Kyozo was great. Very knowledgable, east going and fun. Just seemed like going on a tour with an uncle.

We had our 18 month old and he was very patient and even watched him so we could get pictures or closer to a sight.

Highly recommended.

Thanks Kyozo!

Dear sender of the warm message. I was so happy being with your nice family at the spot of 500 years ago, then of more than 2000 years ago, finally of present time. I wondered if I could explain my home town having everlasting life in each history. Please come back again to hunt another spot which, I believe possible, by your adventure spirit. Sincerely yours, the guide who received fresh/active spirit of finding fact.
