Hey there, I'm Andrew, your local host here in Kyoto! If you're up for exploring this amazing city, I'm your guy. For those who want a taste of Japan's sake tradition, Fushimi Sake Village is a must. I'll introduce you to the finest local brews, including seasonal delights. Kyoto strikes an exquisite balance between natural wonders and urban excitement, making it perfect for everyone. I'm a temple and shrine enthusiast, always seeking the beauty and stories they hold. Singing my heart out at karaoke joints is my way of unwinding – trust me, I know the best spots. I know Shijo-Karasuma, Gion-Shijo, Uji, and Byodoin like the back of my hand! So, whether you seek a tranquil escape, cultural immersion, or an electrifying tour of Kyoto's nightlife, I've got your back! Let's make your Kyoto journey unforgettable!
