@HiroyukiTakisawa Which 360° camera you've used to click photospheres, Ricoh Theta S or Ricoh Theta V?
I wrote a recap of the Summit 2017 on my website. I'll copy abstract here.
And full post is here. tantanlife: Local Guides Summit 2017 report (Only Japanese)
Pre Summit activities
I arrived in San Francisco on October 7th because I had to recover from my jet lag and there was a wonderful plan.
Yes, it was a Pre Summit activity with Local Guides at Philz Coffee!
8th, of course I was doing Local Guides in SF. I went to Coffee shops, Ramen shop and some interesting spots.
9th, I went to Google for attend Google’s usability studies.
And 10th, finally started the Local Guides Summit 2017!
It was amazing experiences!!
Their speech was full of surprises and ideas. And discussions were very exciting!
We enjoyed them and learned many things from each other.
Of course parties were fantastic too! We made mannnnnnnny friends:-)
For this Summit, I had some goals.
- Meet many Local Guides friends.
- Discuss how we gather a lot of Local Guides in countryside.
- Drink coffee with them in SF.
Thanks to many new friends, I have definitely achieve these goals!
I think that Local Guides has big possibility and versatility because we can use it to support people who are in trouble, and improve countryside's problems.
I hope a lot of people attend to Local Guides also in Japan.
Awesome Local Guides people in all of the world, see you all!

@AnnaBcn, I am happy that you enjoyed Philz's Mint Mojito and would order it again. Their baristas are the best!
Their Mochas are very good. Their most popular coffee bean is Tesora, medium roast goodness in a cup.
In fact @KarenVChin, I was surprised. I actually liked the mint mojito coffee, although it was too sweet for me (but at Philz that's not a problem so you can ask them to adjust the sweetness). I wouldn't consider it a coffee in the absolute sense of the term, but a nice fresh drink for the summer.
I enjoyed the Mocha Tesora (I'm a huge fan of cocoa and dark chocolate) :D

There are a few local popular Spainish restaurants in SF that we should try next time. I would love to get your opinion to see if any of them are authentic as I was taking @ermest around the Old Italian area called North Beach for his opinion.
