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

“ Awesome Time in Osaka! ”

We had a wonderful time in Osaka. Kenji was very friendly, personable, accommodating, and patient with us. We had made some last minute changes to the itinerary and Kenji was very flexible and adaptive to switching things around. He spoke English very well and is very knowledgeable about the history and culture. We did not feel rushed and most importantly my kids loved him. He also helped us pick out some great spots for lunch and dinner - as we wanted to try restaurants and cuisine that more of the locals would do. We would highly recommend anyone looking to use Kenji as a tour guide in Japan! When we are back in Japan to visit again we would definitely use Kenji as a tour guide again! Thank you Kenji for showing us Osaka!! All the best, Jimmy and Peggy
