Hi there! I'm Ryo and here as your private tour guide=)
I've been working as tour guide in Kyoto over two years now. Mainly I do cycling tour with a group, but every time I felt like "I could talk a bit more if It's private tour". Also since I've been living in Kyoto for 22 years I have lots of place that I can take you to hidden beautiful place. Now is the time to have your own tour guided to discover Kyoto!!
I'm very flexible about schedule and tour, I can make your own tour if you want:)

ex) place that you want to go:Fushimi Inari shrine, Kinkakuji,Nanzenji temple...etc
How long you want to do a tour:start from 9am, 4h
How many people: 3,4 people
your preference:We want to go to cafe, dinner place...
so far, I did night tour(Fuhimi Inari shrin, Gion district, lights up temple and enjoying japanese meal!), also if you have little kids I can make a tour which is including the Zoo!!:)
there are more different kind of tour, such a hiking, renting a kimono...etc
So Let's enjoy Kyoto with me!
