It was a pleasure to have met Miss Katsuko in my very rushed and short trip to Kyoto. Her knowledge and insight on airport transfer, public transport, locations of hotel (relative to tourist spots) was unbelievable. Her planning of my half day trip was spot on and even prior to that, the email communication between us was prompt. Great experience!
