Greetings! I'm Cahaya, and I'm excited to be your local host in the amazing city of Kyoto. This city has a special place in my heart as it's a beautiful blend of old and new, traditional and modern, serene and vibrant. I love exploring the back alleys of Kyoto and discovering hidden gems that most tourists never get to see. Whether it's strolling along the Kamo River, admiring the natural scenery in hidden spots, or simply soaking in the city's rich culture and history, there's never a dull moment in Kyoto. I'm particularly knowledgeable about the Higashiyama Ward, Sakyo Ward, and Nakagyo Ward, and I'm always eager to show you the lesser-known places that most people have never heard about. And if you have specific dietary needs, I have got you covered! I know all the best places that cater to a variety of tastes and requirements. So if you're looking for an enthusiastic and knowledgeable local host, look no further! I'm ready to show you the best of Kyoto and help you create unforgettable memories in this beautiful city. Let's explore Kyoto together!
