What a great way to start a holiday in Kyoto! Seiko showed us some beautiful sights and gave us so much information about their history and cultural significance. After planning our initial tour with her, she was very responsive to our late requests for changes which demonstrated her understanding of our needs. After visiting Tokyo for a week we were trying to get away from the crowds and Seiko suggested a visit to Uji, including a tea ceremony, followed by an early evening visit to the Fushimi Inari shrine which allowed us to experience these wonderful places calmly. She is very friendly, easy to talk to and has excellent English skills. Thanks so much from Phil and Linda.
Thank you Phili and Linda!! I'm glad you liked Uji for a change as it's also one of my favorite areas in Kyoto. I hope it helped you get to know Kyoto on your first day, and you could explore the city and surrounding area at your pace on the following days in Kyoto. I also enjoyed hearing about Australia and your travel experience, and love the picture with Linda by Uji bridge in the sunset! Thanks again for the memorable day:) Seiko
