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!

We focus on giving you flexible and fun days out which are catered to couples and small groups of friends and people travelling on their own. You can join in on a group tour or we can create customised itineraries which are designed with your unique interests and travel style in mind.

Relax while we take care of all the details to make sure you have the best day in Kyoto. We offer day trips by bicycle, on foot or by public transport. No need to figure out a complicated transport network on your own. We also offer nature hikes and nightlife bar hopping experiences. Take the stress out of your holiday and know you are in good hands when you book with us.

Our small team of travel buddies are all people who love Kyoto and enjoy showing off all that this great city has to offer, offering inside knowledge on the most popular sights and showing you some of the hidden gems that make this one of the most attractive travel destinations in the world. Our people are knowledgable, have cross cultural experience and are fun loving and caring. Our number one objective is to be adaptable to our clients interests, entertain you with tales from the past or present and have a laugh along the way.

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour Though my review is a little bit late, I will always remember our gracious host and guide Niall. He made sure our family understood the roots of Japanese culture and the significance of the places we were visiting. Albeit, it was not easy for him managing a family of 5 with 2 senior citizens and also having a child - managing expectations and varying personalities can be taxing for guides. Overall, very good tour - take the morning tour so you veer away from the crowds. Just a note, the walk back to the train station from Arashiyama is far - would suggest taking a rikshaw or other form especially when with elderly or kids.

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour My daughter and I really enjoyed this tour of Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kiyomizu-dera Temple and the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove with our guide Eric. Eric regaled us with interesting stories of Japanese history and lore as we made our way through Kyoto. It was quite a bit of walking for us but I know it can't be helped to get to some of these sites. So glad that Eric recommended going at 6 am because we were really able to enjoy the sites with few crowds. Arigato gozaimasu, Eric!

    See the morning freshness of Kyoto in an early bird tour Eric was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable about Japanese history. He was a gracious host and asked how we wanted to structure the day and how much time we wanted to spend at each event. We were fortunate to have only the two of us on the tour!

    Go on a Gion Night Walk, Kyoto

    Go on a Gion Night Walk, Kyoto Not one for tours, usually, but I had no regrets with this tour experience. Some of the places we visited are places I wouldn't have found by myself, and for that I am thankful! Our guide, Francesco, was all smiles and super fun, too. Would def sign up for another tour with Kyoto Fun.

    Go on a Gion Night Walk, Kyoto

    Go on a Gion Night Walk, Kyoto The walk through Gion was informative as our guide knows his stuff! We were taken through the back streets of Gion and shown the homes of Geishas, a spooky night light zen garden, pagoda and many other interesting spots. Geisha culture is fascinating! After the walk we did a bar hopping tour, this is a must. We were shown hidden bars and a stand up bar tucked away in places you wouldn’t find on your own. We got home at 430am after karaokeing the night away... I think that’s testament enough on how enjoyable this night was.
