What a delightful introduction to Kyoto! Hiroko met us at the train station with a smile and energy to spare. Our visits to the gardens of Kyoto were well chosen and a good representation of garden design over the centuries. We learned about Japanese history, culture, customs, life, and food. Hiroko was extremely knowledgeable and living in Kyoto she knew her gardens well. Spending a day with Hiroko in Kyoto was super. We enjoyed every moment. Seeing Ryoanji at dusk was a special and spiritual ending to a fantastic day in Kyoto. A job well done Hiroko!!! We would love to return to Kyoto with Hiroko as guide to see and learn more.
Dear Roine, I am truly honored to receive such good review from you. I am so glad and relieved to hear that you enjoyed the tour in Kyoto. All of you are very intelligent and gentle, and I really enjoyed being your guide. I really would like to see you again over here in the near future. Please give my kind regards to Charlie and Nancy. Sincerely, Hiroko
