About Guides


I'm the editor in chief of Sharing Kyoto. I love ramen, and it's about all I eat… nearly 200 bowls a year in fact. In some circles, I'm even known as the Ramen King!


Hi, I'm Sakurako, the translator as well as assistant of the ramen tour. I spent my childhood time in the UK, Oxford, so I will lead you to a great ramen experience by translating ramen king's passion into British English.


I was born and raised in Kyoto around 30 years. I like shopping and walking around town in Kyoto. So I'll take you to good shop where you can buy what you want. Let's enjoy shopping like the locals!


I'm Vanessa from Taiwan. I've lived in Kyoto for the last 6 years, and my favorite thing to do here is wander the city and shop. One of the places I go to most is Teramachi Street, and I think by now, I know it pretty well. Come along and let's get to shopping!


Hi everyone! I'm Yumemi, Sharing Kyoto's resident Shrine Girl. I absolutely adore Kyoto's profoundly historical shrines and temples (mainly shrines), so join me and learn all about the wonders they have in store.


Hi, I'm Shin, the assistant of the Shimogamo tour. While I've lived in Kyoto my entire life, I love traveling and have been to over 30 countries. I hope to make this tour fun and interesting not only as a Kyoto local, but a lover of travel!
