My name is Shino Matsumoto, please call me Shino.
I was born and grew up in downtown Tokyo where my family runs a 'Sento' Japanese public bath.
I moved to Kyoto 15 years ago where I began to attend university.
I had been in love with Kyoto city ever since I visited when I was a high school student for a school trip.
Now I live with my family; my husband and two children, near Lake Biwa, about 20 miles from Kyoto.
I've been working in the travel industry for the last 5 years and truly love this job and the opportunities it gives me to introduce my country and the culture I love with guests from overseas. . . !!
If you have a particular interest or request, I will do my best to make arrangements for you.
Let me assist you to make your visit to Kyoto an extra special one.
