Hi! This is Minako. I’d like to walk with you in Japan.
I’m a licensed English guide and English teacher at the private junior and high schools. I usually teach at school, so why don’t you go out with me on Sunday? It could be crowded on Sunday, but Japanese trains are punctual! Now I’m on vacation! Let’s enjoy Japanese summer with Minako!
Japanese history as well as western and Chinese history are my favorite. Moreover, I can tell you the latest trend in Japan, because I can get much information from my students and my own kids aged 18 and 15.
Let’s enjoy new and historical Japan with me!

We had a very happy celebration of my dad’s birthday thanks to Minako. She prepared well for the trip and was able to guide us to a unique experience of brewing in Ibaraki. We could not have been able to enjoy the experience as much without her help. She came prepared with tickets and materials and also visited the venue before the trip. We are quite happy and would recommend her any time.
It is I, Minako, that am full of gratitude for the wonderful experience. I'm so impressesd with the caring of Jeb and his brother toward their parents. I hope my rebelleious kids will grow up to be such kind adults like them. And someday my kids as well as Minako will welcome such a brilliant family in Japan again. Love, Minako
