Japan is one of the most fascinating countries on earth. But, it’s just about impenetrable to the average visitor. I have lived in Kyoto, Japan, for over ten years. I have written several editions of Lonely Planet’s Kyoto and Japan guidebooks. I have spent my time here searching out the best gardens, temples, walks, restaurants, shops and accommodations. I have designed several walking tours that take in the very best that Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and Tokyo have to offer – some must-see attractions that lie on the beaten track, but lots of secret spots that are unknown even to most locals.

I can also provide restaurant and accommodation recommendations and bookings. And I can take you to the best and most interesting shops, where you can purchase wonderful Japanese products, both traditional and modern, for yourself or the folks back home.

Please join me for an inside look at this wonderful country!

Please note that this is a private venture operated by Chris Rowthorn. It is not operated by or affiliated with Lonely Planet guidebooks.
