I had 9 hours in Kyoto and wanted to make the most of my time in the area. Kazuhiko layed out a custom itinerary that covered the major sites I wanted to see. During our email exchanges, Kazuhiko was always responsive and when I arrived, he had a great and efficient itinerary mapped out for the day. He started off by meeting me at the train car when I arrived inKyoto, coordinated all of our public transportation from site to site, shared his knowledge of the culture and local sites, and planned a nice lunch stop. We moved efficiently from site to site, but I did not feel rushed. We finished off the day with a refreshing desert and then he escorted me back to Kyoto Station. He also assisted with updating my seat reservation for the bullet train and saw me off at the train platform. Thank you Kazuhiko for sharing your knowledge of the local sites and the Japanese culture. It was a great experience.
