We are so grateful to have met Koichi. He’s friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful. I didn’t think we’d see so much in one day, yet we did and the pace was just right. During our visit, we were lucky to see the free illumination and geisha show at the Yasake Shrine. It wasn’t included in the itinerary but Koichi kindly let us tag along with him as he took beautiful pictures. We also enjoyed eating at traditional japanese restaurants. He also taught us how to use subway and bus. Koichi is not only a perfect guide, he is also a great photographer. Thank you for everything, Koichi! We hope to see you again next time we’re in Kyoto.
