Hi, I’m Emi and I will be your friendly host in Kyoto! You will fall in love with the city immediately on arrival. I can show you the beauty of the city through its culture, history, architecture and food. Especially food is my passion. I have personally been to more than 700 restaurants and bars, so I can assure it will be a feast for your taste buds! Also, if you are interested in Japanese tea-culture, I have got your back. I used to work in hotels and welcome our guests with tea ceremony (Urasenke style), and I'd love to share with you my knowledge about Japanese tea. I’ll do my best to make your experience great and hope you will have a wonderful memory!
