Hello ! My name is Akira, but please call me Aki. I am a national licensed tour guide in English. I am specialized in Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Kobe and Hiroshima. When you have a plan to visit those area, please contact me. In those area, you can find a traditional and cultural Japan. I will guide you wherever you would like to visit and you can enjoy Japan with me for sure.
I worked for an export company for more than 30years and met many people from overseas who were interested in Japanese culture, history and buildings. So after I retired, I decided to become a tour guide.
Please let me know what and where you are interested in so that I can arrange it for you, and make your itinerary which you will be satisfied with.
In my spare time, my hobby is Japanese martial art Aikido (black belt 2nd grade).
If you are interested in Japanese martial art, I am pleased to talk about it with you.
Looking forward to your inquiry.
Thank you so much for reading my introduction, and I look forward to sharing my country with you.
Shall we make a good trip with a nice memory ? I would like nicely to tell you the whole image of Japan when I share your time so as to make a pleasant memory. I was born and raised in Wakayama. I have lived in Osaka city and some other cities of area parts and Hyogo such as Kobe, Nishinomiya and other parts when I worked for a bank and cram schools and also, was a University student. And I made a short trip to various Kansai area such as Nara and Kyoto and so on, moreover a long trip to Kanto area such as Yokohama, Tokyo and Nikko. So I am knowledgeable about especially Kansai area, where there are some present-day major cities and other age-old or traditional major cities. They abound in awesome spots to see.
Let's enjoy various type of tours. My hobby is to walk around minor part of towns as well and mountainside to refresh my life and watch sport game such as baseball and soccer game, not just indoor game. Though it is my routine daily rule to watch TV and read books for tourists, as I have lived in foreign countries, I would like to focus on what you might be thinking about. Kick off our project for fun.
Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.
I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.
Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.
When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !
These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.
I'll be looking forward to seeing you !!
