Private tour guide Kaori

Kaori K.

Kinokawa-City, Wakayama, Japan

Hello. I've been a guide specialized around Koyasan for over 20 years and always found it a lot of fun.

Koyasan is my favorite place and it's a great pleasure to introduce this mysterious world and walk with you here. Once you stepped into Koyasan, you will be attracted by Japanese culture, history, religion, nature, tradition and more.
Why don't you join my tour? I'll share this treasure with you.

I can also offer a special tour using the limousine service to make you less stressful for Koyasan, Osaka, Nara on your own time and interests that the big travel agency can't cover.

Please receive my hearty reception for your special tour!

A Recent Review of this guide

Koyasan is an intricate, complicated cultural, historical and religious entity, with a richness which requires deep interpretation and study. I was very fortunate to a spend a short time gaining insights into and learning the stories of Koyasan from Ms. Kaori. She served as an excellent teacher on historical and current Buddhist practices and the relationship between Shinto and Buddhism. Her engaging personality and focus took the chill from the cold, driving rain of that day on the mountain.
