It was a great tour from Osaka to Kyoto and Nara in a day with Mitsuyuki who was very accommodating and friendly. He has a lot of knowledge on the places we visited and great to learn the history of those places. Thank you again for a lovely day although we had rain all day long. I would highly recommended Mitsuyuki services.
