“ The amazing Yoshihisa-san ”

Yoshihisa-san is one of the rare gems you will ever meet during your trip, especially if you love learning Japanese history and culture. I had read a lot about Japanese history before but during our tour Yoshihisa-san made us understand so much more. Myfamily had a booked a 2 day tour with Yoshihisa-san and as usual, we wanted to visit the famous tourists sites of Kyoto. These were more of the typical spots you find on a "Top Ten" places to visit in Kyoto. Thankfully Yoshihisa-san convinced me to see some other places as well, which we have no regrets and in fact feel so lucky to have visited them. Some of the places he took us to allowed us to catch the amazing Autumn fall of Kyoto. My family and I will never forget our experience at the Jojakkoji Temple where we saw the most amazing autumn colours. We were surrounded by the most surreal environment where your eyes just can't believe the beauty of the temple and its nature. We took so many pictures there, that we got exhausted of taking pictures for the rest of the day :) Yoshihisa-san also told us many interesting stories of the places we visited, I recall the story of Buddha turning back to tell the priest "You're late!" at the Eikando Temple which was an interesting narrative. Also we were fortunate enough to hear and learn several Haiku Poetry from him and understand the beauty of its meaning. The two days we spent together went by so fast and when our tour ended on the 2nd day, it was hard for us to part. We had taken so many pictures together and these are fond memories we will always treasure. Thank you Yoshihisa-san!

Yoshihisa:

Hi Abilash-san. It is a great honor and a pleasure to receive such a supreme review for my two-day tour in Kyoto. Your deep interest in Japanese history and culture made my job very rewarding and worthwhile. Through this tour I made a new discovery about the temple, Eikando, you visited, thank you so much. Personally I also enjoyed spending the two days with your family a lot. Your wife and child were most lovely during the whole two days. I hope to see you someday in the near future, maybe in our cherry-blossom season. With the warmest regards, Yoshie
