Toshiyo was a patient guide---working with us in advance to plan what we wanted to see. We had many suggestions and she always responded well. Even after we in the midst of the Kyoto touring, she was willing to make adjustments when we thought of other places that we wanted to visit. Toshi was always prompt and pleasant. And, her command of English was very good. When there were sites with which she was not totally familiar, she always made sure that there was an appropriate "volunteer" English speaking guide to be with us. If I had one very small suggestion it would be that she slow her walking a bit when necessary.
Dear Jerome Thank you very much for having me as a guide. I hope you could see as many places as possible during your limited precious time. Also I hope you enjoyed and liked Kyoto and Nara. And I feel very sorry for have walked too fast even when there ware ups and downs. I appreciate having me for three days and a half day. I hope to see you again some day. Best regards. Toshiyo
