I've been guiding many guests in English and Spanish. I love my city and enjoy sharing local experiences, history, culture and places "off the beaten track" with visitors.
I've been to Mexico and Great Britain when I was a student. Also I traveled more than 40 times(19 countries).
As an avid traveler I love meeting people from around the world.
The characteristic of my guidance is the use of ''Original materials''.
Guiding not only with words but also with Handmade materials including old maps of Kyoto, ancient writings and Japanese woodblock prints help you enjoy Kyoto with its deep history and background.
My interests range from classic to modern, from tea rooms to modern cafes, from Japanese sake to craft beer, and from Zen meditation to outdoor activities such as hiking on Mt. Kurama.
I'm also licensed in Tea ceremony and Japanese flower arrangement. Besides working as a licenced guide, I work in the tea ceremony workshop for foreign visitors.
I can give you the best itinerary according to your schedule, budget and requests.
Please feel free to ask me.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you around!

～ A group from Mexico including a family with little Samurai boy ～
I guided a group from Mexico including a family with a boy. He bought a Japanese Samurai sword filled with colorful sweets inside that he enjoyed the Kyoto tour playing with.
It was the first time for all the member of the group to visit Japan.So we enjoyed learning not only the culture,history and local life of Kyoto but also of whole Japan.
