Creative Director/Certified Tour Guide (Kyoto Visitors Host)
I am a creative director who shares stories of Kyoto with the world and a certified tour guide who is passionate about connecting people with Kyoto.

WHAT OTHERS SAY

Sara is the first person I call whenever I touch down in Kyoto. Her extensive local knowledge & extremely helpful and friendly demeanor is what sets her apart from the rest. Whether it’s something traditional or something culturally relevant to today’s youth-she has you covered. Her English as well as her Japanese are completely fluent and makes it so much easier to tour the city with a true local.

Sara was the most wonderful and thoughtful guide. Her charismatic nature, knowledge of the destination, and passion for Kyoto is contagious! We took a large group of international press to discover what makes Kyoto so special and thanks so Sara, it was a truly magical and memorable experience that we will cherish for a lifetime

I usually dread tour guides. It can often feel like information is being shared straight from a book rather than genuine storytelling. This is what made my tour around Kyoto with Sara so special. Her love for her culture coupled with her genuine knowledge of Kyoto and its history made me fall even more in love with Japan. Forget boring, outdated tour guides. Book Sara now. You won't regret it.
