Hi! My name is Kiriko, you can call me Kitty :)

I graduated from an university in Thailand, and I was majoring in Tourism Management.
Throughout my life abroad, I could see a lot of interesting, attractive and beautiful sides of Japan which I did not even realize when I was there, and that’s how I decided to be a tour guide because I want to introduce my beautiful country to more people around the world!

I, as a traveler myself, would like to try to give the best times to you offering not only basic information but also travel tips and interesting facts that you may actually need.

“ A truly excellent experience ”

We had a fantastic time with Kiriko on our tour in Arashiyama. The autumn colours were beautiful and when we finished a bit early, Kiriko took the initiative and showed us a few other things in the area which were great. It was a memorable tour!


Thank you for the review! I’m so grateful that you have chosen me as your tour guide. Really looking forward to the future tours!!

“ 1 day tour in Kyoto ”

Kiriko was an amazing tour guide. She was so patient with the whole group (6 girls). She suggested all the places we should go see and she got us to each location and we really enjoyed all the sites we visited. She was so knowledgeable and spoke very good english. Totally made our experience very memorable. I would highly recommend her!!!!


Thank you for taking your time to write me a review! It was so nice to meet all of you and I’m glad to hear that you all enjoyed the tour. Please contact me if you come to Kansai with your family or friends again and need a guide :) I’m looking forward to seeing you again!
