Hi guests! My nickname is "Taka-san".I know Kansai area very well.Because I lived in Kyoto,Osaka,Kobe and Shiga. I already have a off the beaten path tour in Osaka.All my guests are satisfied with my tour.So I would make Kyoto version .I can take you to the shop which is hardly accepted for foreigner.But if you join the tour, you can smoothly enter in and enjoy atmosphere by my arranging every situation.So let's get to cut in real Kyoto! my prevous guest,Ben,gave me five stars and review comment.. "Takahiko is a great local guide. He brought our group to unique places we definitely won’t venture on our own, being tourists who don’t speak Japanese! We had a great time - good food choices and also learning some new local words from him. Oh, he can get funny at times too which is nice! Given a chance, I don’t mind doing this again :)"

Where you'll be
Focus on 2 shops where foreign tourists can not enter alone. Old stores in Kyoto,very popular among tourists, often do not correspond to English. As a result, can not easily enter in.So I'll guide to let you enter in smoothly. moreover I recommend standing style bar shop because ordinary kyoto people often visit and it's possibility for tourists to interact with them. I try to arrange this situation as well as possible.
