About Mediator
Hi! My name is Kiriko. I have been working as a certified private tour guide in the Kansai region since 2019. I was born and raised in Osaka until I was 18 and then went to a university in Thailand to study Tourism Management. After graduation, I came back to Japan and worked at a company in Tokyo for 2 years, but eventually came back to my sweet home town Kansai to become a freelance tour guide. I’m specialized in traditional culture, food & drinks, and nature of Japan where I pour my passion into. I’m especially in love with Kimono (Japanese traditional clothes), Tea Ceremony and its history, Japanese Sake, and nature explorations like scuba diving / mountain climbing. I would be more than happy to share Japanese beautiful culture and history as well as delicious food and breathtaking nature with you!
