. We will certainly be recommending your services to all of our friends and family.

N様より (2009/07/23)
昨日はありがとうございました! 家族ぐるみでお付き合いしているお家の子どもたちが始めて日本に来るというので、京都と大阪と広島に連れて行くのですが、京都は大ベテランの土居さんがいるから 安心でした。 案の定、二人とも大満足で、随分ものしりになったようです。 お父さんがインド人で、親戚もインドに多くいるので、仏教的なものも、神道的(アニミズム的)なものも 両方いくらか馴染みがあるため、なるほどと思う部分も多いようです。

絵里子は英語は出来ても、日本のことを何も知らない、いわゆる今時の娘なので、これまた、学ぶことが多く、面白かったようです。

そして私は、土居さんのガイド術を丸一日かけて勉強させていただいて、これが念願だったものですから、本当にありがたかったです。 別のところで目にしたものを関連付けるという高度なテクニックは よほどの知識と前準備と余裕がないとできませんねえ。 忘れないように帰宅してからノートに書き込みました。 研修だけは受けましたが、結局ガイドとしてのお仕事は数えるほどしか経験がなく、いよいよ今のお仕事がなくなったときのお楽しみにしているのですが、パンフレットが 溜まるだけで、頭の中にはなかなか蓄積されていきません。

そうそう、「みかく」さんのすき焼き、美味しかったです。目の前で包丁で切ってくれて、血統書付きの証明書まで頂き、随分盛り上がり、わいわいいいながらいただきました。

何から何までありがとうございました。今後とも宜しくお願い致します。

Everyone connected to WMF praised your services, smile and excellent guiding. Thank you for taking this group around. They are very special.

Mrs. G will be honored at Lincoln Center in New York for her scientific literature and philanthrophy next month. These were all millionaires, Harvard professors and famous people so I was relieved that you could manage their trip.

While eating at Omoya, 2 women fell in love with the Shigaraki-yaki being used, and wanted to buy full sets of dinner dishes. I mention this because I know that most Japanese want to see "cha-dogu" when they visit a pottery town, but this is not true for foreigners. If you find a place (besides the Shigaraki Matsuri time in July) that sells dinnerware, this would be a good place to visit after seeing the Miho Museum. I didn't know where to recommend they go on Tues. night except to the Omoya on Fuyachi-dori. Their schedule was too tight for a trip to my favorite craft shop. Maybe some of them will come again.

Just a quick email to thank you very much for taking such good care of us on our day in Kyoto. Considering the extremely busy time of year with crowds and traffic, you were very knowledgeable of the best routes around Kyoto to get us to places in the shortest time, avoiding the major traffic areas where possible.

Your knowledge of the sites we visited and interesting inclusions of elements of Japanese life also contributed to making our day a very informative, relaxed, comfortable and stress free one which was astounding considering we were there on the biggest and busiest day of the cherry blossom calendar in Kyoto.

Once again, many many thanks from us all.

It is with sincere pleasure Ms. S and myself pass on our best wishes to you and your family. Back in Australia we reflect on the great time we had in Kyoto and assisted by you and your professionalism in providing a relaxed, warm friendly guide and taxi service.

Prior to initially leaving Australia it was a pleasure communicating with you via email, as always you replied promptly to questions asked. While in Kyoto the one day we engaged your services it decided to rain, however this was no problem, your taxi was extremely comfortably for us six adults and to all venues you transported us to the front door. Kyoto displayed narrow streets and hectic peak hour traffic yet can I say your driving placed us all at constant ease.

Whilst guiding us through the various places of interest you provided informative cultural facts and engaged local people with us, making our experience natural and personalised.

I will recommend your business to family, friends and business collegues and I look forward to the day I will need to call upon your services in the future.

本日は色々と教えていただいてありがとうございました。大変勉強になりました。 土居さんのガイドが今日は偶然、あいていて幸運でした。 お体には気を付けて、また明日のタイのお客さまも頑張ってください。 またお電話してお願いすることがありましたら、どうぞよろしくお願いいたします。

昨日はどうもありがとうございました。 お陰様でMr. JもMr. Tも京都を満喫されたようです。 ガイド内容だけではなく、土居様のお人柄も最高でしたと仰っていました。 私も、ゲストハウスで働いている以上、もっと勉強しなければと大変よい刺激を受けました。 しばらく寒い日が続くようですが、お体にはお気をつけ下さい。
