Hands On Kyoto was launched in December of 2010. It’s purpose is to facilitate a deeper connection between visitors and Kyoto or help visitors get their “Hands On Kyoto.” By providing content with a focus on local artisans, businesses and people who possess a passion to share their unique cultural perspectives, Hands On Kyoto envisions creating enjoyable, yet educational experiences for both locals and visitors to Kyoto.

Who runs it?

Hands On Kyoto is owned and operated by longtime resident Greg Koch. For more details on Greg have a look at his Personal Biography

I look forward to deepening my understanding of Kyoto and increasingly creating more content as the months and years pass by. Honestly, this endeavour gives me a reason to delve deeper into one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. Hopefully others will be interested in joining me in the journey to get our “Hands on Kyoto.”

We’d love to hear from you!

Hands On Kyoto is always trying to improve the quality and enjoyment of our website and all of its content. Please feel free to make any suggestions or comments on existing content or better yet, propose new ideas for content you would like to see.

Best wishes for 2017, year of the Rooster!
Greg Koch
