We had a lovely day with Hideo, despite the excessive heat and we walked 8 miles! We caught the festival parade, saw all the sites we had on our list and he offered us an extra one the 1,000 gates which we loved at the end. He had the day well planned out, and had a great place picked out for lunch. Thank you to Hideo for a memorable trip to Kyoto!
