Hi! I'm Sara Okamoto, a university student that was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan. I love learning languages and cultures since they're fun to learn and make me understand different perceptions. I love to travel and have visited Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Sweden by myself, so I know how it feels to be a tourist myself and the experience I would love to have in a new city. As Kyoto is home to me, I know many places where tourists should visit, which are not popular tourist places, but places where people where locals in Kyoto like to go. Also, I'm well versed in religious rituals and etiquette and I'd love to share the history of Buddhism and Shintoism and the way to pray during visiting shrines and temples. I can't wait to take you around Kyoto and share my knowledge and experiences.
