Mari, private guide in Kyoto

HELLO, I’M MARI

I live in Arashiyama.
I work in All over the city.
I hang out in Western part of Kyoto, Mountainous area in Kyoto, Off the beaten tracks in Kyoto.

About me

Hello everyone and welcome to Japan! I am Mari, a dynamic and friendly Japanese woman, married to a lovely Frenchman, enjoying life and discovering the hidden gems of Kyoto. I could show you either the main sightseeings of the city such as the UNESCO World Heritage temples and shrines or my favorite places including local craftsmen and off-the-beaten-path spots. My priority is to make sure that you get the most out of your time in the city. Personally, I like to talk about everything: not just about Japanese history, but also its culture, daily life, the people. I also like comparing cultures, because I think we are all connected in one way or another. I will show you the places that you'll not find in guidebooks, and this way I can make sure your visit is a memorable one. I am looking forward to meeting you soon!
