Wow. I didn't know Kibune is so charming. I've been to Kyoto twice and never visited Kibune because it's not so popular with tourists. If not because of this tour, I would have missed out this place! The guide was fluent in English and tried his best to make us all comfortable. We viewed the beautiful maple leaves from the train. Although we took a public train with other travellers, the hospitality begins when we reached the station. A friendly driver was already waiting for us at the station. And when we reached the restaurant, the staffs were ready to attend to us. The dinner was sumptuous, most of us couldn't finish all the food.
