We covered a lot of grounds with Hiroshi, and the "surprise" temple he took us to was the most interesting of all the temples we saw in Japan - Sanjusangen-do. We have three teenagers and Hiroshi was great with giving them snippets of information (by way of quizzes and anecdotes) that hopefully they will remember long term. As we did everything on a whirlwind pace, there was not much time to go into the history of Japan in any depth, unfortunately. Thank you Hiroshi for a great day.
Dear Vivi Thank you for your great compliment on Ap 19 one day tour in Kyoto. All of you visited five famous sites in a day, like Nijyojyo castle, Kyoto Imperial palace,Sanjyu sangendo temple, Kiyomizudera temple, and walk through Sannei-saka to Ninensaka to Yasaka shrine and lastly Gion district. I should show you a bit less sites on that day. Best regards May 17 Hiroshi Y.
