Initially I was disappointed to find out the private tour was a 6 hour was a primarily walking tour. I am an American senior citizen and was not looking forward to that much walking. However, my tour guide Yuki Taniguchi was so patient and understanding with me. He was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. Yuki often
checked on me to make sure I was comfortable during the time we toured. The 6 hour tour was over before I knew it. Yuki is just that good. I highly recommend him as your tour guide!
