Yumiko introduced us to the sights and sounds of Kyoto. She was kind enough to explain the efficient Japanese train system as we were guided through both East and West Kyoto. Her knowledge of the history of the city, it’s shrines and temples was exceptional. The ease with which Yumiko moved us from train to walking to buses and when appropriate taxis seemed effortless and we were able to see a combination of 8 shrines and temples in kyoto including the sensational gold and silver temples. Yumiko was also able to set us in the right direction to visit the sensational Miho museum which is about an hour out of Kyoto. As well as showing us the sights Yumiko also introduced us to some local restaurants that we would never have found on our own and the food was ‘to die for’. If you are wanting help getting around Kyoto and having the stress taken out of getting around I would recommend Yumiko as your guide!
Thank you so much for your good review. I enjoyed your company and I am glad if you had a good time in Kyoto. Enjoy rest of your stay in Japan and of course Rugby game. Yumiko
