Our first time in Kyoto and very glad we saw it through Hero's experienced and knowledgeable local eyes and sensibilities. We went through Nishiki market, crossing Kamo river on Shijo bridge to Gion, visited several temples, he took on the role as our photographer making sure to captured images of us at places we visited. Helped us make a booking at a tempura restaurant we wanted to get into during the very busy sakura season in Kyoto. Friendly, approachable, flexible - we have already decided to come back to Kyoto to see more of it, hopefully with Hero again soon.
Thank you for your sweet reference. Seng and Edward were polite guests. They respect Japanese foods culture, life style, custom and local people. So I was also happy to introduce it to them through Kyoto city. In addition, they have multicultural background. I wish I could travel like you. I hope we can meet up again near future. See you until then! ;)
