Before working as a Certified National Tour Guide, I had worked for seafood industry with experiences of visiting many countries, such as U.S.A, Canada, Norway, U.K., Holland, Poland, Russia, Chile, China, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and others…. As well as visiting many foreign countries, I also visited many places all over Japan, from north to south.
I used to live in the east coast of the U.S. for participating in master’s program for International Community Economic Development where I met people who had various backgrounds from various countries.
With those experiences, I think I have very good communication skills for people from various cultural backgrounds. And, those experiences inspired me to become a guide to introduce Japan to people from all over the world. I am a Certified National Tour Guide who is authorized by Japan National Tourism Agency which is an external bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. I also have a license of domestic itinerary administration manager. You count on me and let's explore Japan!

“ Kamakura Historic Tour ”

Shoji's tour of the Historic Kamakura was excelent. Being unfamiliar with traveling in Japan, Shoji picked me up from my hotel in Tokyo. We then traveled by public transport to Kamakura. He was friendly, very knowledgeable, and did his best to give me the best possible tour. It was excelent!!


Dear Gerard, Thank you for your warm words. Thank you for choosing my tour and it was so pleasure to guide you in Kamakura. I really hope you come to Japan again and to see you then! Shoji Kiyota
