Great for families, private groups, and team-building events. A shorter format is available if necessary. Please inquire if your desired time is not shown. ※ 5-star ratings from guests representing Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Apple, Airbnb, IBM, Starbucks, Amazon, and others. We begin our magical adventure strolling under the cherry blossoms, a quick visit to a Zen monastery and then a walk through the famed Saga Bamboo Forest. Then I will share insider access to a mountain temple that is far off the radar of most visitors to Kyoto. Through my close relationship with the head monk I will share with you the fascinating story of this temple that has never been told in such depth in English before. To Preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6FerLOBBPk Founded over 1,000 years ago and abandoned during WWII, what has become of this temple since the war is absolutely amazing. I will share high-quality HD videos that I have produced which include vintage clips from 40 years ago when this temple was being restored. As we end this experience I will pass on a wonderful offer from the head monk for when you visit Kyoto in the future. While traveling through space and time, this is your chance to experience true peace and tranquility.

This experience changed my life in a profound way. After working in the gardens of Kyoto for thousands of hours I will now share with you deep insights into the world of Japanese gardens as we immerse ourselves in a Zen temple that is far off the beaten path. As we spend time in one of Kyoto's finest gardens that was created hundreds of years ago by Zen monks, artists, and nobles, you will feel peace and serenity. Once we are finished you will certainly never see stones, plants, and water in the same way again. ※To Preview: https://youtu.be/otSGHlMtHWE As there will be plenty of time for discussion, this will be a meaningful experience considering Japanese design, philosophy and history while virtually exploring landscapes of unparalleled beauty.

  • Forest Bathe in Kyoto's Sacred Mountain
    Most tourists visit Fushimi Inari Shrine for the thousand torii gates, but rarely do they delve deeper into the shrine's history and tradition. Learn about Shinto rituals and how forest bathing is done at one of Kyoto’s oldest shrines (founded 1,300 years ago!) I have recorded high-quality video that will make it seem that you are really at one with the forest at Fushimi Inari. We will visit shrines for various gods to learn what Shinto gods are like, witness the rituals used to appeal to them, and see 2 ways that people have tried to speak to the gods here. I will be narrating live throughout and you can ask questions anytime. We will look at 5 ways people meditate here at Fushimi Inari, and you’ll learn to how do mindfulness meditation at a sacred waterfall in a secret part of the shrine that tourists normally miss out on. We will sit together for just a couple of minutes so if you’re new to meditation this is a perfect way to get started. Once you've been on this you'll be able to practice forest bathing wherever you are. ✔ Interactive experience with quizzes & activities ✔ Celebrate birthdays & anniversaries in a meaningful way - also perfect for couples ✔ Learn surprising things about Japan's gods and forests ✔ Highly-rated for team-building by teachers, therapists, and groups from Amazon, Airbnb, Facebook, Google, IBM, Mastercard, Oracle, Salesforce, Spotify & more...

  • Walk Around the Ancient Capital of Kyoto
    Why don't you relax at home with a coffee while virtually “walking around“ Kyoto? Usually sight-seeing areas in Kyoto are packed full of tourists, but now there are few visitors due to the pandemic. Because of this very rare situation, I made a 1-hour video walking around Kyoto's major tourist area "Higashiyama" while it was unusually quiet. As a guest, you can watch this unique video while I explain various fascinating spots live. There will be a fun, interactive 10-point quiz interspersed along our journey! If you have any questions while you’re watching the video, I am happy to answer them live for you. Higashiyama is a quaint area where the old streets of Kyoto and ancient atmosphere still remain. It is a must-see area for all sightseers to Kyoto, Japanese and non-Japanese alike. Besides famous sightseeing spots such as Yasaka Shrine, Yasaka Pagoda, Sannen-zaka Slope and Kiyomizu-dera Temple, I will also introduce you to some “secret spots” that are not well known. You don't need to prepare or bring anything - just a cup of coffee or your favorite drink. Please relax and join us. Other things to note While guiding around, I keep showing the video on this tour. So I recommend a high-speed Internet access. Also, using a tablet or a PC is recommendable. A mobile phone screen is OK, but maybe too small for some people.
