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!

~ 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!

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 budismo) to understand the history and background of budhism in Japan.
