Unforgettable experience!

Overall, a wonderful experience! Studio is located next to the Arashiyama train station; however, there are 3 different train stations. I was not aware of that when I got off the train at Saga-Arashiyama. Despite getting a little lost and with very limited Japanese, I was able to figure out where to go. It was a little hard to find; it would have been helpful to know that the entrance is actually located down one level from ground floor. Staff knew very limited English, but thanks to Google translator, we made it through A-okay! I ordered the package that was supposed to include a one-hour GUIDED walk; however, there was no such guide. Traveling solo, they wanted me to walk the streets on my own! I did not want to and so opted to decline. Because I already paid for the package, the staff instead gave me a photo CD of all of the shots taken during the professional photo session. That was very unexpected yet highly sweet of them to do! A definite "to do" if looking for a fun time!
