Hi! I'm Yuuji Adachi.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

You may be interested in Japanese art. But some famous area in Tokyo should be always crowded with other visitors. If you have about 1 hour in surplus to move, you can quietly enjoy some traditional Japanese culture and art without crowded people.
Next to Tokyo, we are in Saitama city where you can get from Tokyo in about 30 minutes by local trains, even directly.
One of the biggest stations in Japan is Omiya station from which you can get to a shrine, Japanese landscape garden, Japanese style food stall and cute zoo for free. Then you are taken to Bonsai art museum.
Visiting shrines in the morning is an important key because they still have natural power.
Like ones in Tokyo, all of them are wonderful but unlike in Tokyo, all except Bonsai art museum allow you to experience for free!

I've been engaged in sales in the trading company and the manufacturer and I've often taken care of special guests overseas.
I used to fly into some Asian contries and Germany and got some friends.
My clients said they would like to come to Japan sometime in the future in order to learn about "Japan", which was the main reason why I became a licenced guide with a thinking that I would like to invite them to Japan.
Nowadays I'm torally facinated by something wonderful in Japan and escorting overseas' guests.

I'm familiar with Japanese food being not only luxuarious but affordable as well.
Let me know what you would like to bite, and realize your wish by watching Japanese traditional and innovative, something unforgettable, and wonderful hustle and bustle lives. .

My other licences are as below
TOEIC: 955
Sightseeing geography (Japan): 2nd grade
BATIC (Accounting test in English) : Account Manager Level
