Hello guys! My name is Shin, and I love to travel.
Because of my homestay experience in Australia, I am addicted to traveling to places I've never been and experience things unique to each site.

Kyoto is one of my favorite cities. If you visit Kyoto, I created this tour to help you enjoy many Kyoto-specific experiences. We can feel the cultural and historic atmosphere through traditional shrines, temples, food, landscape and so on. Kiyomizuzaka has a lot of narrow streets which makes sightseeing difficult, but don't worry!

Your local guide will take you exactly where you should be to experience Kyoto's atmosphere, including traditional Japanese sundries shops, old teashops, sweets shops, and if you are lucky, you could see Maiko and Geisha.

In this walking tour, we will be able to visit the Jishu Shrine which is located inside the Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The Jishu Shrine is dedicated to the deity of love and matchmaking. When we're visiting the Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Jishu Shrine, our guide will teach you and let you experience the Japanese way of worshipping the gods.

Also, we can't miss Kyoto's tea ceremony. Kyoto is where the tea ceremony was born and remains its spiritual heart. We'd be so happy to try the most calming cup of tea with you because Kyoto is the best place to try it.

We hope that everyone will feel so welcome on this tour.

If this is your first visit to Kyoto, we'll show you many interesting sites. For those of you who have previously visited Kyoto, you will learn even more about the city from the locals and visit more places that they recommend.

Throughout the tour, we would love to answer any questions at any time, and we're always thrilled to share our local stories with you.

We are so looking forward to meeting you!
Let's have a great experience and fun together, just like hanging out with friends.
