Visiting the Highlights of Kyoto and Nara
I like traveling. It is like an encounter with the unknown.
Wherever I go, churches, museums and historical sightseeing spots interests me.
Helpful to learn its culture and history , people's lives.
Enjoy talking with local people and sometimes eat and drink with them.
People are friendly here.
Like many other cities everywhere, Kyoto and Nara are also interesting cities.
But these two have something different from others.
They were the capital of Japan until 1870.
Current Japan was formed on the basis of their culture and civilization.
They were the object of worship and adoration for a long time.
Here you can see what you miss in huge modern urban cities.
If you want to feel Japan, probably they are the ideal cities that satisfy your curiosity.
Looking forward to seeing those who are interested in learning Japanese things.

Please let me know if you have any other ideas about your Kyoto/Nara tour.
I can meet you at the cruise ship terminal of Kobe or Osaka Port. Please note that it takes about 90 minutes to reach Nara from Kobe, and 60 minutes from Osaka, so this will reduce out time to tour in Nara.

Chose the perfect guide for this tour! Mike is a retired History teacher and gave us a good background of the temples and shrines we went to in Nara and Kyoto. He came with prepared illustrations, handouts and a booklet he wrote himself, to better understand Japanese history as we walked the streets of Nara and Kyoto. To top it all, he offered to take pictures of our family at the sights we visited and he did take pretty good shots! Thanks Mike for a great day, though rainy and cold. You made our day!
