< Story >
I am a Japanese, living in Osaka. I’ve been a professional trekking tour guide for years, and has just started my own tour business.
When I was 18, I fell in love with Kyoto all at once after one visiting. Then I chose University in Kyoto and lived for 5 years.
My Kyoto student life was always with my lovely bicycle.
Bicycle is really necessary and best way to enjoy flat city of Kyoto.
(Kyoto has plenty of beautiful places, but with bus or train you need to change and take time)
I’ll take you to very local places via my favorite route. This is the hi-light of north-east part of Kyoto city.
