WALK IN KYOTO TALK IN ENGLISH was started by Mr. Hajime Hirooka as known as Johnny Hillwalker born in 1930. He had worked as a professional tour guide exclusively for JTB for 34 years. After retiring from JTB in 1996, he started his private walking tours in Kyoto. Since then he has guided over 28,000 guests from around the world through the backstreets of Kyoto. We have decided to invest in the tour, and started a project to further enhance the value of such unique tour.
