It was a pleasure to have Toshiba as our guide for one morning. She was friendly, obliging and we could communicate well in English. She did a good job of taking us to the places we requested. I would happily have her as my guide again.
Our family had a wonderful time in Gion with the help of Toshiyo. Our pace was just right, especially in that we were with my 75-year old mother, and Toshiyo was flexible enough to adjust the pace.
