A new way to enjoy Kyoto for the modern traveler . Kyoto is known for its rich history and temples, but there’s so much more to Kyoto than what’s written in the guide books. A mix of traditional x modern Kyoto, this tour is for people who likes food, architecture, stylish shops, off the beaten path shrines and temples. As a certified tour curator, I usually provide my services to luxury hotels but I wanted more people to experience this magical version of Kyoto that is loved by creative locals. The creative tour will take you to some special gems in Kyoto including stylish shops, a coffee shop, a unique shrine and temple! We will end the tour with a new multi-purpose building in Gion where you will have the chance to sit down, have a drink, mingle and also pick my brain about things to do in Kyoto! Through the tour you will learn about the contemporary culture as well as the history of Kyoto (important!) and I will also point out some special shops and restaurants you can visit on your own time.
Hi I’m Sara, I am a certified tour manager and the founder of Curated Kyoto, a travel boutique that introduces travellers to a new way to enjoy Kyoto for the web and for in-person tours. www.curatedkyoto.com Before Curated Kyoto I worked in a Kyoto based media team. I have directed shoots for temples and shrines, shared stories, and co-authored the ‘Amazing Kyoto’ guide book. As a half-Japanese child growing up, one of the greatest gifts my mother gave me was raising me with two languages and cultures. My absolute passion is to introduce you to this beautiful and creative city.
