Before coming to Japan I use to work in the tourism business and I speak 5 languagges.
I came to Japan in 1997 and I've been leaving in Kyoto since then.
I like books, music and movies.
My family and I live in a little Japanese style house between the river Kamo and Shimogamo Shrine (both of them my favorit spots to relax), with tatami floors and an small garden. We have a cat (American short hair), and a dog (Akita).
I love this city for many reasons. It isn't only the perfect touristic spot with a huge number of world heritage culture and cuisine;
To those foreigners that are leaving here, and like me have children, it is probably the best city to be in Japan.
Kyoto has all the conveniences of any urban areas but without the rushing or the noise, and I may even say, the dangers.
The city has of course some "main" streets or a kind of "city centre" with lots of apartment stores, restaurants etc. and which usually are crowded almost 24 hours. But in that same area you can just find around the corner some little pedestrian streets that'll lead into a different world of order and quietness.
I'd like to introduce to our guest this "other Kyoto ":
The Kyoto that became my home after almost 19 years.
