“ Kyoto and Nara ”

Richard was everything we could have hoped for. We were a group of 8 who were on a cruise and spent two days at Kobe Port. Richard arranged for us to see places that were significant in Japanese history and also enjoyable for us. A highlight of our day in Kyoto was the Tea Ceremony in the Samurai House hosted by the proprietors, a newly married couple. They not only did a memorable tea ceremony but because of Richard shared their special wedding sake with us. Nara was also enjoyable especially the shrine of 10000 lanterns and the deer running wild. We were also provided with information about Jaoanese culture and Buddhism throughout the trip. Richard is very knowledgeable about Japanese culture and history and we highly recommend him.

Richard:

Judy, you and your group were a delight to have. You guys had a genuine interest and I was honored to have you as my guests. I am so happy you enjoyed our 300 year-old Samurai House and I am happy you enjoyed their sake. I didn't;t get any.... LOL Just kidding. Please come again and tell your friends you know a crazy American guy in Japan! Kind regards, Richard
