I am so glad I chose Hiroko to help us see the beautiful sites around Kyoto. She had our day planned out including the itineraries, mode of transportation and activities very well. For in fact, my children and I even had extra time to enjoy some green tea ice cream with her, and authentic soba for lunch. Up until now, we are still talking about how we loved these experience. Hiroko has excellent command of English ( she teach English in Japan by the way), and the way she shared with us Kyoto's history and culture, you could tell that she is really passionate and proud with what she does. I know that I made the best decision in choosing Hiroko. She was very patient with my teen age children's questions and made sure that they are comfortable and kept their interest and attention. We only not had a best guide that day, but we also found a new friend. Thank you so much Hiroko for everything. You made our trip extra special. You will always be included in our memories of Kyoto.
Dear Anne, Thank you very much for your heart-warming and generous review. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the ice cream and soba lunch in Arashiyama. Both you and your children are nice and intelligent, and it was a great pleasure to be your guide in Kyoto. I hope that you will revisit here to experience more in the near future. Please kindly give my warm regards to your children. All the best, Hiroko
