I want to show visitors the good things Kyoto has to offer that I see through my daily life. With that in mind, I administer Sharing Kyoto. One of the great things about Kyoto is that it’s full of both new and old things. There are many long-standing shops, temples and machiya houses. Treasuring traditional things while creating new culture and movement is what Kyoto is all about. Accepting all kinds of people and welcoming them to learn about the city are wonderful appealing points of Kyoto.
