Yoshie K.

Kyoto, Japan

Hi, I am Yoshie and I was born and raised in Japan.

After spending 15 years in New York and 8 years in Italy, I decided to live in Kyoto to rediscover the history and culture of Japan. I enjoy traveling, especially going to Onsens (hot springs), music, cooking, and dining out. And I have a rare certification as an ONSEN (Hot spring) Sommelier and I can recommend the best onsens according to one's need!!

My passion towards traditional crafts such as ceramics and textiles has always been present. I really enjoy looking or purchasing those that are still handmade using techniques and technologies that have been passed down through generations.

I also enjoy finding restaurants of many different categories and I feel very happy when I discover the right places for me and other people. I like to dine out because I can eat food that are difficult to cook at home and I also enjoy atmosphere/spaces. It would me my pleasure to inform you my recommendations!
