A Recent Review of this tour

Yoriko is Fabulous. I booked her for 2 days (Kyoto). Our 2nd (April 29) in Osaka was better than day 1- no rain. We visited Osaka Castle, Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine, and lunch & free time in Dotombori area - among others. I had asked about finding a used kimono shop - after lunch Yoriko escorted me to one she had researched. It seems - just ask and she can deliver. Since it was Golden Week, she timed to avoid crowds and also experience them & gave hints for "best" photo ops. You won't be sorry with Yoriko.
