“ 9 hours to see Kyoto ”

Kenji was knowledgeable, efficient, and flexible while showing us his home town of Kyoto. He expertly guided us through the Osaka subway and train stations, saving us valuable time we would have spent trying to read signs and figure out our route. He recommended okonomiyaki for lunch at a small restaurant in or near the Gion district and it was delicious!

Kenji:

Dear Barbara-san, Thank you for your excellent review of my tour. I'm very glad that you liked my home town Kyoto and my recommeded lunch. With the limited day-trip time from Osaka I managed to guide you several major tourists spots but Kyoto has plenty of sites worth visiting and facinating attractions. So I do recommed you to stay at least several days in Kyoto next time to enjoy more. Please contact me anytime if you need me in future. Best regards, Kenji
