“ Excellent one-day tour in Kyoto ”

Koichi was the guide for my 12 year old son and I for one day in Kyoto (September 2019). Koichi met us at the hotel on time and our day was planned nicely by Koichi to correspond to the specific time we had alloted (not a lot of "down time" and we also were by no means "rushed"). It was a warm day and Koichi worked hard throughout the day to make our day informative, as relaxed as it could be with the temparature, and fun. Koichi is extremely knowledgeable about the history and background of Japan religions, including Buddhism and Shinto and thus was able to articulate some of the key differences in the temples/shrines we visited and how it correlates to history. His knowledge and experience was also helpful in pointing out some of the specific architectual nuances and religious symbols embedded in the architecture. Other: a) Koichi's English was very good and it was easy to communicate with him. He chose a lovely traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch which my son enjoyed. b) Koichi was able to answer all of my questions (and my son's!) and he related well to my son also. c) His pictures are nice and it adds a very nice touch to the tour and a differentiator! If I was to come back to Kyoto again and wanted to experience another tour (different places) I would look to use Koichi again. I would recommend him
