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!
