Kiyomizu Temple

You can wear kimono to do sightseeing in Kyoto.  I took 8 American guests to guide the Temple of the Golden Pavillion, Heian Shrine, Kiyomizu Temple, Fushimi-Inari Shrine, Nijo Casle, Nishiki Market, and Gion area for three days. While some Japanese were suffering from heat stroke because of hot and humid summer, women guests enjoyed wearing Kimono and waking around Kiyomizu Temple. They took many commemorative pictures.

Fushimi-Inari Shrine

According to Trip Advisor, a popular website, Fushimi Inari Shrine won first place in the ranking of the most popular sightseeing spots for foreign tourists in Japan two years in a row.  Whatever you say, Senbon torii, or one thound torii gates, are very rare and you can not see them in any other shrines in Japan.

We had Hideo as our guide for a Hiroshima Tour. We were staying at Osaka and he picked us up at our Osaka Hotel and directed us to the Shinlansen fast train by local train. This was absolutely stress free and I would recommend it. We had Hideo for close to 12 hours from our Hotel and back. This made things very easy. His English is good and he had excellent knowledge. We were a group of 8 and he ...

We enjoyed touring the Shihmizu area with Hideo. He was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us to many places. Our only suggestion for the future is that because he is rather soft-spoken a microphone and speaker would be helpful as it was difficult to hear him in the back of the van. Other than that we wholeheartedly recommend him
