35,000 JPY / day (8hours)|
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!

~ Authentic Kyoto tour + Tea ceremony～Collecting the red stamps of Shrines and Buddhist temples like a Spanish pilgrimage roads
We guided a couple coming from Spain for 2 days.
In addition to sightseeing in Kyoto and Nara,they participated in a full-fledged tea ceremony experience and enjoyed learning more about Japanese culture and history.
ICOM has just been held in Kyoto, and many commemorative exhibitions, including Kiyomizu-dera Temple, have become more enjoyable sightseeing in Kyoto.
～Family trip in summer vacation ～Fresh green and seasonal flowers in Japanese gardens.
I guided 6 guests, a family from Mexico.
It was a hot day and the gentleman requested a break with beer.We enjoyed unique local beer that made using the same yeast that is used to make sake.
Since the mother is a florist,we enjoy the Japanese garden with irises and also dropped by several flower shops with 'hydrangea'.In Gion,we were luck to see a Maiko wearing a Kimono designed with 'hydrangea'.
～ 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.
