A Recent Review of this tour

Our second tour with Koji in Kyoto was very nice and less physically consuming than the first as we visited temples, zen gardens and the philosopher's path under a milder heat wave and less slopes ! And Koji was as energetic, dedicated, well organized and full of information about the sites as the first day, so it was a great occasion of discovery of a unique city .
