Please let me know the subject which you would like to probe, at least a couple of months prior to your travel. Depending upon difficulty level, I may need a certain preparatory period. As I reside in the centre of Tokyo area, I can be relatively flexible in guiding as far as Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura, etc. As for visits to other regeions such as Kyoto and Hiroshima, you need to bear more incremental costs. I will be happy to discuss your budget constraint issues in advance.
This walking tour is fitted for those who have a certain knowledge on the Japanese situation before WWII.
Those who have a keen interest in the prewar history in late 1930's. particularly those who would like to know why Japan entered the war, will be welcomed.
We will visit Yusyukan Museum at the Yasukuni Shrine. The museum is closed on June 25-27 and December 26-31, 2019.
