Welcome to my homepage.
For me, meeting with people is a gift from God.
A new encounter inspires me and enriches my heart.
People sometimes ask me unexpected questions I can't answer on the spot.
New encounters are, in a sense, a kind of continuation of embarrassment and bewilderment.
As a tour guide, going around with people is like an adventurous journey.
Those who I met stay in my heart with good memories.But I also would like to stay in your heart.
Yes, every encounter, solo or group, is a glow of jewels.
I taught at senior high school. Good teachers are not always a good scholar, one time a comedian, another time a hero, like a spiderman.
I'm an expert in history, culture, and religion.
Why is Japan so mysterious?
My tour is full of smile, humor, laughter, and lectures.
I'm also a lover of music and a chi exercise instructor.
Why don't you try chi exercise with me? read more
