What to Expect

Kyoto is an ancient city, which used to like be the capital of Japan for 1000 years. There are about 1600 temples and 400 shrines and beautiful gardens. It also has a lot of traditional crafts,such as kimono, fans, Japanese artistic sweets. There are a lot of things to do and experience. First of all I will take you to Gion area.I will take you to Yasaka Shrine and Kenninji Temple. Then let's move to the Nishiki market. and have sushi lunch in the market. Gion is the area of entertainment, where there are many bars and taverns. Some important business and political talks have been conducted. You may run across Maiko and Geiko, Japanese entertainers in kimono. If you want to wear Japanese costume in Gion, I can arrange with extra charge. NIshiki market is the kitchen of the Kyoro, where local people buy their everyday food. Fish stores, vegetable stores, pickles stores and so on. A friend of mine owns a Yuba shop in the market. Yuba is vegan, dairy-free ,gluten free,preserve-free, additive-free and protein rich. You can see the yuba making process.

Outstanding, she catered to our needs with two small girls. Thank you so much for showing us around the town, a must if you've never been to Kyoto before. We would have given up fighting the crowd if it were not for her.

“ Kyoto Kyoto ”

Toshiyo is a terrific guide and an intelligent, lovely woman. Touring several places in Kyoto, she was knowledgeable, flexible and resourceful. We loved spending time with her and hearing about her high school year spent in Ohio. What a brace young woman! On our next trip to Kyoto, we definitely hope to see Toshiyo.
