“ Wonderful tour ”

Knowledgeable and kind. Keiko brought us to many beautiful areas of Arashiyama. This was an excellent experience and would recommend to our friends! Many thanks Keiko!

Dear Erin, I am very happy to hear from you. It was not so nice weather, but you were very lucky to have seen the autumn colors which encapsulate the beauty of Arashiyama. Of course, each season has its own beauty so if you have a chance, please visit Arashiyama again in other seasons! Thank you again for joining my tour. I hope I can see you again sometime soon.
