We were in town for a conference and our sightseeing time was somewhat limited. I am so glad we were able to find Fuhito, as he made the full day packed with some of the best arts, culture, dining, history, and just a great day. Fuhito was able to add tremendous value by sharing the whole story of the many sights we visited. We felt like we were getting the inside scoop as he toured us around.
