Hi, I am a certified Kyoto city tour guide as well as a national licensed guide.
I am a Kyoto native and have enjoyed seeing the seasonal sceneries and events of my home town since childhood. I would be so happy to show you around my favorite city Kyoto.
I have acquired a diverse knowledge including expertise such as in cultural properties and traditional industries through specially designed courses and guide experiences in the Kyoto State Guest House.
Would you like to visit historical temples and shrines, try authentic Japanese cuisine, or enjoy Japanese traditional hands on experiences? I can introduce you to modern culture in our daily life including my own special favorites, too.
Kyoto has many attractive places all year around.
I would be so glad to make a special tour plan based on your interests. You will have unique experiences and discover the real Kyoto.
I’m here to make your trip special!
Let’s go behind the scenes and have fun together!
I guided an American couple for a half day. They said they felt relieved to see traditional Kyoto city after their trip to Tokyo. In Sanjyusangen-do, they were impressed by the 1001 Buddhist statues. In Kenninji temple, the dragon painting on the ceiling and the Zen garden were appealing for them. They will come back to Kyoto in April, in the breathtakingly beautiful cherry blossom season!
I guided a five person TV crew from Brazil for three days. They experienced Kawadoko style dinner which is outside on a raised stage with a Maiko, trainee Geisha. We went to the world famous bamboo grove, temples, shrine and castle. They were impressed to see various sides of Kyoto such as Zen garden and popular fire ramen. They had a great time while talking to school kids from Tokyo.
I guided a Swiss couple for two days. They visited Kinkaku-ji temple and private garden as if “a paradise of cherry flowers”. They had vegetable and seafood Tempura as a seasonal. They changed into Japanese traditional costume, Kimono and enjoyed a rickshaw ride through the bamboo grove. They took a lot of memorable pictures. They also appreciated Japanese tea ceremony and Maiko performance.
