Had to leave early due to poor connection

Noriko's tour of the Wisteria and Shinto Temple was absolutely beautiful. She was very responsive when it came to sound issues with her mic and answered all our questions. She even came with some items to show us the uses of plums in her area AND a calligraphy brush to show us how one disposes of it to help wish for improved handwriting. This was my first tour with Noriko and I really enjoyed myself. I look forward to touring with her again.
