What you'll do

Dear travel-lovers, It's time to travel online, Come to online Kyoto! On my ONLINE experience we can visit many traditional attractions without leaving where we are. Technically I will show you my neighbor around where I live in Kyoto via my edited video. I will reveal the history, rituals of Japan and provide many interesting facts and a deeper understanding of Japanese Shinto shrine and Buddhist temple through the secret or small details that are often hard to notice. I would like you to know how unique Japanese gods are. For an example in Kyoto there is a god called Sutoku, he actually lived for real 900 years ago was the 75th Japaneses emperor (The history of Japanese Royal family over 1500 years) but after his death he became very notorious god for punishment...I will show you the video that I'm guiding and tell you much more interesting details! We will virtually visit Yasaka Jinja shrine, Yasui-konpiragu Shrine, Yasaka Koshindo temple a lot! Hear history-telling with my personal life experience story, I was born and raised in the countryside of Japan, my family has been a traditional rice farmer over 200 years, I would like to share the stories were told by my mom and grandma.
