“ Two Beautiful evenings in Kyoto with Ryoji ”
Not knowing what to do and how to get around Kyoto in the evenings, I decided to book Ryoji’s evening tours and he definitely did not disappoint. Our whole family (my husband, our three adult children and myself) enjoyed Ryoji’s company for two consecutive evenings.Ryoji was a very good tour guide. He gave us a walking tour of the Gion district for two nights showing us different spots each night. He impressed us as he was very thorough in his description and expalnation of the minute details seen in the old houses along the alleys in the central district of Kyoto and in the Gion district. He pointed out a lot of things only seen in areas where geikos and maikos still exist.
The evenings we spent with Ryoji had been truly memorable.He took us in one of the hidden gardens that was lit up in the evenings and we truly delighted in this experience. He didn’t mind taking us to the Yasaka shrine even if it was out of the plan. Being lovers of Japanese food, he knew just where to take us. We had dinner at a conveyor sushi place during our first evening and in a hole-in-a wall ramen place on our second and last evening. We had the time of our lives enjoying Japanese sushi and real good ramen. And the prices were really affordable. Thanks, Ryoji! You are my daughter’s favorite tour guide!
Worthy to note are the email exchanges I had with Ryoji months before our tour. He made sure we had a great time with him by asking for our preferences beforehand. I really appreciate all your efforts, Ryoji! Hope to see you in the future! Cheers!
