Kung TsuUnited States
We had a really great time. Definitely we would not been able to see everything by ourselves. Tomoko-san made our half day tour feel like a full day! Ok, here is the difference, there were a zillion elementary to JrHS students in massive groups but Tomoko-san maneuvered us like water flowing around stones. We walked though the off beated road where I felt samurai once walked or escorting Gei-ko (ok, I got carried away but hey, I felt it was!) thru the 2 story houses. Kyoto is dreamy. Tomoko, thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kung san, thank you so much for your kind comment! It was my pleasure that you enjoyed the half day tour. I myself enjoyed being with you and you told me interesting stories I didn't know! Kyoto has a lot of charms which cannot be seen from the surface. I hope you will enjoy the western part of Kyoto with Akie san today. I have a jazz gig tonight at a jazz bar called Greenwich House If you have time and energy to go out in the evening, please drop in. Thank you again!
