Hello, I'm Keiko. I have two national qualifications as a tour guide, one is English, and the other is German. 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'll need some help, if you want to see and go around the city efficiently. It's much better with a guide who knows Kyoto very well, just like me! And furthermore, it'll 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.

Hallo, ich heiße Keiko. Ich habe zwei nationale Qualifikationen als Reiseleiterin, eine ist Englisch, und die andere ist Deutsch. (Ich habe das Studium von Germanistik abgeschlossen.) Ich bin in Kyoto, unter vielen alten buddhistischen Tempeln und Shinto-Schreinen aufgewachsen. (z.B. Kiyomizu Tempel, Toji Tempel, Yasaka Schrein Heian Schrein, Fushimi Inari Schrein usw.) Einige von ihnen sind heute weltweit bekannt, und auf der Liste vom UNESCO Welterbe. Von Kindheit an ist mir ein täglicher Anblick mit vielen ausländischen Touristen ganz normal. Ich hatte schon gedacht,"was kann ich für sie tun?" (Natürlich denke ich daran heute auch.) Und die Antwort war,"ich werde Reiseleiterin, um ihre Zeit in Kyoto viel wunderbarer zu machen". Endlich kommt die Zeit! Es gibt unzählbare Sehenswürdigkeiten in Kyoto, deshalb werden Sie einige Hilfe brauchen, wenn Sie gut in der Stadt herumlaufen möchten. Es ist viel besser mit einer Reiseleiterin, die so gut Kyoto kennt, gerade wie ich! Außerdem wird es Sie zu einem besseren Verständnis von der japanischen Kultur führen. Bitte fragen Sie mich, ohne zu zögern! Mit vielen Wahlen und je nach Geschmack kann ich für Sie die beste Reise arrangieren.

What is a Licensed Guide?

Licensed guides are professionals approved by the Japan Tourism Agency. Licensed guides have passed tough examinations and are highly knowledgeable about the history and places that feature in their tours. In Japan, unlicensed guides are operating illegally, and are therefore considered to be of lesser quality to licensed guides, who carry official registration cards which represent professionalism and legalit
