“ Our amazing day with Koichi san! ”

We could not have had a better guide for our day in Kyoto than Koichi san! From our initial contact he planned a wonderful day for us and accommodated our special request for a vegetarian lunch. He met us early at our hotel and we started our adventure. Mid-morning he accommodated our impromptu request to visit Arashiyama Monkey Park, which was a highlight for us, especially our daughter. He even helped my daughter get her first goshuincho book and first (of many) goshuins. He explained culture and history and taught us how to properly do the purification ritual at temples/shrines. And he took so many wonderful family photos for us! Another highlight of our time with him was an amazing lunch at the restaurant at Ryoanji Temple. We ate Yudofu in a tatami room that look out onto a beautiful traditional Japanese garden. Koichi san is kind and generous. It was a whirlwind day and at the end we felt as if we had a made a new friend. I am already recommending Kocihi san to other travelers and hope that we will have the pleasure of meeting him again!

Koichi:

Hi! Donna san. Thank you for writing me such a wonderful comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. I'm so happy to have been your guide. I think we were very lucky since we could see beautiful cherry blossoms for that time of the season. I would like to have a chance to guide you next time too. I really hope to see you in the near future. Koichi
