We spent two days in Kyoto, visiting Himeji Castle and a number of shrines and temples in Kyoto. Mr. Richard is an excellent guide. His animated discussions about Buddhism, Shintoism, the political powers of Japan ensured there was never a dull moment in places which were otherwise steeped in history. My son too had a lovely time with him. His objective view of Japan and its culture were interesting.
Thank you Samhita for your kind words. I am happy you guys had a good time and I hope we did not wear mom out. I hope she had a good time as well. Please come again and tell your smart son to keep up the good work. He is amazing!
