This was an amazing experience. We had some issues with Google maps and ended up being a few minutes late, but they waited for us... in the rain, no less! Our guide took us across the Kamo River, down Pontocho Alley, and all through the Nishiki Market. We also learned about the religious history of Japan and had the opportunity to pray for our fortunes at the Nishiki-Tenmangu Shrine. You can snack and eat all throughout the Market and even though I came hungry, I was full by the halfway point! There are lots of tasty samples, but be wise. Also, there's several opportunities to shop, but I would recommend getting an idea of what you want from each place and then going back after the tour. This way you get the most of your time with your guide!
