Hi, I am Chai. An enthusiastic Ph.D. student, traveler, and tour guide who has been living in Kyoto since 2019. I immediately fell in love with the city's rich cultural heritage, stunning natural beauty, and warm and welcoming locals during my short visit in 2018. Ever since I have enjoyed sharing my passion for Kyoto with visitors from all around the world. I have a wealth of knowledge about the city's history, traditions, and hidden gems that are often overlooked by tourists. I can fluently speak more than 4 Indian languages, English, and basic conversational Japanese, and have a friendly and approachable personality. Whether you're interested in exploring the city's ancient temples, indulging in local cuisine, or discovering off-the-beaten-path neighborhoods, I can tailor tours to suit your interests and preferences. The goal is to create unforgettable experiences for guests and to show them the beauty and magic of Kyoto that captured my heart.
