About Tour Guide Keiko U.

Hi! I'm Keiko.

I was born in Osaka,raised in Nara, and now live in Kyoto, each of which is a lovely place.

I love cooking, travelling, eating, and meeting lots of people, which led me my current job as a tour guide and a cooking instructor here in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.

I'd like to show you the charms of Kyoto; the world heritage sites, nice spots good for social media, nice foods, hidden gems off the beaten track with the story of Japanese culture and history.

And I'd also like to assist you to make a lovely day through my Japanese cooking experience class.

Additionally, I love children and of course, respect the elderly.

The kids usually take to me right away!

I'd like to assist every member of your multi-generation family touring in Kyoto by my suggestions.

I look forward to welcoming you. See you soon!

Keiko San: The Perfect Guide for an Unforgettable Kyoto Experience

My family and I had the pleasure of having Keiko San as our guide during our stay in Kyoto, and I can't express how amazing she was. From the moment we met her, we knew we were in good hands. The weather during our trip was unexpectedly cold for that time of year, and we even had a bit of snow. While we weren't prepared, Keiko San made sure to take care of us. She went above and beyond by going to a local store and purchasing mittens and caps for us to stay warm. It was such an amazing touch and showed how much she cared about our well-being. Keiko San took the time to understand our interests and curated the perfect itinerary for us. We were able to visit a mix of popular temples and shrines, beautiful gardens, and even off the beaten path locations that we would not have found on our own. One of the highlights of our trip was the "ninja experience" that Keiko San arranged for our kids. They were thrilled and it was a unique and memorable experience for them. And speaking of kids, Keiko San even took us to a one-of-a-kind pig cafe, which was a big hit. Keiko San also made sure that we tried the best street food and picked the perfect restaurants for us. We had some of the most delicious meals during our stay, and it was all thanks to her recommendations. Another thing that I have to mention is that Keiko San has a talent for taking the best pictures. She captured so many beautiful moments for us, and I am so grateful for that. Overall, I can't recommend Keiko San enough. She went above and beyond to make sure that our trip was unforgettable. If you're looking for a guide who is knowledgeable, reliable, and genuinely cares about making sure you have the best experience possible, Keiko San is the perfect guide for you.

Dear my beautiful guests, What a wonderful review I received! Thank you so much for putting it that way. " I " enjoyed 3 days with you. Especially, I was so glad to hear your children loved my options for them , as they looked a little embarrassed at the first moment. Thank you for sharing the Samurai experience time and pig Cafe time with me!!! Hope your children enjoy my cooking session next time! See you in the near future. Best regards, Keiko

Wonderful guide with so much passion

Keiko is a wonderful guide who is knowledgeable, kind, patient and very friendly. She was a joy to be with. Our kids enjoyed Keiko's description of the shrines, temples and castles we visited. She is very warm and a great conversationalist. It truly felt like spending day with a dear friend. Thank you Keiko, you made our day in Kyoto fabulous!
