We really enjoyed our time with Chizuko. She put together a half day tour that allowed us to see the most important sights in Kyoto in a half day and had great explanations for the history of the area and the sights we visited and how they related to Japanese history, She was enjoyable to be with and had a good sense of humor. I would recommend her tours to anyone visiting this area.
