Hello, I’m Georgina. I come from Uganda. I’ve been living in Kyoto since April 2015, and I’m definitely counting on being here still in the foreseeable future. For me, the fascinating thing about Kyoto is the perfect balance between city and country. The fact that you can be out in the mountains and nature by a simple 30-minute bus ride from the city is just mind-blowing. Then of course there is the historical Gion district, the unlimited number of temples, shrines, and palaces right within the city. Not to mention, the shopping places for affordable Japanese souvenirs, and of course the eateries that live true to Japan’s fame for unique delicious food. I also know some places that serve great plant-based foods at reasonable prices. Whatever your preference is, I got you! Why not come and explore Kyoto with me? I look forward to meeting you soon!
