My name is Emiko, owner of KYO ANTHU Inn. I studied English abroad at Toronto, Canada and worked as a Japanese Teacher for a year in Thailand.
I love travelling different countries, meeting new people and experiencing various cultures.
My travel experience abroad inspires me to build KYO ANTHU Inn.
So, in that way I would be able to help and accommodate travelers who wants to enjoy the beautiful city of Kyoto!

My younger brother is a banker and lived in Tokyo. He loves playing golf, baseball and travelling abroad.
My grandmother is a 90-year old woman who loves eating meat and fish which is her secret of having a long and healthy life.
I've been learning the Japanese flower arrangement which is called "Ikebana" more than a decade and been starting to learn tea ceremony a year ago.
With these skills and talents, I can provide and share the traditional Japanese cultures if guests are interested about it.
About any other experiences in Kyoto, my previous company taught and shared a lot of culture classes such as sushi making, calligraphy, Kimono wearing and so on.
So if you're interested , please don’t hesitate to ask me any kind of Japanese cultures you want to know and learn.
I’m very happy if I could help and boost your interest about Japanese cultures and traditions.

We stayed with five adults in the family room 4 nights. It is very spacious with 35 m² +2 bathrooms, (one is 8 m² and like an onsen). Everything is brand new.
We walked from the central station to the house with our suitcases. Emiko and her parents spend much time with us. They answered all our questions about Japanese customs and whatever we wanted to know on our first stay in Japan.
We can highly recommend this family because they are lovely people.
