Hello my name is Shinichiro Yamana, very long, so please call me just SHIN.
I was born in Kobe, international port town, and grew up in Kyoto, 1000 year old capital in Japan.
Now I live in Kawasaki city, between Tokyo or Yokohama. That's why I am familiar with all tour courses in the east Japan and west Japan. My olden Kyoto villa near Silver Pavilion welcomes you to visit and get relax on the Tatami mat floor with a green tea. After I retired from Japanese steel company as an steel engineer, I have been enjoying a nice international job, tour guide, which greatly changes my life and opens my eyes widely because of getting to know a lot of wonderful visitors like you from all over the world.
