Overview

San- in District (Tottori and Shimane prefectures) is rich with virgin nature, historic sites, newly established facilities and marine activities. This tour is designed for visitors who have interests in traditional Japanese culture in the countryside. My special recommendation is Adachi Museum and Matsue Castle.

What to Expect

★ You can see the ultimate and enchanting Japanese garden at Adachi Museum. The garden has been ranked as No. 1 Japanese garden by an American garden magazine.
★ You can explore various historic spots in Matsue City which is also called "small Kyoto".
★ You can experience a real tea ceremony at a historic tea house built 200 years ago.

Highlights

  • Adachi Museum (breathtakingly beautiful gardens and Japanese paintings)
  • Matsue Castle (one of only 12 original castle keep in Japan)

I was born and live in Ttottori prefecture which is at the southwestern part of Honshu Island. Our area is rich with virgin nature, purely preserved culture and amiable people.
If you are weary of crowds in big cities like Tokyo, please visit our area to get the slow life and healing. Of course, you can explore various unique activities, too. I worked for a TV station for 37 years and produced more than 1,000 programs dealing with this area.
After retiring, I became a tour guide for foreign tourists. I love history, mountain trekking, igo(board game) and travel. Would you share wonderful experience with me in San-in(Tottori and Shimane) District?

“ Kyoto Customized Private Tour ”

My friend and I booked a 6 hour custom private tour to specifically visit the Sagano bamboo forest in Arashiyama, Tenryu-ji Temple, and the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. Shun met us at our hotel and we made our way to each spot via the train. At the Sagano bamboo forest, he mentioned that there was an option to see Okochi Denjiro's (famous past silent film actor private villa. We decided to do that and the views were great! The experience also included matcha tea overlooking the bamboo forest. Overall, it was super helpful to have a professional guide navigate the way, which in turn, creates a stress free experience. I highly recommend Shun. Prior to the tour, we communicated through email and he was very accommodating. He also took great pictures for us and picked out a good lunch spot. The tour was definitely worth it!

“ Customized tour to kyoto and nara ”

Our trip to osaka, kyoto and nara was made memorable by Shun-san. He was very accomodating with all our requests... from meeting us at a place in osaka so we wouldnt get lost to arranging our itinerary to fit all the places that we want to visit in kyoto and nara for 2 days. Happy and grateful to have him as our guide. We wouldnt have covered a lot of places in 2 days without him... He was also very knowlegable about the places we visited and constantly provides us with great insights on japanese culture and language... hope to get him as our guide again on our next visit to Japan. :)
