Hello! My name is Takeshi. Please call me Tony.
My hometown is Tokyo. I worked for a Japanese company for more than 30 years. Before joining the company, I received a master's degree in engineering in the United States.
After retiring from the company two years ago, I began working as a licensed guide interpreter in English for foreign visitors.
I would like to guide you to places you are interested in and share with you the Japanese culture in my guided tours.

Hope to see you soon.
