I've got the license of tour guide in English in 2013. Since then I attended a volunteer group which is providing a tour in the Imperial Palace East Gardens that used to be Edo castle. I guided more than fifty times in the garden as a volunteer and have deep knowledge of Japanese history and culture.
I was born and grew up in Yokohama and I visited many places with my family. I used to work in Tokyo for more than 20 years. I have more than 20 tours to Hakone and Lake Kawaguchi and have been improving my tour. Therefore, I am sure that I can provide you the most impressive tour around Tokyo. It will be my great pleasure to help you to enjoy your stay in Japan. See you in my tours!! read more
