Hi there! I'm Justin, a local host in Kyoto, one of the most beautiful cities in Japan. I love Kyoto's perfect balance of tradition and modernity and the relaxed pace of life that makes you feel like you can breathe again. When I'm not exploring the city's hidden gems, I love to sit at a cozy cafe by the river and enjoy a good book or take a leisurely walk down the bustling shopping district. My expertise is in finding all the best places for good food, drinks, and photo opportunities in Kiyamachi, Kawaramachi, Ninenzaka, and Gion. If you're looking for an authentic, laid-back experience in Kyoto, I'm your guy! Let's have some fun discovering this beautiful city together.
