Hello there! I'm Atsuya, your friendly local host here in Kyoto. Immersed in the rich culture of this city, I find joy in the seamless blend of tradition and modernity. From the serene temples and shrines to the vibrant streets of Shijo and Gion, Kyoto's energy captivates me every day. One of my favorite pastimes is exploring cozy cafes and record shops scattered throughout the city. As a musician myself, I thrive on the local music scene, often attending performances at bars and restaurants. I know neighborhoods like Gion, Shijo, and Arashiyama like the back of my hand. With a deep understanding of Kyoto's customs, traditions, and history, I'm here to ensure your experience is nothing short of extraordinary. Let's uncover the hidden gems and create memories together in this enchanting city! See you soon.
