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 excellent guide and very helpful not only on the tour but also for helping us with a lost item she was able to track down for us. Chizuko's English is very good and we highly recommend her.
