We had an amazing morning st the Shrine. Lee took us to the most amazing places on the hillside, and he is so knowledgable in so many fields, whether it is religion, Moss, gardens or whatever you ask. Highly recommended. Eva and Atle

Besides being very familiar with Alternative Fushimi Inari area, Lee gave very insightful and interesting stories behind what we saw at the Inari. He managed the pace of the tour well and he responded to our questions. The walk was refreshing.
