Hey there! I'm Ai, your friendly neighborhood host here in enchanting Kyoto! One of my absolute joys is exploring Kyoto's hidden gems, from cozy cafes tucked away in Gion to serene temples nestled amidst the bamboo forests. And let's not forget about the rivers! There's something magical about the Kamogawa and Uji rivers. You'll often find me at the local cinema, indulging in the intimate atmosphere and passion for film that sets Kyoto apart. I've dived deep into the city's art, music, and fine-tasting scene, making connections along the way. Fun fact about me, I'm a bit of a sword fighter. It's true! So, whether you're craving a soulful temple experience or a cinematic adventure, count on me to take you through the wonders of Kyoto. Let's create memories as vibrant and beautiful as the city itself!
