My 11 year old son and I began our trip in Tokyo with Yuki-san. We started the day taking the shinkansen out of Shinagawa Station and taking the local train once in Kyoto to the Fushimi Shrine. We did the Miyabi Tour. We followed the course and had lunch at a delicious tonkatsu restaurant that Yuki-san found for us because of my picky 11 year old eater. The most memorable site for us was the Kinkaku Temple late afternoon. The sunset hit the temple just right and it shone in its beautiful gold color. We were back in Tokyo by 8 p.m. Originally, I thought the 12 hour trip would be too much for my son. Not at all. Time flew by and we were not tired, one bit. My son said, "I want to take another tour with Yuki-san when we come back to Japan". I agree, I highly recommend him. Very knowledgeable, timely, efficient and makes traveling very easy. We will tour once again with Yuki-san when we return to Japan. Thank you so much, Yuki-san!
Dear Miho, Thank you very much for writing such a specific review of my tour. It was my pleasure to guide you and your son to Kyoto when it is not so crowded. The day was very fine and mild in the last week of December but it snowed on the next day. Sorry for the walk to find the Tonkatsu restaurant, its entrance was very different from what I expected. I will look for your visit of Japan again. Yuki
