Hello, I am Keiko. I have a national qualification as a English-speaking guide. I was brought up in Kyoto, among a lot of old Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.(ex. Kiyomizu Temple, Toji Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Heian Shrine, Fushimi Inari Shrine and so on) Some of them are now famous worldwide and on the UNESCO World Heritage List. From childhood, a daily sight with a lot of tourists from abroad has been quite normal for me. I had already been thinking,"What can I do for them?" (Of course, I'm thinking of it today, too.) And the answer was,"I would be a guide, to make their time in Kyoto much more wonderful". At last, the time has come! There are uncountable sightseeing spots in Kyoto, so you will need some help, if you want to see and get around the city efficiently. It is much better with a guide who knows Kyoto very well, just like me! And furthermore, it will lead you to a better understanding of Japanese culture. Don't hesitate to ask me, I can arrange the best trip for you, with a lot of choices and something to fit your taste. read more

“ Best day in Kyoto with Keiko (with 10 of us) ”

Keiko planned an incredible day for my group of 10 (my family of 4, my sister's family of 4, and my parents). Due to my mother's limited mobility, we also hired a van (Japan Van) for transportation. Keiko is very knowledgeable in Japanese history and culture, and she speaks excellent English and gave us a good understanding of the background of the sites we visited, which included Arashiyama, Golden temple, Ryoan-ji temple, and a tea ceremony. We even managed to squeeze in an impromptu hike to the monkey mountain at Arashiyama. At every site, Keiko showed us the best photo spot. Thank you Keiko for a most memorable day in Kyoto for my family!

“ Arashiyama bike tour ”

Keiko was a very friendly and helpful guide. We had a great time seeing many temples and shrines in Arashiyama — we covered a lot of ground and the fall colors were incredible. Thanks, Keiko!

Very Good

“ arashiyama cycling tour ”

The cycling tour with Keiko at arashiyama was indeed very nice. She brought us to local temples which are as interesting as the more popular ones. We wouldn't have covered as many places if it weren't for her. I will definitely recommend her tour !

“ An awesome experience. ”

Keiko was very accommodating, always arrived at the meet up locations early and was extremely knowledgeable about each site we visited. She promptly responded to all of my emails prior to our tour and addressed all of my questions. My brothers are planning to visit Kyoto next year. I have advised them to hire Keiko for their trip as well. Thanks Keiko!
