“ A great way to spend a day in Nara and Osaka ”

Nobuko, thank you for a very enjoyable day in Nara and Osaka. Thank you for getting Mariko as our volunteer guide at the Tado-ji Templs. We had vert good chats along the way and we learned alot of your culture too. For those who wish to get Nobuko-san as a guide, we highly recommend her. As mentioned in her profile, she is an English tutor but also a Yoga teacher! We (my wife and I) also booked a van as we were travelling with my 2 year old grand-daughter, my son and his wife. The van is very expensive but worth it as this was the third city we visited and on our 8th of a 10 day sojourn. We will pass on our recommendations to our friends who will visit Japan. Arigato Gozaimasu!
