Why Hands On Kyoto Private Kyoto Tour?
At the core of Hands On Kyoto Tours lies our concept, “Hands On.” Hands On means getting a deeper experience by actually getting your hands on and experiencing Kyoto through our tours and experiences.
Our private tours have a careful blend of sightseeing and cultural experiences designed to be enjoyable, yet educational. We offer tours for clients ranging from individual travelers to groups.

What’s the Difference to other Private Kyoto Tours?
With over 15 years of knowledge and expertise in Kyoto and Nara, I understand visitors don’t have much time and want to do and see as much as they can.
Our tours are designed to optimize your time and carefully blend in sightseeing and Hands On experiences. Working at the Hyatt Regency Kyoto Hotel, I noticed the majority of tours were very touristy. Visitors tended to come away with a very limited idea of Kyoto.
Instead, our Private Kyoto Tours allow clients to delve a little deeper into Kyoto’s rich culture and history. I present things in easy to understand terms, careful to give you just enough history and knowledge to enjoy and appreciate Kyoto.
The other important difference to other tours are the connections I’ve developed with locals, giving you exclusive access to unique people and experiences. I carefully choose people who have passion for what they do and enjoy conveying that to visitors. With a Hands On experience sprinkled here and there, our tours bring Kyoto and it’s people to life.
