“ we met with Coco's sister ”

1. Kinkakuji(Golden Temple) 2. Nijyo castle(Place) 3. Nijyo Jinya(Ninjya House) 4. Another temple in Kyoto( don't exact know how to spell it here) Her sister Kimo is super nice and helpful in getting us around. We enjoyed our time with her and she even give us an extra hour for getting slightly late to our AirBnB location. We had a good discussion about where to visit and how to schedule it. Then we went to take the bus to our destinations. Kimo helped us get around with all necessary logistics. She also talked us through the tour. Her English was ok but we wished that she can tell us a little bit more about the history.


Thank you for choosing me! Sorry for not attend but my sister said she had great time with you and your family. Here is the message from her. It was very hot day but you and your family were very nice. Thank you for your kindness and beer & gyoza! Hope you visit back to Kyoto again!!!!

“ Thank you Coco ”

We had a wonderful day with Kumi. Coco carefully and completely arranged for our day in Kyoto to be spent with her sister Kumi. We visited all the places that we wanted to visit and had a most enjoyable day.


So glad to hear that you had wonderful time with Kumi! Sorry that I could not attend, but she covered me perfect!
