Then Edo Castle became the Imperial Palace.

Hello, all foreign tourists.
I’m Takashi, a certified guide interpreter.
I’ve practiced guiding through volunteer guides at various places such as the Imperial Palace, Meiji Jingu Shrine, Asakusa, etc. in spare time from my main job since 2013 when I got the license of the guide interpreter.
However, with my retirement from main job, I can fully dedicate my time to English expert guide.
It’s been my dream to communicate with foreigners since childhood.
Therefor I've been developing my English proficiency for a long time by listening to English conversation radio programs.
I would like to take advantage of this opportunity and do my best for you.
