A Recent Review of this tour

We were very fortunate to have Chizuko. She took us on a visit to the Inari Shrine in Kyoto. The other was a visit to a family-owned restaurant in the general area where we lunched on tasty okonomiyakis (Japanese pancakes). Chizuko speaks English quite well and she taught us many things about Japanese customs and culture. For us, she was both a tour guide and a friend and we enjoyed her companionship immensely. I recommend her highly for tourists who visit the Kyoto area
