Hello, I’m Kazuhiko Goto. Please call me “Kazu”. I'm a national-licensed tour guide. I have a wife and 4 children.
I was born in Osaka city, although I have lived in many places across Japan, such as Matsue city which is famous for beautiful Lake Shinji and Izumo Great Shrine, Niigata city which is famous for delicious rice and Japanese sake, and Kurume city which is closer to many hot springs and the active volcano, Mt.Aso.
Now, I live in Hikone city which is near Kyoto. This city faces beautiful Lake Biwa, which is the biggest lake in Japan
and the city's main feature is Hikone castle, whose castle keep is a national treasure.
My home town, Osaka city, is one of the largest cities in Japan.
This city has been known as the city of “Kuidaore” which means that people in Osaka ruin themselves by overspending on food.
As the name suggests, there are unique dishes, such as
Tecchiri (globefish boiled in a pot), Kushikatsu (deep-fried skewers of meats or vegetables), Takoyaki (octopus dumplings), and
Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake with various ingredients).
In Osaka, there are also many famous spots, such as the huge Osaka castle complex, bustling Dotombori pleasure resort area and the Umeda Sky Building whose twin towers have a unique shape
Moreover, Osaka is near the historic cities of Kyoto and Nara and the port city Kobe, which is filled with an air of exoticism.

I have guided many foreign tourists as an English tour guide for 2 years since taking an early retirement.
Why did I aim to obtain this license ?
While working for an electric company, I often went abroad on business trips to the U.S.A., Thailand, Hong Kong and China,
I received a lot of kind support from local people.
Therefore, I have thought I should return the favor and I have been thinking about how to do it.
Fortunately, I have a depth of knowledge of many places across Japan, since I used to live there as mentioned above.
Moreover, I am interested in Japanese history, culture, and geography, and I also like intercultural exchanges.
I decided to become a tour guide for foreign tourists, because
I would like to make them happy.
I think that this is a suitable job for me to return the favor to people.
Now, I take delight in doing this job, and I have found out that I can take advantage of my experience and knowledge .
I believe that you will fully enjoy your tour in Japan with me.
Please join my tour !!
