“ Kyoto tour with Toru ”

Toru was waiting for me at the appointed time in the lobby of my Osaka hotel. This was his suggestion as I was storing some luggage there for my return later in the week and he thought I may have trouble finding my Kyoto hotel, so he accompanied me there. We visited most of the prominent Buddha temples, Shinto shrines, Nijo-jo Castle, pagodas, gardens ( the Japanese maples were just turning and the colours were beautiful),bamboo forest, central area of city - Pontocho street, theatres, Gion area, and its geishas. Toru explained well the history of all the places we visited as well as explaining Japanese culture. With our late start, Toru went well over the normal tour time; he seemed happy to do this because of his enthusiasm in showing his home land. I had a a pleasant and very informative day with Toru and certainly would not hesitate in recommending him to any visitors to Kyoto
