Hi, I am lisa!
I am Professional Tour Guide in Tokyo.
I am originally from Osaka which is western largest city of Japan nearby Kyoto.
I went collage in Kyoto where I started my tour guiding career.
I moved to Tokyo in 2010 and I currently live here.
I work in marketing and promotion filed for living but at the same time
I have been working as a tour guide.
I really like to meeting new people, talking to people, I like cross cultural interactions.
And I also have some knowledge about Japanese history and geography
Which I believe to add some fun to your trip with.
When you think about Tokyo you would come up modern, new, leading edge metropolis,
But Tokyo has 400 years of history and Japan itself has more than 1600 years of history.
You will see a lot of traditional aspects in this modern city too.
I want to pick these characteristics of our unique cultures while walking around with you and try to explain them based on our history and geography.
I am looking forward to seeing you. Join my tour! See you soon.
