I’m a huge ramen lover! I feel as if I’m in heaven when I eat a heavy ramen while drinking beer after work. It’s been a large number of ramen noodles I’ve had already! I, the ramen lover, recommend the best ramen from among all the ramen I’ve had!

Yumemi
Yumemi
Hello everyone! I’m Yumemi and my hobby is going to shrines and temples. I love the shrines and temples of Kyoto so much that I visit at least one per week! There are many shrines and temples that are not yet that famous but are still very beautiful and nice. I want to write about shrines and temples that are not yet on guidebooks and their history! I would be so happy if you’d read my articles when you plan your travels to Kyoto!

Hello! I’m Miyabi. I’m born and bred in Kyoto and am a lover of matcha obsessed Uji. In my free time, I like to wander Kyoto. While I don’t go to major tourist spots so can’t tell you much about them, I know a ton of quiet, Kyoto-esque hole-in-the-wall spots that don’t see a lot of people!

Vinny
Hi, I'm Vinny from New Zealand.Although not a Kyoto native, I've now called this place home for over two years, and I think it's fair to say I know my way around pretty well. Initially drawn in by the beautiful temples, shrines and abundance of greenery, I now love this city for its vibrant underground art scene, chill cafes, cool people, and fixation with curry and coffee.

I like eating Japanese cuisine in Kyoto. The food is not only delicious but also looks beautiful. I can feel the positive attitude the chefs have towards providing the best for customers whenever I try restaurants in Kyoto.
