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 qualification 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 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 historical 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 was a great host for our Kyoto tour. He is extremely knowledgeable and showed us many amazing sites. He was also very flexible and accommodating when we asked to alter our itinerary. Ahmed was also kind enough to give us restaurant recommendations and offered to be available to answer any questions we might have while traveling in Kyoto. Everyone in our group had a wonderful time! Thank you Ahmed!
