Hi my name is Niall and I am looking forward to meeting you! I love Japan and I really like helping people find the beauty and unique features of this country. I have only been living here about 6 years, but I have been fascinated by the history and sociology of the country.

That's why I started Kyoto Fun!

    Family Fun in Kyoto for a day! Great Kyoto tour with Niall - great communication prior to fit in our favoured destinations. A great mix of temples and Drum lesson & market tour with great lunch. Our 2 sons 10 & 12yo enjoyed the tour as well. Plenty of photo opportunities and questions answered. Niall was warm engaging and very helpful. Thanks. lot - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Made our short stay in Kyoto very fulfilled.And not too tiring for the 6.5hrs plus.

    Kyoto Fun: Cycling Tour

    Kyoto Fun: Cycling Tour We absolutely LOVED our tour with Niall. The bike tour was our first experience in Kyoto and he was able to provide great details about the city and culture, must see's, and best times to visit the tourist hot-spots. Our guide even helped us make phone calls to coordinate a lost suitcase with the airport which was a HUGE help.

    We highly recommend this tour to anyone - biking is such a great way to see the city and with a guide you really get the most out of your day.

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour I have dreamed of visiting the Fushimi Inari shrine for years, but friends who have gone always come back with photos with hundreds of other tourists in the background. Besides the fact that that won't work for my Christmas card, I can't imagine that you get the full experience of the shrine while dodging other people. Not only were we the only people on this tour, we were almost the only people in the shrines! Our guide, Emilien, was knowledgeable and shared many facts and stories about our destinations. We even saw things not listed in the tour, and you can tell that Emilien really enjoys talking to people and loves Japan. I would highly recommend this tour!

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour You should book this tour if you are looking for an unique stress-free experience when touring major sites in Kyoto.

    Being early risers (also very jet lagged) this tour was perfect for us to see the Fushimi Inari Shrines, Bamboo Forest and Tenryuji Temple. We were able to experience these places without any stress or claustrophobia.

    Emilien was an awesome guide. He was knowledgeable and a great host. We enjoyed talking to him and he had some great suggestions on other temples to visit that was off the beaten path.

    I highly recommend this tour!
