Hello, I am Yoshihiro Kashiwai. Please call me Yoshi.
I was born in Kochi Prefecture, in Shikoku. Now, I live in Matsuyama City in Ehime Prefecture. I joined NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation) and later NTT Docomo, INC. I worked for the company in sales for a total of over 40 years and lived in 4 Prefectures (Ehime, Kagawa, Tokushima and Kochi ). I know very well about each prefecture. So, I am a good guide on Shikoku.
After retiring, I gained the guiding license and have been enjoying working as an English guide. I love practicing my English, and am interested in everything about Shikoku including history, culture, nature, etc. I am also a big fan of Shuhei Fujisawa ( a popular Japanese author of historical fiction ).
The purpose of my life is to show overseas guests a wide variety of Shikoku.
I am looking forward to welcoming tourists from abroad to Shikoku.
