https://*******.navitime.com/en/area/jp/spot/00011-060085400/ Deanna san, I am so happy to go with you and your family for this 3 days. Em cảm ơn, hẹn gặp lại ạ. Đây là link của một nhà hàng Sushi mà chúng ta đi rồi nhé.
He was very knowledgeable and pleasant to be around. Besides all the suggested itinerary, he brought us to local attractions and green tea shops. He was also caring and flexible. He often checked if we were okay with the speed and adjusted the plan or patiently waited for us when we were tired or shopping. My family enjoyed our time with him a lot. Thank you Kato for making my Kyoto and Nara trip a memorable one.
We used Shigeyuki for a one day tour of Kyoto including Fushimi, Sanjusanjen-Do temple, Gion area, Kinkaku-Ji temple, Arishiyama Monkey Park and Arishiyama Bamboo Park. He met us at Tokyo Station. From there we took buses and trains to go everywhere. Shigeyuki knew or determined which bus or train to take, the time to get to each site and the time to spend there, to get us back to the station by 5:30ish (arrived in Kyoto at 8:30am). He told us important points about each site and it was very comfortable hanging out with him all day. He also took great pictures!
We thrilled to have met Shigeyuki and be our tour guide in Nara and Osaka, both cities are beautiful- Shigeyuki is very informative about the places we went and we actually became friends- if you need guide to the places he is doing tours I highly recommend Shigeyuki- Thanks man for touring us around Osaka ad Nara!
