I was born and grew up in Osaka, later lived in Tokyo, the UK and Singapore, then Kyoto, and now I live in Otsu, Shiga. I have more than 15 years of experience working in a multinational corporation and now I am working as a national licensed guide interpreter, as well as a City of Kyoto visitors host guide.
One of my hobbies is travelling abroad and so far I have visited more than fifty countries.
Kyoto is the cultural center of Japan and has great historical importance. I can offer you unique experiences in this beautiful city, which can include visits to traditional Japanese gardens, ancient temples and shrines designated as world heritage sites, authentic Japanese cultural experiences such as the tea ceremony, sake tasting at local breweries, and exploring food markets. In addition to Kyoto, I can also guide you around Osaka, Nara, Shiga (including Mount Hiei and Lake Biwa tour), Mount Koya etc. With a flexible approach, I can help you personalize your agenda.
I will endeavor to make sure that you will have an enjoyable and memorable trip.
I look forward to guiding you.
