Samurai museum and bhuddist temple

Nao was an excellent tour guide. Other than myself, my mom and my dad were the only other people on the tour. Nao accompanied us on the trains to get to the samurai museum and to the bhuddist temple. It was also very nice of him to Take us to the vegetarian restaurant for the lunch. The samurai museum was very interesting and informative and the temple was very beautiful. I enjoyed the tour very much. It was also very nice of Nao to meet us at the hotel to take us on the tour. Suzette Carrillo
