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

We had a great time with Chizuko as she took us around many of the major sites in Kyoto for our first visit here. She's very knowledgeable about both the historical and cultural significance of the palaces and shrines we visited and shared that knowledge in a very thoughtful and easy to understand fashion. And she also gave us insight into what it's like to be a native Kyoto resident. We were very happy to have her as our guide and would recommend her without hesitation!
