The Importantance of Reviews

reviews First, we’d just like to talk a little about why reviews are so important.

As a large number of articles on Sharing Kyoto are written by the Japanese Sharing Kyoto staff, they don’t include the outside perspective.

This is why we treasure your reviews so much. Because as someone from overseas, you can share your honest opinions about how it felt going to stores and restaurants here and what you liked about Kyoto.

From these honest opinions, we’re able to get a lot of information about the perspectives of people from outside Japan, such as what made you go to certain stores, or what you felt you needed to know in advance before going somewhere.

Here at Sharing Kyoto, we work to do exactly as our name says, share Kyoto with the thousands of foreigners living and traveling here. That’s why reviews are so important to us.
