Description of this tour
・Tokyo is an attractive city with newness and antiquity coexist. Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi, which are in a downtown district of Tokyo, are collectively called "YANESEN", and have become a popular spot for downtown strolling.
・There are many shrines and temples in this area, including the family temple of the Tokugawa Clan "Kaneiji" and "Nezu Jinja" shrine which was created 1900 years ago. One of the main spots is "Yanaka Ginza" shopping street, which is crowded with both men and women, young and old, as there is everything from old established shops opened 100 years ago, to modern sweet shops. Many cats also gather at the "Yuyake Dandan" staircase, which is a sanctuary for taking pictures of cats, located at the entrance of the shopping street. Once you get into a small alley, you can see the everyday life of Japan.
・The tour is a half day tour either in the morning or in the afternoon. Starting at Ueno station, onto Ueno park and Kaneiji temple, followed by strolling around the Yanaka area. The tour will conclude at Nippori station.
・I had a big interest in other cultures since childhood. I liked to learn foreign languages and wanted to communicate with foreign people to expand my knowledge about other cultures.
・I had been engaged in overseas-related work in the computer industry quite long time. When I was thirty's I had a chance to live in San Francisco, America for four years. At there, I interact with people of various nationalities. At that time, I truly understood that "respect and trust" is very important to communicate with people who has a different culture and different opinions.
After I retired, I decided to become a tour guide, and I took the National certificate in February 2017. Since then, I have been in this tourism business a year and a half. I intend to communicate with tourist to let them know about Japan as a tour guide with hospitality mind.
