Would you like to write Japanese characters and alphabet with brush and Indian ink? That's Japanese calligraphy, the traditional art. Works of calligraphy are admired for the accurate composition of their characters but also for the way the brush is handled in their creation, the shading of the ink, and the balanced placement of the character on the paper. I will get ready for the inkstone, brush paper. Just bring yourself and enjoy calligraphy.
If you want to experience tea ceremony, you can. A friend of mine is a teacher of tea ceremony. Tea ceremony has a long history and has deep roots in Kyoto. There are complex steps to taste tea. Please follow the manners. Seasonal Japanese sweets are offered before drinking tea. It brings you out the better flavor of tea.Both experiences are held in a private house. You can relax and learn the Japanese culture better.

Toshiyo did a wonderful job helping us decide how to best share Kyoto with our family (three boys aged 6-10). Despite some significant rain/cold weather, Toshiyo helped teach us about the great history of Kyoto's temples, shared one of her favorite soba restaurants with us, and adjusted the itinerary as the day progressed to make the best of our time together. She did a wonderful job!
We had a lovely time with Toshiyo. Toshiyo planned our itinerary based on what was the farthest away from our hotel and what would be the hardest to get to as tourists. We were able to see 3 sights and have lunch in a 5 hour day. Toshiyo is eru knowledgeable about the history of Japan and her English is very good. If you book with her make sure to request the Soba restaurant by the river!
Had a very enjoyable day with Toshiyo on a rainy Kyoto day. Only the weather stopped us seeing more. if you are looking for a guide in Kyoto i recommend Toshiyo.
Toshiyo did a great job of showing us Kyoto. We covered the major sights all over the city, enjoyed a traditional soba noodle meal at one of her favorite spots, and learned to use the public transportation system. She enabled us to easily traverse the city for the rest of our stay, made recommendations for sights and places we would most enjoy, and helped us to better understand Japan and its wonderful peoples. We would definitely use her again.
I booked the guide for a friend of mine and his family. They told me she was a wonderful guide.
