Would you like to have an unforgettable experience in Japan?
I am Japanese born and bred but have spent happy years in Canada and the UK bringing up children and introducing Japanese culture/language at local schools.
I love hiking, traveling, eating and interacting with people so guiding is a perfect job for me. ( I'm a Government Certified Guide Interpreter.) I can take you to all the must-see places as well as quaky places in and around Tokyo. Making a plastic food sample, joining a bon dance at a summer festival, hiking at Mt. Takao followed by a relaxing hot spring bath....There are so many things to offer!
You will have a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and a better experience, if you have a friendly professional guide like me!
