Hi there! I'm Tess, a local host in the breathtaking city of Kyoto. I love to participate in all the activities and ceremonies that Kyoto has to offer, from tea ceremonies to exploring the city during the cherry blossom and autumn leaf seasons. As a tour guide at a traditional culture museum in Kyoto, I have an in-depth knowledge of all things cultural, historical, and traditional, from Maiko and Geisha to Samurai and Ninjas. And I can't wait to share that knowledge with you! I'm always on the lookout for hidden gems and Insta-worthy spots, and I love to explore all that Kyoto has to offer. I'm always eager to share stories and perspectives that you won't find on a regular tour, and I can't wait to show you why this city is so special to me!
