Kentaro S.

Kyoto, Japan

Dear travelers! I'm Ken. I'm a founder of a local tour agency located in the eastern Kyoto who is deeply fascinated by the city, its history, and its culture.

I'm especially into the Geisha culture, and the lifestyle and tradition of these Japanese entertainers. I'm here to help you discover new things, places and experiences. Kyoto has a lot of stories to tell, especially in the old geisha districts, shrines and temples hold unique stories that will astonish you, that you'll fall in love with, and that will connect you to the history.

I've been personally offering tours since 2016. I've guided over 3000 clients. Fortunately 99% of my clients gave me 5 stars and now I have over 1100 of 5 star reviews on Airbnb and TripAdvisor. I've been ranked and awarded as a guide in the Japan's top 30 on TripAdvisor. Also working as a fixer in Kyoto for shooting pv, movie, TV drama.

A Recent Review of this guide

Great and interesting off the beaten path tour. Ken knows the area and can show you some great places that aren't populated with tourists. It's much recommended.
