Perfect place to take beautiful picture with my authentic portrait lens equipped camera.

Kyoto Imperial Palace is located in the heart of Kyoto city where Japanese Emperors lived for about 500 years.

It is the best place to start the sightseeing of the ancient capital city.

I can also take beautiful picture with maple and other trees

Geisha

Gion is one of the five flower districts in Kyoto. It is the place where you can feel a scene out of old Japan.

Great half-day tour in Kyoto

Koichi is punctual and well-attentioned. He carefully creates an itinerary based on clients needs taking into consideration both interests, time spent in transportation and budget. The excursion was pleasant and interesting

Excellent one-day tour in Kyoto

Koichi was the guide for my 12 year old son and I for one day in Kyoto (September 2019). Koichi met us at the hotel on time and our day was planned nicely by Koichi to correspond to the specific time we had alloted (not a lot of "down time" and we also were by no means "rushed"). It was a warm day and Koichi worked hard throughout the day to make our day informative, as relaxed as it could be with the temparature, and fun. Koichi is extremely knowledgeable about the history and background of Japan religions, including Buddhism and Shinto and thus was able to articulate some of the key differences in the temples/shrines we visited and how it correlates to history. His knowledge and experience was also helpful in pointing out some of the specific architectual nuances and religious symbols embedded in the architecture. Other: a) Koichi's English was very good and it was easy to communicate with him. He chose a lovely traditional Japanese restaurant for lunch which my son enjoyed. b) Koichi was able to answer all of my questions (and my son's!) and he related well to my son also. c) His pictures are nice and it adds a very nice touch to the tour and a differentiator! If I was to come back to Kyoto again and wanted to experience another tour (different places) I would look to use Koichi again. I would recommend him

Relaxed and exciting tour through Kyoto.

Choosing Koichi as guide is definitely a choice I do not regret. He was a very professional guide, delivering all kinds of interesting facts about the visited places and knew good viewing places to experience the shrines and temples in Kyoto in all their glory. And outside of the visits, like during travel or lunch, Koichi is also very easy to talk with. I enjoyed talking to him about various subjects. Having a guide you can feel comfortable while talking with him, made the whole trip very relaxing and pleasent. He is also a great photographer. By taking beautiful pictures, you will always have great memories of that day and all those beautiful shrines and temples. So in short, with Koichi you get a professional, yet very relaxing guide, that really enjoys showing you a part of Kyoto and makes sure, you will remember these memories.

This tour is the one and only for you. Kyoto was an ancient capital of Japan for over 1200 years. Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it offers too much to see in one visit. Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern. The phenomenal concentration of history and legend coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life. Please tell me your interest, and I will make an itinerary exclusively for you!

Visiting the Sites of Hidden Legend and Devildom in Kyoto

Kyoto
6 hours

Kyoto has many legends. I'd like to show you a couple of Shrines. Abeno Seimei, a yin-yang master, told pros and cons of official functions of Imperial Court. Wake-no-Kiyomaro was saved by wild boars, so the divine messenger of the Goo shrine is a boar. Near Gion area, there are some temples that have the boundary between life and afterlife. I'd like to show you those temples.
