I love living in Kyoto and enjoy sharing local experiences, culture and places "off the beaten track" with visitors.
I've been in 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.
My tours offer unique local experiences, visiting historical areas and providing perspective on why Kyoto is such an attractive city!
My interests vary from classics to hipster, Chashitsu (tea room) to modern coffee shops, and Japanese rice wine to craft beer.
I'm also licensed in Tea ceremony and Japanese flower arrangement. Besides working as a licences guide at KVH, I work in the tea ceremony workshop for foreign visitors.

We spend half day visiting highlights of Kyoto include two different types of budhism temples(Esoteric and Zen budhism) to understand the history and background of budhism in Japan.
Also we enjoy strolling Higashiyama and Gion Maiko District where still has the scenery reminiscent of the old days.We were lukey to be able see Maiko.
