★Kyoto City Official Tour Guide - CIty of Kyoto Visitors Host★
Local insight by an insider in the Ancient capital Kyoto

Using a City of Kyoto Visitors Host as a guide will redefine your whole travel experience.
Equipped with an extensive knowledge of the city and its unique arts and culture acquired through participating in the Visitor's Host course, I am passionate to share my knowledge of Kyoto with you. Let me help make your trip be only the beginning of a lifelong love of the magical city of Kyoto.

Please feel free to contact me with your trip ideas. I'm happy to work with you to create your unique travel experience in Kyoto. If you have enough time or have visited the city before, I can help you find the quirky, interesting local places that you would perhaps otherwise not get to see or experiences. If you are lucky enough to time your trip for cherry blossoms/autumn colours or seasonal events, I can take you to the best possible places to see and experience the most you can.

Here's a review I have received in the past.
An amazing & informative tour! Takaaki took us on a walk through Gion where we came across many shrines and interesting areas which you wouldn't get the chance to see if you were simply riding in a taxi or walking along the main streets. We even spotted a few maiko along the way. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Kyoto who wants to learn about the history of geiko and the city of Kyoto while hopefully seeing some beautiful geiko and maiko along the backstreets. Thank you Takaaki!
