Booking the Kyoto combo tour was the best start of my visit to Japan. Chizuko showed me the Nijo-jo castle and Kinkaku-ji (the golden pavilion), and she explained the history of Japan, the Shogun and the Emperor, and the Buddhist and Shinto religion. After lunch we spend a long time at the Nishiki market, and this was an excellent preparation for eating in Japan. We tried many food samples, and we ended the tour by cooking a meal (sushi, miso soup, vegetables, tempura) in her home.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carina, Thank you for your feedback to my tour. I had nice time with you. I hope you will reproduce the dishes we made in the cooking lesson. See you again in the near future. Best regards, Chizuko
