Hello. I am a landscape designer living in Kyoto for the last decade. Over the last 3.5 years I have been leading walks of many of the amazing gardens here through my small business called An Design, which has become one of the highest rated tour companies in Kyoto.

Drawing on my 16 years of garden experience in the U.S. and Japan and my self-studies in Eastern philosophy since my early teens, I am able to provide experiences for my guests that are unique and from the heart.

As the only foreigner to graduate from the Kyoto Japanese Garden Training Program, I have gained insights to Japanese culture and gardens that are very rare for an outsider to obtain.

Come with me on an adventure away from the regular tourist route and immerse yourself in the exquisite and mystical nature of Kyoto.

We really enjoyed the presentation. It was well organized, thoughtful, and felt like we were really there! I learned a lot, was inspired, and hope to visit this site "live" in the near future. Andrew was also an excellent tour guide - knowledgeable and patient with questions. Loved the slides and the background information.
