“ Hero is the best! ”

After having trouble navigating Japan and Kyoto on our first trip we decided to hire a guide and we hired the best guide ever! Hero met us at our hotel and was friendly, polite, accommodating, he took us to the Nishiki food market and we were introduced to many types of Japanese foods we would never have tried on our own. We then had lunch at a fantastic resteraunt that Hero recommended. The afternoon was spent touring Gion district and the Funishimi shrine. Hero was very knowledgeable, friendly, worked in with our needs and wants, even helped us to buy our bullet train tickets to get us back to Tokyo Narita airport! When we come back I WILL be asking Hero to guide us again! Thank you Hero for making our trip truly memorable!

Thank you for writing sweet review!!It was nice to meet you in Kyoto!Tony practiced Karate before in Australia. So he knew Japanese mentality. And Tony couple respected Japanese culture and local rule. So I was happy to guide 2 of you!!Tony was interested in Nishiki market sample foods.
