We had a great time on the bike tour of Northern Kyoto with Takaaki. He led us on a journey to many interesting and less traveled sites, explaining their significance along the way. We also learned about religion and culture in Japan. Takaaki treated us to snacks as well as sweets at the thousand year old sweet shop. We had ample time to explore Kinkakuji. Above all, Takaaki has a great attitude, and it was a joy to spend a few hours with him. This tour was a highlight of our time in Japan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, MIchael! It was a beautiful day after the typhoon swirled away and one of the best weather for a bike tour. I was happy to show you small places that are easily missed by travellers and even locals. There are a bunch of places you could visit for your second trip. I'd be happy to help you explore further.
