1 week ago Traveler: Dzung -   Tour Guide: Koichi

Koichi arrived on time and waited for us right at the entrance of the port terminal. He tried his best to show us all the visiting sites in Kyoto in the short time we were there. His car was too small for a group of 6 persons and we had some problems in communications as we don't speak Japanese and English is not our native language. Anyway, at the end we returned to the port on time.
