Mari is very pleasant, helpful and very patient with us as we had to stop a lot of times for picture taking. We were able to see a lot of places in a short period of time. We learned a lot from Mari as she explained to us the history of the places we visited. She answered all our questions well. She took us to the places that we wanted to visit. We had an excellent time with Mari. She made our visit to Kyoto memorable. We will definitely recommend Mari to our friends and relatives who will visit Japan in the future.
