A Recent Review of this tour

Our Kyoto tour with Yoriko was really wonderful. She tailored the tour to our interest, and met us at our hotel. We traveled all over the city by public transportation and managed to tour three major attractions in depth: Nijo Castle, Kinkakuji Temple (golden pavilion), and Sanju-Sangenndo Temple, with more than 1000 Buddhist statues. Yoriko is a lovely person with a great depth of knowledge of Japanese history, architecture, and art. We were very grateful to be able to experience Kyoto with her.
