What you'll do

I moved to Kyoto city northwest side, near the Kinkakuji, and start to explore the neighborhoods for daily necessities but end up finding a variety of interesting places that foreign visitors normally ignored. I want to fill this gap and showing visitors who come to this area some interesting places to take a deepest view of Kyoto. Compared to Japanese texts and explanations, translations to other languages leave aside some crucial details, most of them concerned to Japanese writting system. I want to explain some details hidden in the ideograms forms at the Daitokuji, Imamiyajinja, and Funaoka hill. I will share some historical and mythical facts that I have been discovering. The walk ends in Kuramaguchi street, where there is a traditional craftwork gallery, funny stores, stylish cafeterias, fancy restaurants and a historical public bath, where you can relax before continuing your journey. I want to make video takes of your experience to edit a short movie. I like movies because I think that watching them makes instant connections to our memories in a vivid and deep way. You can check out a video sample on my Youtube channel. You can find it easily typing "walk movie kyoto" ;)
