I have been working as a cooking instructor for foreign tourists since 2014. I enjoy teaching Japanese cooking and talking to people from all over the world. I took a English guide license certified by City of Kyoto Visitors Host in 2019, and by the national government in 2022. Currently, I also work as a tour guide in Kyoto, Osaka, and Nara. I would like to introduce the beauty and deep culture of Kyoto to foreign tourists.
