Comments:
I had a very happy tour and have got to know several new friends. Thanks very much.
Thanks for organizing the tour. It was very interesting.
I think it will be even better if more time is specially arranged for communicating between each other (both attendees and local guides)
As far as comments about this tour, I don’t see anything that could be improved. It was an organized tour, smooth and fulfilling. I would like to participate in similar events in the future.
We saw the gods and the beautiful temple buildings, learned about Japanese traditional culture, made new friends, and had lunch together after the tour. I thought it was an interesting experience.
I gained a deeper understanding of local culture and beliefs while learning the guide’s explanations and historical background.
