Hello!
I was born in Shiga next to Kyoto and now live in Yokohama, which is located between Tokyo and Kamakura, with my family and two cats. When l was a university student I went to US as a member of goodwill envoy and there I had got unforgettable experiences with local people. Helping my host mother get dressed in kimono was one of them. These experiences made me think to become a guide in the long run.
I had got National Guide Certificate in 2014. Since then I always tried to make guests satisfied and hope they go back to their countries with good memories.
