Hiroko guided us through Kyoto for 6 hours and it was a wonderful experience. She took us on the train and subway expertly so that we were able to see as much of Kyoto as possible in a day. We never could have accomplished this on our own. We had tea at a gorgeous little place in the Gion and learned so much about Kyoto and the culture. Unfortunately, the lines and crowds were so long at one temple that we decided to forego the last one. We were exhausted by then and Hiroko escorted us to a terrific ramen place to end the day. I think we overplanned and tried to do too much, but Hiroko did her best to take care of us and make sure that we were ok. She is a lovely woman and I highly recommend her as a guide.
Debbie, I feel truly honored by your generous and kind review. You and Peter are so nice, and it was all my pleasure being your guide in Kyoto. I hope that you will visit over here again in the near future as there are many more to see. Please send my warm regards to Peter. Kind regards, Hiroko
