Hallow ! This is Eric Tanaka.
I was born in Kyoto, and I have been living in Kyoto.
I am sure that Kyoto is one of the best city for sightseeing and living.
I wish if I can introduce some nice places for you by walking around city streets.
Also, in suburbs, there are a lot of nice sightseeing places such as Bamboo forest, Monkey park, Fushimi shrine, Zen practice temples and so on.
Let's enjoy Kyoto town and Kyoto food.with me.

“ Excellent Guide ”

Eric has been most helpful in helping my family and me plan our stay in Kyoto. We have not been sure what we want to see/do while in Kyoto and Eric has been very flexible and excellent to communicate with. He has provided us very detailed itinerary ideas along with the associated costs of each. Thank you Eric.
