The day we spent with Hiroko was fun and we saw and learned so much. By the end of the day we felt that we had spent time with a good friend. She was able to show us a great deal of her city making excellent use of public transportation. She also spoke to us about Japanese culture. Spending time and interacting with people is as valuable as visiting the impressive sites.
JoAnne, I feel highly honored by your kind, generous and quick review. I really appreciate it. As you and your family are nice and intelligent and were considerate enough to make me comfortable during the tour, I enjoyed being your guide in Kyoto. I hope that you will have a great time for the rest of your stay here in Japan. Kind regards, Hiroko
