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!

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour This is an awesome tour. Definitely worth it. Went on a private tour with Emilien. Was incredibly informative and insightful about Japan culture and history. Was very flexible and down to earth an awesome guide. The early start is definitely worth it. Less crowds the better. Best day in Kyoto ever and would definitely book this again. Emilien, thanks for being such a top bloke and a legend for showing me around Kyoto. You're aces in my book. Cheers buddy.

    Kyoto Fun: Bar Hopping Experience!

    Kyoto Fun: Bar Hopping Experience! As a solo traveler, I wanted to find a way to have a night out and meet new people. Niall's tour was great and very well organised! Such a fantastic way to see the city, have a few (or a lot of) drinks and have some fun with people from all over the globe :) 10/10 would recommend for your trip in Kyoto.

    Hike to Kurama Temple & Enjoy a Hot Spring Bath!

    Hike to Kurama Temple & Enjoy a Hot Spring Bath! Niall and Paul were fun tour guides that made it an enjoyable experience. They were both able to make the walk/hike very casual and appropriate to each of our fitnesses which made it enjoyable for everyone. Niall was very accomodating to where we wanted to rest and stop and have a chat.
    He was also able to give us some stories and information about the Kuranda area which was grey.
    Furthermore the onsen was very relaxing after the hike, and although it was a bit daunting at first, after you relax, you forget and just enjoy yourself in the onsen. I would go back again if I could.

    Thank you Niall for an enjoyable time at Kurama

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour Emilien was such an amazing tour guide. He was very patient with us especially when we became lost to meet up with us.
    He was very informative and the tour went smoothly with him explaining to us the origins of the gates, statues and significance of every detail places at the Kiyomizu Temple and Fushimi Inari Shrine. We were unable to go to the third place as mentioned as we were late and had another appointment to attend to, however I felt that I Emilien made the most out of the time we had and was more than happy to extend the time only if we didn't have to be with his partner Niall later that afternoon.
    Emilien was very casual and allowed us to venture to places and buy souvenirs, which was great. Would love to go on another tour around Osaka with Emilien again if I was to come back to Osaka in the near future.

    Thank you Emilien, from Jesslyn, Jenny and Kevin (the thee lost kids) 😁
