Hi, I’m Gigi

I’ve lived in Kyoto for 3 years

I speak English and some Japanese

I am a artist and teacher


Hello, My name is Gigi! I have lived in Kyoto for almost 4 years now. While that is not a long while for some. It is my favorite city. I love living here and learning more about it each day. I am also a painter and studied art at University. Before moving to Kyoto for language school, I spent 6 years in Seoul, South Korea as well. I enjoy talking with and spending time with people— especially when we can talk about food, art, and culture! I have lived in Shijo, Gion, Kiyomizu, and now Arashiyama, and just enjoy sharing all the things I genuinely love about this city!
