Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Kyoto.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Nowadays, you see Kyoto is so packed with tourists and visitors from all over the world and you may be so tired of watching way too many people in a closed area of temples and shrines. What I suggest you to do is to visit less famous spots and enjoy tranquility and the atmosphere of traditional Kyoto with rich historical background and long cherished cultures. You will need two to three days at least to really understand the old capital and I will give you the best itinerary to maximize your stay. Of course, you may want to visit the super famous spots like Kinkakuji (Golden temple) or Fushimi-Inari Shrine. I can combine these spots with truly valuable places to give you maximum impression of Kyoto within your limited time of stay. I would recommend you to include in your itinerary small temples of Daitoku-ji, Shugakuin Palace and its vicinity, Tiny Temples in Ohara and you may want to expand your schedule into the suburbs of Kyoto like Uji and Yawata. I am confident in giving you the best bespoke itineraries with least time loss combining rides using railroads, city bus and subways. You will also enjoy the small eateries where people in Kyoto may use rather than expensive restaurants for foreign visitors.

 

My personal information

 

  Using my long business career in Japanese, American and British Corporations including nearly10 years of living overseas (U.S. and Asia), I thought it good idea to start tourist guide using my long experience of guiding my business partners and clients visiting Japan for sightseeing trip between tough business meetings. Born and raised in Kyoto, I passed the official test for Kyoto for the knowledge of its 1200 years history, geography, traditions and cultures in addition to official English tour guide license. As for English, I also passed 1st grade English proficiency test many years ago. My hobby is travelling on trains and visit hot springs in the country. I can write, read and speak some Russian and is a member of a Country music band.
