GREAT TOUR! We were the only ones on it so we had a private tour. All the tour leaders are Japanese women who have a lot of knowledge about the traditional culture. I was really impressed by the temple, it has hundreds of red temple gates making a kind of tunnel...I was kind of over temples but this was a highlight. Sake tasting was really fun and the brewery was cool and included a museum type thing.
Great tour. First we went to the fish market and had some free time to look around. Because it wasn't a big group that day the leader personally showed as around and explained what things where, we saw fresh wasabi, shark skin wasabi grinders, seafood etc. After we went to make the sushi and the chef was great. We made a variety of sushi then ate it for lunch.

The forest is excellent. Would have liked more time at the woods and less time at Sausalito. Make sure you get back to the bus early as our bus driver left early!
New Orleans, Louisiana
We had a lovely tour guide that was very informative, but after the Vampire Tour we did the night before I guess we expected a few more spooky stories. There's little shade so take the early tour.
