Outstanding Kyoto experience thanks to Eri a native of Kyoto who is both gracious and charming. She has both a great historical perspective but adds commentary about today's social climate in a d around Kyoto. She met our bullet train from Tokyo and gave us a complete view of the top sights plus ended with a most wonderful private TEA HOUSE ceremony. Both our friends and traveling companions loved the day as much as we did. Thank you Eri. M/M Steven Heydt and M/M Elliott Kostick
