I traveled to Kyoto with 2 of my children ages 20 and 19. We hired Koichi as our guide and could not have been happier. He spoke excellent English. He took us to see many interesting sites in Kyoto. He had a strong knowledge of the history of the places we visited. We also wanted an authentic Japanese restaurant that was not a tourist trap and could accommodate my vegan daughter and son with a lactose allergy. We had an incredible multi course meal. We also went to a traditional Japanese tea cafe and had tea served by a tea master. It was a memorable day for my children and I. We could not be more appreciative of the incredible experiences all day long. As a dad, I scored a big win today. I highly recommend koichi if you get the chance.
Dear Mr. Richard Thank you for your quick review. I appreciate your compliments and thank you for the green tea you treated to us. I’m glad you are satisfied with the visit to the temples and green tea café I was impressed with your being quick and eager learner. Please convey my regards to your son and daughter. Have a good trip and enjoy Gyokuro green tea at your home. Sincerely yours, Koichi
