Hello! I'm Haru, your friendly guide to the heart and soul of Kyoto. I have a deep love for the rich traditions and culinary delights of this beautiful city. Exploring Kyoto is like walking through a living history book, and I'm thrilled to share it with you! My favorite moments are spent wandering through the charming streets of Gion and Kiyomizu districts.

I'm passionate about discovering local, hidden gems, especially those cozy ramen spots that only the locals know about. As a temple enthusiast, I can guide you through Kyoto's serene and majestic temples, each with its own story and beauty. Whether you're a foodie, a history buff, or just looking for a friendly face in Kyoto, I'm here to make your visit unforgettable. Let's dive into the heart of Kyoto together!
