Kyoto_Kyoto Imperial Palace and Seimei Shrine

I am an English guide in charge of
Kyoto Imperial Palace and Seimei Shrine.


Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.


Kyoto Imperial Palace Seimei Shrine From 794 until 1869 emperors and families lived here and conducted official services and ceremonies here at Kyoto Imperial Palace.
110000square meters in dimention, 250meters from east to west 450meters from south to north. There are traditional buildings of the Heian period, Shishinden palace, Seiryoden palace, Kogosho palace etc. They are magnificent buildings and you can enjoy the elegance and gorgiousness of the Heian period. After the visit to the Imperial palace, the next stop is a shrine called ‘Seimei Shrine’. During the Heian period, the noble men were afraid of the natural disasters and other ominous happenings. They thought all these were caused by the irregular movements of the stars. The astronomical observation was very important. One of the most famous astronomers was Abe Seimei. This shrine enshrines Abe Seimei. Worshipping at this shrine will ward off ill fortunes.

My personal information


  I’ve been working as an English teacher all my life. After passing 60, I challenged to become a certified guide. In my free time I enjoy traveling not only around Japan but also around the world always with the help of guides. Just a small stone shines with the explanation given by guides. They really help travelers understand a lot about the place and culture. I really wish to entertain tourists with easy to understand explanations and make their trips most memorable and pleasant just like the guides I have met and have been helped by.
