Kyoko Atsumi

Languages:

I am a Japanese Blue Badge guide based in Edinburgh. My guiding area however, covers all over Scotland. Also, my qualification allows me to guide in both the English and Japanese languages. I love history and archaeology and love to take you to all the interesting and beautiful places in Scotland. 
You may find my UK mobile phone not working. That means I am in Japan. If you could not reach me by calling my UK mobile number, please contact me via email.
