Had an absolute blast with Ted and Risa. They were both phenomenal tour guides with extensive knowledge of not only the castle itself, but the surrounding city and Japan as a whole. They gave us a number of recommendations for food, and we shared a wonderful bowl of Udon with them at a local spot after our tour. Ted was extremely well-versed in the intricacies of Himeji Castle, and really boosted the experience. Could not recommend them more!

Ted was the best guide ever! He made the experience with his knowledge of the area. He took me to great photo spots I would never find on my own. He was so much fun and a great guide.
