About your host

I'm an artist with a passion for travel! I've traveled the world with my paints and sketchbook but now call Kyoto home. I have over a decade of teaching experience, specializing in helping beginners learn to paint. My goal is to help you see the beauty of Kyoto with an artist's eye and capture it using your own unique style, and also give you the tools to create travel sketchbooks of your own…

Where you'll be

We'll get our start in the southern Fushimi area. Peppered with sake breweries and laced with old canals that used to be the arteries of commerce in days gone by, it's the perfect setting to try out your new watercolor kit and learn some basics. After that, we'll stroll through a retro shopping arcade and hop a train to the nearby Fushimi Inari shrine, famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates that wind up a forested mountain slope.
