“ Kyoto without the usual crowds ”

We left it to Richard to devise a slightly off the beaten track itinerary for us in Kyoto and we enjoyed several temples and shrines that were not at all crowded. He was quite a character and entertained us with some history of shinto and buddhism and the shogun era. He hosted a sake tasting which was interesting but ultimately a bit pricey.

Richard:

Thank you so much for your kind words. I did try to take you to places that were off the beaten path and teach you things that you would've not learned with any other guide. I am not sure why ¥3000 per person for a premium sake tasting of sakes you will probably never get to experience again was high for you in an authentic 300 year old former Samurai residence with homemade Japanese appetizers was expensive to you but....... Six years first complaint. I do apologize. If you ever get a chance to come again we will not book that. Kind regards Richard
