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.

“ Exciting tour of Nijo Castle ”

My mother and I had a wonderful tour of Kyoto with Toshiyo this month. Toshiyo was very personable, organized and accommodating and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. In particular, we really enjoyed touring Nijo Castle and Toshiyo was able to bring the castle to life with her stories and unique background information. Another highlight from our tour included a visit to Kiyomizu Temple which had incredible views and was a very enjoyable walk. She went out of her way to answer any of our questions and took several photos so that my mother and I would have very special memories from our visit. Toshiyo also took us to a delicious udon and tempura lunch which was a lot of fun. Thank you for a memorable day!

Toshiyo:

Dear Erin Thank you very much for your warm hearted review and having me as a guide. I am very glad you had a beautiful day and enjoyed Kyoto. I hope you could have a chance to come back again in autumn to see more beautiful nature. Thank you. Toshiyo

“ Amazing day with Toshi ”

Toshi took us on a day trip around Kyoto and we were very happy with her. Toshi is extremely knowledgeable about everything we asked. We also liked that she took us to places that were just as beautiful as the main tourist sites but less crowded (as we asked). We couldn’t recommend her enough!

Toshiyo:

Dear Adam Thank you very much for your warm hearted review. I am very glad you enjoyed Kyoto. I hope you could come back in autumn,which shows another natural beauty. Thank you. Toshiyo
