    An Australian experience - put on your 'bucket list'

    We have enjoyed ourselves in Kyoto. The photo experience has been a very pleasant one and it has enriched our Japanese journey.
    As we hired a car with only Japanese navigation, it is difficult to navigate. However, the local friendly taxi driver helped us and followed him to our destination. Recommend taxi to destination.
    The ladies here were very kind and made my visit to Kyoto special. Very happy with service and quality of photos. Enjoy.
