I am good at making a tour plan based on your interests because i know my city ( I was born and brought up in Kyoto) in detail.
If you are interested in historic places, I will offer the tour for historic places.
If cultural experience, then the tour with cultural classes such as tea ceremony, wagashi ( Japanese confection ) making, and so on.
Why don't you ask me? I will make your time in Kyoto more enjoyable.
Kyoto has a lot of faces to show you and it is difficult for you to decide
which to choose among them. I think I will be of great help.

Excellent walking tour. Tomoko is helpful, thoughtful and caring. Our family had a fun and fulfilling day. We visited the main attractions at East Kyoto. We will recommend friends and also book a tour with her in our next trip.

My tour with Ms Tomoko was really wonderful! Ms Tomoko was really accommodative as my mum couldn't walk fast, Ms Tomoko will check on her ability to carry on with our tour. We were appreciative of her gesture. Her knowledge of the rich history was awesome! We enjoyed her company very much! Recommended!
Since there is so much to see in Kyoto we asked Tomoko to just do sightseeing in Kyoto. She arrived perfectly in time and we shortly discussed our planned day. Tomoko speaks good english and knows her hometown perfectly. So we started early by subway and visited wonderfull temples and shrines, for which Tomoko had the whole background and early and later history. Tomoko was so kind to adapt to our speed since we wanted to take lots of pictures. And for lunch she took us in a wonderfull local restaurant without tourist. Since we had seen enough shrines we changed the afternoon program to visit the monthly flea market, which just happend this day. Tomoko is very fit and was kind of sorry not to show us more of her city. But we were exhausted and just couldn't take more - and there ist much more to see for fitter people. So she braught us back to our Hotel.
At lunch I forgot my lens in the restaurant, which was quiet some way away from our hotel. I realy got a headache how to get this lens back after such a long day. Tomoko, without asking, offered me to get my lens and bring it to the hotel - for nothing. I will never forget this act of friendship. I guess in europe nobody would have offered me this. Thank you again, Tomoko.
