Hi I'm Kenji
I have a government license of tour guide interpreter in English.
I was born and raised in Kyoto, an old capital of Japan over one thousand years
So I'm very familiar with many sightseeing spots and attractions of the city
Kyoto is a fascinating and picturesque city drawing lots of foreign tourists every year
I can show you around not only popular historical sites and relics
but also its various attractions such us Zen silent meditation, traditional sweets cooking,
kimono-clad walking and so on.
I can also provide tailored tours fitting to your liking.
I like a famous Zen phrase "Ichigo Ichie" meaning "Treasure every encounter
for it will never recur"
So I always try to enjoy guiding every tourist with my best hospitality.
Zen concepts have greatly influenced many aspects of Japanese culture
I will explain some of them and allow you to explore Zen world through some of my tours
Please contact me any time.
I'm looking forward to seeing you and spending wonderful time with you.
See you soon ! read more

“ Highly recommended ”

There were 11 of us travelling in Osaka and Kenji made sure no one were left behind. He is very nice, polite, friendly but not too chatty and we were very happy with him.

“ Kenji in Kyoto ”

We had a very nice time with Kenji. He guided our group of 9 with ease and care. Not having a flag, but we were able to keep up. Could not have done it on our own with the maze of trains and buses. Thank you Kenji!

“ Kenji is a pleasant guide! ”

Kenji is well organized and helped us plan the sites to visit before hand. He also suggested several (lunch)restaurants before hand for us to select from. He was flexible and accommodating, and included an extra site that we were interested in visiting. He is pleasant company. We would never have seen as much of the city without him.

“ Great day in Kyoto ”

Kanji is the perfect tour guide. He promptly met us at the ship and proceeded to guide us through the trains to Kyoto. He had the days activities well planned and made sure that we flowed the plan and got us back to the ship on time. I would highly recommend Kenji.
