Day trip in Kyoto with Yasuro.

Hi. My family and I recently traveled to Tokyo for a one week stay. While there we arranged, through TripleLights, for several day tours. One of our tours, a day tour from Tokyo to Kyoto, was arranged and chaperoned by Yasuro. He picked us up at our hotel in Diaba at 7 AM sharp and we took the Shinkansen to Kyoto and back. Yasuro had planned an itinerary that included a number of sites we were interested in visiting in Kyoto, including the Fushimi Inari Shrine. The day was carefully planned out to make the best use of our time without causing us to feel rushed. We had ample time to spend at each location. Yasuro was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about Kyoto. Near the end of our trip he even took us to a shopping street downtown that was filled with numerous, interesting shops and eateries. All in all we had a wonderful day and Yasuro delivered us back to the hotel by 9:30 PM, tired but very pleased.

Yasuro C.

Dear Mr. Tony, Thank you very much for your warm review on me! However, my regret is Nishiki Shopping Street that was too long for you to walk through. I am really sorry about it. Anyhow I am very pleased that all of you came back home in US without big troubles. Take care of yourself. Thank you again. Best regards, Yasuro
