Tadashi was very good. I told him what we wanted to do and he staged it out perfectly ending up at the Golden temple at the perfect time of day to get the best light. He knows his history; he taught us a lot about the culture of the people in Kyoto, the ties between shintoism and the various temples, and he has a good sense of humor. We enjoyed his company and he did a great job marshaling the family around and took us on paths that were beautiful and only a local would know about. Highly recommended.
