I came to Japan more than 30 years ago. Soon after I started my studies at Doshisha University in Kyoto. Being the only foreign student in the faculty helped me to understand the people better and learn a lot about Japanese society and the city itself.

Whenever I had free time I took my bicycle to ride around Kyoto, to visit new interesting places, and because of its 1200 years history, I haven't seen them all yet.

Showing people around Kyoto is always a great adventure, because no matter how many times I visit the same place, it shows me again and again something new that I can share with my guests.
