I joined Fushimi Inari tour alone and I could spend great time during Kenji's tour!! He knows a lot of information about Fushimi and Kyoto and he is very friendly to anyone. I highly recommend this tour to everybody. 伏見稲荷のツアーに参加させて頂きました。ホストのケンジさんのお陰でとても楽しい時間を過ごせましたし、良い思い出になりました。ケンジさんは伏見稲荷の何から何まで知り尽くしていて、とても驚かされました。まだ参加したことの無い方には是非オススメします!
