Kenji is wonderful!

We could not have asked for a better guide to show and share Kyoto with us. Kenji put together a very comprehensive tour for us because we only had one day to see the best sites in Kyoto. Kenji was very thoughtful and provided us with background and context for all we saw including the history of the area and Japan. We highly recommend Kenji and give 5 stars with our thanks. Arigatou gozaimasu Kenji!
