the tour was amazing and food was great and every thing served was halal and guide was making sure of that. Also the guide English was pretty good and could understand him easily and he was 100 friendly and enjoyed talking with him our whole tour. the city was very quite and sceneries was breath taking. the temples looked very beautiful and I wont forget walking though the bamboo forest for sure.
after the main parts of the tour we went shopping and the tour guide was so kind to help me pick gifts for the family and we stopped at each place I wanted without any complaints about time or any thing.
luckily we even got to meet a local singing contest in one of the temples and even I cant understand a word of Japanese I enjoyed way too much that I should lol.
10/10 would recommend this tour to friends and even non Muslim tourists.
