“ Kyoto Tour ”

Keiko did an excellent job of guiding our family of 8 around Kyoto. Our ages ranged from 12 years old to 85 years old. We saw the Fushimi Inari Shrine, Nijo Castle, Golden Pavillion, Gion and Kenninji Temple. At the end of the day, Keiko also arranged for a nice, private tea ceremony. We were able to stay on schedule with the use of a taxi. She provided a good overview of each site that we visited. We enjoyed the detailed explanation and tour of Gion. For lunch, Keiko reserved a couple tables for us at a local restaurant. I thought that was a nice touch because we didn't have to wait for a table. Perfect! She has a very pleasant and upbeat personality that made the tour enjoyable.

Keiko:

Dear Jeffrey, I am really glad to hear from you. Firstly, I would like to say thank you for giving me so enjoyable time with your big family. It was my unique experience where I offered the tour in English and in Japanese(in the Kyoto dialect) at the same time. I also enjoyed the conversation on American and Japanese school systems with your kids. As you mentioned, we could maximize our tour by taxi. Thanks to that, we could visit more sites, have a nice time at the tea ceremony in one day! I hope this tour will remain in your heart. When you have a chance to come back to Japan sometime, please let me know. I am willing to guide you more in Kyoto. Lastly, thank you very much for choosing me as your guide. I offer my very best wishes to you and your family in the US and Japan. Best regards, Keiko
