Kana HAYASHI Travel Consultant
Hello there! My name is Kana. As a Kyoto native, growing up right near the iconic Tō-ji Temple, I had the privilege of having historical landmarks as my playground since childhood. During my university years, I had the amazing opportunity of studying abroad in the United Kingdom, and during the summer and winter breaks, I traveled extensively throughout Europe. The rich history of Europe left me captivated, leading me to pursue a career as a tour operator specializing in the Middle East and Europe after graduation.
As I've grown older, I've come to deeply appreciate the incredible blessing of being born and raised in Kyoto. Amidst the bustling city life, passing through the gates of temples and shrines feels like entering a different world—a world of tranquility and serene beauty that I adore. It has become my hobby and lifelong passion to seek out the unique flowers and landscapes that each season brings, creating unforgettable memories.
Nara, with its peaceful atmosphere, abundant nature, and friendly deer that can be found throughout Nara, offers a serene escape even more tranquil than Kyoto. In Nara, time and air flow at a leisurely pace, allowing you to immerse yourself deeply in the essence of Japan and forget the daily hustle and bustle. It would bring me great joy to be a part of creating unforgettable memories for you and helping you experience the true essence of Nara.
I look forward to showcasing the seasonal delights of Nara and introducing you to its hidden gems.
