“ Fantastic time in Kyoto with Richard ”

Thank you Richard for an amazing day in Kyoto, we learned a lot. Richard is a superb guide with endless stories and jokes. He is a walking google of Japanese history and culture. We thoroughly enjoyed the day walking around Kyoto and got ourselves thoroughly immersed in Japanese culture and history. The food tour in Nishiki market was unforgettable! Grandma’s little bar tucked away in a super tiny location was the best place for sake. The tea ceremony he organized for us was really special. Highly recommended!

Richard:

Thank you Girlie, I am glad you guys had a great time! Now that you have had the real Japanese 'sit down' on tatami experience, you are good! You can check that off your list!! Angela says hi and thanks you guys for coming to the Tea Ceremony! Have a safe trip home and if there is ever anything I can do for you, do not hesitate to ask!! Kind regards, Richard
