As a long-time resident of Kyoto and an enthusiastic traveler, I know where the magical places are and how to organize an unforgettable day on the streets of the old capital of Japan. Furthermore, I never get tired of exploring the picturesque nature around Kyoto and organising tours in these areas untouched by mass tourism.
