“ Wonderful day in Nara! ”

What a wonderful day in Nara with Makoto!! Starting with a wonderful smile at our hotel in Kyoto, followed by some great history about Japan, we took off for our beautiful tour of Nara. Everything was easy and interesting with Makoto. He was so well prepared, had maps and historical chronology and explained the historical facts precisely yet concisely. We got the highlights, with the beauty of avoiding most crowds, and had the most delicious lunch. While visiting, we mentioned our interest in a tea ceremony (perhaps in Kyoto the next day) and before we knew it, he had called the local tea ceremony in Nara and had figured out an option for us to have one there (he said there were less people at these in Nara). We strolled in that direction and when we realized we were having a private ceremony at the “general one”, we were enchanted and so thankful. His genuine and caring approach, his lightheartedness toward our change of plans and his overall gentleness was just enjoyable and wonderful for a full day of touring. Makoto, thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful day with us and in hopes of seeing you in Paris one day soon!
