A day in the life of an awesome Japanese Tour Guide

by Richard

Well, hell. I first came to Japan in 1983. Lived here for sixteen years, went back home to the Grand Canyon and starting guiding. I have taken 20,000 people to the edge of the Grand Canyon, I have taken 20,000 people tot he top of Hawaii's Mauna Kea for stargazing tours. Yes, I know, I rock.

I started guiding in Japan in February of this year. Since I have studied and practiced Buddhism for 35 years and know more than most Japanese (and I mean nearly all) about their own History and mythology and Shinto Beliefs, and definitely know Kansai, I decided to kick some Shiitake here in this beautiful area we call Kansai.

I love people, I love showing people fun things, I love Japan and I love Japanese Sake. Seemed like the perfect fit and so here we are. I will start this blog with this little excerpt and we will go from here...... yes, that is a Japanese Craft Beer located right below the most sacred Shinto Shrine in all of Japan in Ise. Lets go!

Richard could not have been a more friendly, knowledgeable, customer oriented guide ,during my time with him. He is very punctual, and adaptable to the needs of his guests. See the real Kyoto with someone who can do the everyday tourist type itinerary to the behind the scenes of what Kyoto us really like. Highly recommend his services.
