“ Cultural enlightenment ”

Our group of 3 had a fascinating day with Hiroyuki walking the shrines,temples and waterfall of Nachi. The relationship of Buddhism and Shintoism became much clearer to us. He was an expert in explaining the history and significance of the Kudo Kumano Pilgrimage. Additionally he picked a great restaurant for lunch and was very helpful in getting us settled at our hotel. I highly recommend him


First of all, thank you very much for coming to Japan in this kind of situation. I sincerely hope that you had enjoyed not only Kumano but also other places in Japan. It was my pleasure to explain about Shintoism and Buddhism Unite Theory in Kumano. Even in Japan, many of us do not know whether we are Shintoists or Buddhists. And thank you very much for writing such a kind review in the middle of your tour. I appreciate it very much. Say hello to Chris-san and Thomas-san. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Hiroyuki
