Yoshiharu suggested this shrine but cautioned that the entrance fee was higher than most others. It only opens from 9:30-12:30 and requires advance reservation. We agreed. It was worth the price and time to see it. The garden was tranquil and authentic Japanese. It brought you into a magical world far away from the hustling and bustling cities in Japan. Sanjusangendo Temple was another temple where thousands of Buddha statues mesmerized you. Yoshiharu was very conscientious about his work and we enjoyed his company.
Dear Christine Thank you for your not only evaluation but also your writings. I am very happy to hear the comments. Now I hope your traveling will be enjoyable and safe. God speed! Thank you Yoshi
We had an excellent tour thanks to our guide Mr Yoshi. Despite of bad weather, lot of rain, he ensured we were able to complete the tour exactly how we wanted. Thanks to him we were able to modify the itinerary and visit only the areas we wanted to see. He was very kind and helpful. We are grateful to Mr Yoshi for showing us the best parts of kyoto. We had a lovely tour and we take back some great memories with us.
Dear Meher Thank you for your evaluation. You were always cheery and good friends. I also enjoyed the tour among you. And I am happy to hear you had good memories. Again, thank you.
Kind, friendly and very well informed. Great Guide.
Dear Vera Thank you for your high evaluation. We were very lucky to see Maiko in Gion! It was my first time to see Maiko very closely. I hope you had a good time in this tour. Thank you. Yours sincerely, Yoshi
We had a thorough and fun tour with Yoshi in Kyoto. It was me, my wife and our 8 year old daughter. We covered a lot of ground and saw many of the main sites in Kyoto. Yoshi helped us navigate the trains and gave us a bit of background on each of the locations we visited. Thanks Yoshi!!
Dear Christopher It is too much for me. I guess we should have had a coffee break. And your daughter is incredible! I have never heard of a person who counts number of shrine gate! And her notebook reminds me StarTrek, Tuvok. Maybe your daughter will be incredible person. Anyway thank you!!
