“ Best day in Japan ”
My husband and I took a cruise around Japan and we decided the ships tour would not suit our interests in Kyoto. Toichi met us at our ship in Kobe, then we took the train and metro to Kyoto.

Dear Jim and Marilyn,
Thank you very much for your lovely comments! Your comments make me believe that I am in the right profession!
To be honest with you, as I am not from Kyoto, I am not necessarily knowlegable about the city. So, whenever I guide
my guests in Kyoto, I am not totally confident. Therefore, you comments are very helpful to me and I feel I need to know the city more!
If you ever have another chance to visit Kansai region in the future, please find me again. I would love to show you Osaka,
a unique, vibrant city I was born and grew up in. Thank you for finding me again.
