About

Hello, I am Keiko. I have a national qualification as a English-speaking guide. I was brought up in Kyoto, among a lot of old Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.(ex. Kiyomizu Temple, Toji Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Heian Shrine, Fushimi Inari Shrine and so on) Some of them are now famous worldwide and on the UNESCO World Heritage List. From childhood, a daily sight with a lot of tourists from abroad has been quite normal for me. I had already been thinking,"What can I do for them?" (Of course, I'm thinking of it today, too.) And the answer was,"I would be a guide, to make their time in Kyoto much more wonderful". At last, the time has come! There are uncountable sightseeing spots in Kyoto, so you will need some help, if you want to see and get around the city efficiently. It is much better with a guide who knows Kyoto very well, just like me! And furthermore, it will lead you to a better understanding of Japanese culture. Don't hesitate to ask me, I can arrange the best trip for you, with a lot of choices and something to fit your taste.

Very Good

“ arashiyama cycling tour ”

The cycling tour with Keiko at arashiyama was indeed very nice. She brought us to local temples which are as interesting as the more popular ones. We wouldn't have covered as many places if it weren't for her. I will definitely recommend her tour !

“ An awesome experience. ”

Keiko was very accommodating, always arrived at the meet up locations early and was extremely knowledgeable about each site we visited. She promptly responded to all of my emails prior to our tour and addressed all of my questions. My brothers are planning to visit Kyoto next year. I have advised them to hire Keiko for their trip as well. Thanks Keiko!

“ Wonderfull day in Kyoto ”

Keiko did an excellent job and she is very professional. Her day plan worked perfect and we had enough time to see the pre-planned attractions and didn't loose time by transport. Her explanations are very good and all questions are answered and we learned more about Japan and the culture as we thought. always again........... thanks. Petra and Andreas

“ Lovely ride in Western Kyoto ”

Keiko was a terrific guide. We explored Western Kyoto shrines and the bamboo forest by bicycle. She shared her knowledge of the history of the area. She was very flexible about adjusting the timing to suit our needs and adding another person on short notice. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience with her as our guide.
