Exploring Kyoto's vibrant food scene is my passion. Whether it's sipping on matcha at quaint cafes or indulging in Kyoto's renowned bakeries, I'm always up for a taste adventure. And let's not forget my love for fashion – you'll often find me exploring thrift stores for unique finds. As your Kyoto guru, I've got you covered with insider knowledge on the best restaurants, both upscale and quirky, as well as the city's top shopping districts. So, let's embark on a journey together and uncover the true essence of Kyoto!
