So, what is a Kyoto Visitors Host? Their motto, “Bringing Joy to Travelers” embodies the attitude and personality required to complete the City of Kyoto program. Kyoto Visitors Hosts are given 6 months of training, both in-class and at historical locations. 6 months seems like a long course for those who have already been working in the tour guide industry, however Kyoto has such a vast number of cultural properties that 6 months is well justified.
