Kyoto tour

We had a very fulfilling day exploring Kyoto w Tohru. He prepared a full agenda using our desired sites. His knowledge of each item on our itinerary made the experience much more interesting. He maneuvered around the area using many interesting short cuts that gave it a locals feel. His sense of humor was the extra touch! I would call Tohru again anytime. 5 stars.
