It was a great opportunity to get to know Japanese Buddhist traditions. Komiya-san was very friendly and took a lot of time to answer questions. She welcomed us to her beautiful temple and made this an unforgettable experience. The interpreter did a great job as well. I would definitely recommend this tour!
