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!

I guided a family from Mexico.Since the family travel a lot and they experienced the traditional costume in each countries, they had idea of wearing Kimono in Kyoto.Since they had chosen the itinerary that we visit many places,they prefer spending most of the day with casual clothes and they got fitted in Kimono only in the evening and enjoyed the quaint streets of Higashiyama area with a Kimono.
