If you wished you had a close friend in Japan to give you an insider’s tour of the country, you’ve come to the right place. My name is Chris Rowthorn and I lived in Kyoto for 20 years and I still spend part of every spring and fall there. I’ve written 19 guidebooks for Lonely Planet about Kyoto and the rest of Japan and I produce InsideKyoto, TrulyTokyo and InsideOsaka. I offer private tours and travel consulting to help you create an unforgettable trip.
