We loved our tour!!! The food was extraordinary and Marcin was an excelent guide who gave us great context and inforamtion not only about food but of Japan as a whole Really really recomd the tour.
This tour was a great introduction to Kyoto's shrines and temples. The guide described Shinto, the indigenous religion of Japan, and the introduction of Buddhism. We came away with a better understanding of the symbols at places, the culture and history.
