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.

“ Wonderful help in experiencing Kyoto! ”

Toshiyo did a wonderful job helping us decide how to best share Kyoto with our family (three boys aged 6-10). Despite some significant rain/cold weather, Toshiyo helped teach us about the great history of Kyoto's temples, shared one of her favorite soba restaurants with us, and adjusted the itinerary as the day progressed to make the best of our time together. She did a wonderful job!

“ Wonderful Experience in Gion ”

Our family had a wonderful time in Gion with the help of Toshiyo. Our pace was just right, especially in that we were with my 75-year old mother, and Toshiyo was flexible enough to adjust the pace. We enjoyed the Kimono experience and the sushi lunch place she had reserved for us. She is able to suggest different activities apart from the usual sight seeing.
