About

Hi! I’m “Chuji”. I’m a “National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter” from Feb. 2018. The reason why I got this license is very simple. I would like to welcome foreign tourists by my genuine hospitality!
My home town was Osaka and I spent college days in Hikone(Shiga prf.), famous for the Hikone Castle. Now I live in Kobe, so I’m very familiar with many sightseeing spots and attractions of Kansai area including Kyoto and Nara, and furthermore, Kochi of Shikoku island where I lived in there for 6 years.
I visited many cities in all over Japan and overseas during my business career and private trip. Through those experience, I am interested in Japanese history, culture and geography, besides I love cross-cultural communication!
Please let me help you enjoy travel in Japan whatever your interest is.
See you soon!

“ Fantastic local guide in Kobe ”

We were delayed getting off our cruise in the Port of Kobe and Chuji was patiently waiting for us. He was very knowledgeable of the area and sights that we saw. We covered a lot of ground and moved quickly because of the delay in getting off the ship. He was also willing to adapt our pre arranged schedule to help us find a shop that sold good quality knives at reasonable prices. We enjoyed our time with him and would highly recommend him to anyone. For reference our party consisted of 4 adults and one teenager. Thank you Triplelights for connecting us to a fantastic guide. Thank you Chuji

CHUJI:

Dear Suzanne, Thank you for writing review on our nice tour included seeing sunset view from observatory. I am very happy to spend a special time with you. Please enjoy your staying in Japan! Chuji

“ A great day with Chuji ”

We had less than a day in Kobe and we wanted to be guided to the highlights and Chuji did just that. He was well prepared and very informative and gave us a full day visiting the Maiko Bridge, Kobe Port, Motomachi, sake brewery and even time for a Kobe beef lunch amongst other things, like the bakery. What topped it off is he graciously guided us from our end point of the tour, our hotel, to the bus terminal that we needed to leave from with all our luggage. Such service!!

CHUJI:

Dear Claire, Thank you so much for writing review for me, and for your cooperation on that day! I also enjoyed visiting places with you and your friends. I wish I can see you again some day. Best regards Chuji
