Getting around Kyoto:
When we got off of the train from Tokyo, with two heavy bags, the person in the taxi line was this adorable little woman. She argued with Steven about who was going to get the heavy bags in the trunk of her car…. she won. On the ride to the hotel, we discovered that her English was great. Wonderful, we asked if we could hire her as our driver and guide… She became a very important part of our travels through Kyoto. Her name is Natsuko. If you need a knowledgeable driver/guide in Kyoto, send me an email.
She is also a bit of a celebrity around town, because she is young, a woman, and speaks English, she has been in a few TV shows, and gets interviewed in the paper for her support of woman in the driver/guide workplace.
You will see her in other posts as we move along.
