“ Tour of Kyoto ”

Mack was on time and waiting for us at the agreed upon spot of Osaka station. We gave him a list of several places we were interested in and asked him to plan our day. It was a seamless adventure from start to finish! He even threw in street experiences, food and sake tasting, from quaint shops off the beaten path. He gave us a little history about Buddhism and the Shinto religion while we were on the train and he had a visual handout for us about the places we would visit today. I would highly recommend him to anyone! He gave us some recommendations about spots to visit in Osaka on our last day.

MAKOTO:

Dear Martha, Thanks for your nice comments. I am very pleased that you have enjoyed the tour. I have enjoyed very much especially the visit of Daitokuji, where no other tourist is visiting here, and felt that we owned the temple. I also enjoyed being with you for shopping souvenirs and tasting Sake. Thanks again for your choosing me of your guide. MAKOTO
