«Points to Note»

The term "consultation" here is limited in general to spoken advice/information as necessary assistance to a tourist who is creating a plan for barrier free sightseeing in Kyoto.
Specific services, such as arranging accommodation, restaurants, taxi transport, tour plans and care service, are not part of the concierge system. However, if the tourist and the concierge in question make an agreement where such services are provided as charged services, then such services may be possible.
