“ Kyoto full day, Kobe half a day ”

6 of us were guided by Mr Kazuhiro in both Kyoto and Kobe. He was an attentive informative guide, the fastest walker any of us had ever encountered! We covered a lot of ground and thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

“ Osaka walking tour ”

Kazu kindly meet us at the cruise terminal in Kobe where we transferred to Osaka by train. We used trains ,subways & walking during the day. It would have been an advantage saving lots of time to have bought a day pass instead of individual tickets. The time spent waiting to enter Osaka castle & in the castle would have been better spent seeing something else. The majority of our group of 8 found the amount of walking excessive & also the pace too fast. Kazuhiko is very fit so for older clients he needs to slow down. We enjoyed the day although exhausted on return to the ship. We appreciated being meet & returned to Kobe cruise terminal as this was our first time using the train system.

Kazuhiko:

Dear Ms.Margaret I appreciate your feedback. I'm sorry that I made you walk a lot and I walked fast. Moreover, I' m sorry I made you tired. I sincerely hope this experience was memorable. I sincerely hope you visit Japan again. Thank you!! Best regards, Kazuhiko Goto
