Meet at the place that’s most anxious free like the hotel we stayed at!
Great overview of Arashiyama that helped establish Kyoto’s connections to the natural world.
Great tour. We learned a lot. We brought a Japanese friend with us and Marcin was great at including her and her knowledge of Japanese culture. She also had her daughter with her and Marcin rolled with having a seven year old along. Our Japanese friend learned a lot on the tour too!
