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.
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!

I attended 2 guests on their family trip from England.
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.
I guided two couples from Germany for two days. They were on their voyage and the ship touched at Kobe port,so we meet at the port and start the day traveling together to Kyoto.They are friendly and wonderful guests that know quite a lot about Japanese and Maiko culture. We enjoyed visiting the Highlights of the city,Scenic spots, Authentic Maiko show and enjoy tasting Tradition Japanese cuisine.
I guided a family from Hawaii for two days. They've been to Japan more than 4 times and know a lot about Japan and Kyoto.Since they love Quilt and Sashiko,we visited many venues related with Japanese fabric and textile such as Nishijin-ori textile studio and museum,antique fabric stores and the oldest needle shop in Kyoto.In Ohara,they tried ''Aizome-indigo dying'' and It turned out really well.
