Living in the central part of Japan, I am naturally best informed about Mie, Aichi and Gifu prefectures. However, I lived in Tokyo for 12 years so I am also familiar with Tokyo, Kanagawa and Chiba prefectures.
I have guided my guests to Asakusa, Ueno, Harajuku, Meiji Shrine, Yasukuni Shrine, Lake Hamana, Lake Biwa, Ise Shrine, Takayama city, Toba city, Shima city and so on.
Well versed in alcoholic drinks, I can take my guests to intriguing, traditional gastropubs “Izakayas” especially selected for them with scrumptious dishes perfect for their chosen drinks!
Hooked on the mysterious or spiritual? Let's visit power Spots, sacred locations and places never introduced in publications, many where tales of legendary historic heroes or spiritual icons have been worshipped for millennia!
Let’s talk about Tengu, Kappa, Musashi (and Bruce Lee), marriage vow renewal, and endless topics. My command of English and understanding Western practices have been continuously polished through my 20-year marriage life with my Australian partner.
My biggest pleasure to help visitors make unforgettable memories with tailor made tours.
I was born and brought up in Kanazawa, and live in Kanazawa. So,I know every corner of this town. I am a national licensed tour guide. I started operating tour guide business in 2004 after retired from the local government office. I enjoyed hobbies when I found my spare time. In my twenties and thirties, I walked along many peaks of Northern Japan Alps during the summer mountain season. I travelled many places domestic and abroad. I also enjoyed skiing while I was in my forties and fifties. I have offered tour guides to over 1,000 tourists since I started tour guiding. I explain local history and culture, religion, traditional arts and crafts, and food, etc. I try my best to have customers' satisfaction, and make your tours enjoyable and memorable.Hokuriku Shinkansen bullet trains started operating between Tokyo and Kanazawa on March 14, 2015. It takes about 2 and half hours. You will be able to make one-day tour to Kanazawa from Tokyo. I look forward to having your application.
I am a government certificated tour guide. I love cooking, eating, meeting new people, discovering new culture, finding fresh seasonal dishes at hidden restaurants and bars! I especially am good at guiding locally popular eateries and restaurants cooking local/fresh ingredients (Fresh seafood, mountain vegetables, locally grown vegetables) into wonderful dishes either traditional Japanese cuisine or great Japanese ingredients with modern flair.
I've traveled around the world twice and visited about 30 countries. When I think of my best memories in my past travel experiences, it's always meeting/ talking with the local people and experiencing new culture. Now, I'm in Japan! This is my time to prepare the wonderful experience to my guests! I'd love to show you around the famous places, as well as hidden gems or bunch of restaurants/bars/places loved by locals. I would be more than happy if I can help you to experience real Japanese life through my guide. I'd love you to have a great stay in Japan:-)
