Overview

There are two distinct Japans coexisting in one fascinating country. One is the fast paced, packed train, high tech modern Japan. The other is ancient Japan, full of tradition, a strong sense of community and a deep connection with the land and the changing seasons. Miyama is a region 50 kilometres to the north of Kyoto city surrounded by mountains(About Miyama by Max Whittle)

What to Expect

I’m a licensed English tour guide and a professional driver. I will guide you around Miyama Old Village by car. You can make a tour to Miyama at your own pace in air-conditioned comfort. It takes about 80 minutes by car if you go there directly. I will stop by any places that you would like to visit. My car is a people carrier Honda Odyssey which can carry 6 passengers maximum. No smoking car. I receive only English guiding fee. No extra charge for carfare. As I'm not a taxi driver, I cannot receive any money for carfare. I’m available from 8:00 to 22:00. Please let me know places which you want to visit.

Miyama is a region 50 kilometres to the north of Kyoto city surrounded by mountains. Thanks to this geographic isolation the old Japan has been kept alive here and is flourishing in a country now trying to reconnect with its roots.

“ Kyoto by Day ”

Thanks to Mitsuyuki for making our trip to Kyoto memorable and easy breezy! It was raining hard and I couldn’t imagine we had to ride the subway and walk to different tourist destinations if we didn’t book him. Thanks Mitsuyuki, we had a great time! We’ll be back for more soon! We’re sorry if we got tired at the end. 😁👍🏻 🇯🇵

“ Miyami and Ayakashi Bamboo Forest ”

A great day with Mitsuyuki, he took us to the lovely old village of Miyama which we enjoyed, introduced us to his favorite soba restaurant there, accommodated our wishes to stop at a local grocery market, and then finished our day with a visit to the Ayakashi Bamboo Forest. He was interesting, informative and entertaining - would definitely recommend you use him for a tour.

“ Awesome Time ”

Both of our days with Mitsuyuki were amazing. He took us to so many places across Kyoto and Nara. We were particularly astounded by his extensive knowledge of Japanese history and the different landmarks we passed. We are very thankful to have spent these days with him touring Japan.
