Sean was the guide for our ride and did an excellent job of showing us around Kyoto. We started in downtown Kyoto and visited Honnoji Temple, then took a scenic route along the Kamogawa (Duck) River to Gion, where we visited three geiko districts and the famous Kenninji Temple.

Our guide, "La La," was knowledgeable, funny, and had a fresh take on everything. She made the experience great. We did the city ride, which was both exciting and a good chunk of exercise (I'd say 25km). This was one of the best things we did during our entire week in Japan.
