We had a great day...

Neil R

We had a great day with Hirotake, whose superb English enabled us to learn a lot more about the city on our day out. We visited a wide variety of places, from shrines to a matcha café, posh department stores to a shop selling cheap second hand

Fulvio did a great job...

Brion N | Mar 2020
