Eric has been most helpful in helping my family and me plan our stay in Kyoto. We have not been sure what we want to see/do while in Kyoto and Eric has been very flexible and excellent to communicate with. He has provided us very detailed itinerary ideas along with the associated costs of each. Thank you Eric.
