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!

～ 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.
~ The Wedding in Kyoto ~ The traditional ceremony and the party with Maiko and Geiko
I worked for a couple from the USA for a few months in all the preparation for their wedding, not only as an interpreter, but also organizing reservations, translation of emails and documents to design the plan. A few months later, I was also hired as an interpreter for the wedding day .
It was a beautiful wedding with his family and many friends who came from various parts of the world!
Enjoy the Gion Festival and all the major spots in Kyoto! A full-day tour of Kyoto
(July 17,2019) I guided a family from Germany. At their request, I arranged an itinerary that covered the highlights of the festival, but also the main sites of Kyoto: Nijo Castle, Gion, Kenninji Temple, Yasaka Pagoda, etc. The weather was good and we were able to enjoy each site to the fullest.
