“ Nice Tour and Great Person ”

Prior to the trip, Toshiyo and I communicated several times to finalize what we wanted to see in Kyoto. We did a day trip from Tokyo and she met us at the train station and we were off to our sights. She showed each site very well and used public transportation and taxis if needed. Her English is very very good and she was able to clearly understand and effectively communicate with us. We would certainly use her services again the next time we are in the Kyoto area.

Toshiyo:

Dear Navendra Thank you very much for you having me as your guide. I enjoyed being with you. I am glad you had a good time in Kyoto because you cane all the way to visit Kyoto. I appreciate your visit. Please come back again in spring and autumn. Thank you again. Toshiyo
