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

Eris is excellent and this was our second tour with her. Eri continued to add to our learning of Kyoto and Japan. This tour was focussed on the Gion area and Kiyomuzi Temple. Eri's knowledge of history and explanations of the area and traditions of the geisha were very interesting. The Kiyomizu Temple is great - don't be put off that renovations are happening.
