Re: Osaka & Kyoto recommendations
Hi and thanks for the reply.
I'll be in Kyoto from the 31st of March to the 3rd or 4th of April. I've been to Kyoto once but my friend has never been. We will hit the major tourist spots and spend some time at Hiei-yama.
I did see the bamboo forest in Saga.
I might be able to hit Okamoto Sensei's morning class at the Kyoto Budo Center or another class at Tambabashi Fushimi Seishonen Katsudo Center (if it can be found).
One of my good friends back in the USA is from Kobe. I'm guessing you already know your way around but if you need any info, I'm happy to ask.
Thanks again for the info!
