Hello. I was born in and grew up in Kyoto. I've lived in Fushimi area very close to Fushimi Inari shrine, one of the most famous sightseeing spots in Kyoto.
I used to work at a famous old hotel as a concierge and also to help guests with their requests during their staying.
Now, I would like to make good use of the experience and guide you from famous historical shrines and temples in Kyoto to lots of places known by local residences, such as local sake breweries, local shopping arcade and so on.
When you are interested in me, please feel free to contact me with your lots of requests. I'm always happy to answer you.
I guided five foreigners from America, India, France and Singapore. It was the first time to visit Kyoto and they are interested in Japanese Food. I guided them to Nishiki Market first.
They had many local authentic food there and bought some souvenirs. We saw many maikos in Ponto area and they were so excited. It was a great walking tour.
I guided a family from Israel. I contacted with them by e-mail and got their interests and requests. I took them Nijo-Castle, The Golden Pavillion, Ryoanji Temple and Bamboo forest in Arashiyama for 7 hours by public transportation as their request. One of them was a vegan but the others wanted meal like, fish and beef, so I made a reservation first and we had lunch smoothly. We enjoyed a lot.
I guided couples from Switzerland for 4 hours private tour. First they visited Tokyo, so I explained the difference between Tokyo and Kyoto. They were so curious that they asked many things. It was so fun. We visited Sanjusangendo-Temple and Fushimiinari Shrine.
At lunch they had an experience to have Cha-soba, back wheat noodle and Inari-sushi.
They enjoyed a lot!
