We had a wonderful guide, Isuki. The food was marvelous and varied. The pace of the walk was just right -- no rushing, and we had a very relaxing and delightful evening.

A terrific night with a great fun guide where we learnt, explored and ate the most wonderful selection of Japanese food at different places through the evening. This really set us up for the next 2 weeks of traveling as we knew what we were doing and where to get the best cheapest food. Loved it!
