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 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.
The characteristic of my guiding is use of ''Original materials''.
Guiding not only with words but also with Handmade materials including old maps of Kyoto, ancient writings and Japanese wood rock print help you enjoy Kyoto with its deep history and background.
My interests vary from classics to hipster, Chashitsu (tea house) to modern coffee shops, Japanese rice wine to craft beer and Zen meditation to outdoor such as Mt. Kurama hike.
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.
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 Trip to Kyoto: Beauty and Nature～The end of the day is "Teppan-yaki" and "watching Sumo wrestling"
I attended a family from Spain with hired car.Since they love Japanese nature and beauty,such as gardens,Buddha statues,and architecture,We enjoyed Arashiyama area with Rickshaw ride,Bamboo forest and Monkey park.We visited 1,001 statues of Buddha,Gardens of Mimori Shigemori, and the oldest temple gate in Kyoto.We had a lunch a in an local restaurant and They enjoy Teppan-yaki watching Sumo on TV.
～ 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.
～ Tea ceremony experience ～
I attended five Spanish couples in the tea ceremony workshop.
They enjoyed learning the history and the background of the ceremony.
I think the tea ceremony is one of the best way to feel the Japanese cultures and hospitality.
Also visiting the workshops of traditional crafts include tea utensils or of making Japanese confectionery are available in my tours. Please feel free to ask me.
