Private tour guide Eri

Eri K.

Kyoto, Japan

Hi, I'm Eri , a national licensed tour guide. I was born in Marburg in Germany and grew up in Kyoto.

After graduating from the university, I moved to Tokyo, a huge modern city, to work as a consultant for American software company and other companies in Tokyo. And now I am back in my hometown and enjoy sharing time with many guests from all over the world.

For those interested in historical places and the culture, Kyoto is one of the best destinations to experience traditional Japanese culture and get in touch with its history. I would be glad to be your guide !

I look forward to seeing you here in Kyoto !!

My interests;
Of course, historical structures and their stories, Buddhist statues and Japanese Gardens.
Tea Ceremony (can serve you a cup of green tea!)
Photography (can show you photogenic sites. )
YOGA & ZEN (also have a license to teach YOGA!)
Skiing, Sailing (love outdoor sports. )

A Recent Review of this guide

Eri was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and flexible. She gave us great local insight into Kinkakuji and Ryoanji. Thank you so much for spending time with us. We highly recommend her tour, the time we spent was so enjoyable.. even though I've been to Kyoto before she gave me a new love for my two favourite locations. Thanks again Eri, we will be back!
