KEN! <3 :D! Ken is an amazing tour guide, honestly! He shared so much history of Kyoto and Japan in general with us. He took us to all the spots we wanted to visit and more! We stopped at wonderful spots that are secretive that only he knows with amazing views to take pictures. Even when I was terribly sick, Ken was so kind and considerate. I highly recommend Ken! Thank you, Ken, for being a great guide!
