Hello, I am working in a foreign professional firm and the apartment and machiya style house are my second houses in Kyoto. I picked these places because I wanted to stay away from busy, hectic work during weekends.
I was a mechanical engineer for eight years after university and earned an MBA in the US before joining the current firm. I like travelling both domestic and overseas and love talking with all different kinds of people from different cultures. I am also a big fan of great food in Kyoto and Kansai areas. One day I'd like to move to Kyoto and this is my first step to be closer to and familiar with the city. I stay once or twice in Kyoto over the weekend but since this place is so nice, I'd like to share this fun with some other people coming from outside of Japan.
