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.

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.

“ a must in kyoto ”

it is the best decision I have made so far to hire a local guide in Kyoto. We have seen so much in 6 hours with Toshiyo. The private tour is informative and Toshiyo is very patient and answered all our questions. It is a must if you are in Kyoto for a limited time. We went to places via bus and I cannot imagine doing this effectively by ourselves. Thank you Toshiyo!

Toshiyo:

Dear Rose and your beautiful family Thank you very much for warm hearted review. You have very beautiful children and your small son was always smiling. I was much impressed with his smile. I appreciate you having me a guide. Please come back again in autumn. Best regards. Toshiyo

“ Amazing going through Kyoto heritage with Toshiyo san ”

Toshiyo san introduced us to Kyoto which used to be the capital of Japan in the Edo period. We walked through scenic Bamboo trails with her in Arshiyama and she showed us around the buzzing streets around downtown as well. We discussed the convenience and comfort of Bullet trains sweeping the Travel and Transportation industry off late and observe the path taken by Rivers Kamogawa and Katsura river that was the Hozu river before entering the Arashiyama ravine, through Kyoto. Toshiyo san told us that Yama means mountain in Japanese and Arashiyama means Storm Mountain. Together we walked through shops selling Kimonos, souvenirs reflecting Japanese scenery, works of art and various products made from Bamboo. Thank you Toshiyo san for such an enthralling experience..

Toshiyo:

Dear Chetan Thank you very much for warm hearted review. You have a beautiful family and I am very glad to know you enjoyed Kyoto. Please come back again to see more sights. I appreciate you had me as a guide. Thank you very much. Toshiyo

“ Wonderful guide for Kyoto ”

Toshiyo took excellent care of us for 2 days sightseeing around Kyoto. She is very knowledgeable of the history, offering information about sights as we move about the city. She took us to wonderful lunch places. Toshiyo was so patient, as our teenage daughter stepped in to many store to shop along the way. I would highly recommend Toshiyo for your Kyoto tour guide.
