Guide Bio

I am a professional sightseeing guide and tour operator based out of Kyoto, Japan. I spent the first part of my life living in Israel and graduated from the University of Jerusalem in 1994 with degrees in East Asian Studies and Anthropology. After graduating, I became a lead guide for a company in Israel.

I lived in Japan for a year in 1989 but moved back here permanently in 1995. During my time here, I have had the opportunity to practice at a Zen Monastery and to study the arts of Japanese pottery and miniature plant cultivation. I am very knowledgeable about the local history, culture and traditions of Japan and love sharing that knowledge with clients.

If you are looking for one of the best sightseeing guides in Japan, please choose me. I guarantee you’ll leave with many amazing memories and a new found love for Kyoto.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
