“ An Enriching Experience ”

I greatly enjoyed my trip to Koya-san with Hiroyuki-san. He is a fine and learned gentleman. He was happy to share his wisdom on esoteric Buddhism, it's concept of 'universe,' and the history of Koya-san, which added context and enhanced the experience. He was also happy to listen about the culture and practices of my country, making the experience mutually enriching. Koya-san is a mystical place. Hiroyuki-san made me appreciate its sacredness the moment we entered Daimon Gate, which is the starting point. Walking alongside Hiroyuki-san through its quiet streets, amidst light snowfall, visiting its snow-capped shrines and temples, and having warm tea and conversation with him, are memories I will treasure. As we left Koya-san and reentered the world below, I felt that I became a slightly better human being. Thank you, Hiroyuki-san, for this experience.

HIROYUKI:

Daniel-san, Thank you very much for everything during the tour. I am very glad that you liked Koyasan very much. I myself enjoyed the tour and conversations with you. I learned a lot about Philippines and Philippine culture from you. As I am interested in culture and food, I googled cultural heritages and food in Philippine after going home. I found that they are very attractive. Especially, historic city of Vigan and sweets such as buko pie, ensaimada and halo halo attract me a lot. Thank you very much for such a great review. Your review encourages me a lot. Please keep in touch, I look forward to seeing you again. Arigato, Matane!
