My husband I were so lucky and blessed to have been referred to Makoon by a couple of friends of ours to work with us for a couple of days in Kyoto (although he works in other areas of Japan as well). Makoon was an absolute delight to work with – so enthusiastic, so knowledgeable, so much fun, and he tolerated all of my questions with excellent grace and humor! I truly cannot recommend him more highly. We felt that we saw so much from the historical to the cultural to the whimsical, and he helped us greatly with restaurant choices and the best ways to get around town when we weren’t with him. We had a blast with him and won’t hesitate to contact him the next time we’re planning a trip to Japan and will be happy to share his info with our friends who are going as well.
