My friend and I had a great time with Yoshiko. She was waiting for us at our hotel and took us to see everything that was on our list. We were unsure if we would be able to get to everything on our list, but Yoshiko made sure that we saw everything.
Iwatayama Monkey Park
Adashino Nenbutsuji Temple
Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple
Saga Scenic Railway
We really enjoyed the information Yoshiko provided about the area. She also provided the cost for entrance to all of the temples, bus transportation and the train ride, which was very helpful when budgeting for our day in Arashiyama.
She even went so far as to purchase the Saga Rail Pass tickets for us ahead of time as November is a very popular time of year and the tickets usually sell out.
She was also able to accommodate my friend’s dietary restrictions and chose restaurants that were not only delicious but affordable.
She really went above and beyond and we truly enjoyed our tour of the Arashiyama area of Kyoto.
We would definitely request her again if we are back in this area and would recommend her to anyone traveling to the Kyoto area.
