This was fun since we had a person who spoke English with us. We especially enjoyed his commentary on everyday practices of the Japanese. The tour guide makes the tour worth the activity. The price was very reasonable and time was provided to take pictures and to buy treats or items from the vendors. We decided to separate the morning tour from the afternoon tour. The only issue was the people that did two tours in one day - they very tired, especially those with the small children.
The morning tour ending with lunch, and the opportunity to do some art work, was so fun. The tour guide seemed in a hurry but she probably was, due to the schedule. We loved separating the morning tour from the afternoon tour, it was great for us.
