Description of this tour
Away from busy and bustling big town, immerse yourself in the wild nature of Hakone, a very popular tourist resort place located 90 km from Tokyo. There you can enjoy the scenic beauty and breathtaking view of Mt. Fuji with steam gushing out of the pocket of volcano and around The Detach Palace Garden, which gives you a refreshing feel.
Hakone is a popular all-year tourist site. Firstly, it has many hot-spring resorts which many date back to some 1200 years ago. Secondly, it has beautiful scenery like the Lake Ashinoko and Mt.Fuji viewing. Thirdly, it has easy access of 35minutes by Shinkanse, 80 minutes by Romance-car and unique transportation such as the rope-way , pirate boat, mountain train and cable car. Lastly, there are various facilities such as the art museums,historical sites and a choice of experiencing the hiking or tea ceremony and etc. These attractions make you feel comfortable.
I used to work as a part-time English teacher at a high school for about 25 years. As I am a certified national government licensed interpreter, I have worked at Odawara Tourist Information Center since 10 years ago.
Over the years working there, I have accumulated knowledge and experience specializing in guiding visitors in Hakone and Odawara regions. I like meeting foreign countries visitors and let them know more about Japan and local culture.
Besides guiding, I have many hobbies which I will like to share. They are calligraphy by using ball-point pen, wearing Japanese Kimono and especially using the Kimono fabric to make up simple dresses, cooking home-cooked dishes, Ikebana - Japanese style flower arrangement and teaching Japanese to foreigners.
I look forward to having a chance to meet you and wish you will enjoy your trip and have a fabulous memory.
