I am a Kyoto local and came from Miyama-cho, famous for thached houses. I love to visit temples,shrines, and enjoy watching the performing arts hosted in Kyoto during each and every season. Although a high school by trade, I have spent a couple of years providing guided tours of Kyoto to small groups.
Depending on your preferences, I provide many diffrerent types of tours such as cycling tours, hiking tours, tours of Nishiki food market, and as well as sightseeing spots. Additionally, you might also be interested in walking Gion districts, attending tradittional handicrafts workshops or preparing sushi, and so on.
I invite you to discover the treasure of Kyoto, and look forward to being your guide!

I guided a family of four from Australia. (including junior high school kids). Bike ride from Nijo castle to the antique shops of Teramachi Street, Gion Shirakawa district, Ninja restaurant and shrines for the worship of New Year. They also enjoyed local food at the supermarket. Next year I'll guide their mother and father to Kyoto, I promise..
I guided an Israel family for two days. They were very impressed by the tea ceremony, they learned also make tea by tthemselves for the firstt time. In Tofuki-ji temple, they did Zazen for thiry minutes. In Arashiyama, we went cycling to Giou-ji, a famous moss garden, and Otagi-nembutu-ji, surrounded by lovely stone statues. They were also fascinated with the local sushi there!
