I highly recommend using Richard as your tour guide for the Kyoto/Osaka area. He speaks fluent Japanese, and has a deep knowledge and appreciation of the Japanese people and customs. We fed snow monkeys, visited temples and shrines, ate at fish markets, learned about sake, and had a truly memorable bar crawl in Osaka. Richard seeks out unique experiences for his clients and was able to customize an itinerary for us. Communication was great. Richard has clearly done his homework on the sights, and was even able to reschedule things when it started raining. We had a wonderful time with Richard for three days. We never would have seen most of the places he took us to, and the days we were with him were the highlight of our trip to Japan!
Thank you so much Wes for the days you let me guide you. It was a lot of fun and I just want to say I am amazed at how much you guys can drink!!! LOL I hope to visit your neck of the woods one day and have one of your beers!! Say hi to the gang for me! Kind regards, Richard
