How we started We are a small group of friends offering fun filled experiences for people visiting Kyoto. As avid travellers ourselves, we have always enjoyed joining casual and friendly experiences rather than an official tour run by a big company when abroad but realised there are not many similar services in Japan, so that's why we started Kyoto Fun. Why join us? Kyoto has so many rich offerings that it’s hard to know where to start. With an insider’s knowledge you can be sure to get the most out of your short time here. Join a group of other travellers and share the experience or choose a private tour. We are always happy to pass on tips for things to do after the day is done too, even offering to reserve a recommended restaurant or help secure tickets for an event. Our joy is in helping our customers have an amazing time in Kyoto and Japan. The travel buddies Our travel buddies are all people who love Kyoto and enjoy showing off all that this great city has to offer. We offer inside knowledge on the most popular sights and show you some of the hidden gems that make this one of the most attractive travel destinations in the world. The Difference We know that getting long lists of names and dates from history is not only difficult to keep up with but can be downright boring for those who don't have much prior knowledge. Rather than a translator you get a travel buddy who is still discovering Japan too. While we love to help you learn more about the significance of each place we try not to make it a history lesson. We try to bring those places to life with candid stories. We also enjoy discussing the modern culture of Japan and do our best to introduce you to daily life in Japan, especially the fun parts. Join us and let us entertain you with tales from the past and present while having a laugh along the way.
