Private tour guide Chizuko

Chizuko H.

Kyoto, Japan

Hello. I'm Chizuko, a licensed tour guide living in Kyoto.

Kyoto has a lot of historical, cultural and scenic places worth visiting. I'll show you around those places, sharing my knowledge about Kyoto and Japanese culture. I always feel more than happy to see my customers smiling and laughing. So I'll do the best what I can with hospitality to see your smile.

A Recent Review of this guide

Chizuko, was an amazing guide, offering history and information, even before we left the hotel. She gave us a real feel of the people and culture as well as history and her experiences. She is a registered guide, which we found out is not a prerequisite by "Tours By Locals". Highly recommend.
