Hi, I’m Gresha

I’ve lived in Kyoto for 9 years

I speak English and some Japanese

I am a Preschool teacher


Greetings, my fellow travelers; my name is Gresha. I have lived and worked here in Japan for almost 13 years. I work as a preschool teacher in the Kyoto prefecture. I love to explore and travel during the weekends. I also like outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, kayaking, and camping. I am easygoing and want to meet people from all over the world. Learning about other cultures and having good conversations always make me happy. I would love to share my lovely experiences and take you to the most beautiful places in the ancient capital. We can enjoy the best scenery, experience the culture, eat the local cuisine, and enjoy the city's most delicious matcha. If you also like nature, Kyoto has some beautiful mountains to explore and hike, with an overview of the town and beautiful waterfalls you can visit in a day. It would be my pleasure to help you explore and fall in love with the beautiful city of Kyoto, just like I did.
