What a wonderful day exploring Kyoto with Seiko as our guide.She couldn’t do enough to ensure we had a great time,explaining the history and culture of the city whilst managing to keep our two young daughters engaged and interested. The highlights were definitely the river cruise along the hozu,the bamboo forest and the tour of the Gion district where we spotted a trainee Geisha. Seiko guides us expertly from area to the next and found a lovely restaurant with river views for lunch.We would certainly recommend her for any visitors requiring a guide with great English language and natural ability to communicate at all levels with all ages.
Thanks Rob for the kind review! Hodugawa kudari is one of my favorite things to do in Kyoto in every season. I always recommend this to my friends visiting Kyoto and was so happy when you said you wanted to do this! It was also nice to spot a maiko (and geiko later!) for the girls too as I remember they sounded very interested as I guided the area. Hope they can come back to Japan some time again and use the Japanese words they learnt here. Thanks again! Seiko
