Hello! My name is Keiichi. Please call me Kei.
I was born and raised in Joetsu City, located in the southern part of Niigata prefecture. Joetsu was the former capital city of Echigo Province until the mid 19th century. It has a lot of historic sites and scenic spots, and most of all good people. I love my city very much.
I worked for the Joetsu City office for over thirty years. During my time there, I was in charge of international relations for about ten years. After retiring from the office, I began working as a licensed tour guide. I am very excited to introduce my city to people all over the world.
Hello, I'm Yuichi, an English tour guide in Hokuriku region.
If you are thinking about traveling to historical places
such as Kanazawa, Shirakawa-go and Takayama, I am willing to offer a tour.
I can bring you to those popular destinations
from my base, Toyama city.
These are the examples of my tour:
Kanazawa - Shirakawago - Takayama
Takaoka - Gokayama - Shirakawago - Takayama
Toyama - Tateyama Kurobe Alipne Route - Omachi (Nagano Pref.)
During the tour I like to provide simple explanations about Japanese history,
and small tips for using the Japanese language on your request.
My interests are food, cooking, sake and wine
as well as Japanese novels and movies.
It would be possible to add those tastes to our tour
including a visit to local wineries, movie scenes, etc...
Finally, I will do my best to give you a pleasant stay.
Looking forward to seeing you in Hokuriku!
The Hokuriku area is blessed with the beautiful nature surrounded by mountains and sea, as well as the delicious foods of agricultural and marine products indigenous here. In addition there are traditional industrial products with high value and the sophisticated culture which has been handed over for many centuries. I will introduce and appeal those attractiveness of Hokuriku region to foreign tourists with my utmost hospitality.
In the other viewpoint, there are a lot of companies and organizations acting internationally in this region. I will also work as a interpreter to help their business discussion and international communication.
Through those works I would like to contribute toward advancement and development of this Hokuriku region.
( Besides English I am ready to work with Indonesian language learned during my stay in Indonesia more than 10 years.)
