I'm very proud of this job! I always give a tour in Kyoto as if I was the ambassador of Kyoto. Working with MK limousine for almost 18 years, I learned and experienced more than people can think of, including meeting with the celebrities from all around the world and working with international governments, embassies, etc.. In February of 2017, I started my own business as, MK private TAXI
