Chizuko stepped it up today. Yesterday was excellent today [the second of three] was brilliant. It was long day but very informative and we visited many wonderful temples. The highlight for us was learning about the Geisha life in the Gion district. Chizuko showed us the homes were the trainees stay, the school they attend, and explained the teahouse culture. What an amazing area. One not to be missed. She also advised the best location to chance upon Geisha and to take photos.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jp, Thank you again for your nice comments. It was a little bit long but really enjoyable for me. Geisha culture is absolutely unique in Kyoto. I am pleased to hear you realized it. Many thanks. Chizuko
