Welcome to Kyoto! My name's Tohru. Please call me Toh-ru or Toh-ru-san. I am a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter. I was born and grew up in Kyoto, so I'm very familiar with many sightseeing spots and attractions in Kyoto. If you would like to enjoy walking around Kyoto in YUKATA or KIMONO, I'll be happy to prepare it for you in advance.

Kyoto is a fascinating and picturesque city visited by lots of foreign tourists every year. I can offer you unique experiences in this beautiful city, which can include visits to traditional Japanese gardens, ancient temples and shrines designated as world heritage sites, authentic Japanese cultural experiences such as exploring the traditional townhouse called MACHIYA, the food market called NISHIKI, shopping arcades and fantastic museums. With a flexible approach, I can help you personalize your agenda.

When you have a chance to visit Kyoto, please contact me anytime and anywhere!

I'll be looking forward to seeing you and spending wonderful time with you.

See you soon!

An outstanding tour experience of Kyoto. Mr Tohru had arranged a thoughtful itinerary. He was very knowledgeable, an excellent host who was very considerate. Mr Tohru has an excellent command of English as well. Highly recommended.

Dear Moe-san, Thank you very much for joining my tour! I'm glad that you have enjoyed one-day tour too much. You are so friendly, open-minded and kind-hearted that I could spend a wonderful day guiding you around Kyoto. You are one of the most delightful guests, so I would like to show you around Kyoto again. Thank you so much! Best regards,
