Hi! My name is Kiriko, you can call me Kitty :)
I graduated from an university in Thailand, and I was majoring in Tourism Management.
Throughout my life abroad, I could see a lot of interesting, attractive and beautiful sides of Japan which I did not even realize when I was there, and that’s how I decided to be a tour guide because I would love to introduce my beautiful country to more people around the world!
As a traveler myself, I will try to give the best times to you offering not only basic information but also travel tips and interesting facts that you may actually need.
Please feel free to contact me if you’re looking for a memorable experience in Japan!
I have been an Interpretive Tour Guide for over 20 years. I have lived in Japan for nearly that amount of time broken up by a 12 years stint in Hawaii for 12 years. Still came over every month bringing tours though. I provide private, interpretive guiding services for English-speaking visitors in the Kansai region of Japan. I am a Shrine and Temple professional.
As an ex-Executive Assistant Food and Beverage Manager/Director, I know food and I know Japanese Sake and I want to show you how fun and interesting Japanese food and sake can be! My minimum is eight hours and I do not do half day tours. I promise your time with me in-depth and informative, but we will make some amazing memories while we are at it.
I also do KYOTO, NARA, ISE, as well as OSAKA.
*Please note that we use public transportation for regular tours. If you need a private transportation, please contact me.

I used to be a business planner in a manufacturing company. After working in the corporate world for 6 years, I made a decision to quit the company because I found a perfect job for myself: tour guide. I love my city Kyoto, and my mission now is share this very unique city with people from all over the world.
I'd love to guide you to this city of 1200 years of history, share what I know about the modern and tradition, connect you to Japanese history and culture, take you to beautiful scenic locations, and support you making your trip UNFORGETABLE!!
I conduct over 100 private tours a year, and proud to say about 35% of my guests are either returning or by referral as of today (Jul. 2019).

See you soon.

Hi, I'm Mari, a government certified English Tour Guide.
I attended high school in Georgia, USA, then studied Biology at State University of New York.
My lifelong passion has always been traveling and meeting people; it would be my sincere pleasure to show you JAPAN!
If you wish, as we travel, I can provide mini cultural lectures introducing you to such things as Origami (Japanese art of paper folding), and the writing of Kanji - those complex Chinese characters you see in our Japanese sentences.
