MAY 2014 / Kyoto Travel Plan
I have a sick tendency to look at roadkill when I drive by ...especially the cows! HOLY COW!!
We met up with Guillaume and he took us around Gion district and through the side streets Brought us to a Okonomiyaki place that only locals know of and it was very tasty. HE also gave us alot of tips and pointers of places to go around Kyoto, which was very helpful. Overall it was a pleasant enough experience.
One thing that is not mentioned in the Post is that he charges 15/pp per HOUR. On Meetrip it doesn't say that so when you pay you only pay the per person rate. Originally we agreed on 3 hours while we were emailing back and forth, but when we met up with him he told us it was the hourly rate, so we had to cut the time down to 2 hours because I didn't have any more money on hand.
We met up with Tomi in Kawagoe and it was a wonderful experience. Kawagoe doesn't seem to have many foreigners, but moreso Japanese tourists. He communicated very well in English and was very charming and polite with a great sense of humor. We walked around the village and he explained some of the history. Took us to a delicious Udon place and ordered for us since the servers did not speak English.
It was such a pleasant day trip(from TOkyo) because of Tomi Masato. I feel like we made a friend in Japan! Thank you again!
