Hi! I'm Sunny.
I was born in Ehime and have worked for two International associations in Shikoku for more than a decade.
I also worked for a big travel company in Tokyo as a tour leader of an overseas specialist as well as a high school as an English teacher. I'm an energetic and cheerful woman with optimism.
Numerous foreigners (almost 900) register for my workplace and I have been committed to the improvement of their quality of life for years, which makes myself quite familiar with foreigners.
I love people most of all living things on this beautiful planet, the earth. I would like to cherish the opportunity to meet people who share same time and space as a treasure. What a wonderful thing it is! This is called “Ichigo Ichie” or “a once-in-lifetime chance” that I like best.
I would like to meet as many of you as possible and appreciate the blessing of the earth, the culture and history Man created through the tour with you.
I'm under the flexible work shift,so that I can arrange the tour schedule according to your request such as duration, destination and contents in order to accompany you. I can also arrange not only the sightseeing but also homestay so as to experience Japanese life style. The tour that I think the best is to provide the customers to experience something with flexibility as well as visiting some places.
Shikoku still has so many mysterious places or primitive nature to explore. You can notice Shikoku hold mixed culture of traditional countryside and up-to-date life. Please come to secluded region filled with a lot of superior hospitality called Omotenashi to feel relaxed out of the hustle and bustle life. Why don't you experience the time warp with me to good old Japan?
I'm really looking forward to seeing you, treasure hunter! See you soon.

Looking for the perfect guide while your ship is docked in Kochi? Choose Sunny! 3 senior couples had a FABULOUS day with Sunny. We toured the Godaizan Chikurinji Temple, climbed through Ryuga-Do Cave, and visited Kochi Castle. Our last stop was the viewpoint from beautiful Katsurahama Beach. Thanks to Sunny, we have memories that will last a lifetime. Her English in perfect and her personality is charming. As an additional bonus.....she takes EXCELLENT photos - just ask her!
Dear Claudia, It's so nice to hear from you. How was the cruise tour? I hope you enjoyed a lot in other cities, too. I appreciate your heartfelt comment, which is the best and priceless one for me. I also had fun with you and that became one of my treasure. Your group was so~~~ nice and happy GANG! I wish you could come back to Japan someday and hope to see you again. Take a great care and say hello to your wonderful party. : D Warm regards, Sunny
We were able to make perfect time as we bounced around Kochi. It was a very pleasant experience and informative. She is a delightful person.
Hi, Thank you very much for your message with high evaluation and I really had wonderful time with you, too. I suppose you are in Korea and having a good time there. I hope you will have precious journey for further days with unforgettable memories. Have a nice trip and hope we will meet you again. : ) Best regards, Sunny
Sunny was the most conscientious, hard working personal guide we ever had, and we had had the pleasure of over 80 private guides, touring umpteen countries across 6 continents, over the past 20 years. That was no small feat indeed! She spent countless hours prior to our trip, planning and customizing our six days with her, down to the smallest details. She managed to fulfill, within practical and feasible limitations of time and distance, more of the requests on our wish list than we imagined possible, during the short six days. We simply cannot give her any higher commendation!
Hi, Donald! Thank you so much for the superior complement! The memory with you two and your priceless words are my treasure. Let me say sincere gratitude to you and I hope to see you again. Take a great care and stay healthy, please! Thank you very much for the energy bar, and I won't forget that nice taste. : D To a happy and wonderful couple, cheers! Best regards, Sunny
Sunny was very pleasant and easy to work with when we planned our visit to Kochi. She was very thorough and an excellent communicator. She was flexible and tried very hard to accommodate our requests. Definitely recommend her.
Hi, Jerry Let me say thank you for the wonderful tour, first of all. I really enjoyed a lot with you and happy people. Is everybody all right with legs? It was tough to climb up the hill and castle tower, isn't it? I hope your safe and wonderful journey in other cities, too. See you again! Best regards, Sunny
Sunny speaks good English and is cheerful and positive. We enjoyed the day in Kochi with her being our guide at the botanical gardens and castle.
Dear Sylvia, Thank you for the review and best compliment. The memory with your family is my treasure! I'd love to meet you again not only in Japan, but your country. Many thanks, Sylvia. Hope to see you someday again. Say hello to your nice and cute family. Best regards, Sunny : )
