Hey there! I'm Afifa, your go-to local host in enchanting Kyoto. I love to immerse myself in the city's vibrant culture, attending iconic festivals like Aoi Matsuri, Gion Matsuri, and Jidai Matsuri. This city is an adventurer wonderland, with many cultural and natural wonders, as well as diverse shopping districts. Exploring Kyoto is my passion, especially when it involves vintage gems. From the charming Kawaramachi Sanjo to the historic Higashiyama, I know the ins and outs of Kyoto's neighborhoods. I'm a foodie, constantly enjoying the variety of local noodle shops and bakeries. Being a Kyoto guru, I've got the inside scoop on vintage kimono markets and flea markets. So, whether you're a culture buff or a foodie explorer, join me in unlocking the excitement of Kyoto. Let's make your Kyoto experience unforgettable!
