Ahmed A.

Kyoto, Japan

My name is Ahmed. I was born in Kuwait in 1982. I started learning English at a young age in high school, then got my medicine in 2008.

I came to Kyoto in 2015 and found myself surrounded by many historic ancient temples and shrines and such beautiful scenery all around.

I enjoy traveling, and have been to so many countries before, so I made my mind and decided to work as a tour guide here in Japan in 2015. Since then , I have been working as a with great enthusiasm and success.

I am a culture, history and food fan, so I can introduce to you the best about the Japanese culture, a historic background about each place we visit, and can recommend to you the best food options in Kyoto. I know well how to make your visit to Kyoto an unforgettable experience. I will show you why I believe that Kyoto is the most beautiful city in Japan.

I am fluent in English and Arabic, flexible, open minded and like having fun. I enjoy my work, like to share my knowledge and experiences and have the ability to communicate and deal with people from different cultures and backgrounds.

A Recent Review of this guide

Ahmed is perfectly fluent in English. He is a delightful guide and knows the history of the major shrines and temples in Kyoto. He went out of his way to customize our sightseeing trip and even planned future days. We highly recommend him!
