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

Dear 108mychalh, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with us in Kyoto Arashiyama back in February. Thank you also for taking the time to write a review about the rickshaw tour you had with our guide Ryo. We are very pleased to hear that you had a good experience and went home with good pictures in your camera/phone. Since our guides know Arashiyama like the back of their hand, they will make sure to show you some spots and sceneries which many visitors don't know about or simply don't see or realize when exploring the area on their own. We hope you made many memories and will come back and visit us again some day. Best Regards, Larissa C EBISUYA Rickshaw

Dear Arua1795, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with us in Kyoto Arashiyama and taking the time after to write a review about your experience. We really like the pictures you shared as well! It is wonderful to hear that you were able to take a tour with our guide Buchi, just like you had hoped for. Taking the rickshaw tour while wearing a kimono definitely adds to the experience and looks great on the pictures, which your guide will happily take for you. Here is a comment your guide Buchi wrote for you: "Thank you for riding and giving favorable review! I’m glad to know that you had a good time with rickshaw in Arashiyama. When I heard that you were looking for me, I’m very surprised and felt happy. Your choice was best to wear kimono which goes well with rickshaw. I hope you to come back to Arashiyama again. And then please take us. We can get share the beautiful scenery in season and special guide with you. I’m looking forward to see you again." Best Regards, Guide: Ryuzaburo OBUCHI (Buchi) Staff: Larissa EBISUYA Rickshaw

My mother was visiting from Denmark in her wheelchair and we went to Arashiyama Bamboo Forest because it’s wheelchair accessible. It was unplanned that we stopped to talk to Shinnosuke on the look for directions. We quickly decided to give it a go with the rickshaw, since I

Dear Suzanne and Cristina, Thank you very much for your long, detailed and kind review. We loved reading your review and really appreciate the feedback! We are happy that both you and your mother had a fantastic time time exploring the Arashiyama area. Riding a rickshaw definitely gives you a completely different perspective on the bamboo forest, especially when your guide takes you through the private, rickshaw-only lane, away from the crowds. Though Arashiyama is quite a large area, only few people venture away from the popular spots to discover more of the characteristic Arashiyama and Sagano area, so we are glad that you did! The rickshaw covers a lot of distance in a shorter amount of time than it would take visiting it on your own AND you have an enthusiastic guide to explain and point out various points of interest along the way. We hope you had a great time in Kyoto! Here is a comment your guide Shinnosuke Tsuji wrote in response to your lovely review: "Thank you for riding. Actually I also surprised about wheel air. I told him your Thanks and comments. I hope we meet again someday. we wait you here. Thank you." Best Regards, Guide: Shinnosuke TSUJI Staff: Larissa EBISUYA Rickshaw

It was frigid and raining in Kyoto, and a Rickshaw ride was the last thing we expected to participate in. To our surprise, the Rickshaw was made waterproof and we never got wet. Our driver Yuichi Yeskizawa was fantastic. He spoke good English, and has a wonderful sene of humor.

Dear Wayne, Thank you very much for taking a rickshaw tour with us and our guided Yoshizawa in Kyoto Arashiyama earlier this month. Thank you so much for your review and feedback. The rickshaw is suitable for all weathers. In the summer the big roof protects you from the sun, in the winter the windows, roof, thick blankets and seat warmers protect you from the cold and on rainy days the roof and waterproof covers keep you dry and comfortable throughout the tour. This way you can enjoy Arashiyama and the bamboo forest in all seasons, though a rainy day will make the bamboo forest more vividly than ever! Here is a comment your guide Yoshizawa write in reply to your review: "Thank you Mr. Bruce Wayne for the ride in a heavy rainy day. I’m really glad to know that you had fun with the tour through the bamboo forest! Time flied so fast for me too! Transition of the weather was miraculous! You were very lucky to see it! Keep having heaps of funs and travel back home safe. Looking forward to see you again Sincerely Yuichi Yoshizawa" Best Regards, Guide: Yuichi YOSHIZAWA Staff: Larissa EBISUYA Rickshaw
