Shogo was very informative and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. We learned much about Himeji and Engyo-ji. He is soft spoken and very respectful of my husband, who could not walk fast. He kept the tempo a little slower to help my husband. During the bus ride back to the train station, he gave us some suggestions for our next destination, which turned out to be so helpful, as I had not planned on them and my family loved his suggestions.
Dear Arlene, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Being blessed with spring beautiful weather, I hope you enjoyed visiting Himeji Castle area plus walking in the woods in Shoshazan Engyoji Temple. Since your family, especially 花 san, has deep understanding of Japanese history, I believe you felt quiet and spiritual atmosphere up there, which aristocrats visited to come into contact with all the way from Kyoto far back in the 10th to 12th century. Thanks for everything, Arlene. Best regards, Shogo
