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 a French couple for two days. They had been longing to visit Kyoto. I decided to plan according to their preferences. They especially had an interest in Japanese gardens. We visited a few including my own special favorites. They were fascinated with stone lantern and moss. They appreciated tea ceremony, Japanese desserts, authentic Japanese cuisine. They promised to come back to Kyoto!
I guided an American family for half day. It was the perfect timing for cherry blossoms viewing. They were fascinated by the spectacular panorama of cherry blossoms. They walked around the bamboo grove and ate cooked bamboo shoots for the first time. At the monkey park, their child was crazy about climbing up the mountain and feeding the lovely monkeys. They had a happy family trip in Arashiyama!
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.
