I have been an Interpretive Tour Guide for over 20 years. I have lived in Japan for nearly that amount of time broken up by a 12 years stint in Hawaii for 12 years. Still came over every month bringing tours though. I provide private, interpretive guiding services for English-speaking visitors in the Kansai region of Japan. I am a Shrine and Temple professional.
As an ex-Executive Assistant Food and Beverage Manager/Director, I know food and I know Japanese Sake and I want to show you how fun and interesting Japanese food and sake can be! My minimum is eight hours and I do not do half day tours. I promise your time with me in-depth and informative, but we will make some amazing memories while we are at it.
I also do KYOTO, NARA, ISE, as well as OSAKA.
I was born and raised in Kyoto.Kyoto has a lot of things to see and experience. Kyoto is an ancient city with a lot of world heritage.
I am happy to show you both traditonal aspects of Japan and modern things.
I use public transportation and I am good at walking.
Also I am very flexible.
Hi, I’m Chizuru Morofuji. Please call me Chizuru. I’m a government licensed guide and I’ve been working as an interpreter guide for seven years in the area of western and southern part of Japan.
I love my job and I enjoy meeting people from various countries. I have an experience to study in the U.S. for two years. During my stay, local people gave me a plenty of help and kindness. Thanks to their help, I was able to finish my study there. Now it’s time to express my appreciation to people who need help.
I love the word “Ichigo-Ichie、（一期一会）”, which means “Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur”. I’m sure, I’ll do my best to make your experience in Japan the most wonderful and enjoyable one.
Let’s have wonderful time with me! I’m looking forward to meeting you soon.
Hi, I'm Yoko, a National License Tour Guide.
I speak with an American accent, 'cause I lived in Seattle, Washington for six years in my childhood(3-9 years old). My tours might be better with people who love to walk.
Now I live within a walking distance from Ueno Park, Tokyo, so I see a lot of International tourists walking around in my neighborhood every day.
(I'm giving some discounts on some of the tours, and I would appreciate if you could see things better at a reasonable price and I'm keen to introduce the places, so PLEASE CHECK EACH TOUR. The expenses are spelled out, too.)
"Tokyo is larger than we thought and the transportations are so complicated," Swedish guys told me. I'm here to help you. I know well about Tokyo, Yokohama, Yamanashi etc. and I travel most of the parts of Japan.
I would appreciate if you could see more sightseeing spots with me as your guide and enjoy your stay.
I love to answer your questions, even though I became nearly breathless when I was with American guests, a family of three, curiously asking me questions after questions:-)
I appreciated their interest in Japan very much.
I also go mountain trekking for twenty five years. I've been to the summit of Mt. Fuji and Mt. Kitadake three times. Talking about Mt. Takao, maybe more than fifty times.
I hope we can enjoy the beautiful view together.
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon and having a good time together.
Hope to hearing from you soon.
